Pendant in February

This little piece started about two years ago and was just sittin around looking sorrowful at me each time I looked at it.  I wish I would have taken a picture of it before I picked it up again but that didn't happen. It turned out pretty nice I think (only took a few years :).

January and February are filled with family and friends birthdays and that means time to get in gear making those hand made cards.  Making cards for the guys is not the easiest for me.  I find it so much easier making cards for us girls.  Anyway, the frogs are jumping and the monkey is hanging for two of the February birthdays.

Our Lady's Rosary

Here's one of my latest projects in red, white and blue as Our Lady requested. This rosary is to be said For The Conversion of the USA and Act of Consecration to the Most Holy Trinity.

Here's a new piece

It's been a while since I posted, I have been so busy doing this and that. It seems like I never have trouble finding something to do which I guess is a good thing. This piece below is a pendant I created using a 14 ct garnet gemstone. I made this piece for a very special friend's birthday. Hope she likes it.

I have been busy too learning how to make a rosary. I wanted to make the eye pins and connector pieces as well so it took a little longer to do but I believe I have the hang of things now. I hope to continue to make more of these and as soon as I get red, white and blue beads I plan on making the Rosary for America.

Having a good time with new tools

Signing a pic of my work -

and here's another one where I created a label for honey that my friend's bees made. This is from a photo of them in action at their home in Annandale...

It's almost Christmas and...

here's the western theme Santa I have been working on. His head and hands have been sculpted out of polymer clay. I designed and made his outfit as well. He is ready for the Christmas roundup with his lasso and rusty bucket. He also has his aged lantern ready for those dark nights out on the range getting all of those packages ready for delivery. Go ahead zoom in and take a closer look.

Evidence of another Santa...

Thought I was done making Santas this year but not so. My daughter spotted these cowboy boots I bought and said I should make a cowboy Santa. So in my 'spare time' I started the latest work of art and here's the shirt I have designed and in the process of making. He will even be sporting an embroidery on the back.
