on a trip!

Yesterday I was at the Bow St Fair in Portsmouth,NH. A great time! I put my card in with a few shops and did some networking. I met a fellow Etsy jewelry artist - Megan Stelzer who was selling her wares there. Her work is beautiful and she was a great help and inspiration to me! Check out her shop at I will be doing a little interview on her at a later post!
Now I am in the beautiful Maine countryside practicing taking nature photos and I would love to start doing some little pastels or paintings of them at some point. ( in my spare time!) i will be posting some of these photos upon my return home.

boring to exciting!

I recently made a new and kind of crazy piece that reminded me of something possibly Egyptian or maybe Byzantine out of some gold stick pearls that I had that I didn't like too much and wanted to use up and I was pretty pleased with the results! Another piece I made was all around a shell pendant that I had sitting around for awhile and it hadn't particularly inspired me. Both pieces have hammered sterling wire in them and I think that is what made the difference between boring and exciting. Let me know what you think!
