On the 9th day of Christmas…

my true love gave to me:

 

a beautiful fused glass pendant, dark cobalt blue background, white and gold enameled butterfly, that was in two juried art shows in 2011 (Jacoby Arts Center and The Glass Workbench) – because I love beauty and butterflies and glass and Christmas is all about connecting with the ones we love, thinking about what they would appreciate, what would bring them joy, and because butterflies have always meant hope to me…

(for sale – contact me if interested)

 

On the eighth day of Christmas…

my true love gave to me –

a compliment on one of my recent creations – a gold choker and some beads and a piece of fused dichroic glass, golds and deep teal and bronzes on a china red base – quite festive-looking, without being traditional Christmas jewelry…and even 3-D…

When I made the necklace – I started out to do one thing, but this piece wanted to go its own way, so I just went with the flow, and got the heck out of the Muse’s way – it’s the wise choice!

The photo doesn’t do it justice.  Available for sale, with matching crystal earrings, $35 plus S/H.

On the 7th day of Christmas…

my true love gave to me…

a “Peace on Earth” necklace, made from a rhinestone peace sign and a silver & gold-plate globe* –

*Vintage jewelry gifted to me by my 84-year old friend, who wanted me to re-use his late wife’s old costume jewelry in my art – thanks, Jimmy and Helen

On the Sixth Day of Christmas…

my true love gave to me —-
