Art Diva Night

I've been lucky enough to be included in an art group which meets once each month at my local library! The head art diva is the talented Joanna Lewis of We each bring whatever we want to work on and visit, share ideas etc. while we work. In addition we each bring a snack to munch on. I decided to make St. Patrick's Day Cupcakes, since I had seen this idea quite a while ago and always wanted to try it. Being the cupcake fanatic that I am, this was a perfect choice.

I brought coasters made from ceramic tiles to work on since I have been in kind of a slump when it comes to jewelry making. Joanna was working on the most beautiful necklace which she made from vintage jewelry pieces. She was also wearing another one that she created the same way. They were breathtaking! She really inspired me. So I came home and started looking around to see what I have that might work for a necklace like hers. I ended up buying some vintage earrings which I have been able to use as pendants and rings. Here are a couple of pictures of what I've made so far.


  1. Your necklace is beautiful & your cupcakes were delicious! Good to see a post from you Cara...see ya in the group tonight!

    Oh, & I am sooo stealing the idea of a vintage earring glued to a ring base! And the bobbles too! ;o)

  2. Thank you Cami! I have to figure out how to get my comments to show on my blog. I just found your comment today!
