Connected Glitter Glass Druzy Earrings


Here's a variation on the glitter glass earrings I introduced a few weeks ago.  These require a double piercing.  The chain from the ball stud hooks onto the back of the glitter glass earring.  These come as a set of four earrings, and only one pair connects.

You can find these in the shop.

Veal's Ice Tree


Veal's Ice Tree stands in the back yard of a private residence.  Parking is limited to about six vehicles at a time.

The "tree" is actually lumber, tree branches, and scrap metal. The ice is formed by a continuous spray from the neighboring pond when the temps are below freezing.

DIY Removable Peter Pan Collar


Sometimes you want to change the look of a shirt or dress for different occasions.  This removable peter pan collar might be the solution to your problem.



Before you start, measure your neck, or the neckline of your shirt/dress.

1.  You'll need a template, felt, scissors, needle, thread, measuring tape, chain, pliers, jump rings, and a lobster clasp.

2.  Trace the template onto a piece of felt and cut out the shape.

3.  Sew the chain about two inches in onto the top corner of one side of the felt.  Repeat on the other side.

4.  Use pliers to add the jump rings and clasp.
