The Art Tours may be over for the season, but for me there is still a line up of activities. Right now I'm getting ready for Cathy Bosacki's Chocolates & More Open House. This will happen on Nov. 5, 2008 from 4pm to 7pm. Cathy & Colleen run a wonderful business with some of the best tasting chocolate around. (My personal favorite is the dark chocolate Mocha Truffle, but I wish they'd bring back the carrot cake chocolate hint hint!) They invite the artists who have works at their store to be present with new work for sale. They also offer samplings of their other gourmet treats. It's a great time to try some things you just might need for the upcoming holidays, pick up some gifts, and socialize.
I'm concentrating on making a wide variety of earrings for this offering and this is an example of just one style. I'll post others as I get more photos taken, so stay tuned. The disk beads on these pieces are made from Black Nebula glass which contains lots of silver in the actual rod, which gives it the metallic sheen. The Fine Silver circles are handmade as well as the Fine Silver ear wires.
