Pretty, New, Shiny Disc Earrings

are finally here, look for more soon...

(though you will love these I think)

Shiny warm copper, each disc cut and forged by my hands, sanded to smooth shine light as feathers. Great for everyday wear....they have sterling silver ear wires made by me as well.
These lovelies dangle to 1 3/4 inch from top of earwire to bottom of disc. Each disc is approximately 3/4" wide (they are domed as well)

Ginger will be 5 months old this week! She's just a little over 11 lbs. The weather was so warm today she had 2 long walks. She's become a sweet member of our family. Scrappy wants nothing to do with her and Diamond holds her ground. I'm hoping in time they can all coexist in our home. :-)

Last Chance Sale Items

Sweet Customers
After tomorrow (Sunday) I will be moving several (not all) of my items I've had on sale for you, back into their regular categories at their regular price. I've enjoyed some really nice sales in this section, thank you :-)

Yesterday I spent several hours with a local group I belong to called The Ladysmiths. This month we met at my friend (and smithing extraordinaire) Sandra Z.'s studio. She introduced us to fold forming, a really tedious technique that proves beautiful outcomes! There is a link to the Ladysmiths blog along my right column.

Today Ginger graduates from puppy class (knock on wood) and we hope to move her to the next level. She's becoming a barker. I'm not sure what to to about this, I'll ask the trainer. If you have suggestions please feel free to leave them.

Hoping to add a new design to my shop soon. A simple walk with Ginger, looking at the dry winter foliage has inspired something inside of me. (good times)

I miss the warm sunny Florida skies. Coping with staying busy and enjoying morning coffee :-)

I hope to have a give-away in the near future...please stay tuned!

Happy End of Frigid January

Our puppy, Ginger, continues to grow. She could be around 12 lbs by now. We've enjoyed puppy classes with her where she has learned several commands. Her best command is "sit"... we're not so great at the others, but we're getting there. Recently we ventured to sunny Florida for a vacation with our daughter. Ginger was in a puppy hotel and she loved it. It was her first time actually socializing with other dogs. This week we're getting back into our walking routine, and she has to go outside more than when we were in FL.

Enjoying sunny Florida with daughter

Father and Daughter, every day was sunny! :-)

We saw several stingrays, first time for all of us

Ginger was pretty much passed out from Playtime when I picked her up. She's slowly getting back into our routine.

I currently am working on a setting for a stone I procured from Terry's shop on Etsy - LostSierra
Coming soon!!!

Utah Yellow Cat Mine Jurassic Petrified Redwood Limb Cast w Amethyst Druzy Banded Agate & Barite Crystals 

I have created a pretty bezel setting for it an will have it ready by this weekend.


My previous large piece I made from one of Terry's cut stones sold very fast.


Take Me To The River Necklace in Turquoise 

  every part of this piece was hand smithed by me, including the looped chain and bale. It was a joy to make. I was thrilled to see it sell so fast. Thank you sweet customer :-)
