1000 Markets

I am thrilled to be a a staff pick on the community page of 1000 Markets. If you have not visited 1000 markets yet please do. It is full of stunning Artist's work. Or you can also shop by Market. Which are groupings or artist in like themes.
From there website:
We are a community of marketplaces...
Our markets are more than just collections of products; they are full of people and stories. They have voices and personalities.

Our merchants are small, independent, artisan businesses built by people who love their craft. They make and sell unique products, based on their own vision, personality and story. Working together, these artisans create marketplace communities - gathering places where merchants can exchange ideas, and customers can browse and talk. Our markets are large and small, broad and narrow. Some have themes, like food, crafts, or art. Others cultivate a sense of place around a region. And some exist simply because the people in them share friendship or common values. Each market fosters its own one-of-a-kind community, always unique and interesting. "

It really is the best out there. Michelle Teka and Zoe on 1000 Markets

I'm seeing Circles....

I bought a box of copper washers that happen to be on sale at one of my new favorite on-line stores: By the way the owner, Jeanette Blix Ryan is SO NICE!!
So here was my challenge. To loosen thinking..just mix colors and enamel. So I started with 30...then 50...then 70. By then I was exhausted but determined to complete all 110!! (it was 90 degrees and no air con in the kiln studio (the kiln-1450 degrees)) I must say after getting them all done and looking at them the next day...I see I have to add more colors. Thank-fully I bought 3 boxes. Now the fun begins. To create jewelry out of them. My original thought was to make a mixed color design. But then once I sorted them by color I thought maybe monochromatic or the later and throw in a jump out color. OR color my! You can see I am now in trouble as a new tangent begins!

I escaped

I finally got to go OUT last night. My friend Teresa Wenzel ( always takes to a movie on my birthday. Well my birthday is in June...but no chick flix were out. So I told her rain check until Julie and Julia comes out. So I got to GET OUT of the house and go the movies. My hubby is so nice. Stayed at home with the kids( I have 3 yr old twins and a 4-1/2 yr old)
It has been HOT so enameling is ot my fun as I kiln is the un-air-conditioned portion of he house. So it was good to escape. I loves to movie. Soooo inspiring. I must make Boeuf Bourguignon. It is now on my list of things to do. Not only cook inspiring but blog inspiring too. I recommend it if you like Julia and to cook.
I have made a few new pieces. Playing with some new styles and colors. I love the new Pinky-rose with Lime. I also did a new single ruffled disk that is very wearable.
