Week Twenty Eight of My Creative Challenge has some of that "Old World Charm"
There are only 2 week left in 2009 and we are coming to the end of a very productive year. This year was full of exploring different styles and techniques. One of the things I discovered is my love of fretwork and the intricate designs of different eras such as "Victorian", "Art Nouveau" , and the "Art and Craft" movement. I love the swirls and nature… Continue

I feel all "Linked" together for Week Twenty Seven of my Weekly Creative Challenge
Learning a new technique can be so enjoyable and it is even more fun when the pieces you create actually come out the way you image them. This week's entries did just that for me. It all started when two of my favorite customers came into the store with these great bracelets on. The designs were so cool and Ms. Margie O. and Ms. Debbie S. assured… Continue

"Tag You're It" is Week Twenty Five of My Creative Challenge
Well I'm back on track and this week has three entries for all of you to take a look at. I love working on this line a lot. It is fun to come up with different images that can fit into this set limited space. I want the fretwork to be detailed but not to overtake the shape of the "tag" itself. I design these pieces in copper, brass and silver and the price range varies. This… Continue

Nature's Answer to Week Twenty Three of My Weekly Creative Challenge !
Working on new pieces is always fun. I wanted to get back to basics and I choose to go back to my love of nature. This piece was fun because of of the little wire wrapped pieces (Woooooooooo). Many of my drawings that I have worked on lately are definitely "Nature Inspired." I think that I'm skipping the winter season and throwing my thoughts towards… Continue

Week Twenty Two makes me feel
Well Week Twenty Two is the beginning of staying on course with the create process that will spark 2010. I have been working on a series of drawing that will launch my creative process for 2010. Sometimes you have to get back to basics and drawing out my pieces is how I began to focus on designing. Around a week ago I saw one of my teachers from Maryville University. Her name is Leslie… Continue

Week Nineteen Smells Like a "Rose"
Well I'm back from Detroit and it's time to get back to designing. I have to admit I had a bit of a bus man holiday because while there, of course, I worked on a couple of pieces. This bracelet was one of my favorite so I thought I would feature it for this Week's Challenge. I really liked the color combination of pink / pale rose and copper. I already have 2 orders for this one. It feels like… Continue
