Hedgehog Delight

My husband is from Germany and many of the German picture books that his family gave our children, when they were little, featured adorable hedgehogs. Here in the United States we don't have wild hedgehogs, although some people keep them as pets.  One summer, many years ago, we took a vacation with my husband's family, at a resort in Ronshausen. And that's where I first saw these cute little critters. I've been a fan ever since!

I've had these cute little polymer clay hedgehogs for such a long time that I no longer remember who the artist was that made them. Aren't they cute?
The ribbed, gold tone tubes were salvaged from a vintage necklace and I topped them with some luscious, faceted garnets. These cuties are now available on my website.

Autumn Leaves

A couple of weeks ago, my friend, Kristi Bowman Gruel, of Kristi Bowman Designs, sent me these delightful copper connectors that she colored and sealed with ice resin. I love how vivid her colors always are. I added polymer clay leaves, little ceramic flower shaped bead caps, agates and glass, along with my handmade copper ear wires.

 I'm in love with these! They are perfect for fall - but I'd wear them throughout the winter too, because these are my favorite colors to wear! You can find these earrings in my shop now.

For The Good

 Hello! I hope everyone is doing well!

It's been a very busy time for me so I thought I'd share a pair of earrings I currently have up for auction at the "Artists For Animals" event on Facebook.  The event raises needed funds for animal rescues and organizations throughout the US.

I made a sweet pair of rustic dog earrings from artisan etched glass rings and matte ceramic coin charms.  The dog charms are hand-drawn by NadiaTerra of Bulgaria.

I think this is the shortest post I've ever done!  Sorry!

If you care to drop by the event I will provide a link below.   There are all kinds of artisan crafts available benefiting a variety of animal charities.  I believe this is the third year and it's been growing leaps and bounds. 

Thank you,
