Last Day of Nice Weather!

Today was the last day of nice weather here in Colorado--for a few days that is--and I spent most of it in the studio. I have some wild ideas spinning around in my head and I must create before things get lost in the proverbial fog. I do try to sketch ideas out when I can't be in the studio, but sometimes pieces just call to me.

So, today I worked on a lovely piece with antique brass, copper, gold, and gunmetal chains. Then I added some hand-painted silk to give it some warmth. Oh, I must admit it is turning out to be spectacular! I will try to take some photos, but there are so many beads calling me I'm not sure when I can stop long enough to snap the shots!!

I did make a few sample earrings for one of my brides for her bridesmaids and I believe she has made all her selections, so that will keep me busy for awhile as well.

The Momma Goddess has been passionate about art and making beautiful gifts for her friends and family for many years. I have dabbled in many mediums of art for years: oil painting, stained glass, acrylics, water color, and finally jewelry design. I LOVE LOVE LOVE making jewelry!! I have always loved to buy and wear jewelry and I like unique items. So, with this in mind, I try to create items that aren't readily available. I have been having a wonderful time with this new venture.

Here's a few items to know about me:

1. I have two beautiful daughters, Shilo and Tara, and they are indeed my muses. I always think of them when designing and wonder if they would wear it or give it as a gift.

2. I am located on Etsy, Art Fire, have my own website

3. I specialize in Weddings and have been a featured artist on

Treasure after Treasure after Treasure

I have been so busy in my little studio creating new treasures in preparation for the upcoming weekend.

First of all, I will be at the Whimmydiddle in Scott City, Kansas for the day! I am truly excited to meet some new people and perhaps see a few of the ones I met in Garden City. They are truly a spectacular group of people and I hope I can thrill them with a few new pieces.

Second, don't forget the Business Women's Expo located right here in the comfort of your own home! Yes, check out the blogs of all the creative women who have prepared a night of shopping and excitement from your own little nest. You won't even have to brave the weather, if it is bad in your location!

It has been rather cool in Colorado these past few days. We even had a little snow in Loveland this afternoon.

See you this weekend--either in person, or on the web!! Mention this blog and receive FREE SHIPPING!

Wow! That's Amazing!

I cannot begin to tell you about the last two days--we spent them in Denver at the International Gem and Bead Show! OMGosh! Sparkly objects everywhere--I had trouble staying focused!!!!!! We found some beautiful items to make into treasures for you. I will be in the studio non-stop until it is time to go to the Whimmydiddle! Those Kansas groupies will be the first to get to see the new treasures.

I will keep you posted!

Halloween is Right Around the Corner!

I love Halloween. It has always been one of my favorite holidays. We would always decorate the house so we could have a party or at least make Halloween night a festive occasion. Tara didn't like candy so she always dressed up just to answer the door. Of course, so did her mother! I love to dress up. We always made homemade treats or tried to find fun items to make sure the goblins would return year after year.

So, this year, the girls are gone to find their own lives in Florida and our tradition must continue! So look what I found for our little dogs! These are adorable; and what well dressed dog doesn't wear the appropriate apparel for the holiday? Check out this site (

The girls will be going to the groomer and will don their new attire; and of course, I'll get a cute picture for you.

In the meantime, I better start decorating the house and thinking about making those popcorn balls!
