Warm weather is here at last! It's my favorite time of year to make jewelry. I work with brighter colors and pastels like flower cabochons and glass pearls. I also use nature inspired creatures such as birds, dragonflys and squirells. Check out my latest creations by visiting the links below.

Tis The Season For Vintage Goodies

Happy Wednesday everyone! It's cold her in Chicago. The Christmas trees are going up and the egg nog is in the fridge. I've been busy adding new pieces to my shop as well as shopping for the holidays. Not enough time in a day. I wanted to share with you some of my new jewelry. I have a lot more vintage to come. I love old keys, old earrings and anything that's beencollecting. It's always a bonus to re-use vintage goodies and be friendly to the Earth.  You can find these pieces in the Etsy shop by clicking on the links.  Enjoy!

Bamboo Is The Way To Go

I've been thinking of ways I can contribute to preserving the Earth.  I like checking out eco friendly ways to shop.  I've learned a bit about bamboo and am impressed.  First of all, it's one of the world's fastest growing plants.  It doesn't use agriculteral pesticides or dangerous insecticides.  There's a cool store online called Green Core  They sell bamboo towels and offer a nice variety in color.  And they are reasonably priced.  Check them out, they're awesome!
