Evidently my email is not working properly, the emails that I have sent out aren't going through and I am not receiving my emails. Comcast isn't living up to their advertisements about customer service. That is a long story and I won't bore you with the details, needless to say I am working on getting a different provider. Until I get this worked out you can call me at 269-934-8818 or try emailing me through ebay, artfire or etsy. Sorry to everyone that has been trying to reach me. Hope everyone has a great Holiday!

I've Been Busy!

I have 5 new Painted Ladies to share with you. They are, "The Red Hat Lady", "Tear Drops & Dragonflies", "Pearl of the Sea III", "Christmas Spells" and "Southern Christmas". I should have them listed on my website later today. This month is going way too fast. We have the office Christmas Party, that we are hosting on Saturday, and I'm not ready. Off to the store to do more shopping.

A Mermaid and a Witch

My latest hand painted creations "Bella and the Sea Urchin" and "Casting Shadows". Both of these pendants offer new colors of Dichroic glass that I love. Bella has a gorgeous deep pink leaning towards the purple colors and Casting has the gorgeous autumn colors. Both of these are fantastic. You can find them both at the online store, A Touch Of Glass Jewelry.

Prancer Time

Here is another one of the Steampunk Creations. This one is called "Prancer Time". This one started out with a beautiful black pendant circle with a beautiful lace design. I then added a vintage Watch Face and then added this beautiful Crystal Rhinestone Reindeer. I added a vintage watch gear and placed one of my painted fused glass faces in that. I added another watch gear and the vintage watch hands that point to her. Hence her name "Prancer Time".

Two New Designs

If you know Swarovski Crystals then you know these look much better than I can photograph. These pendants catch the light like no other. I don't take credit for that, it's the Swarovski Crystals. But I do love the daintiness of these necklaces. I'm still working on some other fused projects. Hopefully those will be ready soon.

Partridge in a Pear Tree Steampunk

I just finished this steampunk necklace. I love the old world look of it and that you can wear this with several different colors. The partridge is one of the small hand painted fused glass cabs that I make. Still working on some other projects that are taking longer than I thought. Hopefully I will have those ready to show soon.

Egyptian Queen Steampunk

Here is another one of my mixed media steampunk pendants. You can wear this one as a pendant or as a brooch. I love the colors on this one, beautiful iridescent orange and brown accented with a lot of rhinestones and vintage watch parts. Love the vintage watch spring that accents her forhead.

A Mermaid!

I haven't painted a mermaid in ages, so I decided to paint one. I call this one "Pearl of the Sea", she is holding a pearl in the palm of her hand. Then I painted "Christmas Holly" and "Halo Angel". I have some new ones that I hopefully will have completed by tomorrow, they will be "Windows to my Garden" series. Here are the pics of my new painted ladies.

Happy November 1st

I can't believe we are already into November! Today is absolutely gorgeous, sunny, light breeze and around 50 degrees, not bad for November. The Halloween Drawing was last night and the winner is Hollie Duckworth from Georgia. Hollie won a Dichroic Pendant Slider of her choice. Now I will have to turn my attention to Christmas. I've already started Christmas shopping and not a minute too soon. My online store has gotten off to a great start. I have some new creations stirring in my head and I should have some of those by the end of the week, hopefully. Have a great evening!

3 New Painted Ladies

I can't believe that I finally finished 3 painted ladies. The older I get the less time I seem to have. In more ways than one, LOL. The first one I call her "The Beaded Lady, beading the world one neck at a time", "Autumn Gothic" and "Tell Me No Lies". Don't forget to register for the drawing. Just go to me website and leave a comment at the guest book.

Don't Screw with me Steampunk

Here is another one of my steampunk creations. She is called Don't Screw With Me New York. Her wings are engraved with the words "New York Standard Watch Company. Hence the name. For more details you can go to

New creation by Barbara Ellis and Vallerie of She Who Beads

I love receiving pictures of how my customers have beaded my cabochons. I am truly honored that they have chosen some of my cabochons to bead around. Believe me, I have tried to bead around different items and it requires patience and vision which I think I am lacking one of these attributes. Here is what Barbara Ellis and Valerie of She Who Beads have created. The little Halloween girl is beaded by Barbara Ellis and Sad Eyes is beaded by Valerie. You can find beading patterns by Barbara Ellis at

The First Christmas Witch of the Season

I know it's too early, but with all the snow on the news, I just had to paint the first Christmas Witch of the Season. She is called "Holly" and then I made "Dresdan, The Winter Angel", "Violet Eyes" and "Gothic Burgundy". I should have them on Etsy and Artfire later today.

Sorry to cut this short but I have to clean house. Have a great weekend.

What is Steampunk?

I thought since I have entered the world of creating steampunk jewelry I should explain or atleast direct you to someone that can explain Steampunk. Honestly I couldn't even start to explain it and make sense of it. So instead I am giving you a place to go to read about it from someone that has a better understanding than I do. Here is the link
So with that said here are two more of my creations that are a combination of steampunk and mixed media. The first one is "Witching Hour II" and "Wings of Time", hope you like them.

I'm into creepy crawling things

Well not all of them are creepy! Here are my newest steampunk mixed media pieces. The first one I love, mostly because these are my favorite colors. The browns and rust and gold are perfect for this time of year. I call this one "Creeping Time Steampunk". The back is just as pretty as the front.

The next one is "How many frogs do have to kiss....". This was a fun one to do. Started out with a very nice large silver filigree circle, then I attached this fantastic vintage watch face. Added the painted fused glass face with tiny watch screws for the hair and then added this beautiful frog. The frog shines with crystal rhinestones and the blue cat eye stone is gorgeous.

Can you believe this weather!

We are definitely in fall weather, cold, windy, rainy.... Hard to stay in a good mood with this type of weather. Which probably explains my 3 new pendants. They are all on the dark side (color that is). I will have some really cool steampunk creations by tomorrow, but for now here are the 3 newbies. "Ghouls Night Out", "Twylight" and "Witch Haven, Fright Night".

Friday, October 2, 2009


It's been one of those weeks, started out with plenty of time and then poof, not enough. Thought I would have more to show you but only a few.

The first one is "I See One...", she is a fortuneteller and I have no idea what she sees, maybe you know. Then I had several special orders so I will show you those. I am now working on some mixed media pieces and steampunk pieces. I should have those completed soon.

My New Website

I finally worked on my web site, Go check it out! I have a coupon there for you to use and will be adding things periodically. I have had the domain name for about 6 months. I am ashamed to say that it has taken me this long to get it going. Check it often for little surprises and let me know what you think of it.

I should have some new pendants by the first of next week. My newest little witch sold within minutes of adding it to Etsy. I guess witches are in! Here's the link to my web site.

The Witching Hour Steampunk

Here is my newest steampunk creation. I call it "The Witching Hour". This was my first attempt at using polymer clay and I love it. I made her hat and hair out of the clay. Much easier to use than I thought. Love the vintage watch partial plate that I used for her body. The writing on it has a whimsical look to it. I'm just finishing up some other ones that should be ready by tomorrow. Have a great evening.

More Halloween Pendants

I'm on a roll! I love painting Halloween theme pendants. This is my favorite theme, there are so many visions and so little time. I have "Trick or Treat Cinderella", "Hallow Night", "I See You" and "Oh Bats".
