Virginia's B-dazzled Crocs

Why would a person want to wear plain old shoes when they could have a pair of sparkly, glittery and be-dazzled crocs? At least, that’s the way I feel about it and apparently so does Virginia. You might ask, ‘Who is Virginia?’ Well, she is a very special member of my high school class who has given much time and energy every 5 years in preparing our school reunions as well as generally keeping the entire class together via her monthly newsletter.

I’ve known Virginia since junior high school where she and I and two other friends, Cheryl Harvey and Karen Gulakowski, sang on stage at all the school events and even were ‘hired’ to sing at Christmas parties all around town. Our music teacher thought “The Four Melodies” were destined for stage and screen. I wonder who thought up that name for us? It seems like we could have come up with something a little more spiffy.

Here Virginia is pictured with an adorable, ‘hip’ 50’s outfit.

Virginia made a comment on one of my blogs that featured my b-dazzled crocs. She said something to the effect that if she had those shoes, she’d wear them to our reunion. I decided to test her to see if she meant it by asking her if I made her a pair of my b-dazzled crocs, would she really, wear them to one of our events. She came back with “How nice of you to want me to have a pair of those special shoes. You are really so kind. Would I wear them for the reunion? You bet I would-all three days.” So, Virginia, the challenge is on. Your red, black and white (school colors) crocs featured in this post are on the way to your home. I wonder if there will be any beads left on those crocs after our fun-filled three day event!

Tatiana, Fairy Queen

Sometimes I get carried away with my mosaics. One example would be my b-dazle car, which you can view here. Another would be my laundry room labyrinth floor, shown here. The latest adventure in mosaics is a new series I’ve named simply, Mosaic Goddess Planters.

Tatiana, is the first in my series. The name means "Fairy Queen," according to an online fairy site. LOL. Tatiana's dimentions are approx 15"h x 9"w x 9"d. She is quite striking when the light hits the stained glass and glass tiles. She is more expensive than most of my planters because of the time factor. I not only sculpted her of stoneware clay, but then fired and mosaiced her. I lost track of the hours and I see no way to shorten the process. I’ve priced her at $375.00. One of these days, I’ll figure out how to make something simple!
If anyone is interested in purchasing Tatiana, you can contact me by e-mail
