Driftwood art, jewelry and more from C.S. Alexis at Adrift Art Studio

Making more changes at Adrift Art Studio to incorporate new ideas and life styles for C.S. Alexis and company. There has been much goings on with the move to Henderson NV. and personal affairs within the business. Life deals a hand and we play it. That is the thought from C.S. Alexis. We have to go with the flow and work within our means. Not always what we plan but what we have to do to keep it all in motion.

She has been inspired with fresh feelings for the driftwood she has been working on. Some of that inspiration has lead to finished pieces being posted on both shops. Handcrafted Jewelry USA saw the first designs with the googly eyes and other jewelry pieces made from driftwood.

Adrift Art Studio has also grown to incorporate the love of the driftwood. C.S. Alexis has finished artwork for sale in that Etsy shop as well. There is more to come and another driftwood hunting trip in the near future. C.S. wants to make sure there is a huge variety of driftwood available before the cold weather sets in around Chicago. Not much fun trudging through ice and snow to collect the driftwood.

Winter weather is better spent in Henderson working on the pyrographics and the jewelry. C.S. has some fresh ideas on re-purposing too. Here is a recent article she wrote about driftwood art, C.S. Alexis on Keep a keen eye peeled for some innovative art to come from Adrift Art Studio this fall.

Driftwood On The Artistic Menu

I have been working in the studio more the past week. So many ideas and never enough time. I love the driftwood and since I have a fresh supply it has me up nights. The nights are cooling off some so I can get outside and work. That is what I like to do.

The sound of crickets chirping, silence...there is no such thing in my mind. I hear the electricity humming and I wood burn. Night time is the right time for the creepy projects I have been inspired to create. Halloween is not far off and I want to make up plenty of fun things to put in the Adrift Art Studio on I have a few things posted for sale already.

This Halloween I want to offer up a variety of work. My motivational level is high. I am going to be traveling back to Chicago again soon too. That has my artwork on production mood as well. We are going to have several private jewelry parties in Chicago in September. Lots to do and lots to look forward to. Life is good and exciting around Adrift Art Studio. Oh BOY! Counting our blessings always.

Creepy bones and drooling lips are what makes Halloween so much fun for the creative minded. It goes great on the driftwood. I plan to grow my driftwood supply upon my return to Chicago next month too. Looking to double what we have posted for sale at the Adrift Art Studio Shop.

Wishing happiness and creative bliss to everyone.

Adrift Art Studio selling natural driftwood

Posted by Picasa

C.S. Alexis has been applying her creative energy to mixed media using driftwood for many years. Now she has taken her love for the gift from Mother Nature to another level. Collecting driftwood from the shores of Lake Michigan started as a hobby oh so many years past. C.S. has decided to add the raw driftwood and elements made from the driftwood to her art and craft supplies available in the Etsy shop, Adrift Art Studio.

Pictured above is just a sample of what is available now. There will be more driftwood added as it is finished curing. The driftwood is shipped from Chicago to Las Vegas where it is sun dried in the hot Las Vegas desert. Once it is ready to make driftwood art and crafts it will be offered for sale. See more driftwood now.
