A chronicle of the meanderings, false starts (which in retrospect, while sort of embarrassing turned out to be highly instructive), epiphanies, selective apathy (still evolving), wild mood swings, opinions (subject to frequent change), and life lessons of an inveterate dabbler (and her latest dabblings).

No, not sappy teen vampire love, ACTUAL twilight. You know, crepuscule. Eventide. Gloaming. Dusk. (Sorry, been hitting thesaurus.com a little too hard). That's what this bracelet makes me think of--those very last moments of a summer day, when only a molten thread of crimson sunlight remains, and the sky above goes smoky violet and plum. Only lasts a moment. I could live in that moment for a long, long time.

Deep Twilight
These little earrings sort of go with it:
Deep Twilight Earrings
 On another note, I added these to the shop the other day:
The Land of the Rising Sun Meets the Emerald Isle
And these, a variation on my "Mexican Food Earrings":
South of the Border
And a slightly different pair of "lantern" earrings:
Garden Lanterns
My right leg has fallen asleep so I think I'll call it good. Good night!


  1. All so beautiful, love the colors with your copper, they work so deliciously together. Great caps.

  2. I continue to be delighted with your disc work... drool.

  3. Your work is amazing! I love your attention to detail ... the deeply domed bead caps ... and your colors are great!

  4. The bracelet is stunning!!! I love the Mexican food earrings. They remind me of a really great salsa! ~Val

  5. Ooooh, that picture of the fading behind the hills is gorgeous. LOVE the bracelet and the earrings. Great colors and I really love the overlapping flaps of the bead caps on the house of the rising sun earrings. Now I'm humming the song. Thanks for that :)
