Volume 18 Issue 6, June 2021

What's New in June?

The long-awaited publication of The Joy of Jewelry Making happened. It has been on my desk for over four years while I worked on everything but that. Now, it’s on the bookshelves at Amazon and available as an e-book.

The summer is rushing in here in Florida, and as part of our summer plans, we have added a lot of native wildflowers to keep our bees, butterflies and birds happy. We had a wonderful spring showing of butterflies all over the yard, so we would like to repeat that again next year.

I am anxiously watching my milkweed for signs that little monarchs are marching along the leaves. Since they start up so tiny, I am not sure if I have missed any of them. We also planted a lot of black-eyed susans and cosmos. I planted a lot of seeds and only have about a dozen plants. I must be really bad at seed planting! The ones I do have I am fussy over like a hen with chicks. Moving them in and out of the sun; making sure they have water and propping them up when they look like they’re drooping. Only to have them die.

Took a little side trip a couple weekends ago and stopped by Big Daddy Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing in Gainesville, Florida. I thought I collected everything under the sun! Nope, Big Daddy has me beat!

What’s New

Summer Earrings: Lots of new earrings featuring summer and tropical art work. Paired with crystals.

Thimbles: I started some new Christmas thimbles and one for your sister or your nana.

New Book: The Joy of Jewelry Making Create for fun. Sell for Profit.

You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website.

Until next month,




Things to Look Forward To:

New Products:

Pushpins: I have too many themes to mention here, but from teachers to nurses to friends, I am doing designs as quickly as I can.

Statement Beads: Working on large beads for ZOOM calls and being on camera. Both earrings and pendant necklaces.

Prints and Posters: Bible verse posters and other art featuring hot rods and more are in production.
