Notes & Updates
September 30, 2017:  SOLD - just took one demonstration with the black light.

September 26, 2017:  I added 7 heart-shaped necklaces to the catalog today.  Of special note, Neck0407 has a tiny center piece of uranium glass which is heart-shaped.  Uranium glass glows in the dark under a black light.  Rare, rare, rare!  

September 15 - a few things of note lately.  The heron sun catcher has been hanging in my dining room window, and after seeing it day after day, I decided it might need some tweaking.  Even though I stayed true to the photo I took, it originally looked like a big goofy bird standing in front of a surf board.  The back wing was all wrong.  And a bird taking flight usually lifts its feet and stretches the legs out in back.                                                                                                                                    
So, we've gone from this :
to this:   

SC0170 is still priced at $50 - check out the details on the Sun Catchers page

...and I thought you'd enjoy this picture of a true, blue beachcomber - ignoring everything else around him as he picked up glass on the beach this morning!


August 13, 2017 -Oh My!  Has it been that long since I've posted here?  July was an extremely rough month for me.  The stress of taking care of my dying-at-home husband finally built up enough to send me to the Emergency Room twice (dehydration, low potassium and pneumonia).  I'm so very thankful my older sister was able to come and stay for several weeks.  I'm still "recovering" (I hope!), but I've been able to work a few projects, and today I delivered another order of necklaces and ornaments to the Fort Worden Gift Shop.  The necklaces included 3 hearts and 2 orcas.  These are additions to the line, and I will be working on some more soon....between follow-up medical appointments and naps, lots of naps.


June 1, 2017 - Dinosaurs...20 of them...were delivered today to some devoted fans from San Rafael, California.  So, as far as inventory goes, they are extinct again.  I can make more - want some?  Give me a shout.  I currently have 6 varieties available (I realize that pteradactyls are technically not dinosaurs, but where else am I going to include them?)


May 6, 2017 - I just delivered ten more necklaces and 25 ornaments to the Fort Worden Gift Shop.  They probably have a better selection than I do right now!  The nice thing about delivering there is I can tack on another beach walk easily.  We've had some stormy weather this week, and I've been able to get out there before and after - must say the "before" trip was more lucrative, but today's walk was enjoyable, too. 

The Rhododendron Festival Arts and Crafts Fair takes place downtown Port Townsend next weekend, and although I won't have a booth there, I'd encourage everyone to come out and support your local artists and crafters.  And, as always, let me know if there's any of my stuff you'd like to purchase (remember:  Mother's Day, Graduation, Father's Day, etc. - all coming up soon!) or simply click on the button next to the item to add to your cart.


April 1, 2017 - March just zipped on by.  I DID manage to add to my stock of necklaces and ornaments.  They are all available until spoken for (with $$$).   As always, if you'd like to negotiate for a volume, or special order, give me a shout - probably best via e-mail, but you can leave voice mail on the phone, too.  Use the "Contact Us" link to reach me easily.


March 5, 2017 - This week I will be delivering the first order to the Fort Worden Gift Shop - 28 necklaces and 30 ornaments -- they'll have a better selection than I have on hand!  My stock is all listed in the catalog pages here, and you can order directly from me.
Here's what I am delivering to the Gift Shop:

Yes, I can make more, but give me a little time - just finished up these 58 pieces in the last couple weeks, and I'd like to complete some other projects I was working on.

February 2017 - Yes, It's been quiet on the business scene lately.  And I will probably not be doing many shows this year, as I have taken on "primary care giver" duties at home (my husband has cancer).  My products ARE still available, and I will ship them within a day or two of your order, so don't be shy!  I can also sell to you directly if you happen to be in Port Townsend - just give me a call. 
If you're looking for necklaces or ornaments, the Gift Shop at Fort Worden has a fair selection, too.
