2010

2010

Due to problems with my fibromyalgia, loss of a quiet safe area to create, and the stress caused by both, I've switched to ceramics. The slower pace and delicious tactile quality of the clay well makes up for this! These are my latests pieces! :D

Asian Inspired Beads

Asian Inspired Beads

I've been experimenting with Asian themed beads this week. Gelly, Nikki (NLC), and I have been working on different themes each week. This week is our Asian week. I loved creating these pieces!

Big Cat Masks

Big Cat Masks

I love masks, and adore making faces out of beads. I also adore cats in all shapes and sizes. I wanted a fun, artsy way of creating a "mask" or face of a big cat.

Birds

Birds

I can't believe I don't have a "gallery" just for birds...I make a lot of them.....there is always something magical about a creature with wings....wish I had them!

Corset Kates

Corset Kates

I was making a goddess bead the other day and suddenly she became so modest! Well, a little modest. I had such a good time letting my inner fashionista come out to play!

Dragonflies

Dragonflies

Dragonflies are always mysterious with their shiny iridescent colors and large eyes. I think they look especially beautiful next to richly colored flowers.

Dragons

Dragons

It has taken me quite awhile to where I feel good about my dragon beads....my first was such a sad, creepy sight!

Floral Landscapes

Floral Landscapes

Did I say I love to make landscapes? Well, what I really love is to try to create a multi-dimensional design...with raised florals in the foreground.

Folk Art Cats

Folk Art Cats

Cats and I have always been on the same wave length. They totally get me and I totally get them. It is only natural that they are some of my greatest inspirations!

I felt my green meadows were missing something and then it dawned on me...SHEEP!

Impressionistic Landscapes

Impressionistic Landscapes

As it may be evident, I love landscapes...AND trees! Wouldn't you know that I also love Impressionist paintings? These are my own kind of hommage to the Impressionistic greats such as Monet, Manet, and Van Gogh....the thing is...these beads had no actual painting involved!

Jellyfish

Jellyfish

I really love creating raised scenes on my beads. I love to have a design that you can touch and feel each of the parts. I used to encase these, but I get so much satisfaction when I make them this way!

Making Faces

Making Faces

I've always been fascinated with faces...drawing, sculpting, whatever! I love these and have some ideas for incorportating them into "art dolls".

These are some of my favorites to make! I try really hard to create a realistic ocean and shore.

Spring is here and the urge to make flowers is upon me!

Octopi

Octopi

I kind of fell upon these in an attempt to make a very imaginative bead with the flavor of the sea but without the realism. I made swirling scrolling designs and then decided to add dots, and what did I see, but the tentacles of an octopus? So much for abstract, but I still like them just as much!

Reptiles and Amphibians

Reptiles and Amphibians

Some thought I was kind of a scary little girl...I was always picking up some lizard, frog, or SNAKE! Perched upon a glass bead they becoming suddenly socially acceptable and they are surely addictive!

Sea Life

Sea Life

In the beginning, my first beads that I was very proud of, were my encased jellyfish beads. Being a Pisces, I seem to be naturally drawn to the sea. These are my newest additions in my sea creature "family". I am combining my love of landscapes with my love for animals.....

Sets 2007

Sets 2007

I do not make many sets because I get kind of tired of making the same basic bead over and over, but I've learned you don't have to do that to make a nice set. So here are the ones I've made this year!

Tidal Pools

Tidal Pools

I always seem to be going back to my favorite ocean themes. This time I'm focusing on tidal pools. Little pools of trapped ocean full of hidden life.

Trees

Trees

I am so in love with trees! I have always felt this way. Later, I discovered that my maiden name is actually derived from the Gaelic
"Darragh" which means "oak"...it was only fate that I should make trees!

Turtles

Turtles

I don't know why it took me so long to really get into making turtles. Here I have jeweled turtles and totem turtles...very enjoyable to make and it is always nice to find a new use for a lentil!

Twisted Whiskers!

Twisted Whiskers!

My cats have been evolving! I have wanted to put whiskers on my cats since I started making them, but couldn't get consitent results. The other day when rummaging through my "stuff" I found a spool of niochrome high temperature wire...BINGO! It is applied into the cheeks while hot. Any loose pieces are secured with two part expoxy resin. These guys have a lot of character. I can't wait to make more!!!

Water Gardens

Water Gardens

There is a certain look that you get with clear glass and swirling frit that always makes me think of looking into water. Everytime I do it, that is the thought that goes through my mind so I decided that this time I would embrace it.

Thank you for visiting my gallery. All of these pieces have been sold, but you may view my current items for sale here: alddesigns.etsy.com I've recently made the jump over to ceramics because it became impossible for me to work on lampworking.
