Get Over It!

I bought some beautiful stones a couple of months ago, one of which was the most incredible purple square labradorite. I lost it. Yep... after wrapping it up I put it in the tarnishing solution, pulled it out, and was all ready to polish it up when one of my children needed me. I set it on the counter, and suddenly, it was gone. It took me a while to get the motivation to make anything else. (I still haven't found it...)

I then created this beauty for a potential customer, but the sale fell through. It is still available however, and is only 55.00 with 3.00 shipping.

But, suddenly I got "the bug" again, and came up with this... And, what I've noticed about my best pieces is that they often flow so easily. I make them with little effort, it's sort of like something has guiding my hands as I create. I love this new piece, a labradorite with a garnet accent, using metal smith techniques, filigree soldering (which I need more practice with, I will admit), and wire wrapping techniques. All of the materials (except the chain) has been made with resourced, reclaimed copper, meaning in a former life this necklace had a current of electricity running through it, powering the lights or an appliance in somebody's home. Obviously for this pendant that was a good omen.

It is 85.00 plus 3.00 shipping, and comes in a lovely gift box. If you're interested please send me an email.


  1. The Breitling Watches is my favorite style except the Panerai ASSO strap. Breitling is black leather band, while the front side of the leather is like brushed finishing, Fake Breitling Watches is more beautiful than those leather bands with polished bright face. The Replica Breitling is wide like the case, it has a big Bell Ross logo embossed on the leather. The leather of Louis Vuiton Handbags feels very soft to wear, not hard, and because made of genuine calf skin, it is durable.
