For the Love of a Friend and a Frenchie

Okay so I finally just admit that I love to make jewelry. My passion for mixed media and altered art has somehow led me here, and I know why... I get to wear all of those little pieces of art. Now I find that instead of hoarding all of my beloved flea market finds, I just make them into something I can wear. Although I always am inspired by my precious found objects, nothing is more inspiring than creating special pieces for my friends. Lately I have been using these glass hearts I found at a floral supply. They are imperfect little blocks of glass that magnify and distort whatever you put behind them. Here is a piece that I made for a sweet friend Terry Frias. Terry is the proud momma to three pups, but the one I always remember is Max, her french bulldog. I fell in love with a frenchie at the dog park and have wanted one ever since. I have two pitbulls and it would be hard to talk my husband in to a tiny pooch, but those frenchies pack a lot of muscle in those tiny bodies, I think it would be a great compromise! Anyway, enough about dreaming of doggies I need another dog like I need a hole in the head! Here is the soldered piece I gave to terry for her birthday:



  1. That's me, that's my frenchie and I am the happy recipient of Denise's wonderful work of art. I love my necklace and I love u Denise! Thank u!!! Xoxo
