My sweet Toby has outgrown his first puppy collar so I thought I would share with you a picture of him back in January when I was able to carry him through the house like a baby.

Here he is now...I am not able to carry him around anymore. My sweet boy is all grown up. Just like children, they grow soooo fast.

Wow...where has the time gone? I have finally finished my contract job for the summer, and I am starting to work on jewelry again.

The Museum of Northwest Artists Gallery contacted me, and they are now carrying my jewelry. I am very excited about this opportunity.

I have been working on new charms and created this personal charm necklace. I make so many charm bracelets...I thought a charm necklace would be fun. Two of the charms (Bliss and the cursive L) are from www.sallyjean.com...the rest are mine. I made the large key in a casting class I just completed. I love the necklace, but it is a bit on the "large" scale. I'll be wearing this while I am teaching the fusing fine silver charm bracelet at Art & Soul in Portland....I thought having a charm necklace would be fun for students to see. If you have been collecting or making charms, this is a great way to wear them.

I often feel like a raven collecting all these sparkly little treasures...so actually putting them to use and wearing them feels good.
