But I have found some time to work on a custom order for Susie of Susie Designs. If you haven't checked out her blog please do so, you can find her blog on my blog list. She is a very talented artist.

Holley Blue

This necklace of Holley Blue Agate and White Moonstone is going to my new friend Deb. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed talking to her the last couple of days. I hope some day soon we will actually get to meet face to face. If any of you out there are from my neck of the woods (Portland, OR) I hope you got out and enjoyed this beautiful sunny spring day!!!!

New pictures of Lost on the Prarie

It had stopped raining for a little while this afternoon and I got some new pictures outside in natural light. Much better color!!!

New White Crazy Lace Earrings

I finished these beauties at Midnight last night and then stayed awake planning another piece of jewelry. The last time I looked at the clock it was 3:30am and then it was time to get up at 5:30am. I hate it when that happens, it makes for a long day at my day job. Anyway, I think these earring turned out just beautiful! The cabs have lots of pattern and are accented with a deep patina on the silver. These cabs were brought back from Tucson by the owners of Bead Bullies. I just loved looking through all the pretties they brought back. Hopefully these earrings with be on Etsy this evening.

Lost on the Prarie Pin

This is the stone my hubby picked out during our visit to Bead Bullies! He explained the design he had in mind and I fabricated that design. The stone is a deeper blue that my camera could pick up in the house. He is happy with his new pin! I think I'll be wearing it more than he will, but it is masculine enough that either of us could wear it on our coat or hat. I am planning on spending tomorrow in the studio and working on taxes. Have a great weekend!

I hate it when this happens!!!!

I just hate it when I drop a hot piece on the floor!!!!!. Someday the hardwood floors will have to be resurfaced. This is a little copper brooch I finished Saturday evening. It's about 1 1/2" diam. I look pretty nice on my black sweater. I will have some new pieces to show you later in the week.

Saturday in the Studio

I made a few things in the studio today, but I am ready for bed already (7:30pm). I made a pair of earrings to match my girlfriend's bracelet. They will be package and mailed tomorrow. The turquoise pieces below are mine. I made the pendent and ring today, the earrings were made last summer. My hubby brings gifts of stone. :) He gave me the earring pieces just because and I found the other 2 pieces in my Christmas Stocking last December. They are from the Old Man Mine. He does spoil me!

Head Cold

It's been a very busy week at my day job, and now I have a head cold errrr. After a late breakfast/early lunch, I'm off to work in the studio. Maybe playing with my "toys" will make me feel better. Here a couple of pictures I took last year at our Sunday Farmers Market in down town Milwaukie, OR. It is alway a fun place to shop and people watch. Have great day everyone!

Another Custom Order for SusieDesigns

SusieDesigns had one lonely snowman earring. She asked if I could make it into a ring since it was such a cute little snowman. Now SusieDesigns is wanting it to snow so she can wear her new ring.
