Wraps Heading to Coyote Creek

It's amazing what you can accomplish when you are snow bound. Here are a few of the pieces that will be heading to Coyote Creek Arts in a couple of weeks. I'm working on getting as many earrings done as I can as they take the longest time to do right now. I finally have a design that works well for the small round globes. And now I have documented the process so I can refer back to it. Nice to have those repeatable patterns. The basics are there, I just add variations with crystals, bead, plain, or swirls. There are a few of the crinklized ones in this group. The set in the upper left is some of the new dichroic I purchased a few weeks ago. Lovely colors.

Dan is using the snow blower as I write this, digging us out. We have plans to go the the Colorado Springs Philharmonic "Old & New"...Mozart, this afternoon, taking Dan's mom as our birthday gift to her. The only problem is, she needs the plow guy to open her driveway...a mere 1/4 mile in length...up hill too. We don't have a way to get her out, so hopefully, all this will come together so we can pick her up.

Happy creating all!

So glad to see that you're cranking on the earrings, because after all, Mother's Day is coming up! :)
They look great!

Hope you're able to dig out! And I hope you don't send too much of that our way. :)

Lovely ear rings. Did you do these all while waiting to be plowed out. (I won't complain about our chilly spring. I really couldn't handle snow in April)

Kathleen Krucoff said...

Wow you guys are just wonderful.

Thanks Sheila! I hope they will become customer favorites.

Hi Karen!
Yes, Mother's Day will be the sneak preview at the new gallery. I hope to have some in my etsy store too. Oh, the took Dan 2 1/2 hours with the snow blower to clear the driveway so we could get out. Hopefully there won't be much headed your way.

Thank you Celeste! Maybe I should start an earring series called snowbound.

Hi Susan. Yes, I did do all of these while house bound. I'm glad you like the ear rings.

Thanks Kristin! Yes you are right, I will post bigger pictures next time. I was in a bit of a hurry yesterday morning, so did a 'group' shot. Thanks for the feedback on my wrapping too, always nice to hear another perspective on how it looks. :)
