Getting Hitched

Jan asked me to marry him during snowmageddon earlier this month! I love him so much and I'm so happy that I think my unusual level of cheerfulness is probably annoying everyone. :D We looked and looked for a ring, and I couldn't figure out exactly what it was that I was looking for. Then Jan found the ring you see here, and I thought it was PERFECT. It's gold with pink sapphires and diamonds. I am in love with this ring! Maybe I can marry Jan and the ring.

Gorgeous Maria!

One of my customers sent me some pictures from her wedding, which looks like the most fun wedding EVER. When Maria told me she planned to wear my Ripest Berries Bracelet (made with luscious vintage moonglow beads) to her wedding in Mexico, I knew it was going to be the kind of wedding everyone wants to go to -- a great time for the couple but also for the guests! Her pictures are amazing, courtesy of Glen Stubbe Photography.

Congratulations to Maria and Jimmy!

Rediscovering Big, Honkin' Lucite

It's been a while since I posted -- the holiday season was busy, and work has been kicking my butt lately. Jewelry-wise, I'm letting myself be pulled in all directions, which is a a lot of fun but doesn't lend itself well to settling down and making jewelry! I managed to make several pieces over the past few weeks, then Jan took pictures and I posted them. One of my favorites is my Judy Jetson Bracelet, made with huge, enormous, monstrously big vintage Lucite in several shades of pink. I sneaked one Venetian glass bead in there too, along with some pink jade, cherry quartz and polymer clay. But the scene stealers for me are the orangey pink vintage Lucite discs. Enjoy!
