Christmas Love Prints

This Christmas Season was a new endeavor...most of my female clients were ordering
jewelry for their husbands & sons....

Here are a few pics
Local business owner Justine Messenger had me create a custom celtic cross for her son, including the family's birthstones.

She then had me create the LOVE PRINTS jewelry for an employee of hers...Amber had
twin babies in September...what fun taking these tiny fingerprints and turning them into a beautiful pendant for their Mother with their sapphire birthstone, along with their names and dates on the back....and what a fabulous boss Justine is for this precious gift and momento!

I also created some KEYCHAIN Pendants for the guys with the fingerprints of their loved ones on the front and names and birthdays on the reverse....of course...these were a bit heftier for the wear on tear they will get!

KILN vs Stove!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Christmas Day

.I am such a chef wannabe..thought since the boys were home I would prepare some of brother Todd's fabulous dishes...however, when you triple the recipe, I guess you don't need to triple the brandy when you are about to the flame your sauce...whoops!
It was fabulous though...thanks Todd!

Holiday Jewelry Ideas

I LOVE working with leaves Celtic Cross with Peridot
22 karat gold/pure silver

Here are a dramatic and heavy pair
of fine silver earrings with Rubys!

The new pearl sprays are fun and fanciful. ...I use a variety of freshwater pearls and they are light and quite artsy looking....especially the Pendants!
