Brass pendant

I finished the pendant I started a few weeks ago in my Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing class at UArts! I'm really happy with how it turned out. Next up- a silver ring.

Ok, so if having one store on Etsy is not enough. I have opened another one for felted art. If anyone can give me feedback, I would appreciate it.

More Images

I am ready for Spring, but I got some great photos from the last snow storm. I am working on self publishing a book with my Through the Viewfinder Images. I am looking forward to warmer weather and taking my cameras on the road!

So, I have found a new addiction, Some of you may already know about this! You can use your beautiful work to trade for other people's beautiful work.

I have also starting making gnome houses because with all this snow I needed to make something that made me smile!

The Victoria- my newest little creations

I recently rebuilt my entire sewing studio (I'll upload some photos soon).  My old room was so unproductive and not easy to get around. that I have my new special place I have been WAY more productive and excited about getting to work. These little clutches have been my latest focus.  They all have two pockets/card slots inside and most are either detailed with vintage lace or have been made with vintage fabrics.  You can see more in my shop.

Pysche Cello Fairy Wings

Finally found time with all this snow to try out a new technique! Here is the first of my new cellophane wings, named Psyche after the mythological love of Eros (which i though was fitting since Valentines day is just around the corner).
I hope everyone knows that the Plymouth Whitemarsh show got postponed until this Saturday... I KNOW everyone wants to get out of their house after this crazy snowpocolypse... These are some things you can expect hanging around my table (besides my boyfriend) :)

Perhaps a leather flower and leather feather headband or hairclip would tickle your fancy?

If not, try a jersey knit "Ruffler" scarf! I've starting making them in lighter weight fabric for the spring and summer months (Apparently they are supposed to be coming soon)

There are also these cool embroidered pieces I made on my machine on duppioni silk, then cut out to make appliques... Lots of layer for instant fun hair facinators!!

I'm taking a class at University of the Arts in Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing! I already make a lot of jewelry, but it mostly involves simple gluing, beading, and wiring techniques. I wanted to learn some proper metalsmithing skills too, and this class seems like it's going to be perfect. Here's a pendant I'm working on- it's going to be two layers of brass soldered together, with one of the layers oxidized. I'm still not very good at sawing metal so my lines are kind of wavery, but that's ok since I'm going for a really organic look anyway! (You can see a computer printout towards the top of the photo of my design for the pendant).

Felted Buttons

Combine some nuno felted silk and some button blanks and this is what you come up with! Especially, if you are taking a break from shoveling. And getting ready for more shoveling!

Black Feather Angel Wings - Metatron

No, not Megatron, Metatron. You know, the angel, voice of God, etc?
I am working on medium/large feathery versions of my baby angels, and here is the first!
These wings are handcrafted from turkey and goose feathers and are light as a, well, um, feather...
