Fresh for Stella

A good friend says her new favorite color is light bright green. Her comment helped pull me out of my creative void! These will be going to High Hand Gallery in Loomis.                

Gallery fun

While I worked at both Auburn Old Town Gallery and High Hand Gallery this weekend, I did demos. Here are a few of the results. Both galleries have some new earrings from me now!


But it was nice and cool while working yesterday, July 4, at Auburn Old Town Gallery. I added my latest pieces to my display there.

Today’s polymer earrings

Chartreuse glass from Murano, Italy on gold-filled wires. Moonstone and soapstone on sterling wires.

New studio space is working for me…

…which is great, because I am able to spread all my treasures out and find new combinations! Just completed is this pendant and earring set. I prefer sets which aren’t too identical, but which have some common beads in them. … Read More

One a day, that’s all I ask.

But I am rather fond of yesterday’s earrings. The lower bead is Murano glass. Tiny disk is turquoise stone, topped by my polymer bead and a copper cap. Suspended from hypoallergenic niobium wires–and I can’t convince myself to sell this … Read More

I never get tired of making earrings

A rare day for me; I don’t need to go ANYwhere! So I get to stay in my studio and create.

New Mexico Treasures

Time for a journey–to New Mexico. Even though my passion is making polymer beads, I also love natural turquoise stones and frequently incorporate them into my pieces. I replenished my turquoise collection at a fantastic mineral/bead shop in Albuquerque, Mama’s … Read More

LOVE 2013

The seed was planted in February 2012 and now the finished pieces have been installed in both Auburn Old Town Gallery (The Art of the Heart exhibit) and High Hand Gallery. My take on hearts…

New Earrings!

I just dropped my latest new earring creations off at High Hand Gallery yesterday–included are some clip on earrings for those who have chosen not to pierce!

A Holiday 2012 Celebration

I’ve been in the sweet candy mode–lots of new holiday earrings and necklaces have already appeared in both Auburn Old Town Gallery and High Hand Gallery in Loomis. I’ve got a few more beads to assemble–here they are!

Happy Days

This is a small collection. It will never be reproduced exactly because it was a spontaneous idea created from a demonstration I did last summer during Eisley Nursery’s “Art in the Garden” show. These pieces incorporate the mokume gane (mocha … Read More

She needs a name

I had so much fun making her but now she needs a name. Any suggestions? She is made of polymer clay with jointed shoulders and hips. Her jewelry features turquoise, glass and abalone beads.
