Funky Fish

This little fishy looks like he could swallow the whole hook in one try - much fun to make and, as always, love the bright colors.

Totem Pole Owl

My take on a totem pole figure - at least that's what I was aiming for. All my beads, natural stones, silver & crystals … an impressive piece to treasure for a very long time.

Asymmetrical Sunflower

Oh what fun. I love making this design … altho it takes a really long time and it's a real pain in the patootie. Still hold my breath while making some things, and this one's close to the top of that list, but I still love it. Anyone ready for spring yet?

Zebra Raku

Love this piece - a compilation of organic randomness and structured stripes.

Mixed Up Jumbled Awesomeness

A beautiful jumble of lampwork, natural stones, semi-precious, crystals, silver. A mixed-up jumbled awesome piece … and it's reeeeaaally long to boot!

Beach Fest Beads

This big 'ole starfish pendant is another 'end-of-day' bead. I love the really large slashes of color, and the added little twist at the bottom is my attempt at a wave.

Seascapes Ready for 'Beach Fest'

Had a call for an order for one of these and realized I'd never pictured them before - oops. These are my seascapes, thought I'd do several for the 'Beach Fest'. Hope to see you there! Please stop by and see what else is new.

A New End of Day Bead

New year, new end of day bead. I love the colors on this focal, and pairing it with some pearls is also new for me. The pearls have no sterling mixed in with them, for ease of cleaning. Alllllways thinkin' . . .

Couldn't decide if I liked the etched or the shiny pods the best. You be the judge and let me know. Did a survey on Facebook and the etched won. Either way, I really like this new set - very striking - kinda funky and cool.
