Dress Necklaces

Jul 18, 2014

These dress necklaces accented with wire wrapped vintage beads are the latest designs added to my collection of handmade vintage boho chic jewelry. I think what I love most about my jewelry line is no two pieces will ever be duplicated. They are all one of a kind pieces and I LOVE it. I am always looking for items that are unique to wear and this line is perfect. FYI… If you see a heart, dress, cross or rectangle necklace in one pattern but wish it was in another pattern, please feel free to contact me as I might be able to customize a necklace for you and the cost will stay the same. I don’t charge more for this kind of customization. As you can see my new jewelry line combines my love of vintage with my love of casual...

Cross Necklace

Jul 16, 2014

This simply stated cross is a reminder that we are all slightly flawed yet still beautiful. I love the red, aqua and yellow colors as they scream RETRO and go with any summer attire. The tin has a few slight scratches here and there but I feel it only adds to the beauty of the cross. I wire wrapped a vintage clear iridescent bead that dangles from two jump rings. The cross measures approximately 2.25″ in length and hangs from a 24″ ball chain necklace. It is listed in my Etsy Shop. This matching bracelet measures approximately 7.5″ in length. If needed, I can custom size the bracelet for you. I attached vintage wire wrapped pearl beads to jump rings which dangle all along the bracelet.  This piece can be found in my Etsy Shop too. I...

Leather Cuff with Vintage Tin & One Little Word

Jul 14, 2014

This weekend, I was busy creating one of a kind bracelets. This bracelet is mixed with all sorts of fun stuff. The base of the cuff is leather and is accented with tin that I hand cut from a vintage tin. The tin is attached to the leather with crystal rivets that I LOVE. The rivets are by ImpressArt and I need buckets of these in every color. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them so much. Each end of the leather is covered with a strip of vintage tin and is also attached with crystal rivets. I metal stamped the word True using the letter stamp set Newsprint 3mm lowercase also by ImpressArt. Since this bracelet has a boho chic feel to it I didn’t want the letters stamped straight onto the metal if I had I would have used some stamp...

Assemblage Makes Me Happy

Jul 10, 2014

I love taking discarded items found in thrift stores or flea markets, putting them together and creating something wonderful. It gives me absolute pure joy and is just what I did to create this bracelet. I used opaque white beads from a broken rosary, clear iridescent beads from a broken necklace, metal chain, wire wrapped some clear and pearl beads taken from a broken bracelet and cut a piece of tin from a beat up old vintage tin. When assembled together these discarded items create a beautiful piece. This bracelet is available for purchase at $34.95 plus Flat Rate Shipping of $5.80. This bracelet is created from hand cut pieces of vintage tin and assembled along with two vintage iridescent beads. This bracelet is available for purchase at $24.95 plus Flat Rate Shipping at $5.80.

Leather & Vintage Tin Bracelet

Jul 9, 2014

It makes this momma so proud when one of my daughters sees a jewelry project on my worktable, picks it up and says, “I’d wear this, this is cool.” Lately, I’ve been playing around with vintage tins cutting them into simple shapes to create accents for bracelets and earrings. I love old tins and think up-cycling them into jewelry is fun. The leather lace used on this bracelet is fabulous and is my favorite. It’s 15mm Deerskin lace and is “SUPER SOFT”. You can find it at The color I used to make this bracelet is called cognac. If you want to see more vintage tin jewelry I’ve created please check out my Etsy shop.

ThermoMorph ~ Moldable Plastic

Jul 8, 2014

I was asked to try ThermoMorph and give an honest review on what I thought and how I liked it. ThermoMorph is made from polymorph granules. I know I was like what the what? I just skipped over the it’s made of this and went straight to playing. Well, ThermoMorph is super cool and so easy to use. It does everything it states on the front of the container. Very Easy to Use Reusable No Tools Required Strong When Set Can be Molded, Carved, Painted, Dyed etc. Applications Are Endless You all know how I love vintage baubles so I made some molds out of vintage lockets using a silicone mold putty that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. Once the molds were set I heated the ThermoMorph as stated in the directions. Again, super easy. Heat water...

Rocky Mountain Memories ~ Artist Flood Relief

Jun 20, 2014

Last September Colorado was really hit hard with unexpected flash floods.  Dams broke, roads were washed out, rivers took control, and lives were lost.  It’s just so devastating.  Complete towns were evacuated, lives lost, people unaccounted for, homes & businesses demolished. Rocky Mountain Memories is hosting a silent auction to help Crossroads Ministries. This non-profit organization has provided a total of 725 flood relief assists but their funds are depleting.  Any assistance would be appreciated. Up for auction are many great pieces from various artists. I’ve donated autographed copies of  all three of my books Delight In The Details, Delight In The Seasons and Delight In The Art of Collage, plus several other items.   This shabby chic birdhouse was shared on my blog in July of last year. If you want to read how I created it...

All The Gals ~ Collage

Jun 19, 2014

Here is a small 4″ x 6″ collage I created using one of the gals stamps from Dina Wakley’s new All The Gals stamp set and her new Media paint. First, if you have not tried her paints you are really missing out. These paints spread like butter and are heavy enough to create peaks and brushstrokes in your art. They are AMAZING. To create this little art journal page I first covered the left side of the watercolor paper using pieces of a dress pattern and Multi Medium as my adhesive. Using Jet Black Archival Ink I stamped one of the All The Gals stamps onto the watercolor paper. Using watercolors, I painted the gals stamped image as well as all around the background of the stamped image. Using a stencil and Dina’s Media paints...

