Who holds the key to your heart





The family has gone home and quiet reigns once more. It's so lovely to have our big family get togethers each year, my brother and sister don't have any children, so my two daughters and their children get spoilt rotten, which is lovely to see.
I've been cleaning up my studio over the past two days, now I have two weeks holiday to just sit back and create.
The photos are of a necklace I've completed and is now for sale on my Etsy site.
I treated myself to a Keith Lo Bue dvd and it arrived a few days ago. I'm so impressed with Keith's work. I'm enrolled to do a whole weeks class with him in September 2008, thanks to Jen Crossley who told me about the course, I'm looking forward to meeting Jen again, we should have a great time.
Back to my nice clean studio and more jewellery.

You have the neatest things to attach to your jewelry. I'm working on cleaning my studio too. Can't seem to stick to it though.

Hi-
Beautiful necklace!
I also purchased the Keith Lo Bue DVD. Can't wait to receive it. He was the inspiration for my beginning to work at assemblage.
Happy New Year and all the best to you in the new year.

p.s. I'm trying to get organized in my "studio" too. Hmmmm. Seems to be a collective mindset around this.

Have you rusted these charms yourself? The colours are amazing, and I particularly like the key and the flower.

tascha said...

What beautiful jewelry! I love the mix of materials!

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog. It's after work (trading time for money) here and I'm visiting your site marveling at your stamping and paper napkin tricks. How do you get the patterns on those keys? I just love your necklaces. I think I'm going to have to have one. : )
I'm off now, inspired by you, to create another stamp. - femminismo
