Working with wire has hardened my fingertips, broken my nails, poked and scratched my skin,
but it's heightened my creativity, challenged my mind, and helped me produce art that makes me proud.

My Garnet Ring
For the past couple of years, or as long as my three year old son Wesley has been alive, I've been hankering for a beautiful garnet ring. Garnet is Wesley's birthstone. I have found a few at jewelry stores that I really loved, and seriously considered getting once I had the money to do so, but it never happened. Either I couldn't justify spending the money, or Mother's Day would come and go and I wouldn't have my ring. Today, I decided to make a garnet ring. I am so in love with this ring. It has three stones, you know, for past, present and future (blah blah blah). This one is a keeper. I'm just hoping I can recreate the magic for my customers.
