About this blog

The original intention of this blog was to help promote my handcrafted jewelry and beading supplies. However, I believe I lead an interesting life (which Dave gets a lot of credit for), so you will often find ramblings about things other than beads and jewelry! Hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoy living it!!!

I'm Back!!!

After a brief hiatus, I'm back to making jewelry and blogging. I hadn't planned on being away, but found I had hit a creative block when it came to creating new pieces and deciding on items to blog about. There were many days when I sat down at the bench and nothing...no ideas. So, I would then move over to the computer and sign in to my blog, and again...nothing. Instead of torturing myself by forcing something, I decided to concentrate on other things knowing that the block would eventually pass. Some of the other "projects" include painting the interior of the house, a general decluttering of all closets and cabinets, promoting Str8 Jab, and working on the latest Jeep project with Dave. All of these things have left me feeling accomplished, refreshed, and refocused. With that said, here are my latest creations all of which have been posted in my Etsy shop.

Melon Slices - Pink coral, Bali, and sterling silver earrings

A Walk in the Forest - Rhyolite, riverstone, Swarovski pearl and sterling silver necklace

Men's brecciated jasper and hematite necklace

Blue mountain jade, Bali and sterling silver bracelet

I shot this video of the new colt and his mama, CC, this morning. Both are doing well, and CC is being a great mom!

We Have a Baby!

Ok, well not a human baby! My neighbor's mare, CC, gave birth to a black colt last night. Here are some of the pics! I'm keeping this short as I'm excited about getting over to the barn this morning!
