My new model

I had Paige model these earrings for me. I’m pretty pleased with the way they turned out.




I think she’ll work out.

She’s been working hard with rehearsal’s for  Suessical the Musical, and sitting for me to take pictures of my earrings (not easy, it takes me forever to get it right). Busy girl.

Hope you all have a lovely week-end.

Where oh where has my living room gone?

Paige was here on Wednesday and had fun being a clothing designer. She used my mannequin that I display jewelry  with. She’s such a fashionista.






She’s my great pal and we always have fun together. We have a lot in common. We both love going to the antique shops in town, having lunch at McKinley’s, also in town. And, Barnes and Noble is another hangout for us. Half-Price books gets our business too.

But just hanging out to be together may be my favorite thing to do. BTW you’ll be seeing more of her since I’ve decided to use her as my model to get photos of my jewelry.100_2816

Now, on to the question of where did my living room go?

Tyler and Grandpa have a new toy. Thomas the Train……


Of course, They can’t put it away when they’re done playing because the track would get messed up. We can’t have that after all the trouble they went through to build it.



Hmmmmm, there’s a truck on the track….What should we do?????   100b2890

I think for these two boys I could get used to a train in my living room.

Time with Ty

Hubby had a day off yesterday so we had Tyler spend the day with us. Went to the farm down the road to buy some watermelon and corn to have with dinner. They have a petting zoo there and we stopped so Tyler could feed the animals.


100_2750  We had a good time. It was hot out so we couldn’t stay to long. I think he looks so cool in his shades. I must say he ate well at dinner. Besides dinner he had his fill of the wonderful juicy watermelon and corn on the cob,fresh from the field. Mmmmmm.

100_2759 Our DIL gave us some tomatoes and a red pepper that she grew in containers on their deck.I cooked up  the pepper with some olive oil,Italian seasonings and garlic. Oh so good.

Hope you all have a lovely week-end.

I made baubles

I took more pictures of some of the baubles that I’ve made. Take a look…..

These are fused Argentium and copper. Very light~~~I try to make all of my earrings lightweight.  No stretched out earlobes here.


Here’s another pair that I really like. These are Argentium Silver with copper bands fused into it. For textural interest I’ve hammered them and added three small holes in each one.

A couple more

Here are a few more of the pieces that I’ve been working on. These little copper and sterling flowers are very light and easy to wear. I thought copper would be nice for the Fall.



This pendant is made of fused Argentium and copper.  I really like the fusing process and really get into the zone when I’m doing it.


I’m hoping to get a few more photos today. It’s a hot one here in Kentucky so I’m sure I’ll be indoors for most of the day.  Hope your all having a great week-end.

I’ve been working---Honest

So, really, even though I haven’t been posting a whole lot, I’ve still been working and producing jewelry. Here are some pictures to prove it.

100_2712100_2677100_2682 100_2696

I’ve got shows coming up in the fall that I’m very excited about. One being in Midway, Kentucky. An adorable little town, where I currently, have jewelry displayed at Damselfly Gallery.

I’ll be posting more about that and other shows that are coming up in September.

So, what do you think of the new stuff? I’ll post more as I get the pictures.

A Musical

Good news..... Our sweet as pie granddaughter, Paige, auditioned to be in " Seussical the Musical" , at our community theater, and got a dual roll!!!! Yes folks, not one but two parts to play. We're all so proud of her and she's so excited that she's about to burst. Rehearsals start on Thursday. I'll keep y'all posted on her progress.
