Whew!!! I finally finished my radiation treatments on Friday. I am truely blessed because the worse side effect I've had is the burning in my throat area and a degree of fatigue. I was able to drive myself the entire time so that was good. Back to my art room tomorrow to work on jewelry. A blessed week to all.

Mad Scientist Experiment Runs Amuck!!!!!!!
Today I tried to rid my etching tub of ferric chloride and created a disaster. I forgot I had added baking soda water into a small bowl a few days back and poured it all into a large container with the ferric chloride. A volcano of puffy, boiling, sizzling, spewing mess came pouring out of my throw away container. This stuff took on a life of it's own. Sort of like the big marshmellow man in the movie Ghost Busters. Now, the dilemma, where to put this stuff????? Well, all I know to do with it is put as much as I could in a gargage bag and then hose off the table and deck floor. I've probably contaminated the whole neighborhood.
Sometimes I think I need to be locked up.

These are a cute pair of earrings made with rivets. I used small 11/16 weatherstrip nails on the round piece. I cut it to about 1/8 inch, drill a hole and push the nail through. Flip over to the back side and hammer it flat. It will be secure and next to impossible to remove.

Due to radiation treatment effects, I will be eating softer foods and found this recipe. Thought I would share it.

These are some new jewelry pieces. Solder and charms.
I don't know how so much time has passed that i've not kept up with my blog. I did a small show this spring and this is some of my art. When I say small show, I do mean small. Basically the shows main thing was plants in a beautiful setting at a local nursery. There were only like ten vendors if even that so needless to say it was a no sales show for me. None the less, it was a pleasant day and I did enjoy the beautiful plants and settings.
