New Painting and Jewelery

"Midnight Masquerade" -- This is my newest painting that I just finished Wednesday night!  She was done for the Enchanted Visions Project, and my first contribution to it!  :)  I'm really happy with how she turned out.  This is the first full-size painting I've done all Summer!

I still have 4 more of the Garden Series ACEOs left to do, but I needed a break to do something else.  I don't know if I'll do another bigger painting next or another ACEO.

Watercolor, white goauche and colored pencil.  8.5 x 11"  Check out the detail view!  Prints and the Original painting are available on my website!

New Dog Tag Necklaces!!
I made a new batch of dog tag necklaces recently!  These new ones feature the ladies of my Garden Series!  The dog tag necklaces are my favorites that I've made!  I think they showcase the artwork the best!  :)  These and more are available in my Etsy Shop for only  $12 each.  You can visit it by clicking the picture below!

I've recently tried out making chainmaille jewelry for the first time!  It's really addicting, so I can see making some more things in the future.  I already have a couple in mind!  :)

This was my first attempt... the Dragonscale weave.  It's kind of an ambitious weave for a first time, but I saw a bracelet like it, so I had my mind set on making one.  lol

My next creations were a matching necklace and bracelet!  I only intended on making the necklace, but had enough supplies for a bracelet too!  This was done in the Full Persian weave, with bright aluminum rings and large Jet Swarovski crystal beads!  I love them and was tempted to keep them for myself!  lol  But I put them up for sale on Etsy.  (might have to make a set for myself sometime ;)They are for sale separately in my shop.  Click the picture below to see them.
