The Captured Muse

The Captured Muse I’ve been making art most of my life.I am inspired by unique, whimsical and fun objects combined with bold color, shape and pattern. Wear my jewelry and you will wear a big smile.

Life should be fun, and so should your jewelry.

After my stay in Kauai, I got the hula blues and I was inspired to make a whole line of jewelry. This one reminds me of an iconic Hawaiian shirt or muumuu pattern. When you wear it, I hope it makes you feel like you are on a white sandy beach!

I started making the Fish-Eating-Fish necklace a few years ago and it has always been my bestseller at shows. These guys even made the cover of one of the art show programs I was in! I make them in a variety of colors and patterns and they are sure to make you and others smile - and we all need that these days!

During this time of social isolation, I decided to put up some bird feeders - I went to the experts - For the Wild Birds in McLean, VA. This inspired me to make some enameled bird jewelry - I am very pleased to **ANNOUNCE** that they are now carrying my bird jewelry! Please visit them and they will help you with all things related to birds and other backyard friends!

As summer rolls in - I add to my fishing line a new school of colorful and fun fish earrings! This year was no exception! These earrings and necklaces are by far the most popular jewelry in my collection - I think
because they make people smile and make other people smile when they see you wearing them!

This carnelian stone is accented by a garnet - and it’s Monday - and I am grateful for another day to create in my jewelry studio! I placed some bird feeders outside my studio and enjoy watching the birds visit as I work. Who knows how they will inspire my work today!

Can’t wait to get back to Hawaii! This necklace will transport you - at least in your mind - instantly to sands under the whispering palm trees, with a cool drink in your hand - and the sound of the rhythmic ocean waves - better yet, set up a beach chair in your yard, on your balcony, or even in your living room, with this necklace around your neck (of course) and have an urban beach day! My Hula line of jewelry is kind of magical that way!
.

I also have earrings and bracelets to go with this theme in various colors.

Wow! This lockdown has really fired up my creativity! This necklace has quite a few elements combined into one. The focal stone is a cat’s eye, embellished with a beautiful garnet. The detail on the back plate is a whisper that finishes the piece.

Another special order for a bee fan! We need the honey bees now more than ever since the arrival of the murder hornet! Did you know that the honey bees ambush the hornet when it intrudes their hive? They surround it and beat their wings at an incredible speed creating heat and CO2 to kill the hornet! Now that’s team work! And unexpected gossip from an unexpected jewelry source!

Happy Friday to all and especially to all the hardworking and loving mothers!

It has been a busy week already! I am a high school art teacher, teaching jewelry and digital art - and I have been busy designing online jewelry courses for my students as we finish out the school year. Whew! How do you teach making jewelry to students who do not have tools and supplies? You think way outside the box! So, I have not been in my own studio this week - until now - in between classes!

Pietersite is characterized by an incredible chatoyancy and brilliance of life within the stone. Its dominant gold hues are contrasted with deep blue-black, grey and brown, as well as occasional clear areas.
