Title:  A Duck in the Garden
 
This is a demo piece on intuitive collage.  Papers were collaged then de-collaged.  More papers were added intuitively until the layers started to take shape.  In time a shape appeared in the form of a funky duck, yellow tale feathers and all.  Normally I get rid of "cute", but decided he could stay and add to the design.   The painting is 12 by 12 and is available for purchase.

the zipper cuff

 
Found a bunch of zippers at my favorite thrift store and had no idea what I would do with them at the time.  But...the price was way right so I bought them.   Guess they were meant to be cuffs.  This ochre color zipper looks great with navy, and,  happens to go with a resin bead that I made way back when.   Hoping to have some for Art Unraveled, if you are there, stop by the booth and say hi.

meow necklace


 
 
Love working with bits of fabric, fibers, buttons, etc.  This necklace was part of my new line of jewelry called Sweet Revenge.  Info on how Sweet Revenge came about is on my other web site.  I found this scrap of fabric with the cute cats and decided that it had to be a necklace.  I used layers of fabric in different textures, buttons, fabric beads, and a wonderful black tribal bead.  This item has been sold.

Don't know which I enjoy more, the chase, the gathering, or the actual making of artisan jewelry.  This is just a peek of some remakes, ready for the market.   A class will be coming up soon on Transformational Jewelry, or remakes as I like to call them.  I will be posting information on the class very soon, or, post a comment tellingl me where you can be reached and I will email you information.
