Jennifer is also working on "cupcake toppers"...these are smallish hand built stoneware pieces perfect for cupcake towers or cakes.
She prices them from $65-$100...

Her designs are daring in texture and fascinating in form; they are truly wearable art. She creates with vintage metal findings, jewelry pieces, found objects and the forgotten faces of the original photos she has collected for more than 30 years. Her works offer charming stories, fancifully adorned with words and images -- a testament to her love for words.
I am so thrilled that she has created a special body of work celebrating yesterday's toys for the event we're having this weekend (see us and these works on Sunday in Hackensack, NJ).
Dara is showing her one of kind creations (including some new bracelets, earrings and Christmas ornaments) at three show venues in the next few weeks. I hope you'll mark your calendar and attend to see her work in person...

If you are anywhere nearby, I urge you to make the drive...it's well worth several hours in the car....and my wonderful customer friend Rosanna from Italy is flying in to attend for the second time!
Don't miss it! Look for Earth Angels in Row "I"....we've got the big booth stuffed with wonderful handmade teddies, art dolls, holiday goodies (yes there will be decorated trees), jewelry and so much more...I'll be there with Cindy, Bob, Allie, Denny, Little Red and Nick...and hope you can stop by to introduce yourself and join the fun...
See you there! xxoo Jen

Stacey Bear has a fabulous personal style that comes to life her home. It's filled with her beloved collections of antiques, books, old toys, beaded baskets, sewing notions, and textiles...and her studio, where her artistry -- with it's dark rim or humor -- plays out in her paintings and her artwork she calls her "Momentos".
I have been remiss in not posting these images from my last trip to Stacey's ...so here they are.
Ro and I went down for another visit a few weeks back. Stacey, once again, our time with you was magic. Thanks for sharing your home, your heart and your talent. All of the above constantly inspires...
