I return

Oh...I have been a bad girl. I haven't been here for ever so long. Life has taken me a different direction, for the better. I was told in January that I was going to be laid off, until they realized, that my job as a buyer for a top floral company was necessary, at least until they got through the holidays. So, flying home to Oregon for a vacation in March was a joy. My mother offered me the home that I had been promised 25 years ago, along with her in it, so we listed the house in Illinois. Long story short, I quit the day job, moved 2200 miles, drove back home, and went fulltime selling my work.

It's a joy being back here in Oregon. I take care of my mother and husband, I'm active in the community again, I have time to create...and create I do. Here's a piece of my latest works.

London Blue Finished

Okay, here's the final piece as promised. London Blue Topaz and Sterling Silver.

I feel my work is moving again. More and more of my stones are one of a kinds, prong set, and woven over. I've been making so many eye pendants, I do them in my sleep.

It's real nice doing something over the top, something that's pretty, something original.

You can find it on my new web page, which is up and running at http://www.twistedsisterarts.com/

I design in a mess

I had a beautiful morning to create, and while at my bench, was this lovely morning light coming into my window. It fell over my tools and a half completed blue topaz design. The composition of the light, the tools, and color, was just too perfect to waste. Grabbing my camera, I had to share.

I'll be back later with the completed design.

Evil Ring for a Man

Here's some of my evil eye work. I try to keep it out of my blog, as I wish to share my pretty things here. Not necessarily my eye work. However, this one did come out especially pretty, and very strong. My customer, wished to wear this ring everyday, and he needed it extra heavy duty. So, using extra wire, heavier wire, and an extra large glass eye, his ring was created. He is very happy, and going to come back for more.

I can't wait to see what he wants me to create next!!

A Customer Returns

I had one of my favorite customers return, in distress, as she had lost one of her favorite pieces. She asked if I could create a new sterling silver bracelet for her to wear. Something with a heavy duty clasp, to match an earlier design. Same materials. I have a tendancy to keep some of my past stones in stock, for emergencies such as these. Sometimes, to tell the truth, I just like going into the antique typesetters chest just to peek at the different types of stones I use.

Anyway, getting back on the subject, I created this one of a kind piece, and I'm very happy with it. It has real bling power.

New Work

I haven't been around much this summer, I have been creating one of a kind works, and working with my eye series. Here's a piece I didn't put on my Etsy webpage, as it is sold to a dear customer, who will be coming over to pick it up, and commission a new ring. I thought I should publish it, so you can see it, before it disappears from my work bench.

Also know that I am currently changing my webpage, http://www.twistedsisterarts.com/, to webs webpage, http://www.twistedsisterarts.webs.com/, and soon it will have the old address available to direct link.

Many new things are happening, and more will be coming forward this next year. Ehugs all around.

I'm back...

I've been a very bad girl, I've been so busy on commissions and orders that I haven't been here. So, I'm bowing and groveling. So sorry....

So, to catch up on what's been happening. Soldering. Weaving wire. Cubic Zirconia. Pearls. So much creativity, so much growth. New shows to come, new customers, old customers. Fabulous...I hope I can keep up....

Here's some of the latest work, especially fine, since I've regained the ability to solder.
