I’ve been having a lot of fun recently making these wire-wrapped pendants.
I’ve enhanced them with beaded ropes.
I recently selected a few for gifts for the girls and women in my family. When I laid them out on the table so each one could choose her favorite, my 16 year-old grandson swooped in, made his own selection, and wore his pendant the rest of the weekend. So, you see, these designs are unisex.
These earrings are using a new technique with a new material. I hope you like them.
All of this jewelry is for sale at Samara Organics at the Natural Center.
When I make mistakes in fused glass pieces, I break them up and re-fire them into “puddles”.
Lately, I’ve been wire-wrapping them as earrings and pendants.
My friend, Connie – she is great with beads and beading – helped me enhance these pendants with beaded ropes for necklaces.

I’ve just put some new pieces into Samara Organics.
Lots of jewelry too.

What a great Que Lindo Feria de Arte. More than 57 artists brought their creativity, dynamic energy, and cooperative spirit to the Natural Center in Samara last Friday. Some truly beautiful work was displayed and sold. Many new friends and connections were made. Thanks to the more than 500 shoppers and to those supporters who took home a hand-made one of a kind piece of art. You helped secure the future of art in Sámara. Through the raffle and registration fees, we raised more than c138,000 ($275.00) for art education in Sámara. We will divide it equally between CREAR, who will paint a mural inside the community salon, and Sámara Pacific School, who will make a community notice board surrounded by mosaic of shells, seeds, and stones.
