I bought these super hot pink chalcedony drops a few weeks ago and I've been dying to try them!! Definitely attention grabbers! Made these wire wrapped earrings this morning... chalcedony, freshwater pearls and copper finished with my traditional patina.

Love the mixture of patinated copper and gunmetal with all these bold and icy blues. Iolite, blue topaz, aquamarine, apatite, crystals and mystic blue topaz.
I've been working on a website re-design the last couple days. I'm still not entirely certain what I'll do, but check it out and tell me what you think!
I spent Father's Day weekend at one of my favorite annual art shows in Park Ridge, hosted by the Park Ridge Art League. It was a wonderful weekend! I couldn't have asked for better weather (we really lucked out that all the thunderstorms missed us 2 days in a row!!). I met some wonderful new people, I caught up with my fellow artists, I bought some super-cool artwork and the show was very successful. Thank you to all of my customers, old and new. You are the reason I do this! It's always so satisfying to me to be able to make you happy with my jewelry. Every piece I make is a little piece of me and it means the world to me that you support me! I loved chatting with you and getting to know you and your families. I hope to see you all again soon!

One of my brand new designs! Cubic zirconia briolettes and freshwater pearls. This is what I do on my vacation days!
