The small works of my hands recently….

Reader I & Reader II (Found objects: sea stones and figures)

In this society of cell phones and computers, its refreshing to see
someone read an 'old-fashioned' newspaper or a real book! :)

"In the Balance"  (Found objects: shells, sea glass and figure)

I created another miniature gallery for the new local coffee/pastry shop.
This was a 4" x 9" vintage drawer - made over with a paint job of 
Buttercream and Wyeth's Field Green and adorned with new treasures 
gifted by various artists.

A friend asked me to make her beautiful Labradorite stone wearable -
so I linked some beads and attached to an adjustable satellite chain.

The end of last year, I discovered the beautiful Tangerine Quartz.
I enjoy my own necklace so much that I wanted to create some for other creative types. :)
I think it's the gentleness, and the light and glow which reminds me
 of the first or last glimmer of the sun that makes this quartz a joy to wear.

Wired up

This is my progress.  Two are ready.

Tangerine Quartz #1 ($38)
Tangerine Quartz #2 ($25)

The prairie has been soaking up rain and listening to thunder.
Winter is cold but relaxed.

San Antonio/Texas

San Jose
San Juan
The Alamo 

We spent some time in San Antonio - besides the downtown Riverwalk fun 
and enjoying good food, we checked out the Missions in the area -
the Alamo being the most famous of course.

It was 86 degrees and felt like a nice oasis in the midst of this winter season,
though Oklahoma is having fair & sunny weather also.

Sending warmth and light to you.

"Sisters & Cousins"

My sister, Michelle, asked if I could make some earrings out of her 100 year old cameo bracelet.  Here's what I came up with.  I call them "Sisters & Cousins" because I managed to squeeze a pair out for our cousin Inge also!

Miryam and Yeshua

Miryam & Yeshua, Acrylic on Board

We don't know the exact day of Yeshua's  birth.
 It could have been in the spring or fall… 
The mid-eastern babe was dark skinned 
with twinkly brown eyes and soft black hair. 
Miryam's heart was filled with holy joy.
