French Bee, Rob Thomas & Thriller??

I have to start off by saying the I had the most fabulous time at the Rob Thomas concert at the Fox theater in St. Louis on Halloween!! The best. Most of you who follow the blog know my all time favorite band is Matchbox 20. I love Rob's voice and song writing! If you don't live in St. Louis and have never visited the Fox Theater it's one of the most beautiful theaters around. Built in 1929 it was reportedly the second largest theater in the United States.

The ornate interier is like nothing I have ever seen. After years of being closed the Fox theater was restored for 3 million dollars in 1982 it reopened as splendid as ever.

All of these photos curtosy of www.fabulousfox.com
You can find more photos under history at that link also!

Now on to the Rob Thomas concert! First I need to digress just a bit. To the girls that were on the mezzanine balcony that do not understand the meaning of rude...YES talking the whole time someone is playing music even if they are not the lead band is annoying. YES standing up in front of people that paid good money to sit is rude. YES texting through the whole concert is annoying and rude! YES running back and forth back and forth to the lobby during the show is RUDE! So the guy that yelled at you to sit down and you acted so shocked, believe it or not had a right to tell you to sit down! The world is not all about you princess. Okay...I feel so much better. They were not in front of us, actually next to us and it still surprises me how rude some people can be. Not caring for anyone but them selves...Okay really I'm letting it go lol. Rob Thomas opened his show in a Michael Jackson halloween costume singing thriller!!

Thank you to FairiesRreal91 for posting your video on you tube!

Yesterday I decided to watch "The Dutchess" a movie th
at for some reason I bought a while back and have never watched. I really enjoyed the movie and was reminded again how far us women have come. I really think she should have junk punched the husband like in What Happens in Vegas and said You KNOW why! LOL....okay getting off track again...so the movie inspired another Bee Paris Pendant...enjoy! Available on ebay tonight.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! xo Michele

Fortune Teller

I love love this fortune teller pendant! Must be the favorite one I've done so far! I've been seeing a lot of gypsy caravan type of stuff lately and this little lady has been in my head for some time. I think she came out perfect! I hand sculpted and painted the crystal ball base and her head wrap. The crystal ball is glass I fused with tiny silver stars in it. She's available on ebay tonight at 8 pm. xo Michele

New Work

Just wanted to drop in and say, I'm still alive ;o) had oral surgery on Friday, and lived to tell about it. Not fun. Not fun at all. The bummer part is evidentally my heart rate, while asleep was at 160. Yikes! So that of course means I get to visit yet another doctor. sigh. Passing 40 is hell. Anyway, I'm trying not to take the vicadin lol so that I could be coherent enough to list a few things and check in with you all! But if you don't hear from me for a couple of days, at least you know what's going on! I'll leave you all with the newest eye candy ;o) All is available and on ebay! xo Michele

Another Dragon and Angel!

Okay so since the other dragon sold within minutes of me putting her on ebay and the popularity of her, I made another one ;o) Love how this one came out too!! Hmmm...maybe I should just do a series of them! Here she is, same coloring as the other one but a different pose and different eye color ;o) Available on ebay tonight at 8 pm cental time:Then something a little different. Instead of my regular fused glass painted face, I used a vintage photograph under a clear domed cab, set in a silver tone bezzel. I have a large collection of vintage photographs so this gives me a chance to use them! Let me know what you all think about the 2 different styles and no worries I'm not stopping the painted ones ;o)
I'm off to cook dinner and then boy scouts is tonight. Oh and guess what...it's raining. I'm thinking I should finish the ark I started building in the spring. Have a great night everyone! xo Michele

I'm not sure what happened to Monday. I think it skipped me.Or I guess it could have been the post its. Either way, I never saw it.

I did however manage to get a few things done! I've been very productive here in my little dungeon..er...studio. I managed to get a new steampunk scarecrow done which you can wear as a pin or a necklace! Love her! She will be on ebay tonight And then I finally got a few fused glass pendants done! I listed both on ebay already today, with a buy it now feature. Actually even the scarecrow has a buy it now feature. As a buyer I always look for that. It's not because I don't want to duke it out with another ebayer and possibly get a great deal. It's because, I'm impatient. Pure and simple. Why wait a week when I can get it today? I mean when they come out with the transporter that hooks to your computer so that as soon as I buy something on ebay ZAP it transports into my house, I will be a happy camper. Just don't buy anything really really big

Okay I think I got off topic a bit here...so the fused glass pendants...

Candy corn moon. I love the artglass that I fused into the pendant as the moon. Looks like candy corn to me! I also added a few swarovski crystals for the twinkling stars :o)
Then this little soulful looking gypsy, her crystal ball is dichroic glass that has tiny silver stars in it...hard to see from this picture I think. Glass is the hardest thing to photograph!

I also have a Halloween queeny witch, but a girl can't show it all at once! I'll post her tomorrow. Have a great night everyone! xo Michele

Eco-Inspiration Ave Challenge

The wonderful group I belong to Inspiration Ave has a weekly challenge, based on a word or theme from one of our creative members. Each week has been something fun and challenging. I've been slacking (head hangs in shame). I really wasn't sure what the rules were, and this is what I've looked like lately. A chicken running around without it's head!
Anyway this week I decided to man-up or woman-up as the case may be and try to get it together! So the word for this week is Eco from our lovely Luthien.

When I think of the word eco I think of reuse or recycle. Since with my steampunk jewelry I always try to recyle or reuse things I thought my artwork fits right in :o) Here's a new witch that I'm listing on ebay tonight. She has both recyled vintage and new parts.

Take the time to take a peek at what all the other artists think the word eco means to them. The challenge is open to all artists with a blog, you do not have to belong to our group to join in the fun! The deadline is Sunday at 5 pm Est. Here is the link again to our blog Inspiration Avenue. xo Michele
