Jewels from Jill

My friend Jill makes gorgeous creations using precious and semi-precious stones.

The silver and gold necklace is all hand made.

I think Jill should have her own blog don't you?

Great art from my studio

Painted by my beautiful grand-daughter Bella when she was two

Welcome to my Studio

I love to curl up on this day bed with my books and a cup of tea or just think about my next Art project.
Can't tell you how good it is to finally have a creative space.
