New Items!!!

I have added a couple of new items in the last two days.

Here is a new necklace I created! This sweet little thing has a pretty citrine briolette gemstone, delicately wrapped in sterling silver wire, and suspended from a super fine sterling silver chain. I also added some citrine rondelles near the lobster clasp. I also oxidized this. I love how it is a bit rustic looking, so pretty and sweet! Sweet as honey!! =)

I absolutely LOVE this next necklace!! It is made of AA quality Tanzanite gemstones and it looks amazing with the oxidized sterling silver!!!! =) I want one for myself!

A new pair of Apricot Cubic Zirconia Earrings with Rock Crystal Quartz... So Pretty!!

You can see them in my shop here:

Thank You!!

Are you Naughty or Nice??

The funniest thing just happened! On Valentine's Day, the treasury was about to open, I got the treasury I wanted to present all ready to enter. When the treasury opened, I entered the name, I hit OK, Create, and the system booted me off! Fast forward two days, I am checking out the different treasuries, and what do I see at the bottom? My Treasury! Sitting there BLANK! For 2 days! I couldn't believe it! =) So I hurry and enter all my treasury numbers and now it is up! I am lucky that I still have another 24 hours that others can still see it.

Here is my new treasury...

Please check it out! =)

Fireweed Earrings & Trinity Necklace

I have been wanting to make a pair of earrings that remind me of the beautiful Fireweed flowers we have here in Alaska. I bought these pink tourmaline gemstones for a bracelet I was going to make, but I didn't like how small they were for that. So, this is what I came up with! =) They are made with pink tourmaline rondelles and green onyx briolettes. I made them long so that the top would resemble the upward flow of the fireweed flower. You can find them in my shop here:
I named this necklace Trinity because of the trio of gems. I love how the colors of these stones go with each other. This necklace is made of moonstone, labradorite and blue apatite. The super fine chain is 18 inches long, with an apatite gemstone hanging next to the lobster clasp. You can see it in my shop here:
I will be adding a set of Carnelian stone earrings and necklace soon! Please check back!

OLIVE Bloom and PLUM Wild

YAY!!! =) I made a treasury!! I have had the hardest time with timing on making a treasury lately, but I finally did it! Last night, I got up twice in the middle of the night, trying to time the Treasury West treasury but I barely missed it. Once, I was entering the name I wanted to call my treasury when it suddenly timed out on me and shut me out! I was so close! In the past, I have done a couple of treasuries. However, I wasn't able to make a screen shot of them. Those days are over! Here is my latest treasury...

I love these colors together!! =) What do you think!!

Sterling Silver Teardrops

I found these lovely sterling silver teardrops that I had to use in my earrings! I ended up making two pairs and they are so sweet!!

New listings in my shop:

These are made of neon blue apatite rondelle gemstones that hang on sterling silver headpins, attached to the pretty sterling silver teardrop charm. These are the first pair of earrings that I have ever used leverback earwires. I love them! These gemstones are a AAA quality stone that I just love!

A brilliant quality pair of sunstone briolettes!! They light up as though there is fire glowing from within!! They are a petite pair of stones that fit perfectly into the silver teardrops. I also tried the leverback earwires on these. What do you think?! =)

Good Evening =)

Welcome to my new blog! I am new to the whole world of blogging and twittering, but once I play with a bit, it will be as if I really new what I was doing! =)

I have been working so hard on my shop and I think it is finally coming together. I am so excited!! I have had almost 20 sales now and I am slowly adding more inventory too! Things have been a bit slow the last few days but I have faith that it will all work out. I have been trying out different ideas and designs so I don't have the same thing all the time in my shop. I like the variety. My goal for the future is to expand to using vintage glass beads and brass and copper antiqued wire. I really love the look of that it brings! =)

Here are a few things that I have been working on:

Rock crystal quartz wire wrapped and hung from purple amethyst rondelles. I love how these stones look together! I also oxidized these and brushed and polished them. The earwires are handmade by me and I had so much fun shaping them. Hammering them was a blast! =) I have so much I want to do in the future with hammering metal.

These ruby earrings were so much fun to create!! I love how they are elongated on the disc chain. So feminine!! All my jewelry is fun to create and play with! I want every piece I make! If only I could have one of each! ha! I want my customers to love them too!!

Please enjoy!!!
