I finally got a good shot of the black swallowtail. The blue part of it's wings are iridescent. Gorgeous!
Today is the day to get busy again in the studio. I mean it. Vacation is over! Sales at the galleries are starting to pick up a little and when I re-stocked at Main Street Gallery yesterday I realized that my inventory is getting low on some things, like earrings. The lower-end items seem to be what's selling, probably because people are still being cautious with their money. Doesn't matter. I make the same amount of money selling five pair of earrings as I do on one large pendant.
