Back to Work

It's surprising what a change in weather does for your mood. Now that we've had a little rain and the nights are cooling off, I'm starting to look to look at working on some new projects. Which means I should also do something about clearing more room for storage. (See more on this at the end of the posting.)

Earlier this week I did a photo shoot in the garden of some of the pieces that had yet to be catelogued. Here's a preview of some of my most recent work. This one is a sweet teardrop pendant on a vintage brass chain. Turned it into a set with a pair of matching earrings but you won't find it on the BUY BLING
pages -- it's already sold.

But there are at least a half dozen new necklaces if you're in the mood to browse. Enjoy.

More about making room: I'll be gearing up for a jewellery 
party sometime early September. If you're in the Ottawa area and would like to come, please get in touch by email.

Have a good weekend.


You have to start somewhere

Q. When does a hobby stop being a hobby?
A. When you no longer continue the activity for pure enjoyment.

That being said, I’m a hobbyist who enjoys creating. My current interest is mostly jewellery – glass beads, metal, natural stone and minerals. I get a kick learning a technique or working with a medium I haven’t tried before. The problem is what do I do with all the items I’ve made. My solution is this blog.

I’d rather see the bracelets, necklaces et al find a home with someone who will enjoy wearing them as much as I did making them. If I can cover my costs as well, then I can afford to keep trying new projects without going broke. Sounds good in theory. Hope it works.

Look forward to hearing from you by email if you see something you like or have questions.
