Show and Tell Monday

Hi, I hope everyone is having a great fall week. Its been gorgeous out west. This week I will be starting something new. I will have a few items in a local antique mall called Merchants Square. I am pretty excited about this, because I have not had anything in an actual retail store yet. So this is new and I am looking forward to learning all kinds of new stuff!

This weekend I did get a couple items finished. I had a request from a customer to have more rose bracelets, as they were all sold out. So I got one finished and will be adding a couple to my website this week. I also met a wonderful artist named Marie Segal. She is a oven bake clay artist. She lives in Southern California and has taught many classes world wide. So I am experimenting with some new ideas that Marie is designing for me. This is my first attempt. I have to go out and get a few findings to make more, but I can tell I will love working with these flowers. Be sure to visit Marie at

So until next time, I really hope you all have a happy and healthy week! gail
