Gratuitous Dog Pictures - My boys

Vinny is much easier to photograph than Harley. I just have to hold a tennis ball out of sight and he will stare at it forever.

Harley Leroy

This is my newest rescue Harley Leroy. It is hard to get a good picture of him because he does not remain still for very long. He is a year or younger, not sure. Full of energy and very clever. He has been up on the kitchen counter (ate half a loaf of bread). Then he got hold of a bag of doritos. He got up on top of the dining room table and ate a half pound of assorted chocolates which got him a trip to the vet. He is learning, just needs some structure and lots and lots of love.

Jack Jack

How could you not absolutely, unconditionally love that face.

Cross my blue heart

This necklace gets a lot of attention. I made the cross first in hopes that I would find the perfect beads to match and I think I did. It has some ceramic beads (the large circle one I made myself) It has some antique blue flower beads. Glass beads and repurposed beads. Along with the pewter lock and pewter chain. I have it priced at $45.00 + shipping costs. Free delivery to locals.

It has been pointed out to me that I do not make enough red items. Since red is probably my least favorite color, it is hard for me to get inspired by it. So, I challenged myself to get some red beads and make a variety of earrings for the next Artwalk. I ended up making about 20 pairs of earrings and 1 bracelet.

Going to Hattie in Minnesota.

I plan on making many more of these in a variety of colors.

Silver Circles and Black Beads

This necklace sold at the July Artwalk.

Very Southwest

I love this necklace!!! I wish I could wear it. But, I do not have a long skinny neck. This is a very short necklace. I haven't measured but probably 15 inches. It would look fantastic on a skinny necked person. I have it priced at $30.00 + shipping charges and as always free delivery to locals.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

I love the fall feel of this necklace. Kind of reminds me of pumpkin spice latte's, hence...the name. The different shades of browns. This would go with so many fall colors. Glass beads, wood beads and the custom made cross, chain and wire wrapping, brass and leather all together in this three tiered necklace.
Priced at $45.00 + shipping costs.

This one has sold to a very sweet, interesting, colorful lady at the July Artwalk. I'm just sorry I did not have more time to talk to her or at least get her name.

Sweet little bracelet made with some repurposed black and silver beads.

Sold to Amber.
The blue color of these beads is completely intense with the copper chain and copper washers. I must find more of these beads!!!

Blue Iridescent Bracelet

This bracelet has an iridescent glow to it. The picture really does not do it justice. I like to match circles and squares up together.
Priced at $15.00 + shipping costs.

Red, White and Blueberry

Sold to my good neighbor Barbara.

Plum Purple Bracelet

Various shades of purple beads and brass components make up this bracelet. There are some beautiful repurposed beads mixed in that add just a little shine.
Priced at $25.00 + shipping. As always locals get free delivery.
