Sometimes life throws you a curveball and I think this was one. Instead of working with all my paints and papers I have been drawn to some jewelry inspired by a blog site called: I know I am copying her work but it is not for me to sell. Just to see if I could make something as beautiful as she does. I just love her bracelets made from spoons etc. and the broken china just sings to me. I am looking further towards taking a Course in Jewelry Making as I have beads from 40 years of collecting and I seriously need to be using some of them. I do so find a passion in these things more so than the paper arts.
And so, this is my very first attempt and it's not perfect like hers, but I think with a little practice I can learn. My plans are not to leave this as is, but to enhance it by dangling some beads off the bottom. When completed I'll post another picture. Right now I just want to go shopping at some junk stores for some more broken china. Now I'm feeling some passion!


  1. Peggy! Love your postcard! Like the way you saw the skirt, in the beginning, and went with it! Also; your necklace is lovely and I did check out the website; I can see what draws you to the jewelry. There's no doubt in my mind that you can do your version of this kind of jewelry - beautiful! xxoo

  2. Hi Peggy,
    This piece is so delicate and I love the purple flower - beautiful work! :)
