Il Peep-a!

My entry for this years Easter Peep Diorama contest


Melissa's Pendant

My neighbor bought this beautiful pendant on a trip to Tucson this winter. She asked me to add a little length and string it on something other than the elastic it came on. I added a few copper rings and hung it on waxed cotton. A fun little project and a nice way to get caught up since we have all been so hunkered down this winter!

It’s been some time since I have posted. Fact is the summer is just way too short up here on the prairie and in addition to that I started a new Job in May.  That said, winter is blowing in and it’s that time of year when I get hunkered down in my little room and get back to making things.  Here are a few of the 20 or so pair I made last week for Dia de Los Muertos.

Hope to have something else new for you by next week!

Summer is way too short in the great northern prairie.  You have to get out before the weather turns or the mosquitoes come out.  In addition to those timing issues, I started a great new job and we had a short but very welcome visit from one of my sisters and her husband who were in the states for a driving trip.  It was fun, but now I miss them very much and have lots of paperwork and housework to catch up on!  I wish they would come back and distract me again…


When the warm weather rolls in, I am thinking, I should say daydreaming about a long walk on a deserted beach…  But not this week.  Hopefully that can become a reality again one of these days.  For now, how  about some beach-y ear rings?


Well the big spring sales are behind me and I am busy making new things.  I will also be selling work at a beautiful and relatively new salon in Edina called BESPOKE Hair Artisans.  Check them out, great stylists and spa treatments in a beautiful environment and free parking to boot!  Other than new earrings and working to pay the man (or is that men?) there is gardening to be done and sunshine to be enjoyed! Hope you are doing some enjoying yourselves…

If you have never been to Art-A-Whirl you may want to check it out this year.  The entire Warehouse District with all of it’s Artist Studios is open to the public.  There are all kinds of activities, music, food, etc…  Truly something for everyone!

I will be showing and of course selling some of my work with two other artists in the Keg House, you will find us on the bottom floor at the foot of the stairs. Please come by and see us! Click this link to the MAP, scroll down to the second map and the Keg House is in the bottom left corner of the enlarged portion. The link there to the Keg house gives the wrong location so just use the one I have provided!

Dates and times are on the Art-A-Whirl site link above.

Hope to see you there!


So we (OK, I) decided we would start a new tradition in lieu of the old Easter Basket.  When I heard about Peep Dioramas from a woman I work with I thought it would be just the thing for this twisted group of family and friends.  Not sure where I have been that I hadn’t heard about them before but you might enjoy the entries from our first annual foray.  Next year I am hoping for more entries too.  Those not in attendance this year were missed!

Ted's entry with door closed


…actually, I was listening to Roland Kirk and editing photos of the new earrings and neckwear I’ve made recently.  Will share a few here below. As always, all this work is for sale so please let me know if you are interested in anything!  Some of it will be going to Regla de Oro Gallery in Minneapolis, the rest available now and at upcoming sales in May.

Otherwise, we are seeing signs of Spring which will be most welcome. As the days get longer, the energy and inspiration is returning.  In preparation for  Summer I am compiling a “board” of drinks and food  on Pinterest to enjoy around our friends (so happy they live across the street!) pool. Mostly though, making up for lost time and making stuff.  I have a head full of ideas…


I am slowly learning to use my digital camera, part of it might be my eyesight.  Anyhow, I have been back at it this week and am documenting some of my own jewelry, meaning stuff I wear and is not for sale like the rest of the stuff you usually see.  Most of the pieces I make for myself have some element that has sentimental value.  I’m not so into fine jewelry, not that I don’t have an appreciation for it, it’s just not my style.  Here are a few of my things…
