Two Treasuries in One Day

Two treasuries in one day, is a good way to start out a Monday. My Victorian Snowflake was featured in Deb Kaplan Designs Treasury "Its Metal Clay Day Hurray." Below is some of Deb's work.

Treasury and Surgery Updates

Karena of kaleprimitifs was sweet enough to add me to her treasury. My Bronze Shield Pendant is in the upper right hand corner. Also in Karena’s treasury is Christine of Chocolate and Steel, cute stud earrings. A family emergency has kept me away from my blog lately. My husband tore his Achilles tendon while playing basketball. He was in surgery last Friday. I am happy to report that the surgery went fine but my poor husband will be in a cast for two months. Not being able to work in his wood shop is driving him nuts. I have convinced my husband that crutches and power tools don't mix and hopefully he will have a speedy recovery.

Below is some of Karena of kaleprimitifs work. I love her bronze work, she has the cutest stuff. Thanks again Karena for the Treasury inclusion.

New Work Continued

As a result of the trunk show, I put pressure on myself to come up with some new pieces in my shop. I came up with six new pieces. I would love feedback on them. Below is my little sparrow pendant and my Victorian snowflake pendant. The sparrow is molded from an art nouveau pin and the snowflake from a Victorian button. I'm unsure about the title Victorian snowflake. Does this title go with this piece? I started calling it snowflake and so it stuck that way. I love my little sparrow. Hopefully this weekend I will have my Koi fish in my store. It has taken forever to match my bronze fish with the right beads and necklace design. I am going to place the Koi fish in a three strand blue stone necklace. I will post it when it is done.

New Work for the New Year

I have been a very bad blogger. I have however been extremely busy. Last Thursday we had our second Etsy Metal Clay Trunk Show. I think it went well and everyone had fun but preparing for the show and getting new items into my shop has been pretty time consuming. I have added several new designs to my shop. I am still on a Victorian button kick. But I really like some of my results. My two new favorite pieces are my Bronze Peacock Feather Pendant and my Victorian Lace Pendant check them out below.
