For a little while now I've wanted to be a part of a yahoo group dedicated to art jewelry. I'm enjoying putting things together, and the "hunt" in thrift stores for special pieces. I've spent more than I'd care to admit on silver, pearls, gemstones & such. In the last few months I've gotten a few issues of Belle Armoire & have fallen in love with some of the jewelry in there. The jewelry issues are on their way. Anyway- looked around & didn't find what I was looking for. Mixed media Jewelry using some usual & some unusual elements. So- time to start one. I'm in the process of setting up Adornmentz now & will be adding people and sending out invites in the next week. I thought maybe some small scale charm swaps. And a show & tell Tuesday. And a monthly charm lottery for starters.

Found objects and repurposed vintage pieces, metal and paint, resin and vintage papers, clay and gemstones, rusty things and swarovski crystal? If you make beautiful adornments with any of these- then Adornmentz
is a place to check out.

I'd love to have ya & see what you're up to! I hope that this group can grow to b provide as much fun as I'm haing in BookArtz right now. LOL. Currently working on a house shaped & themed skinny book.

Earrings & Update

I seriously love these earrings. And I'm torn between listing them on Etsy and keeping them for myself. And someone else has already expressed an interest in them. LOL. They are antiqued copper with green glass. They have a fabulous swing when I hold them up. And I think I finally took a decent picture. I photographed about 4 different things yesterday before storms rolled in and I lost my good light. So I hope to post more pictures soon.
Website update: I've done some redesigning but haven't uploaded the new stuff yet because (of course) I broke some things while I was doing it. Seems weekends are the only time I can really get some work done so it'll probably be next weekend before anyone but me sees the changes.
Swap update: The house chunky has been announced on BookArtz so I'm starting my pages for it & been wrapping beads here & there for Patti's bead swap. It's all good. ;-)

The last ET Deco

The last Eiffel Tower deco from the RR. Mailed this off today to it's owner, hope she'll be happy with it.

Art time has been scarce lately, but this afternoon I got to work on a couple of things so hoping I'll have more to post soon. Yup- I'm not nearly as prolific as some of my art buddies!

Goodbye Robin..........

I received an email a few hours ago that Robin Whittemore passed away today. Makes me very sad for her family.

Heaven's got another angel today.
