New Soap Dishes - Recycled Bottle Bottoms

Check out these cute little soap dishes made with the bottom part of a wine bottle. Creating with recycled bottle glass is one of my favorite things! I love the idea of taking an item that is otherwise seen as a piece of refuse and turn into a practical and beautiful item. These recycled wine bottle bottoms are awesome! Each one is different according to the designs on the bottom of the bottles. These little dishes can also be used to display your favorite candle or use these little beautiful to hold your rings, or your favorite collection of beach glass or beach stones. There are so many applications for these. Click here to see more info. Go to my etsy shop here.

New Victorian Antiqued Sterling Silver Spoon Earrings

I just added a pair of beautiful, antiqued, Victorian style spoon earrings in quality, .925 sterling silver.  I handmade the ear wires in sterling silver as well. 

What I love about these earrings is the fact that they're somewhat long with awesome Victorian elegance.  I used the handle part of the spoon to create these beauties.  I wanted to add a unique look to them and so I very lightly hammered the center part of each one to create an icy effect, which turned out to be very cool.  I love to mix up different styles to create something surprisingly new.  Click here to see even more information on spoon and fork jewelry.  Click here to see cool thumb rings made of recycled, silver spoons.

New Tuscan Cheese Dish Plate with Red Grapes Handmade in New Brunswick

Here is my latest cheese plate, Tuscan Style with red grapes and cheese done in a grafiti technique, which is just a fancy word for painting and scratching the paint off.  What is really awesome with this cheese tray is that the paint turns into glass once I'm finished with the tray, so you don't need to worry about the paint scratching off getting damaged.  You can even stick it in the dishwasher.  For more information, click here and go to my etsy shop.
