Beaded Flowers

Flowers, a plenty. Here are two flower brooches and a flower necklace that are fun to wear just about anytime. Note the flower button used as a closure.


Do you Zentangle? Say what? A zentangle is more than a doodle. It is a very detailed geometric repetition of designs typically done in pencil. The designs are usually done in 3x3"; however, these are done as Artists Trading Cards or 2-1/2 x 3".

Altered Container

After painting this container with the blue acrylic and some stamped verbage, it screamed sea life to me. The top is embellished with a mermaid, sequins, seashells, cheesecloth and a string of pearls. The sides of the container are also decorated with shells, cheesecloth and sequins. The container measures 8" in diameter.

Another published creation

This is the Zulu Square Stitch and appears in the July/Aug issue of Step by Step Beads.

Textured Paper

I continue to play with the textured paper. I love the summer colors and tactile feeling this one has.
