As I was looking through the creations and photos I have for you today, I realized there is a central theme of glimpses of other worlds and that seems apt for both the title of this blog and a 'snapshot' of my life right now! So! Let's dive right in!
If you didn't have a chance to join me at the Saint Paul Art Crawl over the weekend, you were both missed and missed out on a lot of fun!
Here is a photo of my booth...
We were treated to live soundscaping music from Todd Madson on Saturday, performance art at the recycled milk carton igloo built by child-artist Matilda) just to the right of my booth later that day and all sorts of nifty people adopting creations throughout the weekend! Though I love to see the creations adopted and couldn't be happier that they found perfect homes; some of the creations adopted this weekend have been travelling with me for a while...so...I felt a little odd and a little melancholy as they left with their people (some of them being worn on their people in the leaving!!).
But enough of that perspective!
Let's move on to the creations I have to show you!
I've had these luscious lampwork glass beads by Beau Hawn for a little while and was determined to make something of them today! And so I have!
Paired with Swarovski crystals and Czech-pressed glass, I think they are lovely!
Title:A Window into the Fire Sprite's World
Ingredients: Beau Hawn lampwork glass, Czech "window" glass, Swarovski crystal, sterling silver.
And the last creation is a peek into the more watery depths...
Title: A Peek Into a Mermaid's World
Ingredients: Czech-pressed glass, copper, metal, surgical steel earwires (hypo-allergenic)
And so there you have it!
See you on Friday!!!
