A custom I recently finished

When I first bought these open discs I actually was thinking of using them for a mother's necklace, so it was fun being able to make one.

Mother's necklace in the same style as the "Live in the moment" necklace:

They aren't currently available in my shop, but should I add them? Let me know if there's interest in this one and you could soon see it there.

The view from my front yard

See that red up there? We need to go for a drive up to the canyon soon or we'll miss all the gorgeous fall leaves!

What is your favorite part of autumn?

Busy week!

Thanks so much for all of your orders!

These are the packages I shipped out in just one day last week, it's keeping me busy but I love it!

My sweet husband noticed that I was a little stressed out and brought these home for me. It's not something that happens very often, so I appreciate it so much when he does. Love you babe!

A little something for the guys

We have two Grandpas with birthday coming up. We wanted to give them something special-- we decided on personalized key chains. If you'd like to give one to someone special you can find it in my shop.

The rectangle is 1.5 inches wide and 1 inch tall. It is nice, thick copper that can stand up to lots of use. It has a lightly brushed finish.

A new design for my mom

Today is my mom's birthday. I was trying to figure out which necklace she'd like. She has 8 kids and 12 grandkids (with another on the way in December) and I didn't know if I could fit so many names on any of the discs. I thought I might do a few large circles together on a chain, but she doesn't wear a lot of jewelry so I don't know that she would really wear something very large. Instead I decided on this cute little rectangle, with mom to the 8th power hand stamped on the front.
I'm not going to list this one in my shop right now, but if you need it you can always email me or convo me through etsy for a custom listing.
