winterplumflower2.jpgMy boys informed me I must make gifts for some “girl” “friends” UT-Oh I am in trouble This is the beginning of Tweenhood here in my house. Triple Trouble Tweens? I am gasping for air right now! So I said well… the girls can wear what I make right? The boys looked at me like yea BUT- that means it may need to be a bit more hip. So I revised the Charm pendants to Hip them up a bit, make them good for the tween and teen crowd. We will see if I have passed the test soon enough.

I have things for MOMs, and I have tiny pendants for the little girls so lets hope the teen scene is going to be my next thing. I may need to bring in a panel of experts. HUMMM? I may need to do a focus group LOL I think I can find a few pre-teens to test for me 🙂

I think Size may be the key and oh the Jingle factor LOL the pendant measures 38mm now that is with the loop flow and glass piece so not too big. get the details here at my shop

It has been a few weeks since my last entry I have been a little under the weather and needed a break from something and Blogging was justchristmascharms.jpg about the only thing I could cut LOL.

The Holiday shopping is in full Swing or it should be by now, that has been my past experience any way. I just knew I need to make some Seasonal stuff. I traditionally do a snowman pendant and do the three colors of Christmas oh and toss in some snow flakes. After 8 years of fusing and 18 years or more of jewelry making the only surprise is I actually get a new idea LOL

My painting skills are limited but I have to say have come a long way since last year. So I have done some teeny tiny Christmas charms. They are hand painted, fused, grooved and wire wrapped.

I am actually looking forward to this next craft show One Saturday and Sunday, It is one I have done for 6 years and it huge, I have a ton of stuff. Wish me luck!

Come see what else I have in my shoozles shop

jingle pendantWell I have been working away on items for The gallery /studio tour (ArtEast) and I have a few new ideas up my sleeve and want to give you a quick glance.

These are Fused Glass Jingle Charm Pendants, these are delicate layered glass charm components composed to make a pendant they even jingle when you wear them- hummm- I think that is how I got the name. They have multicolored glass sticks, beads, metal charms, and glass charms all put together to make a unit. They are small and a little more fragile than my other items because they are 1 layer of glass. I like to think they are LUCKY, that is totally for fun, but any time I drill a hole in glass and I don’t break it I feel pretty lucky LOL

I am enjoying all the possibilities with this new idea. I hope you will enjoy them too.
