Simply Adorned

A special shout out to These pieces were created by a fellow artist, and she requested some photos of a few of the things I have accumulated by her for her blog. The following are some items she has made over the years, several of which I wear on a regular basis, and if you want anything similar, contact her on her site because she is very reasonably priced, not to mention flexible about adapting designs to your personal style.

I wear this one all the time!

She does a lot of stuff with really groovy clasps too.
I've almost worn this one out.

I wear this a lot too. It goes with everything.
This one is a gem made specially with me in mind. It only goes with a few things, but it's pretty awesome as well.
And this ring may be one of the coolest rings I have ever owned. And I wear lots and lots of rings. My husband made a comment at Christmas about how on earth could I possibly need more rings because I've got one on almost every finger. I confessed that a woman can never own too many rings. Or earrings. Or shoes.

David and Britni got married!

This was the smallest wedding I have ever photographed. The ceremony was in an adorable little chapel in a small town, enjoyed by immediate family and a few close friends. The best part was the simple cake and punch reception that allowed me all evening to photograph the newlyweds. They are so cute together!
This is my favorite! The light at this spot, at almost any time of day is AMAZING!

These glasses were all a proud find of the groom. He is a religious second hand store shopper, and provided an abundant supply of fun glasses for the reception.

Of course, this is my other favorite. I love the contrast of textures.

Land of Make Believe IV

After some genuine encouragement to pursue my idea of a Land of Make Believe calendar, I spent an obscene amount of time perfecting the following three images for my 2012 calendar. I can hardly wait for my order to arrive. Anything I don't sell at the November show, I intend to give away as Christmas gifts. The fun colors, and new textures of these just tickles me to death! I am really excited about this project!

Blissful Phenomenon III

Once again, I spent a day dabbling in smoke photography, and these are some that I absolutely love. I needed some new pieces to take to a show in November, and a few of these I plan to sell. I'm sure I could say more about the process, and some of the comments people have made on them, but I'm going to cut this short because I've been sitting at a desk in my husband's cave since before lunch time, and now it's time for bed.

This one is my favorite!
