As promised, my new suncatcher designs. Chris and I have been doing more collaborative pieces. People tease me that I have a bead maker and don't use his beads in my jewelry. The response to that is most of his beads sell themselves and I do my own thing. It is fun to work together on designs though. Wish the pictures weren't so dark and that you had sun sparkling through those huge crystals on the bottom of each suncatcher!
In other news, new jewelry is being produced at an amazing rate! We have a month of back to back shows, so I am a crazy jewelry making woman! Chris has even gotten into the act, working up some designs to sell and some designs for himself. We drafted our beautiful daughter, Mina, as our jewelry model!
