The blue swirl is made of a medium turquoise glass and rounded out. I then wrapped a light transparent turquoise around it and melted it in. It has a blue icy color and a bit of motion.

The main bead was made with soft greens and dark turquoise. I rolled it in frit and then encased it in clear glass. The two small disc beads are of the same green and dangle above. The entire piece is on dark brown leather cord with antiqued copper findings. Fun, motion and beautiful....

Fall continues to be gorgeous and full of amazing colors. These simple disc beads on multi-colored leather dangles touch a couple of the colors. Each day brings new colors and new ideas to try to match in glass. I will be at Portville High School on November 9-10th for a craft and antique show. Fall colors will show up there...as well as gifts galore...
Have a wonderful weekend!

Summer Bliss! I am not complaining by any means but it has been a hot week at the torch! Summer has been amazing so far- so much so that I have been a terrible blogger. But things are getting more organized and I am at SAM in the morning. This city keeps dishing out amazing events and weekends! So, hope to see you at SAM from 10-5!

I woke up to this beauty! I put in a full kiln yesterday and finally got my hands on them this morning. Allentown is on the brain and I am creating..creating...creating as best I can!
What an amazing weekend of celebration, family and gratitude. I also took a field trip to Buffalo Reuse. Treasure hunting! I found some old shutters and table legs I am going to convert into new displays. It was great to just look around and dig. It is a fun and funky place!

I have to credit my brother for this pics....he is loads more talented than me and many, many mediums and seems to catch a moment in time in photos, humor, and full picture better than I ever can.

Spring has sprung! Wow! Does it change everything! Here are some pics of frog eggs just laid in the pond. There were thousands and the frogs were still noisy in the cat tails and the birds were hanging out at the shores. Everything out there just gets down to business:) It's beyond belief how everything can be frozen and then all of a sudden spring to life. We have had a stretch of " oh my goodness does it get any more beautiful" weather!
That means kickin' it in to high gear with summer fair prep.
I will be at Allen Town West this year!! Whoa whoa whoa! What a great time to get motivated! I love Buffalo and my city and can't wait to be at ALLENTOWN WEST! See you there!
Preps for big fairs on the way. Cream glass with colorful swirls and antiqued copper findings.

joys of spring are here. The forecast looks bright and I am making a wide variety of new projects. I have an order of brightly colored leathers coming in and new findings on the way. The date I am preparing for is the opening of the SAM market at the Wharf. I hope the wind is calm and the sun out! The earrings are from this past weekend and I hope to duplicate them in a variety of colors as this weekend nears. Let the preparations begin!

Love this Blue! This piece is simple. It is a a disc bead tucked between bead caps and looped on a dark brown leather cord. It feels like a special necklace with luck. I hope to make it in may colors.
I just got back from the Rockies. It had nothing to do with lamp work but more with life and inspiration. What a great trip! Pics to come. Now to think strong, happy- SPRING thoughts!

Gorgeous Sunday! What a week of weather and I have to say...I can not recall driving in worse conditions. It's gorgeous but every time I arrived at my destination I was beyond relieved. Today the sun is shining, projects are in the works and I guess there is some kind of big football game tonight. The Bills are not playing but I will pay it some mind and at least do some snacking or something.
