New Camera Lenses, Learning Curves, and Gold and Diamond Jewelry

One thing you may not know about me is that I was an art major in college.  I discovered metalsmithing after a friend signed up for the beginning level class.  You see how that turned out. After many, many years working for other people in retail jewelry stores, I decided to get back to what drew me in to begin with.  Creating jewelry I loved.  I was so excited to start the journey that I never thought of all the things I didn’t know.  Turns out there’s a lot I didn’t know.  But I learned and continue to do so....

A Gold and Diamond Necklace to Add the Sparkle of Diamonds to Your Day

Recently I’ve been very aware of the effect clothes have on my mindset.  If I dress like a slob my approach to the day is, to be honest, lazy.  If I put some thought into what I wear and I feel put together my approach to the day becomes more purposeful.  When I want to feel special and do something just for me I put on something a little fancier, something that brings me joy. Normally, I’m not a diamond jewelry kind of person.  Every once in a while though… when I want to indulge myself, to feel special?  Oh...

An Elegant Gold Pendant to Add Graceful Beauty to Your Life

I call this piece the Lyric Dancer Pendant, which is kind of interesting when you consider I have 2 left feet.  So you might wonder why I named it that.  I’ll tell you.   When I look at this piece I see a dancer mid-spin.  Graceful turns, flowing skirts, the embodiment of wistful beauty.  The entire collection is called the Lyric Collection because of this piece. While I might not be the most graceful person on the planet (seriously, 2 left feet; can’t walk and chew bubble gum, the list goes on.) the Lyric Dancer earrings and pendant make me feel...

These Gold Earrings Will Add a Fresh Green to Your Spring Style

Spring is finally within sight. (Finally!!)  It has inspired me to refresh/update my mom-iform. Granted I work from home and the only one that sees me is my canine supervisor but still, I need a refresh. Something new for my usual jeans and T-shirt combo. Conveniently, I’m a jewelry designer. That means one way I can add a little refresh to my wardrobe is new jewelry. Something like these earrings from my Lyric collection. I love the size for a good everyday earring. That little burst of green from the malachite also adds a little something extra that makes it...
