Sunsets, Mountains, Beautiful Fall Colors

I am having a lot of fun with black silhouette glass decals. They are fused into the glass. I love how they give depth to a piece. They required several firings in the kiln to get the landscape effect I was going for. These are my new creations. It makes me want to take a hike in the mountains. Fall colors are sooooooooo beautiful! I know I will be creating a lot more silhouettes with the dichroic glass. I am not a great photographer. They look amazing in person.

Pumpkins, Spiders, Oh My!

Halloween is approaching. I have started making some pendants in that theme. They are so much fun to make! You can find my jewelry on Etsy (see shop information below).

My entry to the CGGE Contest

Title: Kauai, Hawaii
Artist: Yvonne
This is where my hubby and I went for our 1st vacation without kids in over 10 years. It was the most beautiful and romantic spot. I thought it was perfect for the summer challenge because it was a summer vacation that I will always remember.

This is my entry to the August Summer Challenge

Dreaming Of Fall

"There is nothing quite like a fall day.
The cool crisp air, pumpkins in the fields,
and playing in the leaves.
The smile on your face can warm a chilly day."
Author: unknown

My new listing on Etsy is the Pumpkin Pendant & Earrings Set.
It has me dreaming of fall. I love fall. I miss experiencing it in Upstate NY (where I grew up). While it cools off here, we do not have the gorgeous fall colors. I miss going to the apple cider mill, eating freshly made donuts and drinking hot apple cider. The fall leaves are such a thing of beauty.
Don't get me wrong, I truly love living in Florida. I love seeing the sun shine every day. I love wearing one wardrobe year round, as opposed to seasonal clothing. I love the tropical climate.
It is just fall that I miss. I guess, I should start going North in the fall. We vacation every October. Funny how our vacations are always centered around even warmer climates than ours (Caribbean, Hawaii, etc). My hubby is a Florida boy and he is not fond of the cold. I may break him of that some day. LOL. We have been married 15 years and I have not managed that yet.
Well enough rambling, I have more glass to create....

Good Deed

On Etsy's community thread I came across a blogger that is doing a monthly good deed. This month she is collecting items to send to a child with cancer. You can see her story here

I wanted to take part so I created some jewelry for Abbie.
I think "Hope" is the perfect theme for anyone going through such a difficult disease.

If you would like to take part in this excellent good deed, you can find information here:
