Studio visit

It start to get hot, summer is just around the corner. The advantage of the rising temperatures is I usually prefer to stay more inside.   And that usually means more studio time, less outside distractions. And by distractions I mean my backyard and my plants. They are a constant inspiration and my oasis is for sure the best place to just be and relax. You are looking at my view when I sit on my sewing machine or paint fabrics. 

In my studio I am currently busy experimenting with new paint and mediums hoping to achieve some interesting effects. So far I am not where I would like to be ....

Jewelry piece of the month

One of my favorite jewelry pieces: a fossilized shark tooth combined with fresh water pearls, recycled glass beads, seeds and lava junks. It seems whenever the weather gets warmer, even for Miami standards, I seem to use more fresh water pearls in my jewelry. I really enjoy the different shapes and the feel these pearls have. Usually I combine them with my beach glass, but since I was lucky to find some shark teeth I decided to use all of my treachures together.
