Much needed Changes and a Rainey Summertime Necklace!

How do I love this? Let me count the ways..

I love this necklace!

Been trying new things..made the chain today too all handmade chain and clasp
and the pendant by superwoman Jade Scott. It is called "Indian Harvest" Look for them in my Shop soon..

Its really nice having some friends in the jewellery world! I had a nice chat with Cindy Wimmer today. As with anything quilting or any hobby isn't it nice when there are people out there who reach out. Shes helped me on few things a lovely woman and talented too at her Sweet Bead Studio in Virginia. Shes such a busy bee with her family and her jewellery always has a bounce in its step!


Well I've left my job due to personal reasons but I was so very happy to do it! I would say I was treated badly by the assistant manager and Id had it was time for a change something Ive wanted to do for a good while now. My daughter and I have a venture in mind for our own small business and I will definitely be doing that..but more time for up coming Lampwork atleast.


I also have created this piece. The ceramics are by the ever talented Gaea. A few industrial chic thingies here and there and a smattering of handmade polymer clay by ME, all chain handmade by myself as well. House focal by Jubilee. This is called Happy Home!

It is finally cooling down a tad here in H town Houston..I savor the fall and winter
I really look forward to the soon changes!


And Summer her dress once so golden
and splashed with all of her painted colours
was now ragged..
Because she had danced so hard all that came near
her had died..
But the cooler winds now beckoned her
to lie down and sleep..
So she slept and forgot!
But the Crimson Autumn rustled up and came out to the edge
and lept out into the crisp cool Night!


Wow. Making your own chain is ambitious to say the least. I love the second one. But you know I am a sucker for anything with a key.

Best wishes to you in your journey. I like that you have a positive upbeat attitude about it all.

Enjoy the day!


The first necklace is so lovely! Best wishes for your new venture... I hope all goes well!!


The necklace is beautiful. I like the colors. I am painting through synesthesia which makes me see colors when I hear names and numbers. These colors I transform in paintings. Colors are my life.


Both necklaces are so beautiful! I hope you're enjoying being free from the office. Hoping all works out for you.


Wow! Good for you! I commend you for sticking up for yourself and leaving a bad situation at work!! I think that's wonderful. I also had to do that too at my last full time office job. It took a lot of courage to leave, but it was the best decision I ever made in my life! I wish you the best of luck in the world on your new path! :)


Erin I was out of chain!! lol But I love the chain I did make! Thank you for your well wishes.


Thank you Patti and for your best wishes btw I love your jewellery!

Those are lovely; I haven't made chains in a long time. I do remember making a chain mail bra that took a long time. :)


Aw, thanks Janet. I always enjoy talking to you...could go on and on about jewelry any day. Did you look in to that tumbler yet?? :-)
Your new necklaces are beautiful...I like long necklaces myself. I love the addition of the handmade pieces in both.


Hey Moon! I made the chain because I was out! But it came out well I think! A chain male bra that must of been quite a feat! And beautiful too wow!

Heyya Cindy I know I think it would be great to speak in person! I want to chance my focus to another look to with the jewellery. Oh no more $$ out! Actually I need to lampwork. No still need the tumbler but thats coming next. Thank you Cindy!
