I found some of the glass beads I made in College

Mass College of Art was so amazing. Alfred Fiandaca taught Fashion Design and it was a magic episode in the schools history. A friend taught me how to make beads. I would love to have access to the equipment again, it is really fun to do. This bead reminds me of the ice found in nature. Little flecks of black and bubbles caught as the water froze.

New Hampshire Woodland Wedding

I am work on a Vintage Wedding here in New Hampshire. The site will be 'The Cathedral of the Pines' a very beautiful woodsy outdoor setting. The vibe for the entire wedding is vintage. The Bride will be wearing a very simple vintage ecru strapless dress. The dress has a very 'Vintage Dior' silhouette. The bride has naturally curly hair, a long thin neck, and beautiful smooth ivory skin. She is wearing her hair up with tendrils falling around. I am making three neck pieces for her to choose from. here is the first one...

All Things Nature, Botanicals and the Tides

I am truly a nature girl. I have always spent as many waking hours out of doors as possible. I have been blessed with a gypsy lifestyle that allows me to live in very diverse and dramatic natural settings. For some reason I always seem to be in the right place at the right time. I have seen manta rays 5 feet across, pods of killer whales, mother and baby manatees, an eagle swooping into a lake to grab a fish in it's talons. These are a few memories from the past years in Florida.

I currently live in the shadow of Monadnock, in a small village with a very European flavor. We have a gorgeous mountain lake and beautiful natural surroundings. The nature here is on a much gentler scale. I walk every morning around a trail called Boulder Run. I have seen fox, deer and bear. I am currently watching the world up here waking up from it's winter sleep... The first flickers of animal life were the little chipmunks. They are running around very busy. The sun is coming up a tiny bit earlier every day.

Happy Spring is on the way.
