Look what you can make when you've got a lot of garbage lying around in your yard! And I wanted that stuff cleaned up....
I believe this was constructed utilizing walnuts, dirty feathers, and a rotten racoon chewed hank of sponge. Email me for Jewel's tutorial...

Silver Leaf! My family and I vended at the Silver Leaf Renaissance Faire again this year and the picture above is of my favorite patron. A beautifully voluptuous woman in a bridal gown with a sign that read; "Taking Applications for Husband, Must have Own Kingdom". I love her!!!!
We had a wonderful time. It was beautiful, sweaty, difficult, interesting, exciting, and stressful. And all of it was in our minds. What a trip! I so highly recommend involving children in the affairs of the world. The kids had a fascinating experience where they learned once again, about the exchange of money and the myriad of stories that play out from that.
I sold beautiful silk skirts this year, and I so loved seeing them blow in the breeze. I had envisioned these colorful skirts waving their silky threads in a warm summer breeze while women snatched them up...and that is indeed what manifested. I will be selling these soon on my new retail site at The Untamed Mare. I'm so excited!
Thank you to everyone who graced me with their presence this year. I love you all and am so grateful to have you in my life. Megan, thank you especially, for your support and love and help! You were invaluable to me and my children and I love you so much! I hope the jewels I create for you will be magical and blessed!
See some pictures here!
