Peace Dove and Bible Verse

This custom design sterling silver necklace turned out really beautiful. The Bible verse is handstamped on 2 overlapping disks with a peace dove charm.

The verse is: "and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us"

A Forest of Trees!

I'm always so honored when someone selects one of my designs for their wedding jewelry. These 4 tree necklaces were hand-drawn/stamped as 4 bridesmaid's gifts for an October wedding. The back of each was handstamped with the wedding date.

Two Bits, Four Bits, Six Bits, a Dollar!!

A custom order for the new OLOM Cheer Captian! How cute is that little megaphone charm?!?!

Custom Order - Batter Up!

My second baseball charm sale this weekend!

I wonder if any of these all-stars will remember me when they go pro? ;-)

Custom Orders - Let's Hear It For The Boys!

I've been cranking away at several custom orders this evening and couldn't go to bed without sharing them with all of you!

First up, 7 Groomsmen necklaces. These are made with a 7/8" sterling silver disk under a 5/8" copper disk. Each one is strung on an 18" leather cord. This was my first sale for men's jewelry (hopefully not my last!) and it was a nice change from my usual orders.

Next, a baseball charm for #7 Connor! Hope he has a great season!

Sales! Orders! Contests! OH MY!

WOW! It's been a busy week (do I saw that every time?). I've had orders flooding in this week and it's been GREAT!! Two of my college friends purchased multiple items for birthday gifts for various friends and family. I was really touched by their overwhelming support and kind words about my designs. My sister was sad to see Heavy Metal sold because she had her eye on that one!
Another order that I was thrilled about was a pair of earrings a bride bought for her fall wedding!! I designed a necklace named Snow Drops with a matching set of earrings. The earrings sold the DAY AFTER I listed them in the shop!

Then, just yesterday, another order for The Giving Tree Necklace (shipped to Canada!) sent me to the bead shop for supplies. This design has been very popular so I'm crafting up a 'sister' design with a silver tree and brass or copper background. Basically the reverse of the existing necklace. Stay tuned to the shop for it's debut!

So after working hard all week on filling these orders I decided to spend tonight getting some of these designs buzzing around in my head finished. The Harley Davidson bracelet is done; a new LSU Bangle bracelet is finished; and a Honey Jade and Copper necklace I'm gonna name Butternut Squash are all awaiting to hit the shop! Hopefully tomorrow...

Oh! And as part of the eJAG Promotion Committee, I'm organizing a Hide and Seek Contest! More details on that to come, but right now I'm gathering the prizes and info on those eJAG members interested in participating.

....there just aren't enough hours in a day!

A Little Something For Me

The best part about being a jewelry designer is making stuff for yourself!! ;)

I made this sterling silver necklace last night. I had to special order the sterling silver lily charm b/c i don't trust my PMC skill enough to make my own (and make it that small). Then I handstamped my daughter's name on a tiny heart tag.

Custom Order - Medical Alert Bracelet

This custom order was my 50th sale! Time to set a new goal. Shooting for 100!
A Medical Alert bracelet handstamped with 'diabetic' on the backside. I hope it never gets used in an emergency!
