Hanging out with Kati

Kati and I


Recently Rob and I got to hang out with my old friend who’s also my daughter’s best friend, Kati. Kati was in town to run a half marathon and what was supposed to be a night of dinner with us turned into a few days of fun.
I loved catching up and talking about old times. I think she loves AZ and was sad to go. Hopefully she’ll be back soon.


And now to the new friend part of this post. Rob and I rescued/adopted this precious baby two weeks ago. She was found in a park. Her mom had been killed by a coyote. The rescue named her Snowball but we changed it to Zoe. She’s such a sweet girl. We’re thrilled to have found her.

Zoe has become comfortable in no time as you can see!!!

Sterling feather with turquoise


Between and old friend and new friend…I’ve been busy. Above is a sterling feather that I created with the impression of a naturally shed horned owl feather. We seem to have a big guy living on our roof lately. His wing span is impressive when he swoops down. I’ve had quite a few requests to similar silver feathers. They’re pretty large and look striking on.

Old friend and new friend ….it’s been awesome. Friends are welcome here!! (most of them anyway…lol)

My name is Manon. (pronounced Man + O) Yes….my mom cursed me with my name. In her defense I guess she never though I’d leave Quebec. I’m a jewelry artist and painter. I’ve been creative as long as I can remember and things haven’t changed. I now live in Scottsdale, AZ with my man, Rob. I spend most days in my studio making pieces that speak to my heart. Thanks for stopping by!!
