Summer Inspired Jewelry.....

I'm back from vacation and I had a really wonderful and relaxing 2 weeks off, taking day trips and doing fun things with Chris. I still have to organize my photos from that time as well as take pictures of the orchids I purchased when we went to my favorite orchid nursery last week so I'll save that post for another day.

In the mean time, here are some new and I think, summery style pendants that I just completed. I've gotten into painting double sided fued glass pendants. The design on the backside, creating a lovely backdrop for the garden growing up the front.

Daisies and Poppies seem to be a popular design motif these days.

Abstract sand dollar and fused glass pendants continue to be a lot of fun for me. I love painting in miniature so this is something I truly enjoy.

These pieces can be found in my ETSY shop at:
Some of the pendants have already sold but if you see something you like, I'm always happy to create something just for you, feel free to ask.

Hi Ruth,

Welcome back from your vacation - since I have also been on vacation I am visiting Blog Land today to get caught up with everyone.

Oh - la -la - your new pendants are fabulous. I love the retro designs. I do not know how you manage to paint so small. They are all lovely.
Have a wonderful week.
