Hello everyone!  I wanted to let you know what has been sucking up my time, if you don't follow me on Twitter, that is!

I was accepted to Central Washington University and I will be pursueing a BFA in Jewelry/Metalsmithing and hopefully I can work in some sort of teaching degree, too.  My dream is to teach jewelry someday.

Another thing is that I am moving my studio space into what is currently the computer room.  I'm getting really tired of having to walk all over the house to use all my tools because it makes my production time a LOT longer!

Since I am going to be going away to school, I will be downsizing my stuff.  I will probably start selling books, clothes, shoes and things here on my blog, on the Blog Sale page.  All the info you will need to know will be over there.  :)

I leave you with a picture:

This is me and my sweet friend Meredith (of Sweet Anthem) before her wedding in June.  I'm wearing my custom Ureshii dress!  Amazing!  I officiated her wedding, which was amazing!  

Thanks everyone for understanding!  I have some bezelset stone rings coming, specifically labradorite and moonstone!  Ooo!

30% off - Big Ol' Independance Day Sale!

Happy day!!

Not only do I have a coupon code for you, I also want to introduce a new item!!

You know I have been in love with hammering and thus created my HAMMERED line.  My friend CrowandIris told me to make these hammered hoops that have the earring latch built into them.  Orignially that was her dealio but I do what she tells me because she is amazing.

I have paired copper and sterling silver 20 gauge wire with various tiny gemstone beads to bring you Simply HAMMERED.  Each different design will have a different name and small story or blurb to go with it.  Here are a few pics!

Glimmer - Copper and Labradorite
 Rita - Copper and Denim Mystic Quartz
 Wonder - Sterling Silver and Citrine
Mystic - Copper and Pink Mystic Quartz

Ok, so now that I have teased you with new stuff, these are all available in my Etsy store and my Artfire store RIGHT NOW!
