Collaborative Work

Vanessa Parker is a very talented Jewelry Artist. We have been working on some collaborative items for an upcoming show. Vanessa is the Artist of the Month at St. Luke's United Methodist Church on Westheimer and the show starts Sunday so drop by if you are in the area. There are three cases of Vanessa's jewelry that will be located in the Rotunda Art Gallery during June. This is an example of a bracelet that she made using my beads. I love what she has done! I also made some cabs for her as shown in the pendant. Look here to see more of our collaborative work:

Summer is Here!

We went from Spring straight to Summer! It was 95 one day this week and today's predicted high is 93. I have been doing lots of bead crochet when I am not constructing jewelry. Here are a few photos of beads with the coordinating ropes.

Happy Mother's Day!

I am back to making beads again after a whirlwind session of jewelry making. It is hard to capture the depth of this bead but it has many layers. I have not made raised florals in a while and they take some preparation because of all the canes that have to be made in advance.
I hope all the Moms out there have a great day!

Market Street Jewelry

Today I am still working on jewelry, but I am running out of time. I always do this to myself before a show but I seem to work better under pressure. The weather is supposed to cooperate so let's hope Saturday is a beautiful day. The show is from 10:00 to 7:00 in the West end of Market Street. Stop by and say HI!
