cast glass pendants, fused once – then they will have sharp edges ground off & be fire-polished before they are finished
My art offering to Jacoby Art Center’s BRAS ON BROADWAY breast cancer awareness fundraiser – blown, pressed, dichroic glass, recycled chandelier crystals, pearls, lace, wire, beads, brass, & many hours!
After being part of Bras on Broadway during October 2013, this bra will be donated to South Hampton Health Care Center in St. Louis, Missouri, where I have been a patient for almost 25 years.
I have one more jewelry sale this year – and this one is for an excellent cause – 50% of proceeds will go to hrlp with travel expenses for college students selected for a regional theater competition –
I will be at Concordia Lutheran Church, Hwy 140 & Circle Drive, Cottage Hills, IL, Sat. Dec. 8 9-4PM
Kerry Ellen, proud auntie of one of the students, theater lover, & former thespian!
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)
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.
my true love gave to me —-
a good razzing for committing myself to this 12 days of Christmas silliness…but since I said I would do it – better late than never (almost 9 PM)…
my “faux jade” cluster pendant – available for purchase now at the Jacoby Arts Center Holiday Sale – 627 E. Braodway, Alton, IL.
