Reflections

Chili Reflections Version 1
I tried several crafts before I started making jewelry.  One of the creations that I enjoy making almost as much as jewelry is something I call "Reflections" 

I call them "Reflections" for a couple of reasons.  First is the fact that I start with a good sized mirror.  Second is the fact that the irror is decorated to "reflect" the taste and personality of the new owner. 


The Chili Reflections were made for my Mother-in Law.  Her house was decorated in chili peppers.  Version 1 was the first Reflections that I completed.  I don't remember why I decided to change it before I gave it to her but Version 2 is the official version.

Blue Reflections

I made the Blue Reflections for myself.  The flowers that I used are some of the flowers from our table at our wedding reception.  Both my husband and I love blue.

Texas Rose






The Texas Rose is just a little something I threw together to use the ceramic roses.  The flowers were originally red but I have always loved yellow roses.











Seascape Reflections Version 1

The Seascape Reflections Version 1 is my pride and joy.  When this one was completed i came to the realization that my life had changed in many ways.  This was the first time that I created something that I felt I could be proud of.


Before we moved to Las Vegas from Lubbock, my son, Ken's girlfriend (now his wife) fell in love with this.  Needless to say she received it as a going away gift from me.

Incomplete Seascape







 A few days ago I got bit by the bug again.  I started a new Seascape Reflections.  This is a picture of it about half-way through.


The picture below is still not quite done.  i am still playing with the shells and i am trying to find the perfect candle holder. 



Seascape Reflections Version 2?



I would like to have a "Reflections" listed in my store but that is difficult because each one is made specifically for someone.  "Reflections" are by their nature different for everyone. 





If you would like me to work on a "Reflection" for you please contact me.
