Blue Mood

I suppose you would call this my "Blue Mood" period, but only because I seem to be drawn toward creating things that have the color blue as the focal color. Another view and a larger photograph which I will use for some artwork I am doing. I am using the print of this and then using some water color to add to the piece making it more of a scenic piece with flowers and swirls. Just an experiment to see if I can handle a brush and some color.

Recycled Avon Jars

I was a beautiful cobalt blue glass Avon salt shaker who lost her pepper partner still with the fragrance inside and never, ever used as a salt shaker. Now I am embellished with silvered jewelry pieces some of unknown ages and past lives. My base is a silvered necklace made from tiny little rounded pieces of metal and I was very expensive in my day and wound my way around the neck of a Lady of taste and elegance but when broken I was tossed aside with no future to look forward to. A little Kokopelli sits upon my top edge who was not treated well but now has a place that is safe and surrounded by friends. The very top blue bubble was a Christmas Ornament of thin glass which was only brought out for December holidays, but now I am in the sunlight daily and love it.

Vehicle Villain

Vehicle villain is made from recycled Singer sewing machine USA made age unknown, buttons, jewelry parts, an amber glass chandelier teardrop and chain arms which are moveable as is the front top part of the vehicle. The face of the driver is a recycled part of a chain belt and there is a heart button near the back.
