Copper Necklace

This necklace was inspired by a young guy that walked into the Garden of Beaden. However his did not have any other metal attached to the front. His was stamped on the front with metal stamps. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. I loved the way it rolled over on top so that you were able to put a chain through it. Being that I love hearts I had to add that to mine. I wish I could remember his name in order to give him due credit. Though I'm not sure he made it either, but it did so inspire me. The picture behind it is my mother when she was a little girl...

A small book for Quotes

This little book is for those witty quotes or that clever phrase that we read some where and don't want to forget. It is just the right size to put in your purse and carry where ever you go. For the cover of this book I used nickel silver sheets with a little distressing, torching and adding this cute little ballerina. I found her at the Whimzy swap meet and fell in love with her, and now she adorns my quotes book. I did add a little color ink to her dress to pick up some of the color in the book.

The Girls

Nothing like spending a great day with you're friends! I've been so fortunate to be able to teach at the Garden of Beaden. This has been a great class the " Treasure/Journal Book". I have been able to incorporate so many learning techniques in this process. Not to mention it has been so fun. Thank you ladies for a wonderful day and allowing me to share my Art with you. Thank you Jessica Needham, Sue Windsor-Lau, Irene Sanchez (owner of the fabulous store) and Melissa, and Crystal. It was a great day!! Much Love!
