Week Seven of My "Weekly Creative Challenge"

Well Week Seven!

I have to admit it has been a rough couple of weeks, but I'm working at it. Welcome my new addition "Cherry Blossom." She made her public debut at the 4th Annual St. Charles Riverfront Spring Art Walk this weekend and she got a lot of GREAT feedback. I love working on new projects and this piece has been a labor of love for me. Well that's all for now. 

Take care and have a Great Week !

Week Six of my "Weekly Creative Challenge"

It's "Art within Art" Time!

Week Six already. Whoa! I have had a lot of fun working on some of my new additions to my "Art within Art" line. I like to get the chance to work on drawings for my "art centered" jewelry designs. Well this week's addition is "Isabella's Aqua Fantasy". This is a combination of patina hand textured copper and a whole lot of wired wrapped aqua flower. This pieces definitely makes me "Think Spring". Well have a great week and enjoy!

Take care!

Week Five of my "Weekly Creative Challenge"

Week Five 
The Creative Bug stays "Alive"

This week was a join venture. I work at a bead shop here in St. Louis named "Lady Bug Beads". I work with some very creative people there and one of those creative people is a lady named Jo. Well, this time around I brought in my metal components into work to pick out some beads to enhance my design. Where I work there are just so many beads to choose from. This time there where so many great choices that I asked for some opinions on which beads to choose. Well Jo had spotted some new beads that just came in and she wanted to see these great marble Czech beads be utilized. After seeing those wonderful colors marbled within each bead,  I couldn't help but to use them with my fretwork design. My new addition is "Encircled Blossom"
So Jo... this ones for you!!
Enjoy and take care!
