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
A Touch Of Glass Jewelry.

I have The Witching Hour III. She isn't posted yet, you get to see her first here.

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 http://theclockworkcentury.com/?p=302.
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".

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.
