Right Now

I can't get enough of paper. Lately I've been doing many papercrafts, following the designs of my sister, who does some amazing things in paper arts. So far: bookmarks, envelopes, tags, and cards. I like to embelish them with cute details like metal eyelets, gromets, and ties. take a look...

More Handmade goodness in SA

I stopped by a new boutique in San Antonio today called Luminaria. If you are in the area (Alamo Heights across from UIW), please go check it out, or visit their website. Michelle the owner is super nice, and makes all of her great smelling candles from scratch!

What's Old is New - Results!

As I mentioned before, I am currently upcycling several pieces of discarded vintage jewelry. Here is an idea of what I've been working on.

These are some veggie bobby pins that I thought were super cute, and in excellent condition!

A friend said I should title this one "Chinese new year" so I did. The pendant is a locket style (though it doesn't open) enameled disk that features a dragon. The gold tone chain came from another multi-layered necklace, and matched perfectly with the dragon pendant. And because the chain is so long, no clasp was necessary!

And this is my favorite so far. It was originally a broach. I cut off all of the pin connectors in the back, filed, and sanded them so that they would be smooth. Then I soldered on two loops to each end, and added a 21 inch sterling silver chain.

All of these items will be available in my Etsy store very soon!
