Skills and Techniques
Love ceramics which I taught for many years. Recycling has been a big thing in my life long before it became stylish! So many of my designs are Altered Art, using found items &/or vintage settings and vintage buttons and so on. I love the new, at least to me, terms \'destash\' and \'upcycled\'. THAT IS WHERE I AM AT!! I like to incorporate healling gemstones and totem items in my creations.

Well, folks, it is time for me to tell it like it really is and to beg for your patience.
Here is what is happening in our lives- a hole has been found in hubby's heart and they are currently running the tests for ALS.
Also my computer and ISP have both developed an attitude, working very erratically and my new digital camera hates me.
And I have been unable to comfortable or quickly walk for quite some time now.
So you see why I needed your patience.
I WILL get all the orders out but not necessarily in a timely manner.
I know I should probably just close up the sites but I know things will get better.
So I am asking for your patience until they do.
Please be kind and take all these things into consideration when you do feed back, OKAY.
Thanking you in advance
And now about me
Many many moons ago I started out making inexpensive jewellery, at first aimed at little girls to fill out my table at the Farmer's Market and Craft Sales where I took my ceramics...... You know... just to have some affordable pieces to cover costs. The first 'adult' jewellery had ceramic feature pieces: then because the lustre of pearls enhanced the lustre finishes on the ceramics, I added faux pearls. So I had extra pearls to which I added shells and Mother of Pearl beads and pieces. The good old snow-ball effect. Meanwhile I had developed an interest in gemstones and their meanings and ancient attributes. I had mostly put aside jewellery-making to concentrate on the flower-growing and herb- gathering. But age and injury caught up and I am no longer able to gambol on the hills and through the woods. Sietse, perhaps to ease flak he was getting because of my frustration, encouraged me to get back into it. After all I do not have to be able to walk to make jewellery. Now as well as the gemstones I have developed a love for Swarovski crystals and lampwork glass beads... And Sietse decided to try his hand at carving horn, so many of my pieces are really a joint effort as he cuts and polishes the antler pieces and polishes teeth, fang and claw our specialty Totem Jewellery. So.... I present....
