I Love Etching Metal. One of the things that I have recently learned over the last year and a half on my quest to manipulate metal as many ways as I can. I just added this NEW Sparrow With Heart Necklace to my shop today. I Love the way that it turned out. The etching process is not always 100 percent fool proof so I always hold my breathe and hope that the piece of silver that I etch is going to turn out like expected, especially when I am using a large piece of Sterling Silver, it can be expensive. It usually takes anywhere from 2-4 hours to complete for each piece and that is just the etching process, not the preping, cutting, sanding, finishing etc. But..I love the way that the pieces turn out, artsy and unique. I like putting my own twist on things too like adding a copper forged heart or adding the etched piece of silver to another piece, kind of mix it up. I thought Id share this new cute necklace with you , if you want to see more of this necklace just click here http://www.etsy.com/listing/57044229/sterling-silver-etched-sparrow-and

Sat. morning I was working in my GreenRoom on orders and decided to take a break. I took a short walk to get the mail and was sooooo excited to see that my new 2" leather cuffs had finally come! I ripped open the package and started making cuffs! I was so inspired by the colors and textures of the leather. It was so much fun adding my mixed metals to the textured cuffs and watching the designs appear. I listed the green cuff on Sunday, it is the first of four that I will be listing. This is actually a sneak peek of two more that I will be listing soon. They are different styles completely..but that is how I like to make my jewelry.
I hope that you all love them!

I am excitedly awaiting the magazine that I am featured in, Australian Beading Magazine to arrive in the mail..it is on its way and I can hardly wait. I will post some pictures when it arrives.
I am also excited to announce that you can now find my jewelry in Atascadero CA, at Admire.
I was lucky enough to be on the front page of Etsy a couple of days ago and just made my 500th sale on Etsy so I am really excited about that too!
I am now offering my (above) initial rings in brass, copper and sterling silver. There are now two font choices, see my shop for selections.
I just want to Thank everyone for the emails of support and compliments. It really means alot and keeps me going, and for the support of my friends and customers..who are also friends too. I am so excited to hit the 500 sales goal that I had and couldn't have done it without you all. :) ~ xo
