This funky pendant was made from plastic bottles. I cut the shapes out by hand with scissors. I used to think heart jewelry was corny, but I think it can be funky when using different materials. How cool a Valentines gift would this be?!

I've been working with water bottles this week. I really like the clear, yet textured look. They are super funky but really simple! These are my very first pendants too. Definitely more to come from this material.

I'm now selling on another handmade venue! I just heard of it. It's called Art Fire. It's a fairly new site, but it offers some great deals for artists selling their work. The first 5,000 people to sign up get locked in at 7.00/month. That 7.00 gets you unlimited listing, selling 10 pics and a lot more! I think the normal price is 20.00/month which is still good. There are no listing or selling fees!! Give it a try! I am. Click on the link above!

My show at Vestal High School yesterday was awesome! I met a lot of really great people and got lots of positive feedback on my work. I look foward to a few weeks of building up my inventory, creating new designs and concentrating on my etsy store. March will be here before I know it! I hope to take part in the BU show March 29th 2009. That will be the start of my 2009 season.
I'd love to hear of designs you'd like to see!

This Sunday December 7th is my last show of 2008. It's at Vestal High School in Vestal, NY from 10am until 4pm. This season really flew by! Shows start up again in April, however I hope to do public selling at least once a month January-March.
So stop by Vestal High School if you're in the area. It'll be a great place to get your Christmas shopping done!

Aluminum cans make really funky bracelets! I've been cutting aluminum circles by hand and weaving them through wire. The result is a modern, earth friendly accessory! They are not sharp at all. They are actually really flexible and comfy.

I've made some fun ornaments out of plastic bottle bottoms! I'm usually only able to get use out of the body of a bottle. Now I'm starting to think harder in order to use up more of it. These ornaments look really neat when light shines through them. The string is also recycled. I only wish I could have been making eco ornaments before the Christmas season. Oh well, next year I'll be more prepared.
