Here is our official invitation for the Salon this Sunday, by artist Bea Lombard, who will have a table full of lovely wares, much of it elegant paper goods. Also there will be Carleen Lopez (fabric bags, pillows, baby dresses from vintage fabric), Diane Glenn (her famous surprise balls plus altered vintage necklaces and other small treasures), Marie Baron (intricate beaded jewelry plus a new line of clothes based on 19th C finery) and Phoenix Forrester with vintage clothing and accessories. If you are in Albuquerque, do come by. If you're returning guests to the airport, we're essentially on the way!
The last few items I've ready for my display corner are:
Necklace #165, playing with some printed cotton knot buttons and loops, adding vintage metal buttons (that center one was a gift from a friend visiting Morocco) and then accenting with some dyed coral beads. It's on the woven Japanese bias tape. Long ago a friend made some lovely stoneware blue and white bowls that she dubbed the "fake folk art bowls." This is sort of a "fake folk art necklace," with a vague ethnic look.
Necklace #166. At a quilt shop in Taos I couldn't resist the little glass stuffed-animal eyes, here mixed with some vintage glass and brass buttons and put on Japanese chirimen polyester bias tape.
Necklace #167. Celluloid pearl buttons with little rhinestone accents on Japanese chirimen polyester bias tape. The necklace reminds me of something I might have had as a little girl in the 1950s.
As always, my little photo album of recent work is at https://goo.gl/photos/uJFB3VUDePMFPEbk9,
May your Thanksgiving be peaceful and lovely!
