Nevada Uncorked!

Great news! I will have a booth selling my jewelry designs at "Nevada Uncorked - An Event of Art & Wine" on Sat. October 6 from 1:00 - 7:00 p.m. A $10 admission fee includes a wine tasting glass and hors d'oeuvres. The event will feature the talents of local artists and the tastes of native Iowa wines. Live music and food will complete the "stage" - downtown Nevada.
This will be my first outdoor event. We picked up an EZ Up canopy tent last night. Hopefully we will only need it for shade!

I've posted a shot of one of my favorite necklaces. The larger green beads are jade. The photo doesn't capture their true beauty. I was VERY excited when I found these beads at my favorite supplier - these beads HAD to come home with me. I wasn't really sure what I would do with them until one day when I was visiting Reiman Gardens. While enjoying the flowers, these beads came to mind and I knew just what I would do. Not all my designs come together this way. It's usually more trial and error until I'm pleased with the combination.

Welcome to my blog!

I've joined the throng who are blogging, so what can you expect to find here?
I'll keep you informed about what I'm creating and how you can obtain my creations. I'll share some of the inspiration behind my work. I'll probably brag on a few of my artistic friends, too.

I recently openned a store at Check it out at
There are just a few items in the store so far. I won't add a lot more until October, because I'm getting ready for a show. Details will follow in a future post.

You can find more examples of my work on my web site which has a gallery of some of my work. If you see anything there you are interested in, please contact me for more details. My husband updates the site in his very little free time. I'm not HTML savvy like he is.

I'm so glad you've stopped by & I'd love to hear from you.
