Patricia Brett's Glory 1

Look at what I found! I found an artist through buying beads at her shop on Art Fire! I think she may think I am stalking her because I keep responding to her emails and now I have bought some of her work. But this woman, Tricia, is very talented and she is multi talented. Don't you love this purple flower. I think it is digitally done. I have been dying to learn how to work with my computer and do digital work and Tricia is my perfect example of how beautiful one can be using digital art. I also bought one of her digital pieces that is a bit more depressing but it describes almost exactly how I feel when I go into a Bipolar Depression. It is in all black and white and very stark. This is where you can see her ENTIRE portfolio:

Are you a beader? She has some beautiful beads at

So take a few and go visit her shop and her art studio. You won't be sorry and you just may find something that you just can't live without or something that might make your day a bit better.

Creations with Heart

Julie from Creations with Heart put one of my watches on her blog. So naturally I started looking at her things in her store and I found this fabulous necklace with the animal print pendant. I love tourmaline too. She does beautiful work. I sell earrings so I don't want to say too much about how beautiful her earrings are but I must speak the truth and her earrings are great. LOL Julie is a multi talented artist. Her shop is at: so go take a peek.

MikiCat Designs on Art Fire

I just found MikiCat Designs through a mutual guild we are in and then I found this wonderful necklace that the artist made. I love swarovski crystals even though I work mostly with semi precious gemstones (I add swarovski whenever I can). This is a gorgeous necklace and hope you go see all the pictures the artist has to off at: The artist uses argentium silver which is a great silver to prevent tarnishing. I hope you visit the artist's shop : There you will find all kinds of fun things. Have fun as you go exploring!

Dice Earrings!!!!!!!

I just had to post these earrings here because they are sooooo cute! I had a bunch of beads like these years ago and made a necklace and bracelet out of them. Now I can't find either. And decided I should make some earrings out of them and see if anyone would like a pair. They are the perfect gift for someone that likes to play boardgames or likes to gamble or do stuff like that. I think they are so cute!. I love the little triangular seed beads too. You can see more of them at:

I hope you all are having a fun and happy day. Did anyone see the Dexter finale last night? Feel free to comment here. I did and was stunned and saddened too. :-/
If you are newly reading my blog be sure to "follow" just off to the side. I love to have people follow me.

On a personal note

You all know that this blog is about my watches and earrings and other artists but it is also about me personally because that effects my art. Tuesday I finally started Femara, the pill I will be taking for the nest 5 YEARS of my life to make sure the cancer stays away in all parts of my body. I finished the radiation...all blisters are healed...I am no long TIRED all the friggin' time.

I did go through a hypomanic phase which allowed me to gets lots of earrings made and lots listed in both Etsy and Art Fire. LOL I have had a bit of the blues but nothing to freak out about YET. So I am happy about that mostly I am trying to ignore any of the blues I am feeling as DENIAL sometimes...rarely but sometimes...makes them go away. I just dont' want to crash after having the hypomanic phase. I have told the woman I talk to about all this and she is on the same page as I am so that is good. I am counting on the blues staying the blues and not going into a major depressive episode. I have too many earrings to list and too many watches to make for that!

Jewelry by Fyfe

There is an artist in this guild that I am in and she did the above shown necklace and I just had to show it in my blog. It is outrageous and quite beautiful. Her shop Jewelry by Fyfe is located here: I think this piece that I posted in my blog struck me because it reminds me of the ocean. Every Sunday my husband and I take our 3 dogs to the beach. It is a place where I find peace (when my dog Chopper isn't trying to get at another dog LOL) This necklace is just wonderful and daring.

Sumatra Spice Soap...MMMM

A few weeks back I decided to hunt down some clove soap on Etsy because I love clove scented soap. Well, I found a treasure and wanted to share it here with you. You may want to even buy some Christmas gifts from this cute little shop on Etsy. The soap I found is called Sumatra Spice Soap and it is a little piece of heaven. It has clove, cinnamon, myrrh, orange, ginger and vanilla bean. It lathers and envelops my body for a sensual pleasure every time I take a shower. If you go to her shop just look for Sumatra Spice, but don't stop there because there are so many other scents to play with you will not know which to choose. I also got Cracked Amber which is wonderful too. It is more subtle than the Sumatra Spice and it holds it's own.

Her shop addie is: Have fun looking at all the choices.
