I created this wind-chime from a cobalt Blue wine bottle. I made all the components from rolled slab clay (the large leaf, bead balls, ceramic chips and finial). The large leaf and accompanying parts are painted black and then a silver buff paint is applied over the top of it. I strung it together with silver colored chain. It will last a lifetime. It has been sealed with spray glaze.

My life is filled with the joy of knowing- when I arise in the morning, I will be doing creative things I love. I feel God gave me a gift and I intend to use it as long as I am able. I feel so blessed. I do crafts for the extra money it affords me but if I didn't make a penny I would still do it. It's that big a part of my life.
I do all kinds of artistic things. I work in wood and clay mostly but also paint with all other mediums. I will paint on anything that doesn't move.
I'm most proud of the Ceramic Buttons. I started crafting them in 1989. They are over 20 years old now. That makes them antiques. They are 100% handcrafted from the concept of the patterns, to the finished product.
