Above:  necklace I made this last Saturday to go with a dark pink sweater I got (worn over a black turtleneck).  Right:  journal made from a kit in a zine from the 24 hr zine swap in August.  I added the beadwork from a kit for a bracelet I never made.

Day of the Dead Goddess
yes, that's a stamp of a skull on her chest
This is the first goddess I made, and my favorite!

Flower Goddess

I'm not actually sure which is her back and which is her front...

the snake's tounge falls over her forehead
she has a snake out of black charolettes running down her back

Flower Goddess (back)

Her body was made from fabric that I hand-marbled about 12 years ago when I lived in Caldwell, KS

Orange Goddess
James loves orange
I imagine that once I get one of these gals made for Jessica, I will give this one to James

I don't know why the center bead looks so green - I suppose the light from the scanner on the dichroic surface.  The bead is actually a light purple, not green!  The necklace has size 11 pink beads and size 8 purple hexes, as well as 6 swarovski crystals near the center.  This is for Jessica's 6th birthday, and I am making a bracelet to match.

dichro piece made in Marlynda's class
my first attempt at fused glass

I love the way it looks against any color!
the same dichroic fused glass piece with a dark background

I used a quartz cab on the top of the lid
