Mixing native with modern

This necklace makes my heart sing. It does exactly what I intended. It mixes a tubular peyote stitch using a matte verdis gris seed bead along with large rough chunk Amazonite pieces. It can be worn as both a choker or a longer piece. I did three variations of earrings as well. What do you think a keeper or not?

Tis the season!

The course officially opened 7A.M. this morning. Apparently the only ones to get the News Flash were the golfers. I suppose early money/spring break visitors are all more important than us the lowly residents who sit along the course with NO....that's NO net protection in place.....cause we didn't know today was TEE off Saturday. Oh yeah and the huge flocks of nesting birds that yesterday thought they had found Nirvana.

Not rain nor sleet or hail will interrupt our mail

I kneel before thee oh god of postal service, full of remorse and with red face gleefully clutching my missing (1 month) book. Thank you for fulfilling my childlike belief that "THE MAIL WILL GO THROUGH".If the book was ordinary, a first edition Somerset Maughn or priceless original illustrated Lost N Found Journal, money may have eased my pain but this was a Beverly Gilbert secret color wheel technique bible (Eye For Color} and I became an unreasonable, sobbing, manic, bitch. Beverly graciously offered to replace the missing gem but by that time I was on a mission. Thank you Lady Gilbert for your concern and generosity and thank YOU Canada Post for your uniquely quirky Customer Service system.

Canada Post Calling, How may we help you....ha...ha...ha

Call me optimistic or just call me "crazy Canuk but I use Canada Post for mail delivery that is, I did. The last 2 weeks have indeed been a lesson in perseverance that called upon the time honored Canadian values of trust and faith in that hallowed tower of the untouchable known as our postal service.The parcel was apparently placed in the locked box. I allegedly had the key to said box placed in my mail slot but no parcel was found. The hope the problem would be solved "post haste" is now into call 15 of day 14 and I realizing "the service department" had stopped listening have moved on to the highest echelon of management. I am willing to make the resolution of my dilemma my life's work. I will keep you posted......ha...ha...posted...I so kill me.

I have truly fallen into the old trap of starting 4 different things at once and in the same work space. OMG...what a mess. I like moving from one project to a totally different project often within the same day and sometimes hour. This is the pickle I'm in today. My coffee cup is stuck in a puddle of gel medium as is this dang TV control. The positive is, a photo of the Vatican transferred onto the polymer plate in those lovely blues and taupes and works!

Where to start?

The beginning of any project is born out
of color. This is especially true today as I work again with Polymer Clay. The piece is a cuff bracelet with these colors along with similar colored beads.There will be some type of lettering involved and maybe musical notes. Just letting it lead me.
