Well, here is the first of my new Owl friends......
Our names are Jazz and Jazzy. We are a pair of wee little Elf Owls. We are looking for a new home. Thanks to Katofmanycolors, who just couldn’t resist us, we found our way here. Jazzy and I would love to take a trip to your home. All that we require is a nice jewelry box to nest in and little trips out with you into your world! No food required….LOL! Katofmanycolors hopes to introduce you to few of our cousins in the near future so do keep an eye out!

I really, really love these! The idea for this pair of earrings had been in my head for about a year I think. I probably looked at purchasing these beautiful beads about once a week! No two of these beads are exactly alike so each earring will be just a wee bit unique! I was finally able to make my purchase and create these beauties for you! Yes!....with fist shot up in the air!

Finished another Czech piece! The larger stone is a Czech Button Glass Cabochon. The round stone above is gorgeous.....a beautiful Art Glass stone that is so unusual. The colors are bursting out here!
We had snow today and then rain. It is so very messy out. I am working on a dragonfly earring design that I have wanted to do forever. They should be done soon.

I am getting ready to list these on Ebay (Katofmanycolors) where I sell my Saphiret Glass designs. These are the last of the stones exactly like this that I have....sigh. They had some minor chipping/flaws so I decided to turn the stones around and set them in a vintage brass piece. Now they are a wearable and beautiful piece of art!
Just listed these beauties today on Etsy! Just Love Them!!!! Beautiful and colorful vintage Linde Star glass stones and pink "flawed' vintage glass stones. They have white streaks in them to imitate the look of quartz.
The pink stones are wrapped and cradled in a vintage brass filigree. Very femi and colorful!

I have been designing today with some Czech glass pieces that I have. Glorious colors! I am waiting for some more filigree brass to arrive so that I can continue on.....so many, many ideas in my head right now! I hope to have some sunshine tomorrow so that I can get outside to take some pictures in natural light. Please, please mother nature, won't you please cooperate with me!
