New Starfish

Today I am so excited to be doing something new with my clay!  I must first say a BIG thank you to Tina Holden for selling me the starfish molds, and for so generously sharing a great tutorial on how to use them!  
I love it when artists are so kind and happy to share talent and knowledge with one another.
These adorable starfish were really fun to make, and I have a ton of ideas for using them in jewelry!  Of course new starfish jewelry will be appearing soon in my Etsy so keep looking!  If anyone would like to take a look at Tina's items, you can find her at and

Happy April!

Happy April everyone!  As typical here in Washington State this time of year, we've had everything from hail, rain and wind to bright blue sky and sunshine today!
This is a new pair of earrings I made this morning...I'm giving a free pair of them away with purchases in April in my Etsy shop.  Now it's time (unfortunately) to walk away from the beads and go clean up the kitchen, ugh!
