It's Sunday Nite

And all is fine here at the casa. I have had an exciting week, met some new people, made some new friends, ate some of the best pizza at Ron and Sam's house it was fantastic. I met Frank's sons wonderful wives and parents of each had birthday parties and the best news of all is Daisy has a sister. Yes our little Daisy has a sister named Bella who is part Sheppard and red heeler. They are affectionately called "The Girls". They are getting along wonderful and Daisy is having so much fun playing with Bella so now I will have two studio assistants.
Have you ever stopped and thought about coincidences in your life, how things happen to you and you wonder why? About how all things seem to work out, if you do wonder about this lets discuss it please I am quite curious about how your life is affected by them and do you believe there is no such thing as coincidences in life. If you don't want to post here please email me and let me know what you think.
On another note I am going to do some pieces with cold connection this week been along time since I have done any but a ring design is stuck in my head so here it goes. Stay tuned for results this week and please tell me how you feel about coincidences.

Tuesday is almost gone in the fading daylight

The was a very hard Tuesday lots of things to do some fun some not. Looking for some shark teeth to make a necklace for my grandson I have placed it somewhere , can't seem to remember where I put it so I wouldn't loose it. Oh well that is life so tomorrow I will go to Five Points here is Jax and hopefully find some to make his necklace or he is going to be upset with his grannie. I have been working once again on the fusing techniques, I want to make a braclet with alot of different fused components on it, I would like to implement brass, copper, silver and gold. I was thinking of Halloween coming and what am I going to put on the etsy site? Will have to think on that one.

Ah They Are Done

Well I finally finished the pretty earrings, they are long and sexy and have alot of movement to them. I like it when the earrings I wear brush up against my face almost like a caress. Long dangle earrings always look so good on people don't you think? Don't they make you feel sexy when you wear them? I cut and cabbed the cabochons for these earrings. I have always wanted to make a pair of fraternal earrings you know the kind that are sorta alike but not really, some don't even have the same stones maybe just the design is similar but the stones are totally different. Anyway I finally did it and it feels really good, I am trying to go to the studio at least some everyday, although sometimes I make pretty jewelry I still prefer the bohemian look. I like that the style is more free and not so uptight which is alot like me, I will be the first to tell you I march to my own drummer and stay true to myself to do what I need to do, to create my own style. I think if you force yourself to create something that your heart isn't in to its bad for you and your spirit. I love creating treasures and interesting things, brought back some lovely coral from Hawaii that is actually very smooth of course with the ocean that rough how could it not be smooth. After our jaunt to the beach with Daisy the other day I am inspired once again to do something with the shells and stuff I find on the beach and of course I have some wonderful beach glass that Amy Rowe brought me from the islands and my daughter Crystal brought me from Puerto Rico that I am going to have to so something with all this stuff I think. Look and tell me what you think of the new earrings. Still trying to figure out what to give away for a prize on the contest I want to do for the blog site. Any suggestions????

Thank Goodness It's Friday

I have only been doing a little bit of creating this week, I am having a little time adjusting to Jacksonville because Really only have one friend here, think I need to get out and make some friends. But I really like just being in my studio doing my thing all day long I am going to get started on my sis bday present this year it will be very sentimental for both of us, can't tell you to much I want it to be a surprise and I don't know if she reads my blog or not but it has a fantastic story and will be worth some laughs to you. Got some more herb seeds for my little garden to plant today the seeds I planted for flowers last week are already up. I admit I am a gardener at heart.Going to make some pesto with bowtied pasta this weekend got to go get some pine nuts.

It' A Freaky Friday MovingDay Again

Gosh am I ever going to quit moving this errr stuff here from the farm? I ask myself that every time I come home with a load. I have made peace with the understanding that when you are an artist you have lots of supplies(crap ok), you need it to create right, I mean how can you do anything if you don't have some kind supplies on hand. Now I know rusty metal beer tops are not a treasure to some but to me they are and someday I will do something with the few I have. Just lots of stuff for one art medium is ok but when you create with fibers like cloth, thread, and all that stuff in addition to making metal jewelry and doing lapidary work like cutting stones you need stuff for that to, in addition to tools lots of tools for each well to say the least I have lots of stuff and I refuse to give up to much of it, its like parting with treasure although not viewed as treasure by all so my new motto is to love me is to love my treasure and put up with it. Now luckily the love gods sent me someone who is patient and understanding of this situation and he is very supportive whew thank goodness!

I have always teased the idea in my head of fraternal earrings so now I am creating a pair, using a freeform pair of chrysocola stones cabbed of course by yours truly. I want them to be long and have lots of swing to them I may add some bling or not, will of course some patina too. Stay tune for them on hopefully today if I can get it done in time.

The Sunday Morning Nancy Times

As usual it's 7 in the morning and I am already up and running. I am so excited today is the day I put the studios back together, hurra! I have greatly missed my jewelry fix with all this moving, I think maybe three more trips to the farm and I will be done. I am starting with the jewelry studio first this morning, the new room is painted a blue which by the way I didn't choose but I think its okay and it does have two windows to open for a view of the backyard so that is nice for working in. Oh by the way my little herb garden did the move just fine and is coming along great although I did loose some stuff while I was in Hawaii my little garden helper forgot to water so no nastriums for my salads that mean replacing them and also some cilantro, but the peppers came thru great as well as the chives , basil, oregano and the dill. Today it's fresh pesto with kabobs on the grill wow doesnt that sound great!

Fun Times Revue

Do you also check out people everywhere, is it the artist in us looking for something in them? I love to people watch it is a fun activity I want to attend some drawing classes to draw faces only faces so far interest me. I am checking out some places to do that here in Jax. When I was on the Artwalk I really got to check out alot of people very interesting people, but you know it's funny anytime I see a man in a skirt of any type be it a kilt or just a plain skirt if fasinates me. In the picture you see a man who is obviously very comfortable wearing a skirt and has learned how to bend down in one a great concept huh? I think its definetly cool for a man to wear a skirt do you?
