One of my many things on my list is making more & more jewelry. Lazy Daze is in 3 weeks & I want to have my booth filled with lots of vintage sparkle. here are some pictures of things I'm working on... aren't these watches with roses yummy!!?
Vintage watch faces and pieces of old pink earrings... oh, I love these! I love this combination too... and i love the pink & white roses ~
Below is a necklace I am making ~ the pink bits & pieces are just laying waiting to be married with the pearls~
I love this bottle bracelet below, mainly because I love roses in any shape & size & color
~ I may just make this into a necklace ~ i want to wear it ~
I made some new soldered pieces after a sweet new friend asked me to make some pendants make from the scrapbook papers she helps design. Thanks Terri for reccommending me. I had so much fun making these. I love the blue one on the right the most, since it's funkier (and different than ones I've made before) ~ but I like the simplicity of the pink one with pearls ~

It ended up being a gorgeous day & I did well being in the shade, ALL day! I felt bad for the people across from me - in the sun all day.
I only had one peice - walk away - which was so annoying!! Ted & Darlene stopped by my booth & took pictures, so I have proof that the ring below WAS actually there... but near the end, I kept thinking I would find it, but never did. I was actually wearing it earlier... ugh!!

This piece below (also inspired by Alice) has tiny beads, buttons & baubles collaged over an antique gold filigree piece... with lots of vintage glass pearls ~ I love old yellowed pearls!
So much character.
This is my all time favorite bracelet... and I sold it... some day I'll make another. All sterling silver & freshwater pearls... then a satin ribbon ties it all off!
The pieces made below were for my friend and customer, Tangee ~

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have pollute d the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free. Amen!'
Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, 'The Rest of the Story,' and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired. With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called 'One Nation under God
