I am on Vacation !!!!

Today is the first day of my vacation and I am excited to be able to spend more time working on my jewelry and will also be trying to post here more this coming week. I will be adding new earrings and new mens jewelry to my etsy shop over the next week. I am going to be concentrating on expanding the variety of items in my shop and will be adding in both the men and womens jewelry. I have a Father's Day showcase booked for June 7th which I will be preparing for.

I still have my poll running at the bottom of the page on the types of materials and jewelry that you prefer. Please vote and let me know what types of jewelry you would like to see in my shop. Please also feel free to contact me with suggestions, comments and custom made orders.

I have also been added to the Etsy Shop Directory for which you can find a link on the side of my page here. I also had the pleasure of being featured in a couple of Treasuries this past week ! Thanks LemonVerbena for including me !

Please also check out some of my other new links including Mu-Yin Jewelry who I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with this past weekend. She has some great links and information on her blog as well.

Have a great weekend and please check back I will be posting some pictures as well of the new pieces.

New Treasury of Copper and Coral

Hello !!

Happy Memorial Day weekend !!! I am enjoying the sunshine and warm weather and decided to create a new treasury of warm summer sun colors of copper and coral. These are also my favorite colors to use in summer jewelry and have many personal peices that I have made for myself of these colors and given as a gift for Mother's Day.

You can view the treasury here on on the link in the title on the actual etsy web page location ( It's a bit bigger and easier to see ) until Tuesday evening when it will expire.

Have a warm and sunny and safe holiday weekend!

Water, Sand & Fun in the Sun Treasury

I was able to be the curator for another Etsy Treasury this weekend and the theme is in anticipation of my "vacation" from work. I will not be able to go to the beach so I at least wanted to go virtually.

On my vacation I will be taking time to take care of myself, but I will also be taking the time to focus more on the designing, instead of promoting of my jewelry ! I will be making several new items for the guys for Father's Day but I will also be making more summer inspired jewelry for the women as well. I am really looking forward to this time off...I really need it. I would love to take a day trip at least to Lake Michigan if the gas prices allow or I get my stimulus check in time !

I also want to thank Timothy Adams Designs for burying me in his Etsy Shop Blog listed in the link here on the side of the page. You will find me in the 3rd Jewelry section and in the section FOR THE GUYS. Timothy does beautiful metal work and has a beautiful vintage camera necklace that is a favorite of mine !

Stay posted... I will also be working on posting more, especially during the time that I will be on vacation letting you know of when I will be listing new items to my shop.

How Creative Are You ?

I have not had the opportunity to spend as much time on my jewelry lately and am working my way back to spending more time with it. I have taken the time to make a necklace as a gift for my nephew and his first communion gift and to re-size a watch for an Etsy sale that I made a couple of days ago. I have started a a couple of projects but keep finding myself being pulled away. Other outside factors have also been contributing to my creative flow...noise from a neighbors dog, and stress from a full time job. But I am very enthusiastic to get those creative juices flowing again. I have so many ideas and projects that I would like to get finished for the summer, so stay tuned. I found this quiz to be very appropriate for me right now.

Take this quiz to find out how creative you are ....

You Are 78% Creative

You are beyond creative. You are a true artist - even if it's not in the conventional sense of the word.

You love creating for its own sake, and you find yourself quite inspired at times.
