Custom Work

I love custom work and am lucky to get a fair amount of orders from folks who have some great ideas. This badge is a great gift from a bride to her maid of honor. I got to draw the shape of it by blending two styles she liked and the CZ was her idea - it adds an elegant touch. I am also excited to be making some class rings this year. People want to commemorate their graduation, but don't want the typical ring. What fun! So, I'm grateful to my clients who keep me busy and have great ideas!

Okay, so it's been spring for a little while now, but I live in Southern California, and we get nice weather a lot, so I get excited when I go to the market and find they have cut daffodils for sale for a buck a bunch. Now they're fully open on my mantle and they look so pretty and happy. So here's to Spring!

Charm Swap Three! (CS3)

The new charms have arrived. My little tea cup is now among friends. It's so exciting again to receive the charms - even after seeing their photos on flickr and in the etsymetal shop, it's amazing to see the work of my talented friends from EtsyMetal!
