lots to tell you today! first of all, i went over to patty's on tuesday and made some new pmc charms. i'm very excited about them!
this is the "live your love" charm necklace,
with fine and sterling silver, labradorite, artisan glass and deerhide lacing
i just love this little jumble. it's quite heavy and fun to mess with.
i have a fabulous friend melynda that i can't wait to tell you all about. she is an AMAZING designer/ seamstress. she makes incredibly beautiful clothes. anyway, she asked me if i would model some of her items and came over today to takes some photos. she snapped this one for me with the necklace on. she made the tank (from a recycled t-shirt) and the skirt. more about her later!
this one is so cool! this is a vintage glass cameo, in relief. the clear glass is frosted, giving it a wonderful look and feel. when you first look at it, it appears to be an elegant mother playing with her child. but when you look closer you see the baby actually as wings, a sweet little cherub. don't we all want to think of our children as little angels? and ourselves as carefree goddess mothers, floating on clouds?
good ol' abe lincoln said that.
i couldn't resist these cabs when i saw them. i have a few more, so if you're interested in having a custom piece made for mother's day, just let me know. we still have time.
a new "petite resolve" ring,
with beautiful rose cut labradorite
"your peridot heart"
this one has apatite, and a sweet little star
also, today was career day at hazel's school. she wants to be a writer. so, we put her in a kind of preppy little outfit, with pens on her shirt pocket and pencils in her hair. then i busted out the lenses of an old pair of sunglasses so she could look "intellectual".
and, i did a demonstration of my career for her class. it was so fun.
and, my three year etsy anniversary is on tuesday!
so hard to believe. to celebrate, i am having a big sale. see my shop for details!
we are leaving tomorrow to go camping in the desert for the weekend. then on monday i leave for my next little mini felice brothers tour. i'll see them in salt lake city on monday night and denver on tuesday. then i'll be home again for a while (at least until their next tour!) have i mentioned how grateful i am that i have a husband who supports and even encourages this love of mine?
