What’s Happening

Life has been pretty hectic since we returned from Oaxaca and I haven’t had much time to keep current on this blog.  Only a few days after our return, my father was  hospitalized and then needed some convalescence time. Fortunately he is fine now and celebrated his 88th birthday this week.  I got bronchitis and needed a week or so to recover.  And then my brother and sister-in-law came to visit us for 10 days.

My sister-in-law is very artistic and we had fun playing with clay during her visit.  I blogged about her creations here and here.  If you are curious about the process involved in the creation of ceramic pendants, then you’ll find these 2 posts especially interesting.  Here’s a picture of my sister-in-law forming some of her pendants.

Clay Play 14I also took her to Shipwreck Beads, which claims to have the world’s largest selection of beads.  It only about a 15 minute drive from my house!

Shipwreck 3Shipwreck 5Here’s what she came home with.

And of course, not wanting to be left out 😉 I came home with a few goodies too!

The rondells are Cherry Creek jasper and the other 2 stands are very cool glass beads that nest together and create a great texture.

We spent some time in Seattle and I went crazy photographing the gorgeous flowers in Pike Place Market, but I’ll save that for another post.

We’re back to our normal routines now and I’ve had time to resume working with clay.  I’ll have some results soon, which I will share with you here.

So that’s what’s happening  with me.  Hope all is well in your world too.

New Jewelry On Etsy

I have decided to close my ArtFire shop.  It was a difficult decision, because I’m quite fond of ArtFire, but it was just too difficult for me to manage two shops.  I decided it would be better to do one shop well, than to do a mediocre job on two shops.  So I spent most of yesterday transferring my ArtFire jewelry over to Etsy.  It feels good to have everything consolidated in one place!  https://www.etsy.com/shop/LindaLandigJewelry

I hope you’ll stop by and check out all the new goodies.  I now have over 70 items in my shop, with new things being added all the time!

A few new ceramic components coming later this weekend, too!
