My Etsy!

Well, I've taken the jump into Etsy at last! It took about an hour to get my site up and running. I only have one necklace listed but hopefully I will get more things listed soon. To visit my shop click on the link under the "Buy My Art" header!

Here are some pendant necklaces in the making. I have spent the last couple of days finalizing about 75 pendants getting them ready to solder. I think I will start soldering on Sunday. I have 4 upcoming shows now so I will need to amass a big inventory. In between working on jewelry I have been on a "Blythe Mission". I have decided to buy a Blythe doll to photograph for use in my jewelry. I like to use doll faces in my "Gear Girl" series. (See above) Owning and photographing a doll will help me get images for this series. Currently I hunt through doll magazines for images to cut & paste. SO I went on a Blythe quest. I had NO IDEA how hard these dolls are to find. The harder it became, the more determined I got. I really was afraid of the online auction dolls as most where from Hong Kong merchants who don't seem to speak English. My worry was that I would end up with a fake Blythe. So long story short, I found one at a Japanese Toy store in NYC. So I know have a Blythe! I must figure out her name and I want to get her customized! There is a whole new world out there of Blythe devotees. See my Blythe Blog List for more information!

I've Been Busy!

I have been holed up in my studio slaving away to make my Soldered Glass pendants for my upcoming art shows. I love the gathering and planning process more than the actual creation part. I really get so many ideas zipping around in my head while digging through my bins and drawers of stuff. I am excited to be participating in 2 major Art Retreat Shows. I love road trips and I will be road tripping to Chicago & Minneapolis soon! See the links under buy my art!
