This pendant is made from ceramic and lampwork glass, reverse painted with vitreous enamel and fused. It is finished with a Hill tribe silver drop bead.

If I close my eyes I can imagine a garden. It is lush and green with the smell of damp morning earth. The flowers are opening to the warmth of the sun. The fragrant air moves quietly with the whisper of butterflies and honey bees. Birds begin to sing in the distance as the sun reaches down to warm my face...

OK Now it's back to reality. SORRY!

Baby its Cold Outside

Here we go, another cold, cold winter. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything. I think animals that hibernate have the right idea. Fatten up & go to bed for 3 months. Its a good plan. Wake me up when its over.
