Latest in the Studio

In the middle of cleaning up my work space and organizing stuff,
which seems to be an ongoing process cause as soon as I do it,
the next pile mysteriously appears again...
I managed to make some new pieces.

The Lady of Shallot.

These came together rather quickly for a nice change.
I love to wrap up these mysterious little bundles and on the
cloth I write little messages...and then tie them up with wire,
wax them and burn them...I can’t wait to get to the burning part...
It’s like my own little secret ritual...sealing its fate,
sending it out into the Universe...whateva.

Sedona Series

Then these...which sold as soon as I listed them by sweet Pam.
 These are made with the beads that I have
just started making out of Polymer clay...I love doing this...
the textures you can come up with not to mention the exciting 
colors to paint them with...especially if you have an artist for a husband
who has a ton of supplies I can borrow...too bad he doesn’t have beads.

The Myth.

These came out of the fact that I HAD to buy these coyote teeth
that I found on Etsy.   I wanted Wolf teeth for obvious reasons but they are really coyote teeth had to do.  I remember in high school
all my brothers friends used to call him “coyote”...even on the phone
“is coyote home?”   so I thought of him while making this
Talisman piece...a real departure for me.  I tend to make up
little stories as I'm working...I invent characters, give them names,
and then make them little talismans or charms to take with them
on their journeys 
or to keep as tokens or remembrances.

on a less cheerier note...

Anywhozits....time to start thinking about doing taxes...oh man how
we enjoy this time of year around our house! With two self-employed
people living under one roof... stay far, far away.
