A couple of years ago I took a jewelry -making workshop with Carolyn Mallin of Fanciful Expressions. Since then I have, occasionally, made a few pieces of jewelry here and there--but because I haven't been able to spend much time painting lately, I started making jewelry again--it's something I can do while I'm fixing dinner, or watching TV and it satisfies my need for "instant gratification." I'm not giving up on painting--but with the current family situation, I really don't have the time to dedicate to the studio. I haven't given much thought to actually selling the jewelry--right now it's just something I'm doing to keep my mind off more serious matters and it comes in handy when I need a gift! So here are a few pics of some of the jewelry I've made--they aren't the best photos, lighting is all wrong, etc. I really like turquoise--it's one of my favorite stones, after amethyst, of course--purple is, after all, my "signature" color.
