The first photo is an American Indian Tribute painting, "Warrior Tears" done by Cathy Minerva in encaustics. I fell in love with all her paintings done in this medium, and someday I'm gonna be the owner of one.
The second is a little ATC done in this same medium. I was totally blown away especially because it's Cathy's first encaustic ATC ever done...and I own it!!! heheeh!!!
Thank you Patti Koosed for partnering Cathy and I up in your Blog's Valentine Swap.
Thanks you Cathy for this awesome little treasure!!!

I usually use Sterling Silver to make my handcrafted/handwired/beaded jewelry, but discovered several sizes of copper that I'd purchased when I first got involved with this venture!!! That was over 2 yrs ago...hehehe I thought I'd show you some of what I've designed this week and have to tell ya it was fun...didn't think I liked copper, but I do...please note I'm quite the novice at creating handwired bracelets...

A little about me!
Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren. My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry. On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs. Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
