Art and Adornment inspired by Nature & Fantasy

Something to think about

I saw something the other day I haven’t been able to get out of my mind.  Driving home from watching my grandsons, I saw some commotion in the road ahead of me. There in the middle of this two lane busy road was a tiny Yorkshire Terrier running back and forth in the road!! Cringing [...]

Spring Fairy Necklace

I love pastel colors and the weighty feel of certain gemstones. So, while digging around in my box of goodies pulled out these amazing adventurine nuggets that I’ve been saving for a rainy day. On a recent trip to one of my favorite findings manufacturers, Wolfe E Myrow, I also grabbed some gorgeous fire polished [...]

Faerie Slumber

I thought I’d share a new little piece I’ve been working on.   It’s a faerie child wrapped in a maple leaf and asleep in an oak leaf cradle.  The faerie is 3″ long and was sculpted using Kato clay with Genesis heat set oils for added color.  I really prefer this clay now for [...]

FAE Magazine and Silas…

Musings on my exclusive feature in FAE MAgazine and the never ending antics of Silas, my grouchy house brownie…

Waning Days of Summer

Hello my friends!  The spring/summer has come and gone and I’ve been a very bad blogger, so forgive me dear readers for my extended absence, but now I am back. I’ve been busy with family, spending time outdoors,  working on new pieces, and experimenting with polymer clay techniques.  Ah, the sweet joy of success…and of [...]

Forest Dryad Pendant

A quick snap of a piece I created for my mom. She found this leaf and thought I’d like to use it in my art and I thought it would make a pretty pendant for her in turn. The bail is sterling, it’s accented with quartz faceted beads, and the adjustable ribbon is hand dyed [...]

Pay it Forward

I was talking to some of my friends on Etsy the other night and they were asking how many of us had a PIF in their shops. Now I like to think I’m fairly savvy about Etsy and things in general but I was stumped. What the heck is a PIF? It turns out PIF [...]

New Leaf Ornaments

I finally was able to list some new leaf ornaments in my Etsy shop today. For the past year I’ve tried to do my art full time and although I’ve definitely made forward progress, I can’t keep up with the economy, so off I’ve been to job hunt. Tedious, boring…necessary. Anywho, here are three new [...]

Lady of the Woods

Thought I’d post a few pictures of a piece I’m working on. I went for a walk yesterday and found some beautiful Birch tree and Silver Maple leaves to imprint. I have a few more tweaks to do, then I’ll create the bail and necklace pieces. I also decided to do reversible leaf pendants, for [...]
