“The Dog Days of Summer mean outdoor bluegrass concerts in my part of the world. So with that in mind, I’ve created a banjo pendant using copper wire. The center of the banjo is a hand-sculpted polymer clay Galax Leaf, which my city is named after.”

“Biking in the coolness of the mountains is refreshing on the warm dog days of summer. “Mountain Biker Girl” is the name of this bracelet which uses bicycle chain for its structure. A wire-wrapped and beaded trillion donut of Picture Jasper stone creates part of the clasp which is the focal point of the bracelet. A peyote beaded bar forms the other half of the clasp. The earth tones in the beads complement the mountain “pictures” seen in the Jasper donut as well as the copper wire of the wrapping.”

“These “Dog Days” are so hot  that I created a ‘heat sink’ bracelet to dissipate some of the heat  –  using my new Wubbers Designer Mandrels and some 20 gauge copper wire.

The 20 gauge wire is very elegant and light weight, and it actually does work!”
