New display starting to take form. The display is from Dynamic Display Systems: http://www.DynamicDisplaySystems.com. They are really nice and have a lot of options. This is 40 inches tall (table top), locking glass doors, completely fold up and retractable. I am trying to dress them down….why? Too fancy for my rustic appeal… but I needed something that was enclosed. The bottom part I am making from Canvas/Linen. It comes in black fabric or black panels from the company. So I am switching to canvas/linen table covers…. I can’t sew…..shucks. Hmmm…. MY MOMMY sews!!!! Thank goodness. She came over and sewed for two days. I got all new table covers from some huge canvas/linen painters tarps. I’ll show it all to you when I have my first show March 9th. I purchased 3 of these glass displays, 2 of the one shown and one smaller square/double stacked glass case- all with interior lights not shown. Only downfall… really $$$$$. Had to choke on my credit card numbers as I gave them out, eeekkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I want new camera!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shhh…don’t tell.
1961 Husqvarna Viking Sewing Machine. My Grandmother bought it new in 1961. What makes it special??? Has a low gear. Great for sewing things like Canvas. Works like a dream. Guess who else sews but not me: my hubby. He is good at it too because he reads blueprints all the time and is very detail orientated. Why is he not doing it. I wanted to make a mess and he is not good at that and I ask him to do too much stuff – which he always does awesome better than I even need. He is always making me something. Thank God for Mom’s. Last pic here is adding ‘Industrial Strength’ Velcro to the Canvas that will go on the tables as skirts. Not kidding package said ‘Industrial Strength’ and I think it would stick to anything and never come off… wow, strong.
This piece was a whispering surprise. I did not expect it to delight me like it has. When you use faceted gemstones there is just something magical about them… These White Topaz: one at the top a 6mm Rose Cut White Topaz and the briolette at the bottom just really did something for this piece. The stone is so beautifully understated and the gemstones just made it all work. I did not like the piece as I was making it. I fell in love with it as I set the stones. It’s like a watercolor, a soft kiss, feminine beauty. Can you tell I love it? Did I mention, I love it.
Just for Valentine’s Day: Red Top Agate, Garnets… This piece is not very big, but it’s color packs a punch… and talk about packing a punch! A Bar Fight Ring is to follow…..
This ring has two adjustable bands: A Roman Ring. It’s a power house. I put it on and it feels like you are the Queen or something. You can’t garden in this ring but you can be a judge on American Idol wearing this ring, ha!!!!!!!! Crazy Big.
