It is Wednesday, my youngest is back in preschool, and now I am back to work at my jewelry desk. I had a little tidying up to do first, but it felt good. I made several charms for Art & Soul and completed this charm bracelet....it is for those that love pink.



I also made this resin filled bezel out of PMC. Lisa Blackwell of ZoaArts made the key out of PMC. Isn’t it cute? I wear this on a long chain and love the feel and weight. I am currently making a large oval bezel. Not sure if I will fill it our sell at Art & Soul for someone else to fill with their own treasures. The oval one is just over an inch...so you could get a nice collage inside.


And for those that collect Sally Jean charms, here is a charm necklace I made with handforged sterling silver last summer...I need to add some more charms that I have collected over the year, but it wears well now. Make yourself a chain and hang them all on...this is definitely a conversation starter. Yes...I want all my friends to be wire addicts like me.


So I am trying to figure out how my art and life all fit together. I want to try and make my art my work...not just to break even...thinking of my business plan and this quote seemed to sum it up:

"Every day you sit back and wait for something to happen is another day lost." Jennifer Flavin

I understand where you're coming from. My baby just started 1/2 day kindergarten and this year has been all about reclaiming my life. It's been a slow process but I seem to have some direction now. I love your jewelery. I'd love to get my hands on one of those bracelets.
