New Items Available!

Last week, I was able to add two of my favorite pieces of art to my pages on Redbubble and Society6. Please do stop by and check them out. I’m working to add most of my art and photography to the sites but it’s slow work indeed with our wonky internet.

Here are the two pieces of art now available on my pages. You can visit the pages by clicking on the link for each site in the caption under each photo. Thanks for stopping by!

Tutorials: Hard Work!

I just finished putting that photo tutorial together on my personal blog and you can read it here, if you like. What a lot of work! I really, really appreciate all the bloggers who take tons of time putting those together so that the rest of us can try and create new and wonderful things. If you do choose to take a look at my personal blog, keep in mind you’ll see my personal opinions there. I have no intention of offending anyone with my own opinions but “you can’t please all the people all the time.” I enjoy making things and I love the idea of photo tutorials. I think, though, that considering the fact that it took me approximately 2 hours to do the photos and 3 or more hours to put everything together in my blog post, I won’t be doing too many of them.

I will be working on a jewelry set for a special event which is coming up soon. Our theater group hosts an awards ceremony every year and it’s a pretty fancy event. It’s a lot of fun! So I’ll be using bright aluminum to create the pieces for this event and if I can find some Swarovski crystals which will really add to the pieces, I’ll be using them as well. I have the base pattern down in the earrings but I’ll have to make sheets for the bracelet and necklace. They’ll take a considerable amount of time to put together but should make nice conversation pieces when completed. Wish me luck!

The rosettes are bright aluminum rings and the smaller rings that connect them together are stainless steel. I used silver-toned lever back earrings to finish them.

The rosettes are also called Mobius Weave by some. If you’d like to learn more about why, here’s a link to some info on the mobius strip.
