These are the latest and greatest beauties-to-be.
Aren't they juicy looking?
I just want to BITE 'em.
{{Why is it that everything with me comes back to food???}}

Lots of little random things to share with you today . . .

Busy, busy I have been.
I shipped out six orders earlier this morning,
along with a mess load of silver scrap to be recycled.
We are back to living in rain puddles,
but I've decided to be an adult about it and not complain.
I've been happily stomping around in them instead.

I was at the coast yesterday checking in on a store where I sell my jewels . . .
I do love a rainy sea.
The sand and surf were full of life;
the shop downtown, not so much.
But it is what it is and all we can do is try!!

I'm back in the studio today, hoping to have a few things up for you tomorrow.
I think I am the slowest metalsmith on the face of this earth.
But I can still hear a wise woman saying to me,
Quality, not quantity.
And so I embrace my slowness and push on.
I'm like an ice cream machine, slowly churning out the sweet stuff.
Still with the dang food analogies, geez . . .

Hmm, what else?
The lovely Ponder & Stitch tagged me on her blog yesterday
in a get-to-know-you sort of game.
I'm supposed to tell you ten things about myself that you don't already know.
I had thought I'd have this list for you today,
but am thinking hard on it,
as I want it to be a worthwhile read.
Thanks, Amy, for the tag and the inducement of the world's largest brain fart!!

I think that's it for now;
I had best quit writing and start sawing if I want to have much to show you later.
Thank y'all so much for being out there;
it is a lovely thing being so deep in the country and all alone . . .
without feeling lonely at all.



  1. Can't wait to see what you do with these beauties! Is that picture jasper I see? It's incredible! Have fun with these. Slow and steady... enjoys the race more.

  2. Very nice stones indeed...and look forward to the read! I agree that you have to embrace the rain, not much else you can do.


  3. the stone in the bottome left... the one that looks like a leaf...
    yep, that one! i want it.
    consider it sold.

    look forward to learning 10 more things about you. at the rate you're growing as a woman, an artist, a mom, daughter, wife and friend, come this time next year, there will be at least 10 more.

  4. Ooooh, edible yet non-edible stones!!! You KNOW I appreciate these morsels :) As far as speed, indeed take your time and follow that incredible muse :)

  5. ...and they DO look a bit tart...rhubarb, cherry & berry tart!

    MLJ: You're right. I'm coming around to the sunny side of my attitude.

    Marianne: Mother, you have to share! ; )

    Thank you Allison for the ever-present calm and assurance.

    Nancy: You're making me hungry for Thanksgiving dessert.

    TLF: So happy you stopped by. Thank you for the visit and the enthusiasm . . . it is most definitely a mutual sentiment!

  8. I really hope I still have that Whatchamacallit
    (I don't think I ever typed that before!)
    bar in my purse. This post is making me starve.
    Can't wait to see the new ones!
