EtsyMetal Charm Swap II

My doorbell isn't working. So, when I heard a the piece of paper being slipped into the jam, I walked over to see what it was. The mail carrier had been trying to deliver a package and had left me one of those slips that says he'll be back tomorrow. I had an idea of what it was, so I eagerly ripped the door open and chased him half way down the block to get my package. They were here! The long awaited EtsyMetal Charm Swap 2 charms! I greedily tore open the box, and was absolutely delighted with new discoveries. Treasures to be handled and worn. A lovely reminder of my online friends in EtsyMetal Thanks to the participants of CS2! A Charm bracelet will soon be available with all these charms in the EtsyMetal Shop, and check out the CS1 bracelet now available here.

New Work Thursdays

I have been participating in the Etsymetal New Work Thursdays and this is the first one of the New Year!

This ring is a new addition to my garden series and the first ring I've made for it. The Cabochon is a vintage milk glass made by the Cherry Brand Co. in occupied Japan. The molten glass was pressed into a floral mold by artisans more than 50 years ago and I've set this one into oxidized sterling silver. It is now listed in my etsy shop here!

Urchins & Anemonies

Urchins & Anemone.

New Year's Day we took a trip to the Crystal Cove Tide Pools. We arrived late in the afternoon, but just in time for the receeding tide to reveal it's goodies.

So, in the spirit of the New Year, I have decided to return to blogging. I hope it will serve to inspire me to move forward in my business. So even though I am a week late in posting about the New Year, I am still determined to not leave this resolution behind. So as we were too late to spend too much time on the beach, we did see some jewels of the ocean. Apropos to the beginning of this blog. So, Hello 2009!
