All of us who reside in Bloglandia realize for the most part we will only know each other through the magic of internet. And you know I'm really okay with that. For me it's enough to know that there are others that are, shall we say as sweetly eccentric as I am. :) Well if you think about it haven't we spent a good part of our lives thinking that there must be a few other human type animals like our self that live in this amazing world of art. Then somewhere along the way we each fell into our own rabbit holes to discover this place called Bloglandia where if only for a little while we get to hangout with other's who know that the color "skybluepink truly exists. :)
Actually I think there are 3 pictures in existence of us all having lunch. Deryn thought to pull her camera out and a women there at the palapa offered to take a group picture. Sooooooo when Deryn gets settle back down at home she'll send me a picture. :)
One of the things Deryn brought down was an awesome treasure box of LeAnn-Summers Studio clay beads!!! Yeah!!!! LeAnn has so graciously donated these beads for me to use in the jewelry I'm making for CONREHABIT to sell at the First Friday Art Walk!! Oh my gosh I can't tell you how excited Martha was when she saw them ;) There are lovely round ones and glazed ones and my favorite little birdie beads!!!
Oh how I love those little birds, It's going to be hard to do the right thing and use them in creations to sell during the Art Walk Sale. :) But I will do my part after all I know where their home nest and mama is ;) Here's a little peek at the start of a piece using a blue bird she sent.
I used a couple of her round button shaped beads in this jade and Rhyolite necklace.
I used some light caramel colored carved jade beads with the rhyolite.Added a jade bat for good luck and made some hammered copper links
I'm finishing up on a couple of other pieces I'll show you in a day or two. Until then kids remember now is a perfect time to make a bit of art no matter where in the world you are. p;)
A yellowish jade dragon for protection a Chinese coin for good fortune and finally LeAnn's blue beads for the calming life sustaining elements of water and air. This piece is positively oozing good karma!!! You couldn't help but have a great day when you wear it!!
