This is my latest necklace called "love" Actually, I created this piece some time ago but had put it away and forgotten about it. I finally cleaned my studio and out it appeared. I have also begun to use my new mannequin form for my photos. I'm hoping my new images will make a difference in my etsy shop.

I start teaching summer school on Monday and will teach for two weeks. Summer school marks the count down for the beginning of school. A few more weeks and back to work.

One of my co-workers has accepted a job at another school and I was notified that her position was not going to be filled. I am going to be left with a male co-worker that is not always very pleasant to work with. My theme for ths year: changes. I have to accept change and do my best to work with these changes. I will be praying extra hard these next few weeks.

I hope you are enjoying your summer.

New Work

This is my latest piece. I started this piece a year ago and then put it aside. My son asked me for it and so now I picked it up once again. I don't know why I lost interest in it in the first place. Well, it is still in the beginning stages and I have a long way to go. In case you are wondering this is an image from a Tigua Eagle Dancer.
My goal for this summer was to complete unfinished work, photograph my jewelry and begin three portraits. One for each of my kids. I don't know if I'll get to those portraits, but I sure am going to try.

I just purchased a mannequin form in hopes that my jewelry will show better in photographs. I shopped for one on the inter net for some time and I think I made a wise purchase. I won't sing victory until it gets here. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
