Digital Downloads

Just a few of the instant Digital Downloads in my Etsy shop for only $5 each.  Once you download one you can print the image at home from your computer and printer, or you can take it to your local printer, or you can use any of the  photo printing services on the internet to print the image on cards, canvas, tote bags, pillows - whatever you like.  Images are high resolution, printable sizes from 5”x7”to at least 16”x20”.  You could spend a lot of time designing something like these on your home computer, but I mean … these are only $5 - period.

Windows On The Square - Limited Time Offer

For a limited time I am offering a great discount on many of the images from my Windows On The Square series.   I will be retiring some of these images in the near future, so this is a good way to save money on your favorite prints before they go away.

Windows On The Square  is a series of photographs of downtown Paris, Tennessee which I started in the Summer of 2007.   I was inspired by all the beautiful, historic two story buildings with fancy brick work and windows that look down on court house square.  Thus the title Windows On The Square. The series has a unique ethereal “look” which was applied to each photograph, creating a cohesive series of images.   Since making these photographs,  several business have changed hands, changed names and building fronts.  

There are two ways you can take advantage of these discounts.
  • You can order fine art prints for as little as $17 from my online gallery here. You can also order note cards, canvas prints and even tote bags or pillows.
  • Or, you can purchase a digital download for $5 from my Etsy Shop located here and do your own prints, note cards, etc.  You can print as many as you like for the one time fee of $5.  You just can't sell the prints, cards, etc.  That would be violating my copyright.  
Happy Shopping!

Paper Jewelry In My Etsy Shop

I re-opened my Etsy shop this summer and have slowly but surely been adding inventory to it.

For those of you who have been buying my jewelry at T.F. Rice & Co - never fear, they will continue to carry my jewelry.  As a matter of fact, if you see something in my online shop that you would prefer to buy at T.F. Rice & Co., or vice versa, just let me know.

This week I have been uploading paper jewelry.  (This is really time consuming.) Over the next few days, I'll be uploading clay jewelry.   I have lots of ideas for new pieces - just have to find the time to make them.

About my paper jewelry ….

As an artist I have always worked with high quality paper - artists and watercolor papers, papers used for fine art prints and papers used for displays.  And I would always have pieces left over.  I hesitate to call these left over pieces “scraps” because  they are really quite beautiful forms of paper - archival, acid free, cotton rag and other fibers, some handmade papers - beautiful even in their natural, unpainted or uncolored state.

In the interest of being ecologically friendly I started  experimenting with paper.  Paper has been used in  jewelry for over 2000 years.  So it’s not a new idea, just a new look.

Paper is extremely versatile.  There’s no end to it’s shapes and colors and it’s very lightweight.  If you are afraid to wear big bold earrings because of the weight - think paper.  It’s light as a feather.  And all my paper pieces are sealed to make them water resistant (not water proof).  With a little care paper jewelry will last for many, many years.

I hand paint and draw my own designs onto these various forms of paper.  Then I combine this artwork with diverse materials including metal, wood,  glass and crystal beads.  When I have recyclable materials such as old or broken jewelry or buttons I like to include them whenever possible. I create each piece of jewelry myself with an eye for color, shape and texture.

By carefully mixing colors, shapes and textures, I try to create distinctive and unique jewelry.     Although some pieces may look similar, no two pieces are exactly alike.  My jewelry is not mass produced.  Each piece is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art.  However ... if you see a piece of my jewelry that you really like and it has already sold, please email me.  I might be able to make you something that is similar - maybe the same colors or some of the same features.

And as always, I happy to read your comments or suggestions.

Recycling Watercolor Paper Into Earrings

I love it when I get to make something so pretty out of mistakes and scraps.  All of these earrings were made from watercolor paper.  If you like to wear big, dangly earrings but don't because they are too heavy - this is what you need. You won't believe how light they are.  

No two pairs are exactly alike.  Painted by hand, by me.  Sealed to make them water resistant.

Just a little preview of new earrings I'll be taking over to T.F. Rice & Co. later this week.  Come on down and check them out!

Each piece is a little masterpiece!

In The Works

What I'm working on today.

Feather light earrings.  Those big round ones at the bottom are 2 1/4 inches across - really big, but feather light. I'll post another photo when they are finished.
