my master's classes are slowing down, so i had time to make a few jewelry creations this week that are now in my etsy store.  a necklace i really like is in the works, but i keep taking it apart so i can get it just right.  hopefully i'll have it done by the end of the week...  this first necklace already sold, i love it, so vintage looking.   what do you think?

holy ukelele, sophie madeleine was blogged about on one of my favorite blogs, cakies and i checked her out on youtube, heard this song and was sold.  she's just so sweet and whimsical with that ukelele.  what do you think?  you can download her album here  for $5 minimum (name your price)

paul's parents were here this week and his mom brought this train wreck below for me to make wearable.  yes, that giant turquoise chunk is on the side of the necklace, asymmetrical jewelry at it's worst? 
paul's mom typically likes chunky pendants, so i made her this quick necklace with that gigantic turquoise bead.  reworking one piece of jewelry into something new is one of my favorite things to do.  do you have any jewelry that you need to be reworked?

it's the weekend.  a three day weekend in fact and i am almost finished with my homework!  i feel a profound sense of freedom as the sun is shining, my patio door is open, and the fresh air feels lovely.  i made a trip to the bead store and i have lots of ideas floating through my head....  but then i spotted this on etsy.
aren't they so very pretty?  and perhaps so very makeable?  i just got this great little ceramic cutter that i was planning on using to cut designs out of fabric, but i think i might try it for this to cut some pretty designs in paper...  and all i need is fabric and a hole punch, right?   hmmm....  if i get one made, i'll put up a tutorial....
