I am loving this earring design. This is my second pair I’ve made of this design, and I promise more like these to come. My last pair was made with beautiful citrine rondelles. This pair features gorgeous brilliant purple amethyst roundelles. The color of these stones is simply amazing, and all their facets make them sparkle!
I’ve been playing around with texture in my studio lately. It is amazing the different tools you can use to create different textures when hammering silver. The more I play, the more appreciation I get for the various properties of metal.
This Eternal Hope necklace is one of my newest designs. It’s my version of the quite popular Eternity necklace. I love the symbolism behind the circle – continuous, unending, never fading, never failing. I love that jewelry can have more purpose than simple adornment, that it can be a reminder of truths we hold most dear.
Here are a few photos from my most recent holiday home show. The photos aren’t the best – I’m still working on my camera skills – but I wanted to share what I’ve been up to for the last few months. I’ve been quite busy planning the shows, preparing invitations, stocking up my inventory, and putting together creative displays.
I just love home shows! They’re such a great opportunity to meet new people, to fellowship with other ladies, and to share my designs! I so enjoy giving ladies the opportunity to see my pieces in person, to touch them, try them on. I get a thrill when someone is able to find the perfect gift for a loved one.
These shows have kept me quite busy over the last few months, but they’ve been a great success! Thanks to all of you who have hosted and attended!
I’m hosting a jewelry open house this Saturday December 5th, 11am -3pm at our home in New Bern, NC. You are welcome to attend if you’ll be in the area! Email me, and I will send you a personal invitation!
Door prizes, light h’orderves, jewelry… it should be great fun!
