Happy Easter!


HAPPY EASTER FROM GUINNESS!

Wishing you all a beautiful celebration of life today and always.  Spring (although very slow to arrive here in the Midwest) is making its entrance.  The earth is waking up from her long winter's nap and color, YES, color is finally peeking through the remaining grayness of winter.  Welcome, small buds, daffodils and the sweet melody of early morning birds singing.  I love you all.  

I've been so busy, with not much time to work on my "passion" as much as I would like, however, I've slowly been creating some new pieces as time permits.  Here's a sneak peak at some of my favorite new pieces, still works in progress.  I'm also including a pic of my very first METAL CLAY piece!  I had the pleasure of taking some classes at a new jewelry art studio located in Crystal Lake, Illinois, The Constant Muse.  I'll post separately about this incredible experience, but I at least wanted to share the piece I'm affectionately calling "Clio", mythical name of the muse of poetry and history.  

"CLIO"  
I learned how to rivet!  My first assemblage cuff made with a vintage shoe clip!


I LOVE her...

STAINED GLASS PIECES




ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITES!

TILE...YES...TILE FROM HOME DEPOT.  AN EXPERIMENT!

SOLDERED CRYSTAL
Stay tuned for completed pieces...it might be Christmas, but they will ultimately be finished :-)  Have a positive, happy and magic-filled week.
