Moving, Creations Locations and more!

I've coined the term "Creation Location" for all of the non-show locations where you can find my creations!
I have 5 locations presently.
Pappagallo in the Galleria, Edina, MN, USA
SaraCura in Dinkytown, U of MN Twin Cities-Minneapolis, MN, USA
Willow Bridge Center, Cambridge, MN, USA
Santa Lucia, Princeton, MN, USA
and now: what I'm calling the Creation Cottage right next to Camp Holiday near Deerwood, MN, USA.
This cute and cozy little cottage is filled with hand-crafted goodness and will be open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Here are some of the Sprite Creations you can find there:

I've moved my creations from Spirit River in Anoka, MN while arrangements are being made to reopen in their new location. I'm looking forward to being back with them later this summer!

More movin' and groovin': I've moved my online studio presence over to my Etsy Shop. If you've visited my ArtFire online studio and were looking for a creation you've seen there, please head on over to my Etsy shop or contact me!

Look for more, more, more!
Sprite Creations is undergoing changes just as much as everyone else in the world!!!
Check out my Show Schedule for a chance to visit me and my creations in person! I've a busy summer lined up and more updates on the way!

With all the changes in Creation Locations, I've more new creations on the way!
I'm also contemplating new types of Creations, such as shawl pins, cuff links, and... well, you'll just have to see, won't you? *grin*
See you soon!!

Hmmm.. there appears to be a theme....

I finished up one last batch of creations before pricing/tagging and inbetween packing and organizing for the festivities this weekend! These are pendants and I noticed two things after I was done. There is a preponderance of agate and the colours black and white. Not sure if that is significant or not, but there you are then!
They are all beautiful, none-the-less and all suspended on Sterling Silver wire with Bali or Sterling Silver for the finishing touches. So, in and amongst the black agate, you'll find dragons and phoenix, stars, and amber. The small round pendant in the middle is fire-crackled agate from Tibet. And just for something a little different, we spy quartz in the bottom right corner topped with a hematite star.

Here is a photo of these beauties!

And with that, onward with the day!
You can find me and these pendants at the Creation Locations below during this fabulous weekend!
Happy Hour Psychics from 4 to 8pm at Spirit River in Anoka, MN, USA and Spring Psychic Faire at Lake Harriet Spiritual Center at 44th and Upton in Minneapolis, MN, USA! Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 1 to 6pm.
It would be lovely to see you during this time!

Fire and Water...

Not as incompatible as one might think! These seem to be the themes that I'm creating around these last couple of days.. with a few bits of modern art here and there!
Not really surprising, either, since it has been rainy as of late.. which entices me to curl up next to a cozy fire!

Most of these are so new, they don't have titles yet.. except for the cat & fish earrings in the top-center. Those were created around the title, which is, "CatFish".
Here is the photo!

I have a busy week ahead of me with the regularly-scheduled Fairy Tarot event at The Edge Coffeeshop in Saint Paul, MN, USA.

I and some of my creations will be at Spirit River Gallery & Exchange in Anoka, MN, USA this coming Friday from 4pm to 8pm.

And! I and my creations be at LHSC Spring Psychic Faire at 44th and Upton (UPTOWN!), Minneapolis, MN, USA both Saturday and Sunday.

Really, that's been my theme these last few days!
I've photos to show you of my most recent creations and there are Swarovski crystals and Cubic Zirconia, oh my!
It was a lot of fun creating with all of this and I particularly liked pairing the sparkly crystals with the lampwork beads and recycled components, the contrast of (literally!) old and new and how this was reflected in the finishes and textures.

Here is the group photo of the hearts - cubic zirconia and lead-free pewter with crystals. I don't think they respond to the typical photographic encouragement to smile, "Chheeeesse". But they do warm my heart. (HA!! PUN INTENDED!)

And the necklace that is SO eco-friendly with it's recycled/upcycled materials! (Don't forget those crystals peeking out here and there!)
Title: Old Time Finery

Look for more coming soon! I'm on a roll! I'm experimenting with a new clasp arrangement, more multi-media necklaces and a few rings here and there!
See you soon!

What's New!

I've been busy and so updating here has slipped by far longer than intended!
So! What is new?
We have a few new partners and a new location in which to see our fabulous creations!
Look for us in Princeton, MN, USA at Santa Lucia woven amongst Mugwort Maggies display! Santa Lucia is a new ice cream parlor and art & craft space with an adjoining continuous garage sale! The folks who stock this garage sale space change every week, so there is always something new to see!
And while the garage sale wares are always different, the owner of Santa Lucia has takes great pride in the quality of her ice cream, so you can be assured of nummy treats anytime! If you are in the area, stop by and sample a few delectable flavors!
Mugwort Maggies is a line of hand-crafted body care products including laundry detergent, sugar scrubs, oils, bath sachets and more! You must smell them to believe them!

Here is a photo of our display!

Speaking of displays.. I hadn't had a chance until recently to stop by and check out Saracura since the remodelling and Rebirthing of her store! I really like the fun, new layout! There is a henna table just inside the door, beads, jewelry, gorgeous clothes including hand-made belly dance ensembles, jingly belts, paintings, chocolate, oils, incense and so much more! If you are looking for something unique, out-of-the-ordinary or exotic, I would highly recommend stopping by!

Here are some of my creations that can be found there...
