It's been a LONG time...

I realize I haven't posted much...okay, not since this time last year! I've been super busy with my business and, luckily, it's been going really well!

I've had a few ads placed in some national magazines: Family Fun, Parenting, Baby Talk and Parents!

Here are a sampling of some of the pieces I've made over the past year:

With love from Nana...

Here is one of the latest charms I created. It is a double sided keychain.  
Both sides were created from signatures on cards from "Nana B" and "Nana". (Just as a note, these were not yet highly polished.)

Love Note

My customer lost her 89 year old father in February, 2011. His passing has been very difficult for the entire family, as you can imagine. His children wanted to get their mother something special for what would have been their 60th wedding anniversary. Since I had previously created several fingerprint charms for the family, they contacted me again to see if I could create something from his handwriting for their mother.

Here is the result:

Raffle for MS (Multiple Sclerosis)

On September 23, 2011, I will be walking in the 3-day, 50 mile Challenge Walk for MS. I have never participated in a walk like this before and am excited (and nervous) to do so. This walk hits home for me because my mother has MS and has had it for the past 31 years. Fortunately for my mother, she has Relapsing Remitting MS (RRMS). During this form of the disease, patients tend to experience an attack or series of attacks (exacerbations) followed by complete or partial remission. Some days are harder for my mom than others. My mom has been doing wonderfully for the past 31 years but others are not as fortunate.

In order for me to participate in the walk, I need to raise $2500 by September 7th. Since I have a nice following of people interested in my jewelry, I've decided to raffle off a $100 gift certificate for $5. You can enter as many times as you like to increase your chances of winning. Each entry will cost $5. ALL the money will go to MS.  

You can enter by making a donation at: After you've made your donation to the MS site, just leave a comment on this page with your name so you can be entered in the raffle. Your donation to the MS site is 100% tax deductible. Each $5 increment made will earn you a raffle ticket. Winner will be chosen on August 18th @ 9pm (PST) 

Thank you for your support!
