Well..the only thing I can think of to do in the heat is stay inside, where it's nice and cool and create some fabulous jewelry.

And just to help you move your booty off the computer and onto your work table, I'm offering a SALE...a Hot Blazing bling out saddle Sale - 15% off now until the 4th.

Green Goddess Vintage Style Jewelry with Sweet Antiq's

I don't often sell my work.  I'm not sure why, other than the fact that so many times when I'm creating I attach sentimental memories to the piece, remembering loved ones who have passed and happy times with them and then I can't part with it.

This piece does hold those special memories.  As I created it I remembered the craft shows that I used to do with my Mom.  We would buy big lots of metal charms and vintage style findings and create jewelry together.  I also remember my Aunt June who was the instigator behind us doing this.  She traveled California to a variety of quilt and antique market shows to sell her wares.

With vintage so popular and some of those findings being either hard to find or downright expensive, I wanted to provide all my followers a way to cut the cost, increase their creativity and perhaps remember great times.

This is one of my latest pieces I am offering at my Etsy Store - Sweet Antiq's - Please take a moment to check it out - it really needs a good forever home!

How to make Safari earrings with Cloud Clay - New Video

My travels have certainly taken me Around the World this year!  What an amazing year this has been traveling to three different continents and a couple islands in the Carribean.

To celebrate and help me remember my traveling, I made these earrings with Cloud Clay air dry clay.  I'm always looking for inspiration and Mother Nature has a great way to get me inspired.  I hope you enjoy these and make a pair for yourself!
