I have been working like a maniac, ideas flowing like water, and it has been good. I feel the slowdown coming, and plan on enjoying the holiday season with out too much self imposed pressure.
Thanks to everyone who supports my blog and my shop. I hope to be catching up on blogs, and taking some time for myself, and some rest. Making this type of jewelry really does bring me a sense of calm and peace, and happiness.
Wishing everyone a great week!

I have been busy trying to divert my thoughts toward peaceful things and calming creations. These are my latest pieces, I get true joy making pieces like these, using elements from some incredible talented artisans.

Birgitta Lejonklou's moon face link is a beauty by itself, and oh so peaceful looking...very dreamy!
I have also been rather obsessed with Carolyn Saxby's textural fiber beads! Each one is so incredible and unique!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for looking!

I just wanted to start by wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season! I had a terrific day, but kind of a lousy week, with continued health issues, but I am grateful for all of the things in my life, everything and everyday is precious. Thank you to everyone who supports and visits me.

Soooooooo, I am again offering 20% off in my etsy shop as gratitude, from now until next week. Just enter coupon code SAVE20 to receive the discount!

I managed to sneak in this holidayish piece , using my favorite vintage rosaries, a gorgeous vintage rhinestone stull clasp, and some pendants and beads from Nunn Design. I love the clear and black combination, the old and new, and of course the sparkle for the holidays! I hope to be adding more pieces to the shop soon.

Again, thanks for everything!

MOON MAN-available on etsy here

I know, I know, two totally unrelated pieces, but, what can I say, I just go with it! And , if anyone can tell me how blogger now uploads your pictures in no particular order.....I still can't figure that out.

I have been loving Nunn Designs new components in Michaels stores, and these petal shapes fascinate me, so I couldn't resist making these Blossom earrings! These are my kind of flowers, not too frilly, a bit rustic with the bling, and really long.

The Moon Man just makes me smile! The focal is a gorgeous pendant by Birgitta Lenjonklou, and the fab textural fiber beads are by Carolyn Saxby. I have always adored the frozen charlottes, so I had to put this one to good use!

Thanks for taking a peek. Hope everyone is smiling this weekend!

Sometimes , I get in a mood that all I want to do is hammer some metal. It makes me feel good in a way that I could never explain. It makes me think of pure and simple things, like life stripped down to the bare bones, and the only things left are the things that are important, and it says to me it is a natural way to keep all the garbage and foo foo out. Glad I got that off my chest. I am not the best with words, so I hope you got the idea. Here is to a great and simple week!

AND DON'T FORGET MY GIVEAWAY!!! ENTER HERE TO SIGN UP!! You have until Wed. the 16th! And MY ETSY SALE OF 20% off is still on until Wed. as well!

The past few days the weather has been absolutley wonderful, and I have taken advantage of the sunshine, let myself soak it up, and let it influence my jewelry. And so here it is, a glistening of sunshine for the ears, any time of year.

I spent the weekend making this necklace, and feeling very connected to my spiritaul self, and it made me feel good. I do not usually work in brass tones, but it just felt right, with the iconic image and the old world feel. I was in Michaels recently and happened upon Nunn Design's new line they are carrying called Adorned. I fell in love with a lot of the offerings, and used some of them here, including the great flower petal type element, this fantastic large and small chain, and the adorable sparkly headpins. The rest of the necklace is capped yellow jade and jasper nuggets. It's available in my shop here.
Thanks again for looking and all your wonderful comments I look forward to so much!

Remember, I am still offering 20%off in my shop, and you can still enter my giveaway by clicking here!


This spectacular necklace is posted on The Love My Art Jewelry blog. It is made of beads donated by all the artists there and will be part of an ongoing exchange. All the artists there make handmade beads and components, and that is what their mission is all about...using handmade to make handmade. I woke this morning to discover that some people thought this was mine, and I sincerely apologize, that was not my intention at all. I am just trying to spread the word of a great event taking place.
All of the incredible artists over at Love My Art Jewelry blog have come up with an incredible idea of creating and sharing, and of course jewelry making and prizes are involved! Go there now to read all the details, I promise you won't want to miss this!
