Kathleen, thank you for the compliments. I'm just starting to experiment with some jewelry pieces and I'm pretty excited. I like the way they're turning out. Nature's Embrace is such a great name for a collection. I love their simplicity and elegance. Very well done.

These Colorful Coffee Mugs have been etched with the beautiful Japanese Kanji Symbols for the Four Seasons. When I found these Coffee Mugs they had been previously handpainted with a dragging type painting technique that ensures their originality and adds to their uniqueness. I love the look and feel of these mugs and I'm sure you will too. No matter your beverage choice, these one of a kind mugs will serve you well. All Four Seasons are represented in the set: Summer on the Rose Madder red mug, Fall on the Saffron yellow mug, Winter on the Persian blue mug,... Continue reading

Quick update of what's been going on...new lighthouse vase about to be listed in my etsy shop. I'm working with a different finish on the outside of the wine bottle. After blasting, meaning I solid-frosted the exterior, I masked off and then used a clear shellac finish for an additional effect. It's different and I like the look. Any opinions, feel free to chime in. I've used it on quite a few bottles and it has some interesting design possibilities. A few other current projects going on right now are a butterfly jewelry box and some really cool Japanese Kanji... Continue reading
