It's Like Cotton Candy! (without the mess)

Part of my new fiber addiction has included roving. (A cleaned and carded wool used to felt.) I have been dyeing my own roving. Once I get started I can't stop. there so many beautiful colors to make, and when they are all together it looks like a rainbow of cotton candy. I have been using my roving for needle felting and creating felt beads. They are available for purchase on my ETSY site. Here are a few samples.

Let's Summer Accessorize!

This new bracelet wasn't supposed to be for me, but it looks so great on that I can't seem to give it up. It has a graphic tree design on the center tile. The colors are bright and bold turquoise and green, along with brown and white. The bracelet is adorned with sterling silver jump rings, chain and clasp. But don't fret, there are more on the way!

Customs vs. Creativity Vs. The Move

Things are picking up and at this very minute I have 8 orders I am working to fill. It's great to get some affirmation that people like my work. I have also had interest from a woman in France, to put my line of pet ID's in her webstore. (Keep an eye out for that)

While exciting! ... it couldn't come at a worse time. I am gearing up for my move cross country, Ohio--> Utah, in a month and a half. So I am wrapping up my orders and will have to put custom orders on hold until I get settled in out there, and have my studio in working order. ( I might need a house first, hmmm)

I have had to postpone all shows as well. This is the most heartbreaking part for me. My work gets such a better reaction when seen in person, and I really can't wait to get it shown at a couple of shows. I wish I had pushed harder to get at least one show in while I was in Ohio, but my schedule has been hectic. So it looks like by debut will have to wait for the mountains.

I have been filling several custom orders which has kept me away from adding new items to my shop lately. I have a beautiful new bracelet and a couple pair of earring ready to be posted. I am also working on some new coaters and wine charms. Hopefully I will have time to put them up next week.

I have a lot of other events coming up that are going to take me away from my artwork for a while. This weekend I am helping run an Easter Egg Hunt for my community. It has been so much work. But you should see how much fun it is for the 1000 kids who attend. I will be sure to post pictures. Then following that I have a few business trips and a wedding to attend. This will be a tough month for me. Must stay scheduled.

A New Line of Jewelry

I am designing a new line of jewelry. My first pieces are splashes of bold color and simple modern design. My jewelry is constructed of natural material, primarily wood. I have several pieces in the works for a spring bohemian collection. They will be added to my shop soon. Just like my home decor items, every piece of jewelry I design is a one of a kind. If you are looking for unique gifts, and accessories you will find it here.

I have several custom orders in the works so additions to my shop will be on hold until those are complete.
