"Wonder Woman" Cuffs

These cuffs are made by stitching beads on Stiffy Stuff then sewing them onto a brass cuff along with an ultrasuede backing. I consider it the best of both worlds... sewing and beading. The brown one is 2 inches wide and the brighter one is 1 inch wide.

Some Days Call for a Tiara

I made this piece a few years back... Everyonce in a while I dig it out and wear it. Some people look at me like I've lost my mind... Others just smile.... I think they wish they were less inhibited about what other's think. It makes me feel happy!

Beginning of the Rings

This is the beginning of my rings. I just love wrapping rings. I guess it stems from my childhood... I never had rings and always wanted them. When I was in high school, I must have thought they were too expensive and was too timid to ask: "How much does it cost?" So, I now make inexpensive wrapped rings that make the wearer happy.... at least they make me happy! Yes, I have made rings for all my fingers and toes and then some.... Want to have some adventure in your life? Buy a "fun", "OMG" or "what was I thinkin' " ring.... I can probably fit the bill.... THIS ring is for the conservative minded. I start with non tarnish silver Artistic Wire and 5 mm gold filled filigree beads, 5 mm champagne czech glass beads and jet Swarovski crystals. Then I wrap, twist and curl and VOILE: A ring is produced. Conservative, but fun and sparkly. Watch for more to come....!
