big bulbous bead choker

I made this using recycled amber (plastic!) beads from an old necklace and combined them with some of my handmade fimo beads. The result is a unique combo and a real attention grabber. It's a bit heavy... but worth wearing for the fun comments it provokes!

4 canvas painting

This is an acrylic painting I did for fun... It's 4 separate canvases hung together to form one large square... but can be hung in different configurations for a variety of effects.

lime green necklace

I love to wrap this necklace at least 3 times around. It's made with lots of glass, wood and semi-precious beads... a real sparkly focal point to any outfit!

long strand purple necklace

This is one long strand of beads with some dangly bead clusters at each end. You can wear it as one long strand or double or triple it around the neck to make a multi-strand necklace... it is so versatile, you can even wear it a s a belt!

chocolate choker

I made this necklace from Fimo (polymer clay) and some glass beads... and I think it looks good enough to eat. A perfect valentine's day gift... chocolate and jewellery all in one!

blue mug with spirals

I started doing pottery about 3 years ago and this is one of my very first mugs. (Actually the first mug I made barely held 4 ozs... I forgot that clay shrinks in the kiln!). I love working the clay and I seem to be getting better and better. This mug was thrown on the wheel and then I added the spirals. It's a little heavy... but I'm working on making them thinner!

long shiny red necklace

This is one long strand that can be wrapped once or twice around the neck. The beads are a combination of glass, wood, plastic, clay, fimo and a hand painted wooden circle that I added for punch. I love the monochromatic look and the dazzle of shiny beads.

elephant moon stained glass

This original design, stained glass piece was done for a special location in my old home. Unfortunately it no longer has a place of honour... no window in my present home can accomodate it properly. It measures 3 feet by 1 foot and hangs from above. I just love elephants!

red and pink fimo earrings

These chunky earrings for pierced ears, were made with fimo and small glass beads. The spirals dangle and sway and for those who like to stand out in a crowd... they're just perfect!

green tone necklace with copperwire coils

This was so much fun to make... I love turquoise and greens together. It's a choker style necklace with a whole bunch of different textured bead elements and hand coiled copper wire. It looks fabulous on... and makes a real statement!
