My fascination with fabrics and texture continues as I venture into a new territory with leather. I received some wonderful recycled scraps of super soft leather and decided to create some earrings. First out of the gate are these feather leather earrings. I made two pairs and sold them the first day they were in the shop. More in black will be listed soon, but for now they are also available in tan.
I am excited to further my exploration with this new medium. I will be adding lots of new designs in the coming weeks.

At any rate I am happy to have it and will be putting it up for sale on my site as soon as I get it fixed.
Thank you all for the wonderful support you gave me by spreading the word.

In addition to working on my line of fiber accessories called Tessuto I have also been playing with vintage chain. Here is a sneak piece from my upcoming vintage chain collection called Vincenza.

I am need of a little inspiration. I have several shows coming up (one is a month away - eek!) that I must prepare for and I am feeling a bit lost. I have lots of ideas floating around my head right now, but every time I sit down to create something my mind goes blank. I am forcing myself to take a stroll through thrift stores this week while on my lunch break. I'll take lots of pictures and post them here. Hopefully I will find some inspiration in them and so will you!

I just applied for the Women's Festival of Crafts happening in November here in Burlington and I hope to be involved in the Art Hop in September. This is all a kick in the butt to get my act in gear and start designing some fall/winter accessories. I have an obsession with chains and fiber right now and I can't wait to start creating.
For now I am going to enjoy the last 30 minutes or so of daylight and actually sit down on my back deck and enjoy my over grown gardens. I'll weed you soon gardens - I promise.
