Just sharing some pictures from a recent trip to Longwood Gardens, new jewelry and my necklace that was published in Bead It Today Magazine.

Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA is a GORGEOUS garden about an hour from where I live in SE PA.  I was in my happy place photographing all of the amazing plants and flowers!

I recently had some of my images and digital art made into pendants and pocket mirrors. 
 Funny Face Necklace designed by me.  Funny face pendant by Diana Ptaszynski   Glass beads by Heather Boardman   I wire wrapped funny face's "hair" with copper wire and beads and strung the pendant and glass beads on red suede.  This is my new favorite necklace. 

I had so much fun making these earrings.  Glass beads are by Heather Boardman and the polymer charms are by Staci Smith.  Wire is from Patina Queen.  

 I am in the June issue of Bead it Today Magazine.  My piece is called Filled with Memories. It is a resin piece with watch parts, a watch face, digital images from Lisa's Altered Art and vintage buttons strung on shoe string leather.  The full instructions on how to make my necklace are in this issue. The magazine is available at craft and book stores as well as online. It's a fun little magazine with beginner and advanced beginner projects.  Go check it out!!

Thanks for taking a peek.  TTFN - TA TA for now.  xoxo ~~Linda
