Sorry the pendants took longer than I thought, but here they are. The first one is "Hazel" "Holding the future in her hands". Then there is "Sunflower fields forever".

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. My plans got changed, but that is good. We had a great weekend anyway. Loved the weather! We have been having the most gorgeous weather. I'm appreciating every second of it.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I know I need a break and I am sure everyone else is happy to have one. Only plans we have so far is to go into Chicago for the day. We haven't done that in some time. We thought we would go to Navy Pier and Brookfield Zoo. I love the Zoo.

Anyway here are the new pendants. I call the witch "Siesta Mieta" because she looks like she needs a long rest and then there is the mermaid "Sea Mazen". She watches out for the bad people that contaminate the waters.


I am always getting emails on wanting to know how to paint on glass, what kind of paint to use, glass, etc. My question is if I make a tutorial would anybody be interested. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. I was even considering making up kits. Let me know what you think.

I should have a couple of new ones by this evening to upload. I finally finished all my special orders and now have time to make some for the other selling venues. Check back this evening for those.

Here's another beautiful creation by Barbara Ellis. Barbara beaded and created the pattern for this cuff bracelet. Using one of my painted pendants, she has turned this into a multifaceted piece of artwork. I LOVE THIS CUFF!

I can't believe how the week flew by. I thought that I would have more pendants completed by now. I am so so slow lately. I did get 3 new ones completed along with 3 special orders. Still not enough. I still have 3 special orders to do and I need to get more ready for my web sites. Here are the 3 , "Angel of Love", "Sienna and the Dragonfly" and "Daisy in the daisies".

Handmade Artist Forum

I joined a new artist forum that is great. Lots of new ideas and beautiful items. Check it out for yourself.

Here are a couple of my new pendants. I am in the spring mood, so the next few pendants will be with flowers. They are called "Blue Skies & Spring Flowers" & "Daisy". I love the daisys on Daisy the petals are a soft gray. Hope everyone is having a great day and taking advantage of the good weather. Yesterday was pretty but cold. Today is going to be around 60 and sunny.

Here is a new pattern from Barbara that incorporated one of my pendants called "VooDoo Princess". I love these beaded necklaces and appreciate all the hardwork that goes into each piece that she creates. Here is a link to the pattern.

I have also started making lampwork beads. Yes, I must say, I got the bug. I just had to start making them. I've been making them for about 6 months now and will start selling them soon. I made this one into a necklace for me and other ones for my family. Here is a peak at one of my first. I call this one "Tropical Paradise".
