First Friday is Back to School at Main Gallery 404!

Today is the First Friday of September, so all the galleries and shoppes are open in Downtown Bloomington, IL from 5 – 8 PM.

My work is at the Main Gallery 404 located at 404 North Main Street, Bloomington, IL.

The theme is “Back to School” and many artists are sharing art bookmarks.  I couldn’t resist using my cats and bats and scary ideas for an early Halloween theme.

bevy of bookmarks

Rings are the thing this month as I’ve added some “bullet” lampworked glass/wire-wrapped rings, and beach glass pendants with tinkling drops.  A splash of last minute color to remember summer as we head into fall.

Beach glass and rings

Hope you’ll join us tonight if you’re in the area!

Valentines and Beyond… A Tree of Hearts

Tree of Hearts

Tree of Hearts

 

There’s a new tree of hearts in town available at The Pod, in Uptown Normal, Illinois, across from the Discovery Museum.

Here’s their information through Uptown Normal, and here’s their Facebook page.

I love to make and wear hearts all year round, but especially for Valentine’s Day.  It is one my favorite times of the year.  Hearts, chocolates, champagne… who needs more?  Oh yes, jewelry makes celebrating complete.  

Other places to find my jewelry are listed on my Here I Am page.   Thanks again for your continued support.

Here are a few more new things you’ll find on that tree:

Copper heart with wrapped silver, garnet, charm.

Valentine, Valentine, Wherefore Art Thou, Valentine?

Some new fun–ROMANTIC– pieces added to my display at The Bead Parlor in Bloomington, IL just in time for Valentine’s Day! 

Oh, darling, how did you know I liked pink?

Kitties love hearts, too!

Which Valentine has a February (amethyst) birthday?

Brown is the color of my true love's eyes.

Or were they green?

Yes, dear.
