Faceted Amethyst Earrings!

Okay so you all know I love purple but did you know I love amethyst? And I found FACETED amethyst at my favorite bead shop that sells all their beads at a BEYOND reasonable price. These earring are selling for only $10 until Christmas but after that they will go for about $15 because faceted amethyst is so rare. Here is where you can find them I will also be listing them in oxidized sterling silver and maybe in surgical steel also a bit later. So grab these deals up while they are there.

So excited!!!!!

I am so excited!!! I just sold my first item on Art Fire. I've sold 12 items on Etsy...mostly to people I know...but this person on Art Fire was a TOTAL stranger. I am so excited! I actually have 2 because her first try messed up on Paypal so it looks like I have 2. So my lips are sealed.

I have to show off my earrings. I think these earrings are so pretty I am having trouble not keeping them for myself. I think my husband did a wonderful job in taking the picture too. These are such pretty blue, faceted earrings and then the seed beads are faceted to reflect the light too. So pretty! God, I think I have had too much caffeine. Ever feel like that? Either that or I am a bit manic. Either one feels kinda good LOL.

Oh and I have to let everyone know that Nov. 27 - 30 all my watches will be 20% off. All you have to do is type in the notes to seller box "weekend sale" and I will immediately refund your 20%. ALL MY WATCHES ARE 20% OFF. That is pretty good I think.

Well that is it for tonight. I am going to go make some earrings and watch some repeats of Grey's Anatomy. Take care everyone and have a good Thanksgiving.


I love all thing "I Love Lucy" and Va Beach Quilter has the perfect pillow cover for me. In fact she has a lot of perfect stuff for me. LOL She has card holders too. She has all kinds of quilted things. You really need to go take a look at her store. It is filled with her imagination. You can tell she has put alot of thought and time into what she has put into her store. Here is her address :
Her prices are super reasonable and her things are made with care and love.

Okay Okay Okay!!!!!

I think I have it now...the colors. The purples just were not working and the black was too black. I like this. In truth, I think I am on the manic side. I don't get the real high highs but I just get the little ups. I tend to spend too much on supplies and little stuff. Wanna know a secret? I bought 32 Feet of this great antique copper chain for $17 dollars. Now tell me why the hell did I buy 32 feet of chain???? I just use if for earrings!!!! Am I crazy??? I think so!!! I bought this yummy sounding tea this morning for a total of $9.50. Do I drink tea very often if ever? NO! But I do like it and it sounded yummy! I feel this little engine in my that is the mania...just a subtle purring. But who knows what I will buy! My poor husband said to me this morning to try to control it. At least I am not buying LOTS OF STUFF all in one spot but, it does all add up. Okay enough of this!

Why do I tell you this in my blog where I show my watches and stuff and where I show the artistry of others? Because it is part of the process of my work. If my mind is racing too fast I can't make anything cause all my images run together. Or if I am too depressed no images come to me. It is all part of the process that I share with you. Oy vey such drama! Until next time.


New Earrings in Art Fire

I just listed a new pair of Howlite earrings. They look like yellow turquoise and have wonderful black marbling. Because they are Howlite and not turquoise I have been able to list them in my Stocking Stuffer section. You can go to this address to see more:

I redid my blog!

I went from black to purple! Did you notice? Or is this your first time? It use to be all black with a my purple banner. It looked good but I wanted to brighten the place up! Do you like it? I like it and hope others do too. Comments and suggestions are welcomed.

Look at this watch!

I just ...well a while ago...listed this watch on Art Fire and wanted to share it here as well. It FACETED carnelian and FACETED labradorite.
