Painted Angel Wings with Semi Precious Stones

It was enjoyable working with two medias, Gilder’s Paste and acrylic paint.  I’m pleased with the way these turned out.  It was fun to mix the colors!IMG_0018  IMG_0040

I colored the angel wings so they would go with the color of the semi-precious stone.   A little sparkle was painted on the angel wings, also. I made four more, all with different colors and semi-precious stones. I will be showing them at the Montrose Arts and Crafts Festival this weekend, May 31st and June 1st.  I look forward to this once-a-year festival every year!  This year is the first year I will have my own booth.

Hi!  You can’t believe how busy I have been!  I am getting ready for an Art’s and Craft’s Show in Montrose, CA on May 31st and June 1st.  I have a little over a week left to get ready!  I will have a 10′ X 10′ booth there.  I have been going to this yearly show every year as a customer.  Now, I am going as a participant who is selling my items.  I feel good about being in the show, because it is a “juried” show, which means there are judges deciding who can be in the show.  There will be about 300 artisans and a few food booths.  There are also some good places to eat in the restaurants.  It’s a really fun Arts and Crafts Show to go to. If you are in the area, I’d love to have you stop by my Embellished Charms booth. I keep coming up with new ideas, and I am working on many new designs.  Here are a couple of pictures of my Tree of Life earrings and necklaces.  These trees are hand painted on both sides.  The necklaces are 24″ long, including the hand painted tree. Any comments would be welcome.



Doggie Earrings

I love little doggies!  In fact, I have one of my own.  He is a Silky Terrier, named Toby.  I’m putting a picture of him on this page.  My brother and I took Toby to the beach dog park in Del Mar, CA.  Toby loved it!  He is standing there in the wet sand.  He loved all the smells of the ocean and beach!  He enjoyed meeting the other dogs, also.

Having Toby in my life, inspired me to make some doggie earrings.  Here are three of them. What fun!  I have been asked by Rhodie at Doggie Depot, in Arcadia, CA, to put some of my earrings in her store.  I’m getting some ready, now, to put in the store.  By the way, Rhodie is an excellent dog clipper!  I’m so happy with the cut that she gave Toby!  I’ll be posting some other doggie earrings on my next post.
