Here are pics of a few pieces I finished just before the Holidays. I always enjoy experimenting with needle felting! You can find them on our online shop.

Here are three new jewellery pieces which are now in our online store. This might be the last jewellery for a while as I’m doing a bit of painting again and thinking about making hats and paper flowers. GJ is working on a new sculpture, which is always exciting for me – I love to watch the progress. You can see his new website here.

I’ve been working on a few new pieces lately. This one took forever, and I’m very happy with it. The glass and brass pieces are probably from a bracelet. I found them in a random bag of bits and pieces, mostly broken, I bought at the flea market a few years ago. The rest is new – freshwater pearls, amethyst, and smokey quartz with a brass clasp.
