Today I want to show off something that was hand made for ME, buy my Monster. This is my dragonfly! In Art Club they were given a project to make a butterfly, however (I found out from the art teacher) my Monster spoke up and said;
My Mom doesn't like butterflies, she likes dragonflies, I want to make a dragonfly!
So, the wings were turned around and he got to work. This is several weeks worth of work. There are patterns stamped into the pieces (including 2 for the eyes) and then they were painted - by hand of course and then fired and put together. I am just so amazed at my Monsters talent! So this, will be going up on our wall, right next to a family photo!!

I also would like to show off one of my creations. This beautiful Cloisonne centerpiece is another find from my Grandmother's Stash. I have no idea how old it is, but it is just beautiful. Right along with the beauty is the fact that it is also hollow, so it is VERY light. There are two sides, and they are beaded a little differently so that there are two 'looks'. Please click on the photo and look at the last 2 photos on the listing to see the difference in the sides. ENJOY!
