My Latest Creations

Please forgive me but this is a completely business related post. As a follow up to a previous post in which I sheepishly admitted to you all that I am now a complete and total Twilight fan, and of course am totally infatuated with Edward Cullen (both the character and Rob Pattinson) ;) haha, I thought that I would share with you all some of the newest items that I have created as a result. Each of these new items are inspired by passages from the book. If you are curious there are detailed descriptions of what inspired each one in my shop descriptions for each item.

First we have my New Moon ring!

Then the Renesmee ring

And of course I have to give a little credit to the wolves. So this is my Wolfpack ring, each stone represents the coat color of a member of the original pack that is introduced to us in New Moon.

(I haven't listed this one yet in my shop)

This one isn't listed yet either but I really like it so I thought I might as well share. This one is called Edward in the Meadow and was inspired by Bella's description of Edward's skin the first time she saw him in the sunlight.

I have also added several other items that are totally non-Twilight related so if you want to take a look feel free. I hope you like these newest creations. Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know if you give them a thumbs up or a big ol' thumbs down.

Have a great Saturday!

Ok. Finally, I have posted a few new items. I know, I know it took forever. But remember I'm still not feeling one hundred percent and I'm going as fast as I can. That is one of the worst things about this health issues thing. My mind still races with new designs and ideas but my body doesn't always want to cooperate and let me make those ideas tangible. Anyway, they are there and believe it or not there are some more waiting to be listed. Yeah, wow I can't believe it either. LOL.

I also want to share with you all a new internet radio that I found. Most of you may already know about this but for those who don't you might like it. I have my computer in my design studio and I really like to tune in to it while I'm making things. It helps pass the time. So its called Jango and its totally free. You have to register of course but then you can sort of design your own station with all the artists that you like or add particular songs. It also nice cause you can have more than one station so if you are like me and have an eclectic taste in music you can have a rock station and an easy listening oldies station and of course a country station for those days when you just have to hear about someone elses horrible life circumstance.... ;) (snickers) just kidding i really do like country music some days. So anyway here is the link:

I really hope you all enjoy it. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I know I got a visit from my mom and aunts and they brought my neices to see me. The youngest one is about 18 months old and she really loved it. She just bounced and danced then of course she had to "play" my roommates guitar and my keyboard and of course then she moved to the drum set. Needless to say we had a great jam session. They are so much fun at that age. My older neice who's 12 also thinks it cools but she is much more into it ya know.

Well I guess thats all for now. Catch ya on the flip side.

Ok I Admit It I'm A Closet Twilighter

So in yesterdays post I mentioned that I had been doing some reading during my recuperation time. Well today I am going to let you in on my embarrassing secret....I am a total Twilight junkie. Honestly, I have no idea how it happened. I watched the movie on my cable On Demand channel one afternoon because let's face it it is summer and their is absolutely nothing to watch right now. Of course after seeing the movie I was a little smitten with the "beatiful" Cullen clan (blushes), but the story between Bella and Edward really got my curiosity stirred up so I had to find out more. So I hit the internet and was totally overwhelmed by the sheer number of Twilight related sites. I eventually stumbled upon Stephenie Meyer's site and after reading the back story about how the books came about I decided to at least read the first one. I mean let's face it, the book is always better than the movie right? So my friend picked me up a copy of Twilight and thus was my rapid decent into Twilight Saga madness born. Within a week I had read all four of the books and had started re-reading Twilight again.

I sheepishly admit that the books have inspired me to come up with many jewelry design ideas. I must give Stephenie kudos for her ability to paint a picture with words. Her descriptions of the colors related to certain scenes in the book have been a great inspiration in particular. So look for some Twilight inspired pieces coming soon. And here is an inside scoop for those of you who are reading this, because I haven't completely come to terms with my Twilight obsession yet (because let's face it, I am not a hormonally driven adolesent and therefore it is a bit embarrassing to admit) I will not have a separate Twilight section in my shop. So if you are interested in seeing my inspired creations the best way to do so will be to go to my ETSY shop and in the search bar at the top of the shop type in the word Twilight. This will return a page of all of my listings containing this tag. As of this post I don't have anything listed but I hope to have a few things up over the weekend.

Ok so thats enough embarrassing confessions for now. Let me just leave you with a couple of cool links.

Stephenie's site:

Rob Pattinson sings too:

Trying to Make a Comeback

Hi everyone. Surprise, I didn't drop off the face of the earth or kick the bucket...yet. I didn't even realize it had been so long since I last posted anything. It has been a crazy few months but I am slowly and steadily trying to get back into the swing of things after a long forced hiatus from my ETSY shop and pretty much anything else related to the virtual world. Health wise things are slowly (I'm talking disabled snail type of slow) steadying out. I still don't have any "real" answers as to what caused this flare up. I guess "it is what it is". Anyway, I was surprised to see that I gained some followers during my time out....hmmm.....I wonder if that is a subtle way for the universe to tell me to keep quiet. LOL.

Well, here I am regardless. I would like to thank all of you who have continued to follow my pitiful attempt at a little blog and all of the newcomers. I really do appreciate it. For those of you who have also been checking on my ETSY shop from time to time, thank you. I apologize for the stagnant appearance and lack of new items. On the bright side though being unable to physically create any new items does give one ALOT of time to think. As a result of my months of thinking and pondering, my design journal has thickened so new items are on the way. I have decided to try my hand at some new techniques including soldering and soldered art pendants so we will see what happens. I also have been doing some reading which has helped inspire me so stay tuned. Hopefully I won't dissapoint. Well that's all for now. Have a Great Day. Talk to you soon.
