Two New Original Christmas Cards---I'M DONE!

I always love to make new original Christmas cards each year.  I tend to make some mid year and then again in December, usually after our Open Doors show.  This year I took the time to do two different kinds using handmade painted papers and backgrounds.  These are more sophisticated than usual. 


Putting the Finishing Touches On...

Just putting the finishing touches on my new pendants...

and a little bit of soldered jewelry

and a little bit of wax...

Hoping you'll come visit my table...

at the show...see you there!!

Z'oodle Color Book Journals

Last year Volume 1 was a success for my Z'oodle Color Book Journals. They went as gifts to families, friends or just stayed home with their new owners. This year, I'm introducing Volume 2, new drawings, new pages and more fun for journaling. For this show I will have Volume 1 available, if you missed it last year, along with new calendars and bookmarks. Come on by my booth and see what fun I've had this past year with my pens and papers.

Getting ready for the show-

This is such a fun time for all the artists and I know our guests will feel the excitment this weekend at the show. Here are some items I will be bringing. 
 Wire and fabric flowers
 Story Tellers
Hair flowers

Felted soap and hair flowers
Some fun items
Red--- see more on my blog and hope to see you in a few days.

New Fiber Danglies--I hope you like them!

I am very excited about my Danglies this year.  I did three new ones.  There are two birds and beaded balls made from recycled fibers.  Both birds are rather primitive but unique.  One bird was done using an old sweater I probably bought when I was 27.  It was handwoven in South America.  I was saving it for something special and this seemed fitting.  Very colorful and ethnic, but pretty.  The other two danglies are made from a Coogie Australian mercerized cotton sweater.  They are very special and made the danglies quite interesting and unique.  I will use these again sometime!

I also made felted pins and made them into a danglie.  You can take the tassel off and voila!  there is a little pin you can wear.  The threadspool and cork danglies are always fun.
See you at the show!   

Chaos or Productivity?

Three days before the show and chaos reigns on my jewelry desk.  But the jewelry tree is filling with fresh fruit:

 Family members are liking the simple pieces....

but I find I quite like the unusual combinations.

Of course, classics done in amethyst or carnelian are always beautiful.

And this year I'm adding a few holiday pieces.

Ho-Ho-Hoping to see you all at the show!!

The Portland Art Collective holiday show is verrrry close! The fun begins this Friday, December 2nd. Are you ready to find that perfect gift for someone special, or for yourself? I've created some affordable lovelies for my table. One of these pins crafted from wire would add a nice touch to a scarf, shawl, or hat.

I'll have several pairs of earrings to choose from, as well as pretty things to put around your neck. Look forward to seeing you at our show!

DANGLIES by Jennifer - Open Doors Art Show and Sale!

My newest danglies - hang one over your mirror, or from a doorknob, or even from a tree!  I love the little frame with the Eiffel Tower in it.  The crosses with vintage clock faces and gears are so "industrial chic".  See you at the show next week - December 2nd and 3rd!
