Last Day For Ring Sale

I'm a little sad, but it's the last day that I'll be selling the wire wrapped flower rings on Etsy which means it's the last day for the ring sale! I'll be working on new wire wrapped rings and another line of rings soon. Please check back for those!

My Newest Vintage Design

Made with stunning vintage lucite, this necklace has a glow to it. The two different beads really compliment each other and I love the plum shade!

Not My Normal Way Of Doing Things!

I've noticed, ever since I started selling on Etsy in 5/06, that I get in these mood waves (hence my 'what are you in the mood for today' line in my shop) when creating. I'll feel like necklaces with pendants so you'll see a wave of those. Maybe I feel like wire wrapping... next would come that wave. These past few weeks have been different. I noticed the amount of supplies that I have when cleaning out and organizing my new work area. I have things that I purchased back when I first started! My first thought was to sell some of it in my Surplus shop on Etsy, but then I felt up to the challenge of actually using it.

That's when I decided to go on a supply buying freeze. I haven't bought anything since 2/9. Just so you realize this is very abnormal for me. Since I quit my job in the IT world, I had to give up shopping for any extras (clothes, shoes, home decorations, etc...) that was hard, but at least I could still "shop" for my supplies. It satisfied me. It made it much easier to give up the other things. I know I'm starting to sound pathetic, but not buying ANYTHING since 2/9 has been hard and getting harder!! I'm going to at least go throught the end of the month though.
In the meantime, you may notice a wide variety of items in my store. This will continue as I work through my supplies trying to create unique items with all of it. The wave has changed so you'll see wire wrapping, earrings, brass, pearl, bright silver, dark silver and more listed over the past few weeks. Many are one of a kind since I won't restock once it's gone.
That's all. Just felt like I owed you and explanation! :)

Have a great day out there!

One of us on Etsy needs help

Please click this link and purchase from a shop listed. This is a cause trying to raise money for an Etsy seller who has a missing husband. All of the information including news links are in cluded in the thread above.

I will donate proceeds from the Crystal necklace listed below.

Thank you.


Simplicity in all of it's glory :) I received a beautiful strand of clear crystal quartz. It's faceted perfectly and so clear! To get to the necklace that is for sale on my Etsy site, just click on the photo. Have a great day!

A Flower Garden on Your Hand!

All of my wire wrapped rings will be on sale through 2/28 or while supplies last. They were $15 now marked down to $10. I won't be making all of the colors any longer. I may continue making the ruby red jade but not sure. I'm ready to move on to another type of ring.

Winter Colds

It's going around and it's found my home.
We have the winter cold! It's awful. Poor Amelia has a red nose and has gone through so much tissue. I'll leave you with a vintage french medicine print. Scary back then ;)

Studio Progress!

The shelves are up! Yeah! They turned out just how I'd hoped they would. Other than that, progress is slow. Finances... you know! :) Next will be painting some of the great furniture that I have. My mom gave me a credenza that belonged to my Great Grandfather. She also gave me a cute table that will be my photo table. The desk that I found was only $25! It has glass nobs too. It needs some work, but with some love, will be perfect.

See the shelves in the background?
