Some nature inspired jewelry for the Brucemore Garden and Art Show.

Wow, I've been gone for a bit. Actually, I've been here, just not "here". I've been busy with all sorts of stuff. A week ago my cats decided to have fight in the middle of the night. This has never happened before, but it was awful. It involved Lily (the younger one) and a paper bag that she got wrapped around her leg. Sophie (the older one) started chasing the bag and I think Lily thought that Sophie was trying to bit her leg off (except it was just the handle of the bag attacking her leg). I woke up with a start and raced into the living room to see what was going on and tripped and fell and smacked my face and head hard on a chair. I have a big bruise on my face and a bruised hand and rug-burned forehead. I look nice. Why do I have these cats anyway? Lily is still freaked out a week later, but things are finally starting to get better between them. All of this would be hilarious if it happened to someone else, funny how that works, isn't it?
I've got a show at Brucemore in Cedar Rapids on Saturday the 28th. I've been busy making finished jewelry for the show. I'm a bit behind, but I've got a week. It's amazing how much I can get done in a week. Brucemore is a National Trust property with a beautiful house and spectacular gardens. I feel very privileged to be doing a show there. If you live nearby please stop out and see me at the show. Click here for more information.
