pots and peonies

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

I've been working loooooong days in the studio- working to get ready for my first summer show (just 2 weeks away!). I'm bummed I didn't get in to bead and button this year (still on the waiting list), but to be honest, I don't think I would have been ready. Blessing in disguise? Here are some new things I've been working on! I have been slow to list things in my shop, let me know if you'd like anything.

I picked these small terra cotta pots up at a garage sale a couple weeks ago- I love their rustic, dirty patina. They inspired these little charms. I added a puff of dried moss for some color.
small (11mm)- $14
Large (15mm)- $16

Peonies- $15
Leaves- $14

I made a bunch of these teeny tiny pieces to turn into rings.

Some new summery colors!

These came from firing round 1- more to come!


  1. So cute! can't wait to see what else you are making! How long have you been on the waiting list? How do you get off the waiting list????

  2. Just this year I inquired as to how to become an exhibitor. They told me the show is full- and put me on the wait list. In order to get off the list, a past exhibitor would have to be juried out, or choose not to do the show. Bums me out- I'm just a short 2.5 hour drive from milwaukee!

  3. Ah gee - so close! I hope you make it next year!

  4. Dang! They didn't let you into B&B?! What is wrong with them! You deserve to be there, and you will be one day, I just know it! But I understand about being careful what you wish for... I think that it was the right thing so that you could crank it up for the upcoming show! If you do get a chance to come down, please stop by booth 1212 where I will be working with Heather Power of Humblebeads! Would love to meet you.
    Enjoy the day!

  5. Sweet new pieces. I too love that dusty terra cotta color.

  6. These are all so gorgeous!

    I'd love to follow your blog but followers don't show up for me anymore......:(
    Is it a problem only I am having?
