I'm getting ready to head to Chicago for the Create Retreat. Here are some of my recent works that might be making the trip!

I finally finished my piece for donation to Art Unleashed. This event raises money for the Humane Society of KC. More info. is on the link under "buy my art". Its a really fun event. Well worth the ticket!
My mixed media assemblage shrine is a tribute to my love of Scotties! The shrine incorporates parts of a childs tea set and one of my soldered glass reliquary necklaces featuring a antique scottie dog. On the back is the quote "Toto, I don't think we are in Kansas anymore". Hanging from the bottom of the pendant is a tiny ruby slipper charm.

The water lilies in our pond really love the heat and humidity that we are experiencing. The many frogs that live in the pond love to float on top of the large green leaves. I am taking a break from jewelry making to go antiquing with my friend Glenda. I hope to find some new treasures for my creations. I will be adding more goodies to my Etsy shop soon!
