I have been busy creating more necklaces in the Rose of the Heart Collection and starting a new collection called Chained Heart in the Square Marketplace.
Stop by at Square Marketplace and shop.

Well it was my turn to end up in the hospital. I had a lung
collapse. Talk about taking your breath away! It was not a fun experience. However, the lung is repaired, I have recuperated
sufficiently that I think I am ready for the first of two art fairs
I have scheduled. I missed the deadlines on several for which I intended to apply. I was flat on my back in the hospital.
This bouquet is hematite gray and Montana pale blue rhinestones. I removed all the findings from the back, then used jump rings to suspend the pearls, rhinestones and chains
beneath the bouquet.

Since I last posted a lot has happened. Life, mostly, but it impacts everything else. My wife had more problems with her gut and had surgery Christmas Day. They found a surgical staple in the middle of an abscess, my official retirement from public education, taxes. You get the idea. I had a lot of pent up energy which burst forth in the creation of seven necklace sets, all Rose of the Heart variations. Apparently I am not done with that theme yet. I keep getting more ideas.
Next on the agenda is art fair applications. Having taken a year off, I have to start from scratch, except for a couple of art fairs who said I would still be considered a returning artist,
which streamlines the process.
