Spreading the Blog Love...

Well, as I slowly get a "handle" on this whole blogging thing, it's time to add some links to other bloggers who have done a wonderful job! My Etsy friends are a natural place for me to start!! Watch for it on the right side of my blog page!

I finished a bracelet last night that I'm so happy with. It was one of those pieces that I just couldn't get to come together in my head for the longest time...I kept going back to the beads lying on my table, stringing them, tearing it apart, trying a different combination.

Then finally, I hit upon a combination that just seemed to work for me, and here it is!
It's listed in my RubyLane store.

The moss jade rounds I bought from LilMouse on Etsy...they're beautiful.

I used a very special sterling silver clasp that I bought from BeadFX in Toronto, and accented it with beads and little sterling silver bee charms for a little bit of whimsy.

I was asked by a woman at work if I could make her some chainmaille earrings, and she liked them so much she then asked for a necklace! Wow, that's a whole lot of little rings....I made them all myself, from about 36' of 20 gauge wire. Brother, were my fingers sore! LOL.

I'm pleased how they turned out...what do you think?

As you can tell, my New Year's resolution has been a bit of a bust! Wow, is it ever hard for me to keep up colleagues would be astounded to hear that I'm at a loss for words when it comes to my blog, LOL.

I'd like to announce my newest venture, my Ruby Lane shop.

Pop by and have a look at the jewellery I have listed there:

Pictured above are my favourite earrings right now, and the matching bracelet.
Thanks for dropping by!
