A Few New Designs

Just a quick blog-and-run today because I made some new pieces and I wanted to show them to you.  They are a continuation of my first blog post, about Making Memories' Vintage Groove components.  I was so excited when they started carrying these at the Michaels in Brighton, Colorado.  It's a bit of a trek, but it is such a superior Michaels, with such great stuff (like Vintage Groove) that I don't mind the drive. 

I finally had some time to play a little more, and this is what I came up with.

I really like these, with the crystal pendants and the text charms.  I'm wearing them right now, feeling just that little bit more sophisticated than I do with unadorned ears.  Gotta be the dangles.

Okay, crank your head to the left because, no matter what I do, this picture shows up sideways.
These earrings have big gray pearl pendants with light, sort of lime-green glass charms.  A
definite walk on the wild side for me, but I like them.

Here is part of the "Joy" Designer's Pack, used in a necklace with some turquoise and some chain.
Definitely a fun look!

Here's a closeup of the dangly charms and pendants.

And I just wanted you to be able to see the "Joy" piece, because--well, joy is such a big deal and such a big part of
creating and wearing jewelry. 

Oh, and just to end on a happy, seasonal note, I'd like to present a vintage picture of my daughter.

 Hopefully she won't mind, as she is 20 now, and quite a good sport about such things. 

Thank you for checking out the new stuff.  I hope to have more soon.


  1. Your work is really beautiful...I'm a clothing designer, but I have no skill at manipulating anything but fabric, so I'm in awe of your work here...

I'd love to hear from you, and, after getting over the initial shock of finding that someone out there is "listening", I'll respond to every comment or question.
