As you can see, I've been busy! I am busy learning new techniques, too. One of these techniques is hammering my own earwires to pair with artisan made disc beads. I sold my first pair as a custom order! Now, there is a pair posted in my shop here:
Expect to see more of these and the disc beads in a multitude of seasonal colors!

The other special item I am in the process of putting together is a line of travel themed bracelets featuring my photography! These creations will be offered as a mixed media bracelet featuring charms, photographs from various exotic and common vacation spots and beads. I am excited to be able to post one soon and have a few available before the holiday rush! Stay tuned for their presentation!
