This and That

I've been busy making more necklaces and decorating paper for journals. I've combined the two in these photos. I still have to finish decorating the papers, I'll being adding more stamped images. I had a bit of a clean up in my studio over the weekend so that I could at least see the bench top, I don't know how long it will last.




This little chap was in a tree near our deck, he/she has made a nest on top of a cupboard on our verandah. It usually spends the day there and then comes out at night, but for some reason it decided to check out the garden in day light.
The ring tail possums are such beautiful little creatures and not as large or as noisy as their brush tail cousins.

Looks wonderful Ro - bet you are working very very hard. I clean up my studio then start a piece and, well you know what happens - mess everywhere.

Maria said...

I love both necklaces! They look especially pretty against the papers :-)

Sharon said...

As usual...stunning pieces. How did you motivate to do a little cleaning? I can't seem to manage.

Gaby Bee said...

Your necklaces are spectacular, as usual. Love them both, but especially the turquoise one.

Ro, those necklaces look beautiful. I am the proud owner of your locket earrings. They were made so well -- light as a feather and very well balanced on the ear. I love wearing them! You are a very talented lady.

Yum, love the necklaces and the exotic tree creature. xo

I adore your necklaces! Nice little critter in the picture. Nothing at all like that in Florida, though we do get armadillos, opossums, raccoons, gators, black snakes, and an army of lizards. (And I'm just talking in our neighborhood!)

Sam Marshall said...

Oh and I love the possum.

Sensational necklaces Ro, the journals look pretty fab too. Your work is inspirational.
I love your sense of colour...what a gift.
Love the ring tail too... those eyes...too cute.

there's something to be said about cleaning up and then getting it all messy again...i've resigned myself to the fact that this is just a part of the whole cycle of creativity!
Thanks for sharing the photo of the possum...he looks so soft and sweet and understanding.

All those wonderful little trinkets on your necklaces, RO, so much patience to piece them all together, so cleverly.
Your little possum friend is gorgeous.

Your necklaces are just incredible Ro. The papers make them even more outstanding. Your talent is amazing. I come to your blog to be inspired daily. Your studio is absolutely fantastic. Keep up the great work.

What lovely necklaces, Ro. I also love how you photographed them. And your possum is beautiful, so much prettier than the ones in San Francisco (yes,in the back yards!) where we visit my husbands family!

Robyn said...

What a thrill! I love that possum!
Your jewellery is always so gorgeous and lavish. Wearing a piece must make one feel very special.

kate said...

abundance...that's the word that came to mind when I saw your lovely necklaces.

Artastics said...

An artist that captures the elements of life in her jewelry and all of nature in her papers. An absolute pleasure to view your creations. Thank you for sharing...

Stunning work, as usual. What an adorable little cuddly creature... but he is probably not as safe to cuddle as one would think!

Hi Ro, I've always loved your necklaces and these look like so much fun to wear!

Your possums are so much cuter than our possums. I snapped a photo of our resident raccoon coming into the screened back porch for a visit. The photo is on my blog.

Great possum shot. So often they are a blob in a tree when you try to photograph them.
