A Jumble of Really Good Stuff!

Playing with my new camera while trying to get my work done for the Talmadge Art Show next weekend doesn't leave much time for Blogging. So, here is a box of good things I am looking to add into my necklace designs for the show.
Spirals seem to be a strong draw for me. I have new MAKU Raku pieces along with a stone with a carved spiral full of tiny Herkimer Diamonds. Watch gears and parts, Glass Garden Bottle cap beads and some pieces of rusted things I'v collected on my neighborhood walks. Ohhh, the potential!
It is a very rainy day in San Diego. Good weather for creating beautiful things in the studio.

Back to work!


  1. Ooo, Jeannette, those just look yummy! Have fun - I'd love to see some pics of the designs when you're finished.

  2. Ha ha, you and I bought almost the same MAKU piece (with the bits of fine silver in the grooves). But that Herkimer spiral is like nothing I've seen before -- awesome find! :D

  3. Wow, I'm drooling. Those spirals are just amazing & combined with rusty stuff would just be fantastic. Great things


  4. What is that beautiful shield-shaped piece? The one with the green circle in a circle?

  5. What a great collection of lovlies.....still getting lots of compliments on my beautiful Jeannette Cook bracelet. Be sure and post some pics of new work! Miss your laugh and great stories.
