Show Me the New Stuff!
This blog is RSS and feeds to my mailing list each time I post new items
Beautiful sunny day, albeit a little chilly (-10 C) before the snow returns tomorrow. Oh joy! But it won't last long now, the warm days are nearly here and I can't wait!
I made some new items this week using pearls; some earrings and a bracelet. I'm also placing a lot more items into Maple Grove Arts Center boutique so that if you are local you can go and see those items. I also hope to be soon hosting some trunk shows, so keep reading this space!
Enjoy St Patrick's Day and see you next week - Lise
March already! How time flies when you are having fun! The winter has flown by and now I can see spring coming! It's time to look at your wardrobe and decide on your spring time fashions.
Pantone Color Institute forecasts upcoming season colors and there are some gorgeous colors coming our way!
I've been making jewelry this week and last and a few of my newest earrings are focused on the "hazelnut" color, GF376 & SS483. "Niagara" is showcased in earrings SS481 & GF373
I've also just finished this amazing new necklace that plays on "Hazelnut" and "Flame" by using a Carnelian stone
It's time for the St Patrick's Day Sale - 25% off all GREEN or hint of green items - use code PATTY17 at checkout.
See you all next week - Lise
Nearing the end of a very busy week, completing year end tasks and planning for 2017 shows and events.
Here are some new items
Still a few items left in my sale, so take a deep breath and go section diving! It's fun! You never know what you may find for yourself or someone else!
See you next time - Lise
Wow, it's cold outside and shoveling snow is horrible, funny how you sort of forget from year to year. Maybe nature's way of getting us through the winter. I'm trying to embrace it, but it's tough, I'd rather stay in and make stuff!
Here are some new items
Also don't forget the sale on lots of items and also the items on display in Maple Grove Arts Center.
See you next week - Lise
Happy New Year to you all, hope that all is fine with you right now. Everything is good with me and Andy, just plodding along and trying to do much in too little time, welcome to modern life!
Today, I placed 30 or so items for sale in Maple Grove Arts Center, in the boutique. You can go down there, 11666 Fountains Drive, Maple Grove, and check all the items out in the boutique area. Just call first, 763 370 3003, to confirm opening hours. We are still appealing for volunteers and sorting out schedules, so it's random right now. I do donate 25% of the purchase price to the Center, so you'd be helping two entities at once!
Anyway here is a peek of what items are down there!
There are still a lot of items available online and still worth a look as many are still on sale.
Thanks - see you next week - Lise
It's here, well almost, 2017.
2016 was a tough one through and through, I'm hoping for a better 2017. I have lots of ideas bubbling and waiting to get out and show themselves to you!
In the meantime, there is a sale going on, items are marked down in various sections, so scroll thru the pages and find a gift for yourself! New Years is a self-adornment event!
See you next week, I'm off to party.... Lise
Hope your Thanksgiving was fun and happy with family and friends, next stop is Christmas Day. If you want to grab a gift from my shop for someone, my last day for posting in the US will be Saturday December 17th 2016 for regular mail. I can still do Priority mail until December 20th 2016. After that it's gift cards only as they are via email. I'm sorry but overseas is already passed us by, but again gift cards can work!

So, it's finally happened, I've reached a half century.... I've done so much and had a lot of fun along the way. I've traveled a lot of the world, lived in Europe and United States, worked for 17 years in London, am running my own small design company and also helping to keep Maple Grove Arts Center alive. So looking back, it's not so bad.... still feeling pretty fit and able, lots of friends and laughter. The best part though is being with my best friend, Andy!
So wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving and many more to come. - Lise

Vintage metal rings studded with lilac and purple crystals. to which I added an amethyst Swarovski crystal bicone and sterling silver oval beads.
These are 2" or 5 cm drops on sterling silver posts.
Not much to report this week I'm afraid, transitioning from summer to fall, is time consuming. The weather feels like it is changing and the leaves are turning those gorgeous shades of reds and golds.
Wayzata was a mixed affair this year, it was sunny but ever so breezy, which makes it hard, I was lucky and nothing fell, but that was more by luck than anything. A few tents flew on Sunday afternoon on the lake side.
Next year, I'm planning on different venues, doubt I will be in Wayzata for that event again, so keep watching the main page for new venues that appear as I book them into my schedule. I also will not be at Maple Grove Community Center any more for various reasons.
So this week I have a necklace on my weekly special promo - Gooseberry! - It is normally $70 - but place in your basket tonight and get for only $45 with code SPECIAL at checkout.
All jade beads in this pretty necklace. The stones are all basically a pale lime with a random white streaking. The beads up the sides are 10 mm puffy lentils and the pendant is a carved rectangle with a hole detail.
I added the Tierra Cast oval links in a plated gold finish and they match the bail on the pendant. The chain is a simple gold plated oval linkage.
The length is 23" or 58 cm long with a simple gold plated toggle, The pendant is an additional 1" or 2 1/2 cm drop.
Enjoy the remainder of your weekend and see you next week - Lise
Good evening! I've just got back from the Day One of James J Hill Days! Was a fun day and if you got out to see me, thank you so much for taking the time. I've still got tomorrow and the parade will be great as ever...
As usual I'm writing this in advance of the fair, so here are some items that I've made this week and will be at the Show.
I suspect that all my tenses are mixed up, I never claimed to be a Time Lord (for Doctor Who fans).
See you next week - Lise
Next weekend is James J Hill Days in Wayzata - hope to see you there! Keep keeping forecast, it shows fine and sunny so far, keep your fibers crossed.
I'm booth 44 near Ben & Jerry's on Lake Street - come and find me!
I'm still making new items and going through some of the older items before the fair... lots to do!
