The glimmer and shimmer of the holidays conjure up images of jewelry,

strings of beads adorn the hallways, the entryways, 

the trees 

and strings of beads, gems, pearls adorn our bodies.

Day 4

Good morning!   This is how I felt when I went into my studio this morning to do something creative for day 4 of the Art Every Day Month challenge..


 I also read my note from the Universe, which always makes me smile.  

You've got your agenda,
I've got my agenda. my agenda is actually your agenda.
You have an agenda, Patricia, Right?
Dream on and dream big ~ 
                            The Universe

Whatever you do Patricia, dwell upon the end result and move.  I'll connect the dots.

How cool is that?  So, I'm moving forward and letting the universe connect the dots...

putting one foot in front of the other and one bead on a wire at a time.  

I never get tired of Pearls, but thought I should do something a little different today.  

After all...

So, with that in mind, this is what I might need to put on your shades because they are


are you ready for the holidays?...

These are really cute on and go with anything!

I'm back...

Day 1 ~ Art Every Day Month 

I am so happy to be involved in a challenge called 'Art Every Day Month' where I have committed to making a piece of art every day for the entire month of November and  posting photos here on my blog.  For whatever reason, be it projects, kids or just life in general, I haven't felt very creative and needed a little nudge to help get started again.  Feel free to join me at   You can jump in at any time!  I really enjoy connecting with other creative people and sharing inspiration. 

So today, I decided to start with something small.  I actually went into my studio this morning (yep, I did!) and didn't come out until I made 8 pairs of earrings.   It felt really good and since I'm having a Holiday Open House soon I wanted to have some earrings that were simple, yet beautiful for the upcoming holidays.  I started with my all time favorite, which are classic Pearls, and incorporated some ribbon to give them a feminine and festive look.  

Soooo...Here's what I came up with:

Freshwater Pearls, brown ribbon and Sterling Silver...

Elegant Large faux Pearls, Swarovski Crystals, Freshwater Pearls and Sterling Silver...

I've always loved buttons, so these are for anyone who might be a button lover too.  Freshwater Pearls, Mother of Pearl buttons and Sterling Silver...

Freshwater Pearls, ribbon and Sterling Silver...
