A sketch.

Just a quick post to show a beginning and ending of a necklace design. First I draw inspiration from the materials. Usually one component grabs my attention and I work from there. This case the two green beads looked so nice together I worked with them.

Then I draw out my design. Usually just a pretty quick sketch.

I gather my materials, decide on the techniques I'm going to need to complete my piece, and...

Beautiful jewelry. Happy customer.

Two Treasuries!

Holy Moly! I was added to two treasuries today! Go check them out! They are both totally beautiful! I'm kinda in love with a great deal of the stuff in them. Also, Blues features other members of my Charlotte ETSY group, Crown Town Crafters. So please (if you have a moment) go click on all the items and leave a comment if you are an ETSY member as it boosts the chances of them making the front page!

Put A Ring On It

Ring from WooHoot on ETSY

In case anyone has missed it, I really love jewelry. I kinda obsess over it. Necklaces are my favorite, followed by earrings, but I very rarely buy them. I will, however, buy the Hell outta some rings. I adore how big rings make my already tiny hands look even smaller. I love the weight, i like to watch them move as I type or wire wrap. Weird right?Just like gloves, I love how rings accent and draw attention to my hands which are one of my favorite human features. They are so important! They are how most of us create. I know one of my greatest fears is damage to my precious creators, My nimble little spinners of magic. To quote Sandra Oh (yes I watch Grey's Anatomy. I don't know why. I don't even like it anymore. Don't judge me)
"My hands are tiny little geniuses." Love love love love the owl and the Carnelian.

All the rest of these are for sale at Southern Comforts in Concord N.C.
