Valentine Pendant

heartcharm1.jpgEach year I know Valentines Day is getting close when I see the conversation hearts at the check out.  It never fails, I end up buying one and eating the entire bag.  As I eat the candy hearts, I never seem to find one that says just the right thing.  This year I cast a heart without any letters.  Now I can make the heart say anything I want! 

New Ring Ideas…

pinkflushmount-14kgolddots.jpgI have been trying to expand my ring making skills by including crystals and gems.  This new ring has a 4mm pink Tourmaline gem stone flush mounted in the band and 14kt gold dots scattered around the band.  What do you think?pinkflushmount-14kgolddots3.jpg

What does she really do all day?

dsc04289.JPGWhen people hear that I am an artist, they assume I get to play all day.  I think to myself “if only I could play all day!”.   Unfortunately, I only ‘create’  on the average 2-3 hours a day.  The other 6 hours of the day is spent doing paper work, marketing, packaging, shipping and all of the other busy work that comes with a job.   The beauty of self employment, is that I get to pick which 10 hours I get to work each day! 
I will attempt to be dilegent and make frequent entries into my blog so you can get a glimps into the life of a self employed artist.
