Something New at Turn of the Century Shop ........

My friend Kari recently placed a custom order for some dainty little earrings for her retail shop at Holiday Acres. These are just a sampling of the order, there are more with patina's of varying shades of gold. Some are suspended on Sterling French ear wires, some on Sterling hoops. Several also have tiny gem stones, such as Serpentine, Tourmaline, Lapis and Freshwater pearls. If you're looking for some very wearable, artist made, delights stop in at The Turn of the Century Shop. Better yet make an evening of it (you'll want to make sure you have plenty of time for browsing all the wonderful and unique items Kari has in the shop) and sample some of Chef Tom's delectable eats!

Some Northern Lights....

I recently received a photo from all the way up in Alaska of a stained glass window they made modeled after the photo at the top of my blog. It seems they were searching for a pattern of the Northern Lights in stained glass  and my blog came up in the search. So I thought I should post some large sidelights that I did awhile ago that also had the Northern Lights in them. Please excuse the photos as they were taken about 2 cameras ago. The sidelights are on both sides of a center clear glass door in an entry way of a house here in town. The glass in the background is called Baroque and had to be cut from one large piece of glass. All the swirls had to match up, so they flowed together in the 9 individual panels that make up the piece. Needless to say if a piece didn't cut correctly , I would have had to start over from the beginning with a new piece of glass. Luckily the glass gods were with me and both pieces were completed without any disasters. Enjoy.

Salad Sets

 I had a few more things to take up to Chocolates & More today. A couple of Salad Sets that make nice gifts, perhaps you have a wedding shower to go to this summer?? I also know a potter who can make a salad bowl to match. Enjoy.
