ARTFIRE TREASURY

Boy am I excited.  I just set up my Artfire shop a couple weeks ago and today I got a notice that Tonja Lenderman http://tonjastreasures.com/wordpress/ chose one of my Celtic Crosses to be in her Artfire Treasury.  Tonja does some beautiful polymer clay and writes great tutorials.  Check out her blog and Artfire shop.
Bottom row, second from left.  Thank you Tonja.  I'm really enjoying the Artfire experience.  Got my new, replacement camera from HSN today and it works great.  Just need to find a place with correct light to take my pictures.  I have a portable light studio that came with those little lights but they get really hot.  We had awnings put on the windows in my office because it gets so hot and now the light doesn't come in like it use to.  We live in Arizona and my studio is in the southeast corner of the house.  WHEW.

CELTIC CROSS WITH BEADS

I made quite a few crosses with the Mokume Gane that I did and I finally finished another one today and put it in my Artfire shop.  I'm not really really a cross person but I had some molds and when I figured out how to put the Mokume Gane into the mold and make a perfect cross, I decided to make quite a few of them.  People who aren't cross people have purchased them for friends as Christmas gifts and I'm trying to come up with different and unusual ways to finish them.

This one has uv resin on top, it was done with quite a bit of gold leafing and some alcohol inks.  It has Swarovski crystals and gold spacer beads hanging from the bottom and the neck cord is 6 green covered wires and one green ribbon.  The bail has a large heart on it and needs a home.




Thanks again Tonja.
