Tea Time!

Last week, I told you about a new local store is opening up in Lloydminster called Harvest to Home.

The owners are wonderful women who appreciate the idea of handcrafted and homemade. When they approached me to create a line for their new store, I knew it had to special.
It had to be just right. They had great ideas and together we envisioned food & home related bling that was perfect.

I took notes while we talked and started to sketch right away. This was a
few months ago. As the ideas came, I added to my sketches and notes.

The next step was to take these ideas and create a way to make templates to be used over and over. This is a series after all, and exclusive to Harvest to Home. I decided that I would make them one of a kind afterward by using different stones and chains with each one.

Some charms could be used in bracelets, earrings or wine charms, too.

So I created templates for each idea in a hard plastic sheet that you can buy for crafting.

I used silver clay to build the charms. It was a process of both using the template to cut out the shape, and drawing into the shape to add detail. I also used a syringe to add 3-D elements to some of them.
(The leaf and bug were for different clients. I'm a multi-tasker...)

After firing, adding liver of sulphur to darken the details and polishing... TA DA!

All that from a pencil sketch... isn't art wonderful!?

If you'd like to see more of the jewelry from this line, stop in at Harvest to Home - it opens November 12th!!

Also, please take time on November 11th to honor our fallen and the military - past and present.

Creatively Yours,

Happiness creates sunshine whenever you go.

Exciting November!!

November will be jam-packed with excitement here at Sunshine INdustries.

First of all, the website security has been beefed up and it is live!
The re-design and security was done by Seth Etter.

I love it.

Second of all, our promo photos from Ardell McLennan Photography arrived.
They are amazing.
Models Amanda Hanson and Jennifer Lyons did a fantastic job.
They are two b-ee-u-ti-ful women.
Ardell's touch and the location of Ernie's Coffee Shop both made the photos spectacular.

Look for some to hit the website soon. Seth
is a busy man.

Thirdly, look for the opening of Harvest to Home.
This store is such a great addition to our community. There have their own bakeshop and an entertainment kitchen for cooking classes or as a rental space for special occassions WITH a chef if you want!
How cool is that?
They will be carrying locally made food - including flour ground
right there in front of your eyes from local crops.
Everything in their store will be Canadian and local-within-a-day.
Every tried the 100 mile diet? Well, it just became more possible.

They will also have some local art, kitchen items and... drumroll... a special exclusive line of Sunshine INdustries jewelry.

Lastly - the Christmas Craft Show is coming up on November 19th, 20th and 21st.

Hope to see you at the Craft Fair!

That's a lot to look forward to in one month.
May the Bling be with You...
