Checking in.

Hi friends. I'm just checking in to say that I'm still alive, although my condition doesn't seem to be in any hurry to get better. I'm still waiting to see a couple specialists to pin down what the heck is going on with me. In the meantime I'm getting lots and lots of (BORING) rest and still managing to do some jewelry making, including the 2 custom orders we had in progress when the poo hit the fan. I don't usually blog custom orders, but these are both going to friends of ours, and they've already gotten a chance to see them. So, let's look...

First we have some green Fish-In-Your-Ear earrings to go with a Celtic themed graduation outfit. This pic was taken before sealing, but they pretty much look like this, but shinier.

One fish, two fish, green fish...other green fish.

Next, a bangle set in some custom colors. Purple, teal, and some pinks and blues.

This isn't the whole batch. Here are some closer looks, in unfortunately cruddy quality photo form...

amethysts, yarn-wrapped, glass beads

dyed shells, vintage fabric wrapped, glass beads

glass beads with a couple vintage beads, tiny seed beads wrapped to the bangle with some polymer beads by me, embroidery floss wrapped

rhinestones and floss-wrapping

That's all I got for now. Still figuring how we're going to get the shop back up and running. We'll keep ya posted.


  1. Very beautiful stuff! And I'm suppose to be taking it easy too, and not very good at it but PLEASE take care of yourself. As one o my teachers once told me. If you don't have your health you don't have anything.

  2. Well, I'm glad to see you're feeling well enough to keep on creating! That's always a good sign! I sure hope those specialists can give you some answers very soon.

    Take care of yourself!

  3. Hope you are feeling better and glad to have you back! Love those fish!
