mw cuffs

These cuffs are available for purchase

Make a continuous line of beads that will look like stacked bangles on your wrist. I use memory wire, a variety of beads and sari silk in my designs.

Have you made these cuffs? They are soooo fun!

collage necklace

My collages seem to be getting smaller and smaller. Other than they are so fun to make, I just can not get rid of even the smallest pieces of paper. I keep a box for all the bits of paper that practically need tweezers to handle them. Sometimes my intention is to go though the box and toss a few, but then I find myself arranging and gluing and a collage happens. This one is 1.5X1.5 in size. I decided to treat it as a cabochon and edged it with bead embroidery. Went perfect with a bunch of faux resin beads that I had made....sort of an art hanging, not on a wall but around the neck.

symbolic language

Title: Symbolic Language
Size: 4x8x2.5
Wood Block Collage

Thank you Joy for the kick in the pants...I haven't posted in a long time, life got in the way.
This collage is done on a painted wood block. Helps recycle, saves on frame cost, and will either stand on a mantle or attach a hanger and hang on a wall.
More new images here and here.

stamp and doodle

I call this "Stamp and Doodle" art. I try to keep a small sheet of watercolor paper close by when I am painting. As I stamp onto my work, I also stamp onto the watercolor paper at random to clean the stamp. When I run out of room, I doodle over the stamped images and watercolor over that. Sometimes it's art...sometimes it's aren't.

birds everywhere

Just returned from a very successful retreat, Artiscape in Ohio. Greatly coordinated, good classes and good weather. Lots of friendly people art jewelry flew (no pun intended) right off my booth. Now I have a production line going getting ready for Art Unraveled in August.
Thanks to all the wonderful students who attended my classes and purchased my designs.

kayla and skyler necklace

Two classes SOLD OUT at Artiscape. The Empty Nest Bracelet class and the Collage With Moxie class. I am posting this necklace to inspire the registered students who prefer to make a necklace verses the bracelet. Make it any length you prefer. My necklace is long, but photographed better short. Bring "stuff" that you love, I will help you with the design.
Only a few days left...see you soon.

starlit cuff

Copyright Cory Celaya 2010

This is what I have been working on lately.... I love cuffs but every time I make one I end up selling it. Well, I'm keeping this one as a sample for a workshop. Almost all the components are recycled. The colors are yummy...very earthy against the icy sparkle of the stones.
