I was recently looking at a bag of holiday candy-you know the kind that are all shiny like glass but are filled with chocolate-anyway the colors were so great that I decided to see if some of the beads I had would be a match-and YES they were-so I created these--have a look-the red one makes me think of red hots and the cinnamon and cherry flavor-the blue one reminds me of mint and it is such a cool color while the pink one-well that one is just so pretty-it reminds me of the strength of women even when faced with a devastating medical event or anything for that matter-I truly love the way the colors play off each other-When I made these I used a magnetic clasp which makes it very easy to put on and take off- take a look and let me know what you think-do you like the color combinations-what is your favorite color and why-I love to listen to the comments and get a feel of just what my fans like-thanks for looking and if you get a chance please like my face book  page        --thank you!

It has been a while since I last talked to you guys and for that I am sorry-my life has been somewhat of an upset recently but I guess so has yours-that's life I guess but sometime you have to wonder "what did I ever do to deserve this"but I guess it's like the guy who complained he had no shoes until he looked and saw the other guy had no feet-so it could always be worst-that being said I have to be happy about next weekend-It is the Morristown Craft Fair at the armory and I have a booth at it-I am going to show for sale some of my nuno silk felted scarves, some beautiful felted and sinamay hats, some of my crazy handmade jackets and also some very nice felted necklaces and bracelets-I hope you have the time to visit this very nice show-there are so many great artists that show their fine handmade items-I don't know the number of my booth yet as they are given when you sign in but just look for   Cynthia & Company Ltd. in the book of artist--look forward to seeing you there. Good Night!! If you get a chance go on my etsy store and look at some of the items I will feature at the show----      Cynthiaandcompany/

Busy Day

I have been busy the last 6 hours taking pictures of the new work and updating my Instagram, Facebook and Etsy store-I am tired but I wanted to show a couple of picture of the work tonight-I should say this morning since it is 1 am on Thursday and I still have to do the menu for the restaurant-It is Robert Burns Birthday on Monday-You know the Scotish Poet-it's all about the Haggis and Scotch Egg-yes they are on the menu for this weekend-along with Sweed Kettle(Salmon), bashed tatties and neeps(mashed potatoes and mashed turnips)(really quite good) also McKlintock's Lamb Stew, and we have a very special bag pipper Dan Hodge who will be pipping the Haggis in on Monday the 25th of January and Vince Capano will read the Ode to the Haggis-it's quite a show-----anyway back to the new pieces-all are available on my etsy store--

I was trying to think of how to begin this new post--well it's been a SHIT day so I could start with "Oh PooP" maybe but that would not be as strong as it can get-soooo I will just say that it has been a very busy and frustrating day filled with a lot of pain--why --because it was the first day of physical therapy on my New Hip that's right I had my right hip replaced.The surgery was very easy-that's because I had the best surgeon on the east coast possible--Dr.Goldman--has hands of GOLD--on the day of my operation he had 6--that's right--6 surgical suits going at the same time-he was like a bumble bee flitting from one person to the other just cutting out hip joints and putting in new ones---the nurse told me I was #6 and he had 6 more to do-Wow-the recovery is not bad either-mine is two months old now and in about another month I expect to be pain free- ok on to something of a happier and more fun note---I have been working on new pieces for the up coming shows--I sent in my application and now I (like everyone else)waits to see if I got in to my first choices--I hope so--I have been making some really nice bracelets and scarves also hats--don't you just love hats--I do! Here are a few of the new pieces-Let me know what you think-I really would like some comments- Toodles Cynthia
 This is a hand painted by me charmuese silk scarf. I used the gutta resist method with fiber reactive dyes and then steam set the colors. It is about 15" x 72" long. The background is a robins egg blue and the motif is of fantasy flowers. The scarf is so silky soft and wonderful next to the body. It is for sale in my etsy store--www.Cynthiaandcompanyltd--- also visit my web site to see all that I have.
The scarf is $175.
The other two pictures are close ups of the same scarf.
