‘Tis the Season for Arts Offerings

Hi there everybody!

I have not posted in a very long time. I have been busy making jewelry and adding to my arts offerings by expanding my photography business (Ardea Blue Photography)

I am now in the midst of the pre holiday season Blitz!

I am doing a combination of jewelry shows and photography exhibits, which you cab see by looking at my upcoming events side bar.

My latest jewelry forays include LOTS of bracelets and Necklaces, as you can see below:

I love this beautiful etched Czech glass Tila bead. I accented it with purple glass pearls and seed beads. SO pretty!


I Also fell in love with these new Z shaped beads, but could only find them in this unusual color. Luckily, I had some matching Tila beads to go with it:

Like these for example:


In between all these projects, I did a lot of traveling and took a lot of pictures. My love of nature has always inspired my jewelry, especially in regards to color and shape.  You can see how my artistic endeavors intertwine in the following photographs:

Come on out and see my jewelry in December and my photography as well in Nov and December!
