breast cancer SURVIVORS ... Celebration

October is
Breast Cancer Awareness

Title: Pink Tears

"Memories" ~ Within Temptation

(Press PLAY while you visit here today)

Together in all these memories,
I see your smile.
All of the memories I hold dear.
Darling you know I'll love you,
Till the end of time.
All of my memories keep you near
In silent moments,
Imagining you here.
All of my memories keep you near,
In silent whispers, silent tears.

Title: Pink Confetti - a celebration of recoveryAvailable in my etsy shop here

Memories of growing up along the shore of Lake Erie ... my memories... perhaps you have some too. Vacations, times of solitude, picnics, simple play along the water's edge...For me it was and is always a hunt... the perfect piece of driftwood... smooth rocks to paint... and that elusive treasure called "beachglass". Early last fall while my Dad was still with us I found several pieces of glass I have since turned into pendants... Look around my shop for the various ways I have presented them. I hope you enjoy each and every one. May they bless your eyes and all who behold you,

Title: Rejoice

Who Knows How Long I've Loved You ...

" Love you forever and forever,
Love you with all my heart;
Love you whenever we're together,
Love you when we´re apart. "

"I Will" ~ The Beatles


Charmed, I’m sure…”

(a new series)

Introducing a new series (otherwise known, in my case, as a rabbit trail) - of charmed jewelry. These necklaces are assemblages of found pieces and what-nots - mostly 'new', but sometimes 'old' mixed in as well.

I always wanted a charm bracelet as a little girl so now I find myself making charm necklaces - ala a little more luxurious :) The various price ranges within the series reflects the varying ingredients, weight, time, and aesthetic. I use new and vintage pieces, but be assured the pieces are silver plated, gold plated, non-lead, and even non-nickel. If, however, you have metal allergies and require pure, precious metals be cautious of these please. I often treat the pieces with stained glass solvents to add patina and age. They are endearing!

I hope you enjoy each and every one.

May they bless your eyes and all who behold you.

THINKING AHEAD: Christmas Goodies NOW

Michael W. Smith - Christmastime


I have wrestled with whether or not I will be doing “live” art festivals in the upcoming months. Historically they have been a great boon for me, and I would expect success this year as well - but I will be blunt -- after just barely crawling out of a six-week illness (bronchitis, not the flu) I am not at all certain I can face sick buyers and germs “out there”...especially during a pandemic.

It is with this in mind (along with the great gas savings you could enjoy and the bonus of avoiding any crowd wrangling in chain stores and big box stores) I have decided that I will be holding my own OnLine Art Festivals this autumn… right in my shop.

I will be loading my Etsy Shop with all manner of gift giving goodness! Be patient - I have tons of yummy things… original paintings, greeting cards, painted wood, folk art driftwood, altered jewelry, assemblage art dolls to wear, brooches, necklaces, pendants … and that is just at blueyeduckstudios

Visit my son's shop - driftstudios - and you will find a different array of gifts for the ‘impossible to buy for person’ in your life: fabulous fine art photography!

Over at duckpuddle (my shop with Grandma) you can find whimsy to wear and luxurious hand made scarves!

So, hold on tight ... I will be featuring items from all three shops here over the next three months…

Please come back often - and visit our family of Etsy Shops...
