Trinity School in Atlanta hosts a "Spotlight on Art" Artists Market. This year I have been invited to participate and will be taking four of my fiber art pieces. I have never been to this event, but have heard that it is fabulous. The artwork is supposed to be unbelievable, so I am honored to have been asked to participate. If you live in the Atlanta area, please visit the "Spotlight on Art" Artist Market, February 15 - 20, 2010. (
"Two Sisters" is one of the pieces that I will be taking to the market.

Jewelry Stash

I have a huge jewelry stash that I use both in my fiber art and my junk art. These photos show a small portion of what I have collected. Luckily, I have family and friends that donate their pieces - but I have great luck at thrift shops and flea markets.

I take some of them apart and use them one piece at a time. Others, I use just as they are.

"LuLu" is another of my junk art pieces. This is another piece of wood that I found on the beach. I used bottle caps, wire, pieces of wood, jewelry, shells and beads for embellishment. The 1980's earrings that she is wearing belonged to one of my sisters.
I then drilled holes for the wire eyelashes and her beaded hair. She looks a little sad, doesn't she?

This is a piece that I made a few years ago.
I has sayings on it that my mother said when we were growing up. She had four girls, so I know that we drove her crazy.

This is another junk piece made from a piece of wood that I found on the beach. I added paint,beads, buttons and jewelry.
Went to the beach last weekend and had some good finds: 3 sharks teeth, a couple of pieces of wood, great big eyeglass frames and some great shells.
We also saw some interesting sea creatures that had washed up on the beach. (We threw them back in the ocean)
It was a little cold outside, but we had a great time.
