Playing with copper...


I have finally re-opened my shop and added some new things! The copper cuff shown above is one of them.

I love experimenting with alternative metals, so today I took out a sheet of copper and went to work. I am very pleased with the finished product and I hope you are too!

Diamond In The Rough - Sterling Silver Bangle

"They call her LOVE, LOVe, LOVE, LOVE....."

Sorry, but this bangle makes me sing! I just love it!

I formed this bangle from solid sterling silver and then textured it all over by hand. The end result reminds me of a rough diamond. She just shimmers and shines in the light!

Get you one here!

Lazy Days Of Summer

Yay! My son's last day of school is today, so after his pool party, I am on vacation!

I chose this picture of Max lazily sipping his water to symbolize how I want to spend the summer!

Finally

There has been so much going on lately, but I finally got back into the studio today to just create and made something new! I just love this ring! Check it out here!

Adopted By A Dog


Sorry for the bad picture, but there wasn't much light this morning.

The black dog is Lily. She showed up a few months ago wearing that collar and she hasn't left since. She eats here, sleeps here, and plays here and that's the way she likes it.

The problem is that we have already adopted two dogs, Layla and Lucy. We do not need or want a third dog. We have tried to figure out where she came from, but no luck. Someone was taking care of her and trained her, but they remain to be seen.

Even though Lily is a sweetheart, we are going to try to find her a home. I will miss her, but I will not miss feeding her!


This is Lucy!

Dream of a little hope and love....


I love these sweet little charms. They are sterling silver and heart shaped and feature dyed fresh water potato pearls. I have pearls in cream, purple, mauve, and aqua.

I have hand stamped these hearts with DREAM, HOPE, and LOVE and have put some on sterling chains for sale in my shop. These are really fun because you can mix it up with whatever pearls or words you want!

Happy Good Friday!

Kitty OCD?

Yeah, that's what I said. My three-year old cat, Ginger, has OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).

She meticulously over grooms herself to the point of baldness. So far she has licked away half the hair on her belly and legs, as you can see in the above photo. She did this before, about two years ago when we first brought her home from the shelter. Now here we go again.

It drives me a little nuts when I see her grooming herself to soothe herself, but nothing I do can make her stop.

The vet has given us some anxiety medication for her, but it is very difficult to give it to my highly stressed feline, she is a finicky one you see. We are still seeking alternative remedies, so if anyone reads this and knows of one, we sure would appreciate it.

Have a great Wednesday!

Manic Monday

Well, the weekend is already gone and Monday is here again. So much to do, so little energy.

My jealousy has been sparked by watching this sleeping cat. The only thing he has to do is get up to eat and then find a new sleep position. Oh to have that life!

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Friday!

It's finally Friday! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I just added these gorgeous earrings to my shop! They are called Raw Silk.

I am really getting into texture, so look for more textured pieces in my shop, coming soon.

No time like the present....

Actually, to me, time is a present. Fortunately for me, I spent all of yesterday cleaning my house from top to bottom. There is nothing left to be done. Nothing at all. Well, until it all starts over again, right?

So today is free day for me. Yes, I do need to run some errands and continue my starring role as wife and mother, but other than that it is STUDIO DAY!

I am very excited about this because, as you may have seen in my previous post, I attempted my first bezel setting. I can't wait to see if I can do it again! It is all I thought about as I was on my hands and knees yesterday, scrubbing the tile. Wooohooo!

If you know me, you know I love to just create.

And did I mention I am serving leftovers for dinner? Sometimes it is great to be me :)

I Tried Something New!

Here it is, in all its unpolished glory! This was my very first attempt at doing a bezel setting! Well, it might not be much, but I sure felt proud.

Now, I wonder if I can do it again?

A little something new......



Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. The whole house had the dreaded flu, but everyone is better now and I am back in action!

So, let me introduce my new Sweetgrass line! Pictured above are my new Sweetgrass earrings and my new Sweetgrass ring, available in any size. Enjoy!

Lost & Found



Yay! I was digging through my box of goodies and I found these two rings! I have no idea why I never listed them, but I am now!

The top ring is my Queen Of Hearts ring, and it is a size 7. The bottom ring is a size 8.

A Mini Rant

Sellers--beware!

I know there are many of you out there that rely on consigning your goods and, of course, the old net 30. I was once one. Unfortunately I have found myself ripped off by a certain store and it is so disheartening. I hate that there are people out there who are so dishonest.

Thankfully, there are lawyers and courts out there and it seems I will be heading to one in a couple of weeks. And I will be recovering my court costs when I win!

I was lucky enough to have documented everything, and I suggest you do the same with any retailer you are doing business with. I have every piece of correspondence there is and I am told this will win my case. I have even been in contact with two others that have had the same issues with this particular store.

Make sure you save everything, even things that do not seem relevant. I hope you will never find yourself in this situation, but always be prepared.

/end rant

That being said, I have had a wonderful consignment experience with another store on the west coast and I could not be happier with them. They are absolutely honest, lovely ladies, but because of the one bad apple, I would never enter in to anything similar ever again.

Thank God It's Friday!

Yay, it's Friday! Of course, I don't know where the week went. I hope yours has been good and that you have an even better weekend!

I just added a new cuff to my shop--Skinny Minnie. I love this little cuff. It has the look of a bangle, but can be custom fitted to your wrist where it will stay put. It is made of solid sterling silver and has a square profile. Check it out!


Have a great weekend,

Make a statement.......



First of all, I just hate modeling necklaces on myself :( But it is a necessity because I have no patience to wait until I can get a friend to do it.

So, here she is: Freya. Freya is my new statement piece, isn't she great? I made this necklace from solid sterling silver and put it on an 18" chain.

This necklace comes with a warning: Not intended for those who want to go unnoticed.

I have a secret......

Message that is!

This is my newest bangle bracelet, just in time for Valentine's day! It is completely hand forged from sterling silver and has a semi-hidden message stamped along the side, "I love you".

This will make the perfect Valentine's gift for your loved one!

The last butterfly.....


My Butterfly Ring was a limited edition, and here we are at the last one! I was surprised at how fast they went. I may revisit selling more in the future, but for now, this is the last one!

So, if you had your eye on it, act fast!

Metal Mouth!

Ah! My baby, who is 12, just got his braces on today!

He was so nervous, but he did just fine. Now I have to find a whip so I can stand behind him and make sure he brushes his teeth 4 times a day!

Now I need to work that torch even harder to pay for these things! And boy, do I feel like a soccer mom :(

Branching out....


Yay! One of the things I really love about selling on Etsy is getting on the front page and being in the gift guides.

This lovely treasury was curated by Eclipse and was featured yesterday around 7 pm.

I was at the movies, but thanks to Featsy I was able to find out about it.

But, I do sell on lots of other venues. Like Smashing Darling, Joolia (I am on their front page!), and now ArtFire.

We shall see how it goes, but I believe in covering all the avenues.

Visit my new ArtFire shop here.
