2007 ends... Thank you everyone!

Wow! Here it is, December 31st. I must admit that despite little setbacks here and there, 2007 was a fabulous year!

I experienced many great moments these past 12 months and I'm so thankful for each and every one. I must mention that, without a doubt, one of my best moments was 'meeting' my sweet friend Janell! She is the reason I set up my shop on Besides being a very talented artist, she is sincerely a sweet person and friend. Thank you Janell - you're a big part of my life!

I also want to thank my boys Jeremy & Jason who are the best kids a parent could every hope for! A HUGE thank you to Mark, my soulmate/best friend/hubby, who stands by me, supports me, encourages me, listens to me, and loves me unconditionally - even when I ramble, like now.

On that note, I have many goals for the coming year, both personally and professionally. In fact, my brain is swimming with so many new creations to, well, create, that I don't know where to start exactly. Well, actually I do know where to start and that would be with my list.

Happy New Year everyone and thank you all!


p.s. The ring shown here is another fun creation of mine. Feel free to visit my shop to see more :)

Wire Wrapped Rings

I am quite excited about my learning new techniques and mediums to broaden my expanding jewelry career. One, in particular, is my learning metalsmithing - which will be my next blog as it will be more detailed - for now, I want to share with you my new self-taught creations...

This Snow Jade Sterling Silver wire wrapped ring is my favorite, so far. I call it "Moon Glow" because it truly reminds me of the glow of the moon on a clear night. It was rather cloudy the day I wanted to take the photos and I just couldn't wait. So, I went ahead and took them outside like I normally do. I was happily surprised to see how cool and mysterious the photos turned out - plus it really fits the name I gave it.

Yes, I've been on a ring wrapping frenzy, but loving it. I'm also creating some for the younger gals - some fun & funky type rings. Funny, I never really cared much for 'rap', but I am totally into this kind of wrapping!
