New Jewelry

Here are a couple of new pieces I made. They're sterling silver and amazonite with pearls and Swarovski crystals. I have a craft show to do tomorrow and if they don't sell there I'll put them up on Etsy. Wish me luck!!

Look Out Grass

Hubby finally got his new toy today. He has been wanting a riding mower since we moved here a year ago. We only have a 1/4 acre---not much land. Trimming it with a pair of shears would probably do the trick. He settled for a regular old power mower because I discouraged him from getting the more expensive riding mower. Well, after a year of watching him look longingly at every riding mower I thought if he wanted it that much he really should get it. He cut the grass today and looked so HAPPY.

Easy to please........

My maiden voyage

So, this is it! My first attempt at blogging. A little about me. I'm a jewelry maker and mixed media artist. As you can see from my widget I've started selling my jewelry on ETSY.

I was a dental assistant for 23 years and have been making jewelry for about 15 years. So, with my family giving me a lot of encouragement I quit my job and hubby and I moved to another state to be near said family.

Now, 1 year later I've never looked back. Fortunatly, my DH supports my decision to become a STARVING ARTIST and supports me while I'm trying to build my business. He WAS retired--and now he's just tired since he's gone back to work until I hopefully start making a go of it.

I hope you enjoy hearing about the trials and tribulations of this fledgling artist. I'll try to post on a regular basis and make it as interesting as I can.

I've been trying to get better at photography so I'll be posting photos too. Let me know what you think....
