Studio Notes

I LOVE silver, gemstones, everything associated with the two. I want to spend more time at home with my large brood of kids (4! ages 8-17), and be available to them on a regular basis. I make a lot of jewelry, sell quite a bit on my Etsy and Artfire websites, and am constantly searching for ways to improve my items and offer more unique jewelry in a way that is cost-effective for me and practical for you! I need the creativity in my life. It's what keeps me going day after day.

LOVE those fancy, expensive toys, I mean tools!

More on Sunday when I see if my torch is up to snuff for the welding of the sterling star of life after stamping the inside.  Not sure I can do it...
