Welcome Oz Folk!

When I started this Oz journey, I thought of all kinds of things to do, ruby slippers, Munchkins, scary forests, Scarecrows, Tin Men, Lions, poppy fields and Witches good and bad (I read several of the Oz books, and it's still on my grown-up to-do list to read all the others.)  Then I decided to listen to my muse, and she almost always tells me to make jewelry.  So, I made a Yellow Brick Road, ruby slippers, Emerald City, Wicked Witch's castle, out of Kansas, Rasta (unintentional) choker.  The ceramic donut is courtesy of the amazing Marla James, and it reminded me of the center square in Munchkinland where Dorothy landed, and of the various stages of the journey, Munchkinland/Yellow Brick Road, Emerald City, the dark passage to the Witch's lair, and finally the Ruby Slippers.





I hope you all enjoy, and I am SOOOOO excited to see all of your art!
