We're off to NYC! This is the first time we'll be staying over night for a sight-seeing mini vacation. (Although considering the prices, it doesn't seem like a mini vacation.) I've only been for quick trips in to see a taping of the Martha Stewart show (with Daniele who is Martha without the money). What awaits us besides a Broadway show? Hmmm... Rockefeller Center and observation deck, Toys-R-Us, FAO Schwartz, South Street Seaport, Statue of Liberty, Little Italy (gotta get a cannoli!!). Who knows what we'll end up seeing but one thing's for sure, we'll have a great time!!

Etching Away...

I took an etching class lets see... maybe two or three years ago at the local communiy college. I'd played around a little with it after that class but recently found some more interesting findings to work with. Here are a few samples that I will be lising on etsy soon.

Ooh-la-la! C'est francais! Je ne parle pas le francais. Peut-etre un peu mais tres mal!

(I've decided to take out the chain between the two blue glass beads. I think it will look much better...)

PMC Results

Last week I had posted pictures of some PMC work I had done before it was fired in the kiln. Well, here are some of the results!

I had found this really cute chick button that I made a mold out of and had a great idea to make a pendant for those ultra-confident women out there - or for those people who want to bust on someone they know! I think it's funny... I added a handmade sterling silver tag with "Hot" on it and a little ruby for color.

Here's another PMC pendant I made. The heart shapes were made using a pencil eraser that I had carved a heart shape into. I then drew in the stems and leaves and voila!
I found another cute button that had all these hearts on it and had to make a mold of that too. Great for someone special.