All The Gals ~ Stamp Set

Jun 17, 2014

I finally got my hands on Dina Wakley’s “All The Gals” Media Stamp set and goodness I love them just as much as her “Scribbly Birds” stamp set. These gals have such expressive faces and are perfect to watercolor, which by the way is a new love I’ve recently discovered. My plan is to create mini collage pieces from each of these gals using vintage papers, stencils and inks. Once the collages are completed I’ll share some photos. Until then, if you don’t have this stamp set… go get...

Solitude Leather Bracelet

Jun 6, 2014

I made this bracelet the other night and love it so much I thought I would share a quick tutorial so you too can make one. Just a little note… the crystal and pearl beads are from old necklaces I’ve found in thrift shops or flea markets and the gold heart charm and red and gold glass bead are some mom and dad found. You can find similar items I’m sure but if you really want that vintage charm you need to dig around thrift shops and flea markets for items you can take apart. Cut a piece of 15m Suede leather cord that is double the length you wish your bracelet to be. Fold the cord in half, at the bent end about .5″ down from the bent area wrap tightly a piece of...

Sing Your Own Song

Jun 3, 2014

I wasn’t kidding when I said I LOVED Dina Wakley’s Scribbly Birds stamp set. Here is another piece I made over the weekend. Using Jet Black Archival Ink I stamped the bird image onto a 6″ piece of watercolor paper, then filled it in with acrylic paints. I painted the entire background with teal acrylic paint. I used the Kaleidoscope stencil by Ronda Palazzari and some of Wendy Vecchi’s Crackle Texture Paste to add texture to the piece. Once the paste was dry and did it’s magic I inked it with Archival Inks and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Using Multi Medium I attached some vintage sheet music and an image from a book. Next I covered the stenciled areas and the branch image with bits and pieces of a dress pattern. Once the multi  medium dried I...

Altering Melt Art Embellishments

May 30, 2014

I fell in love with this cameo in the center of a vintage tin I found, last week. As soon as I got home I made a mold so I could pour some UTEE into it. I did a random pour, just the cameo and then a little bit around it, wherever the UTEE landed is where I kept it. I wanted the embellishment to look like an old decorative piece that came off a wall taking some of the wall along with it… I hope this makes sense. I also have a vintage photo album with the most amazing embossed image on the front and decided to create a mold of this as well. As you can see, I use several different mold products and with all of them the results are wonderful. I get a beautifully...

Good Junkin Spots

May 28, 2014

Last week, while heading down to mom and dad’s place I stopped at one of my favorite junkin spots near New Waverly. This place is filled with all kinds of stuff and the best part is you never know what you’ll find. Every time I’ve gone I’ve found something awesome. One of the places that is a must go to spot every single time I’m home is the Sour Lake Antique Mall. This place is filled with lots of amazing things and I look with an eagle eye in every single booth. If you’re ever in or around Sour Lake this antique mall is worth the stop to shop. I found some awesome things this past visit. This time my finds were all about vintage jewels. I found so many fabulous pieces that I cannot wait to use in my art...

Rocky Mountain Memories ~ I’ll be There Soon

Apr 14, 2014

I’m getting so excited about my return visit to Rocky Mountain Memories in Estes Park, CO. This is the sweetest most quaint store that sits in the heart of downtown Estes Park along the riverwalk. Rocky Mountain Memories is filled with great products and super fun people. Cheryl Grigsby, the owner is living my dream. Seriously, a scrapbook store in Estes Park, CO, pure heaven. Last year, when I taught there I got to stay in Rick and Cheryl’s amazing cabin. While there all I could think about was how much mom and dad would love staying at “Redemption Cabin“. So this year, I’m bringing Mr. & Mrs. Claus along for the ride. They are getting  a wonderful mini vacation in one of their all time favorite spots while I teach. Mom and Dad...

Leather & Rhinestones

Apr 1, 2014

I just added some new cuff style bracelets to my Etsy shop and I incorporated my love of vintage by adding vintage baubles to them. The combination of leather, hammered metal and the glam of vintage baubles is a favorite of mine. If you see something you love in my shop don’t wait to make your purchase because once the item or items are sold I will not create another piece exactly as the one you loved. I like to keep things unique and one of a kind. Also if you have teeny tiny wrists as did one of my customers, SIZE 5, I will certainly work with you as best I can, on making sure the bracelet you purchase fits. No matter the size I have no problem customizing a bracelet for you. And I...

Handmade Leather Cuffs & Bracelets

Mar 25, 2014

I’ve been busy having loads of fun creating (and selling and shipping, thank you so much) handmade wrap bracelets and leather cuffs. Believe me, I do not need another media to create with since my studio is already about to burst, but really how much space can a few beads take up? HA HA HA that was the laugh heard around the world. Beads are so ADDICTIVE especially when you love sparkly like me, OMGoodness are there some amazing beads on the market. But this fun art form was just screaming to emerge so I had to do it. I’ve been wrapping, hammering, attaching, hole punching and listing like a crazy woman. I’ve even found ways to incorporate my love for vintage finds into some of my bracelets. The wrap bracelet shown in the...
