what i've been working on...

i really haven't been working on much jewelry lately, aside from made to order items that need to ship, because sometimes i just need a break from it.  what i have been doing (besides traipsing through the woods and getting into ATV wrecks with chris) is working on things for my art shop.  i spent a good chunk of last saturday taking pictures of prints in a simple white frame to give them a more finished look.  i don't know about you, but something that's always a deal breaker for me when looking for art is showing it hanging or framed.  in a frame?  it's in my shopping cart.

i still have several more to add to my shop, and a few that need to be finished so i can make prints, but all in all i'm happy to have this little escape from jewelry making.  and my fingers and nails appreciate the break from metal, too.

what have you been working on lately?


  1. Wow! Have you been secretly painting for long? Or did you just have this hidden talent for watercolours that sprung out suddenly, because these are really beautiful.

  2. Argh! You are so talented! I love the origami bird print. That's the one fold I remember and if I have gum wrappers and I'm bored, I leave little birds wherever I go.

  3. Danielle these are so beautiful! I love the juxtaposition of the watercolor with the thin lined hand. I know I don't know you really at all, but these paintings look like you- if that makes sense. Anyways, you are super talented!

  5. You are really talented for this crafty work, I'd definitely like to own some of those pieces you made!
    And I know how you're feeling, I also love to have at least a little break after a long time of hard working. :)
    I've been working on my marks at school and improving my blog, now that you've asked. ;)

  6. Neat! I like all of them. Bring one over to me!

    1. Hi Danielle.

      I just wanted to let you know that I found you and I adore your blog, attitude, and interests. I think too often people blurk (blog + lurk) and don't comment when they want to... I wanna change that!

      Keep up the good work. You are a positive and gorgeous force on the internet.



  7. Those prints are so cute - love the way they loo in the white frames!
