Finished – fused twice, wire-wrapped, ready to be a pendant for some lucky wearable-art lover!
new mixedmedia work – stained and fused glass with brass dragonfly “Sadness flies on the wings of the morning and out of the heart of darkness comes the light.” (Jean Giraudeaux)
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.
my true love gave to me…
a “come hither” mermaid necklace handmade, enameled on fused art glass, so the design will not wash off or wear off – this and other mermaid necklaces will be for sale at the Green Gift Bazaar at the Riverbender community center oat 200 W #rd st., downtowsn Alton, 10-4, Sat. – Nov. 24.
Come hither and shop local, shop handmade!
here is an example of the old becoming new – I used a vintage clip earring (the gold leaf) – gifted to me by an 84-year old gentleman – it had belonged to his late wife – and I surrounded it with Swarovski crystallized green and gold pearls. Volia – a necklace that blends something old and something new!

One of the Crystal Cluster necklace, earrings, and bracelet sets I made this weekend –
I placed Swarovski crystal element pearls around an antique marquisite pin (bought at the Elsah, Illinois, historical society sale) with a crystal dragonfly and butterfly – the color assortment was named “Under the Tuscan Sun” and includes beautiful autumn shades of warm golds, greens, coppers, and ivory. Necklace, bracelet, & earrings $50 for the set.
This will be one of my crystal clusters available this weekend at the Wine and Art Festival at the Bretz Winery near Carlyle Lake, Illinois:
