More Art from the Fire!

I had a chuckle last night when I was working with these photographs.  It seemed as though nearly every name I came up with was reminiscent of good times.  Like "Dusty Springfield,"  I mean, really!  And, the letter pendants ... all I could think about was Sesame Street.  By the time I got to "Festivus," I nearly roared in laughter!  Some of you Seinfeld fans will remember that one.  Actually, Wikipedia has a pretty good entry on it.

I'll be listing these at my website, plus I have some other neat pendants that are like the Dandelion earrings.  They are enamel pendants with images of antique dress forms, vintage Underwood typewriters, 1935 deodorant commercials ... yes you heard me right!  I'm still laughing!

looks like you had a world of fun in the studio - and everything looks beautiful! we haven't really seen any intensive jewelry since before the book - makes me wonder if some of these thoughts have cousins in the pages... and if so, wow!

I am absolutely enchanted by all of them! Wonderful work, Barbara, truly wonderful. There is a spirit of joy and playfulness about all of them.

Fun names! We had a festivus once, but there really was no airing of grievances. LOL! Love all of them and ring around the rosy is my favorite.

Barbara, I just love your jewelry and humor all mixed together! :-) What stunning new pieces....hard to pick a favorite, I am so impressed by them all! I especially love the "letter S" pendant - must be those girly pink colors!

Thank you all for visiting my blog today and for saying such nice things about my work. I feel like it's a "coming out" party ... it's been so long since I've posted some real live work! Thank you, thank you ... your comments mean so much to me.
