Finished projects

That has a nice ring to it doesn't it?

Do you remember this little chest of drawers that I bought at a yard sale about a year ago? It sat on the front porch for a couple of months until the weather was really too wet and cold to work on it, so we moved it into the basement. I finally pulled it back outside a couple of weeks ago and sanded and painted it. I just moved it up to the guest room to replace the dresser that I gave to Emily a year ago. I think it is pretty cute. Want to come and visit me? Now there is a place for you to put your, uh, socks. You can also see my Amish wannabe quilt reflected in the mirror.

And here is my finished jewelry made with the silver pieces I created in the class I took last weekend. Hard to photograph. That's a pearl hanging on the end of the triangle. It's really pretty with a very slight pinkish cast to it, but it looks like nothing in the photo. You can see that I used the little squares that looked a bit like buttons to make a pair of earrings. They were made from the scraps that were left from the other pieces. Gerrie has a wonderful pair of earrings that I have admired (coveted) that have a silver square and a red bead. They were my inspiration for these.


  1. Beautifully crafted jewelry and one very cute dresser! I am doubly impressed!

    I love being an inspiration - my earrings, that is. I can't wait to see your new bling in person.

  4. Not being a jewelery person, I will comment on the dresser. *smile* I do remember you having it sitting on the porch, it was blue wasn't it? Looks good, but needs some color on the top, either fabric or paint...I mean look at all that space...a nice painted doily, maybe done in off whites, if you don't want it to busy looking.

  5. Those jewelry pieces are stunning, like you I love silver! That dresser is fantastic, really nice work on both pieces!

  6. I love the curve of that top part supporting the mirror.

    Also your silver jewelry ventures, but that goes without saying.
