Having a blast making new things!

 Hello one and all! It's been a little while since I made my announcement that I would no longer be making beads and jewelry components. Since then I've had many people asking just what I am going to be making. Well, the answer is simple: Whatever strikes my little fancy! 

Fist of all, I got some sassy new business cards.

 And I've been knitting away on some swatches to use as photo backgrounds for my buttons. Niffy idea, right?

 And speaking of buttons, I have just placed in the shop (the first of many-to-come) what I am calling Glazed To Order Buttons. The idea is that you can choose as many or as few as you want, in the colors you want and they will be glazed to order.  The photo above shows one design that is available now.

 And this is another design that is available. There will be many more to come as I will be adding them weekly. They can be found in the shop HERE.

I've also made new packaging for my buttons and I'm really pleased with it! (The bunny buttons are in the SHOP.)

 Today I just unveiled my new porcelain and wood shawl pins. I make every inch of them myself, including cutting, staining and waxing the birch dowels. I couldn't be happier with the way they came out. Six of them have been listed in the SHOP and the rest will go in on Monday of next week. They also make great hair sticks!

Another super fun thing that I am really excited about are my new PINCUSHIONS!! How cute is this?! They are hand-built from porcelain and I needle felt the cushions from wool. I've had this idea for a while and it's really rewarding to see them coming to life. 

Here is another version. I have a few more made as well and they will all be going in the shop on Monday.

These rainbow sets of buttons are in the SHOP right now! 

 And finally, I am still making my own jewelry and have been able to get some new pairs of earrings in the shop. I haven't made the style above in quite a while. It's nice to see them again.

All of these earrings, and more, can be found in the shop HERE

That brings you all up to speed with what I have been up to lately. I have many more new products in the works and will be able to share them with you all very soon. It has been a true joy to be working in my studio these days and I feel like I made the best possible choice in the direction my work will take. I hope I can continue to make things that everyone will like!
