A Little More Show Biz

While I’m catching up on a little television news, I’ll share a couple more “As Seen on TV” moments.  If you stay with me to the end of this post, you'll find the strangest one! In late spring 2015, I was watching a new episode of the TV show Bones (Season 10, episode 21 "The Life …

The Emmys Project

Once again, I'm playing catch up.  It's been a long while since my last post.  Not that there hasn't been quite a bit going on, I've just not taken the time to put some of it into words. My last post was to provide a little sneak peek into an exciting opportunity I had through The Artisan …

100 Little Things

Just one hundred pair of earrings.  Only 100, well 200 pieces.  That's all!  It didn't seem too nutty at the time, and doesn't now that I'm almost finished either.  It was a pretty big commitment for a really cool opportunity that I'll let you know more about pretty soon.  After cutting and shaping the first 150 …

Give it a look and let me know what you think.  There are over 70 pairs of earrings looking for new homes! …

Decisions! Decisions!

So, there's this basket of earrings just waiting for their close up. They are the first in a line-up of earrings, buttons and even some cool tatting shuttles that I will list in my Etsy shop very soon. Well, that is if I ever decide how I'd like to photograph them! I don't know why …

New Moms for Mother’s Day!

Mother's Day 2014 has been a day with my attention focused on some special new moms. A pair of my earrings have been included in gift bags given to a select group of new celebrity moms by The Artisan Group. Each new mom will receive many gifts including items for baby, jewelry, personalized stationary and …

Fun in the “Hart of Dixie”!

I woke up this morning and checked Etsy, Facebook and my e-mail as usual. I was greeted with a fun surprise from The Artisan Group. On last night's episode of CW's "Hart of Dixie", a pair of my porcelain earrings were worn by actress Valerie Mahaffey, who plays Mae! I got pretty darned excited and …

Celebrating Earth Day 2014!

I'm very happy to announce that through The Artisan Group, I have given my beaded porcelain pendants to a select group of ecologically minded celebrities! I must admit to being a bit "star struck" when tagging each package with names such as Meryl Streep, Robert Redford and Leonardo DiCaprio! Where to stop? Okay I'll name …

Wrapping It Up

It's hard to believe that we are already a full month into the new year and I haven't even wrapped up 2013 yet! My last post was in the fall when I had just begun designing my annual Christmas ornament. Here's a peek at some pieces "under construction". I enjoyed making these ornaments every step …

2013 Ornament Design in Progress!

I know that Christmas comes around the same time every year, but it seems that each year, my handcrafted porcelain ornaments hit the shows and shops "hot off the press"! Or more accurately, out of the kiln! I have a design idea that I'm quite happy with right now.  There are several pieces ready to …
