3 Little Spirit Gourd Necklaces
I just finished 3 more little gourd necklaces. I put a quarter to show the size. Each one seems to have it's own personality, adding beads or pearls. Sometimes I just have to giggle as silly thoughts run through my head. I feel them saying, " I want that Bead, or don't put that one on me!". It is hard to part with them. But am delighted when people want to purchase my little creations. ..
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
