Echo Creative Club January Reveal!

I am delighted to be a member of the Echo Creative Club!
Here is my design using the beautiful “Gin Blossom” polymer clay pendant that I received.

“Purple Dreams”

I incorporated purple dyed jade beads, glass rounds, seed beads, and brass tube beads.
The necklace length is approximately 20″.

I love these Gin Blossom pendants – they are light weight, have a lovely aged appearance, and come in a wonderful selection of colors!

You can find the Gin Blossoms and other great products at Jewelry by Jeannie

Be sure to check out the other artists participating this month:

Cindy Cima Edwards
Jeannie K Dukic
After the reveal, you can check out the  Flicker group to see everyone’s designs too!



Favorite Christmas Gifts and Other Happenings

My daughter April gave me two of her wonderful creations for Christmas!

I absolutely love this altered box – it is super creative!

It now hangs in my craft room for inspiration.

My mother collected crosses and had an entire wall devoted to them. My daughter has decided I need to start one now that my mother has passed.

This cross is beautiful! It is decorated with old buttons that belonged to my mother. The “grout” used is our favorite medium – “Ranger Stickles“.

I hung it on the wall under the scrapbook layout I created in memory of my mother.  I will add more to this wall in the future.

Other happenings:

I learned yesterday that I will be a part of the 5th Bead Soup Blog Party! I am so excited!

Also, I have been asked to be in the Echo Creative Club! I received some of Jeannie Dukic’s wonderful polymer art beads or a pendants each month, create a design, and post on my blog on the 25th each month. So come back on January 25th and see my first creation along with links to the other members participating!
