Rustic Wear

I have never been one for jewelry that sparkles and shines, 
but the idea of these rustic necklaces quite excited me.

And so I made a bunch

And now I just have to decide which one I want to keep for myself.

An Unexpected Quiet

I have been working about 70 hours per week for the past month, 
and have missed having time and energy to create. 

Today I didn't work, and I have been busy creating. 

Paint, pastels, and ink meet up on these tea bags,
creating a piece that I am donating for a 
fund raiser for our local ski club. 

The frame the ski club provided me is a deep frame,
so I decided I needed to add some natural elements that have some depth.
So a couple of rocks and a beach stick were added.

And it is now headed to the fundraiser that is taking place in a couple of days. 

I called it 'An Unexpected Quiet'
Perhaps that is because that is what it gave me as I worked on it
or perhaps because that is what the place that the image depicts gives to me. 

Either way I have enjoyed An Unexpected Quiet today.

Stone Pins

I have taken some small stones
added some of my birds 
and put a pin on the back

They can be worn alone

with a friend

or in a group.
