Another shibuichi bezel filled with a tiny sculpture. I used lots of sparkly pigments and foils in this one and they will really pop when its filled with resin.




This glass necklace was made by Stephanie Maddalena, a charming glass artist we were set up near at the Interweave Bead Fest in Philadelphia. Azalea made fast friends with her daughters and they played all day long behind the tables. The show was a success and loads of fun to shop, many of my favorite vendors and artists were there, like Joanne Zekowski and Gail Crosman Moore. We had a lot of fun in Philly, but its nice to be home. Andrew rode home with us and will be making stuff like crazy until he has to go back to NY in a couple of weeks. We have been planning projects and working on dolls out of polymer. Sheila arrived yesterday from LA and it has been so nice to have a full house. Today we went downtown to get lunch at The Green Sage, then picked up some chocolates at The Chocolate Fetish. So its been busy around here, but relaxed. I have some big news...but I have to wait before I can share it. Stay tuned to find out what it is!

I love the pendant! I get compliments on my dragon girl all the time. I wish we were there with you, making stuff and being creative together again. Tell Sheila and Andrew hi from us.

Is the big news that thing we're supposed to do at the same time? Ha hah--If so, maybe I can work on Brandon...

Hi Cynthia,
I love your new pieces, especially the clasp "Bird Flying through Clouds". I think I will wait till you come out with the silver version :o). Is there any way to get two polymer clay baby turtles? They are precious.
Thanks, Traci

Hi Traci!
We have the silver version of the bird in the clouds clasp available- if its not on the site, just email us. I only made one polymer turtle, but if I make more I'll post them.
