Just blow off the dust.....

There has been a flourish of activity in my studio as of late.....Many of my new pieces have taken on a new, old life. While a lot of artists are still coating their pieces with shiny resin, I have taken a step back to a simple brush on, textured finish for my pieces. They are more antiqued, roughed up, stained and all but stepped on with my boots. I want them to look like they were pulled out of the dust in a corner of some forgotten saloon. I will still of course use resin for some of my pieces, just don't be surprised if I leave in the bubbles and stir in some prairie dust.....

Meanwhile... back in the studio


I've been back in the studio lately {finally} doing a little art, jewelry and all around creating. One of the new things I'm working on are some necklaces made to look like old fresco's. I love the surface texture.... these, along with my painted tile and amulet necklaces are going to be showing up on my website and in my Etsy shop. I'll share some more work soon....
