The Hook Up

I'm introducing a new product at my Christmas season....purse hangers! They're a cute little hook that you place on top of a table so that you can hang your purse on it.

It was something that I remember my mother having when I was a young child in Hong Kong and it came back to me about a year ago when I got tired of not having a place to put my purse besides on the floor or hanging from the back of the chair. This little accessory was the result of a year's worth of research to find the right supplier of this item.

The one I've acquired holds a minimum 20lbs! I think it should have no problem holding my husband's military packsack! To personalize the pieces as my own, I've made limited edtion patterns for the disc that sits on the table.

Wish me luck on the sale of these items.

I just completed this teapot recently. As usual, nothing's painted on. The complex details are polymer clay canes. This piece also has a mixture of texture sheet mokume gane techniques, carved and inlaid work. It took around six bakings to complete it and wet sanded to a satinlike finish.
