Snowed in...

My crazy selling season has come to an end. I am ready for a much more leisurely pace which is just how I'll spend the winter. We've had so much snow (2'?) and I'm trying to embrace it with lots of photos, hot cocoa, and cooking. I'm also making presents (very last minute) which gives me so much joy.  Below is a custom "Rags and Riches" necklace in coral and turquoise which looked quite festive.
Little Kiwi makes the snow look all the more dramatic.  
Happy Merry to All!

Winter Wonderland

I awoke to a crystal world on Friday.  It was just magical...
The ice lasted until last night and made the sunset incredible.

Solstice Pendant, exclusively for the Sweet Lady Jane Trunk Show

The word "Solstice" is derived from two Latin words: "sol" meaning sun, and "sistere," to stand still.  As the darkest time of the year falls upon us, we can be reminded that very soon the days will grow longer and the sun will slowly come back into our lives. This is the Solstice Pendant that I will be selling exclusively at the Sweet Lady Jane Trunk Show. I just made a small batch and its first come first serve till they're gone! It is pure silver with 24k gold on top. It features a spiraled sun on the front and the back is signed. It comes on a red silk cord. It will be offered at a special show price.

Exciting News!!!!

I wrote a "how to" chapter on my fabric earrings for a Lark book called "Stitched Jewels: Jewelry That's Sewn, Stuffed, Gathered & Frayed". They chose my work for the cover! It comes out in May.  I'm beyond thrilled!

Trunk Show at Sweet Lady Jane!

I'm so excited about this show!  I had one there last year and it was so much fun.  It is such a beautiful boutique and the staff is so sweet.  I'm working on a limited edition pendant that I'll sell exclusively at this show so stay tuned for more on that...

New Bronze pieces in my Etsy Shop

The Women's Festival of Crafts was great.  I made soooooo much work to get ready for that show and now I'm able to put some stuff in my Etsy shop.  I added about 20 pieces today.  I can't believe it's December now.  Sheesh.  No time to rest, gotta get ready for my Trunk Show at Sweet Lady Jane on Dec 13th.  More on that soon...
