The Lazy Days of Summer...and...The Winner Is!

Ahh the lazy days of summer - the weather has finally started to behave like summer, hot and sticky, and things have been slowing down around the studio. Not to say I haven't been busy, I've done some re-organizing and re-prioritizing and cleaning and clearing, and still managed to put together a few more antique rosary choker style necklaces in the process:

The Earth Is Filled With His Glory

Consuming Fire

Find both necklaces at OPF Studio ~ great additions to your summer wardrobe!

And the winner is...
For those of you who are on my mailing list and have been waiting to hear who the lucky winner of June's drawing for one of my 100+ pc ephemera paper packs is.....
Well, July's newsletter is on it's way so look for it to see if it is you!
In addition, you'll be receiving an exclusive offer for discounts in both the studio and the store, as well as a chance to sign up for July's give-away!
This month I have made the switch to using a professional e-mailing service to host my newsletter and keep better track of my mailing list sign-ups, but I am on a learning curve for adding the sign-up form to my blog. So until I get it all figured out and posted, if you would like to be added to my mailing list, send me an e-mail at and I will forward a copy of the July newsletter to you so that you can take advantage of the savings and sign-up for the give-away too.

"I am my beloveds and my beloved is mine." Song of Solomon 6:3

A commissioned piece I made based on one that I created in the past. I really enjoyed going back to this style and it has inspired several other projects that I am very excited about!

The Heart of Worship

The Heart of Worship
I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You,
It's all about You, Jesus
I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it
When it's all about You,
It's all about You, Jesus

Song: The Heart of Worship by Michael W. Smith
Necklace is available at OPF Studio today

We Cry Holy Holy Holy

This antique rosary choker style necklace is the first of several I plan to list at OPF Studio this week. I broke my good camera so getting suitable pictures for the listing is challenging, keep checking in.

Each choker is a one-of-a-kind original work combining antique rosary beads, religious and other medals, contemporary beads, and hand fabricated clasps.

Length's are adjustable at 14.5" and 15.5", with additional increments available for a small fee at the buyers request.
