Coming Up Soon - Gallery in the Garden!

A new adventure; a new endeavor.  I have been accepted to participate this year in a wonderful art event, "Gallery in the Garden", located at 600 Lawndale Avenue, Woodstock, Illinois.  Now in its sixth year, all artists who participate in this event donate a portion of all their proceeds to "CASA" (Court Appointed Special Advocates of McHenry Country).  CASA, founded in 2005, provides trained volunteers to advocate for child victims of abuse and neglect in Juvenile Court and in the foster care system.  I am so excited to be part of this very special event.  I've been working diligently on some new items, specifically for the Gallery festivities (July 30th and 31st).  I'd especially like to thank Patricia Lynn Eagle, an incredible jewelry artisan and instructor at The Constant Muse Art Studio in Crystal Lake, IL.  She recommended my pursuit of this particular show, and I truly appreciate her encouragement.  

My first decoupage dress form!  I really wanted one for display.  She took a long time to make!
Stained Glass Pendant - I really love this color!

Etched Metal, Riveted Cherub, Soldered Stained Glass
Another Etched Metal Pendant - My Favorite, I Think!

Hope to see you there!
