Welcome to Southerly Arts!

This website has long been promised to those who previously shopped my former Etsy shops:  Libellula Jewelry and Cicada Silver.  My work is back online while still being available at:

Louisiana Crafts Guild

  • LA Guild, 333 Canal Place, Suite 205, New Orleans LA 

Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi

  • The Bill Waller Craft Center, 950 Rice Rd, Ridgeland MS
  • Visitor Services/MS Craftsmen's Guild Gallery, Outlets at Pearl, Pearl MS

and Libellula Jewelry Outlet where I list leftovers from older collections, items made during blog hops, prototypes, and items previously misplaced after markets and festivals, etc.  If you missed purchasing an older item at a market or one of the galleries, it might be in my outlet now.


You'll find the same styles and quality you've come to expect in my work.  And, my offerings now include bead woven jewelry.  I've always loved beads and now, I've grown to love tiny beads, too. 

I'll use this blog to announce new collections & holiday discounts, and share occasional cat photos & maybe a favorite recipe or two.  You'll see photos of work in progress and what's on my bench or bead table. 

I'm currently working on a few festive holiday items such as my brick stitch Christmas tree earrings.
