October Birthday madness!!

Happy Birthday to...

my cousin Carrie on the 1st

my cousin Brian on the 3rd

and on the 4th Happy Birthday to the best Mom in the world :) :)

and to Aunt Barb on the 5th...

whew...that's a lot of birthdays in one week!

for the animals

I am a big fan of you all know, so of course I jumped at the chance to donate an item to the Maryland SPCA auction -Shop-a-Paw-Looza- which runs October 2-30th. You can bid on my necklace, as well as more then 300 other items. So head over to the site and start your bidding!!

Here's a link to my item, an Amethyst and Freshwater Pearl necklace :)

oh wait..I actually make jewelry still...

yes, I know, this blog has definitely veered away from the jewelry and design that it was meant for...but with the busy year that I've had, I have had less time to make things let alone photograph, edit and post them. But I'm determined to get back to that very soon...with the holidays approaching, my Etsy shop needs some TLC!

I did finish two orders for wedding parties...for Rachel and Artemis!

gold circles and birds for Rachel's wedding!

crystals and stardust beads for Artemis' bridesmaids! (picture coming soon!)
