Busy with Bracelets!

Happy Spring, everyone!

Are you enjoying the weather lately? We have had unseasonably warm temperatures here in southeast Michigan with a couple of gorgeous weeks in the 70s and 80s. It's back to closer-to-normal today with some rain and temps in the 60s. Very pleasant, actually, especially now that it is officially SPRING!

I absolutely love spring. It is my favorite season. All of the new growth of plants and the world waking up after winter (what there was of it this year, anyway!) Obviously, with an interest in botanical art and illustration, I love seeing the trees bud and flowers bloom. So much material and inspiration!

I am working on the second trillium drawing - the one with the open bud - but just barely started, so no photos yet. 

However, I have been working on more bracelets for my Etsy shop and have completed quite a few. I am also excited to report that I have had 3 more sales! Thanks to all of my customers who have purchased so far. I hope that some of my new items will catch some attention now that we are heading into the short-sleeve time of year!

Some of my most recent creations are listed below. If you want to see more photos, click on the item to get to my Etsy shop and further details!

I love the bracelets! You really do have a great button collection.

I've forgotten. Do you know about the button jewelry group on Flickr? If not, I bet they'd love to see your pieces. :)

I like this whole collection. They go so nicely together... I could see stacking them in different combinations.

Your jewelry is beautiful...it makes me think of Egypt for some reason. We saw an incredible King Tut collection there, and I thought of this art when I saw yours. Just thought I would share that. Saw you on Blogland.

Greetings to you from Wichita, Kansas

Thank you so much, Lisa! That is such a neat comparison - to Egypt! Wow. Glad you found me through Blogland. Thanks for stopping by!
