Welcome to day 1 of the PCAGOE challenge vote! The theme for May's challenge is HISTORICAL. Maria Psaltis writes about her entry at the right, "These have been made using inspiration from the minoanss in Greece,the palace of Knossos has still some amazing frescoes that were made 1700BC,flowers and the spiral designs are evident in may of the works." So much of the art of today was inspired by the Greeks and Romans, including the wonderful designs in glassware and jewelry like these wonderful earrings Maria created. Maria is from Sydney, Australia. Her polymer work varies from wonderful mica shifts, to beautiful mosaics and appliques. It often has an old world feel to it with hints of ancient egypt or other ancient civilizations. You can find her Etsy shop HERE or visit her blog at and her website at

I've been busy with a birthday party for my soon to be 11 year old daughter the last few days. For an activity we made simple flower canes and covered glass vials for necklaces and pens. The girls had a blast and were so proud of their creations and it made for a wonderful time and a beautiful party favor for them to cherish. I've been slowly working on a few more kachina inspired creations and hopefully will have something to show tomorrow. Here is a fun Mother's Day inspired pair of earrings from my "Children of the World" series. This pair features the cane I've named 'Connie.'

Have a great rest of the weekend!
