After All, It’s Kitten Season

This pendant sold fast and I don’t have another on hand. I will look for this frame and cabochon and make another. An overabundance of kittens isn’t really a thing to celebrate, but kittens are cute nonetheless. This small pendant is made with a print of my pencil sketch “Ready for Play”, inside an oval […]

Just one little careful study of sun on the bench and flowers, from anothers’ garden. My own garden bench should be so well landscaped. Use it to hold seed packets, or your own collection of heritage seeds, gloves and small tools, or small books and notes to have handy when planning next year’s garden so […]

Let the Sun Shine With Hand-painted Trinket Dishes!

These little trinket dishes are 3.5″ in diameter and approximately 1/4″ to 1/2″ deep, made from natural white polymer clay. Each dish is formed and painted individually.
