Sweet Available Hound

Have to share this sweetie with you.  Her name is Ree and she is a total doll!  She's at my house being cat tested, and so far so good...  How can you resist this face?
 She's got a great smile too, is smiling most of the time.
Showing off her greyhound moves 
Happy happy!
OK, she's sniffing the house, yet she also manages to look elegant...  ;-)
Loves children...
And REALLY loves big fluffy dog beds!
She's so appreciative of being in a house!  When we first turned on the TV, she was like, "What is this strange magical box?!"  Very adorable to see her experience the comforts of being part of a loving home!  If you'd like to be her forever home please contact Greyhounds Unlimited at

New Listings...

I've been photographing jewelry and will be listing more over the next week.  I ship using Priority Mail, so to be safe I'm asking everyone to have their orders in and paid by December 18th in order to ensure Christmas delivery...

Here are a couple of the newest listings:

Will post more later, have a busy weekend of shows ahead...

I'm In Love...

OK, have to share this.  I cat test for my greyhound group, and I have the SWEETEST foster right now...

He's a big teddy bear and loves to snuggle.  He wants to be in contact with you, whether it's resting his head on your lap or leaning against you.  If you're standing up and not paying attention to you, he'll come up behind you and put his head between your knees. 

It's the cutest thing!  Very endearing.  :-)  Some home will be VERY lucky to have this great guy!!!

New On Etsy...

I've listed all of the Swarovski crystal greyhound bracelets on Etsy.  These were really popular at Dewey!  Here's a sneak peak:

Stamping Central

I'm so excited to have my new workbench up!!!  This is where I'll be able to do all my handstamping and cutting of sheet metal.  I got to play "Handy Manny" and put this baby together!  So what started as this:

is now the finished product:

It's nice and sturdy, and really heavy duty!  LOVE it!!!

Of course, heavy is key here...  You build the darn thing up-side down, and she-woman that I am, I decided to lift it upright all by myself.  That was Tuesday night.  Wednesday morning I woke up and my back was killing me.  Dumb move.  So after most of last week on a heating pad with muscle relaxers and heavy duty ibuprofen, I'm finally feeling almost human again. :-)

Getting a few more items listed today.  I have the photos taken, that's half the battle.  My goal is to have everything that's photographed up by the end of the week.

Listing Away

S-l-o-w-l-y getting things listed on my website...  Really wishing my photography skills were more polished!  Everything from Dewey will be making it on-line over the next month.  Today I'll even be listing one of my hand-stamped pieces, some earrings. 

I'm very excited, I have a new table that I'll be building today!  It's very sturdy - at least it seemed that way in IKEA - so should make the stamping WAY easier...

As a side note, are any of you taking your greys trick or treating?  I think Starry, our newest grey, will be joining us on the rounds.  Mostly because he doesn't like being left home...  :-)  He's got a GORGEOUS pumpkin collar to show off...  OK, you KNOW I'll be photographing him wearing that today...  ;-)

Just Itchin' to Create!

I'm so excited that I'm going to be able to work in the studio today!!!  Things have been pretty hectic since I returned from Dewey.  Translation - unpacking and laundry.  :-)  But I'm finally going to get a chance to work on jewelry today!  So thank you for your patience, I'll be filling those orders from Dewey.  Plus I will be starting to photograph all of my Greyhound pieces and putting them on the website, so please keep checking...

It's Time!!!!

The bags are packed!!!  Woo hoo!  Dewey bound, on an early morning flight.  It will be a VERY early morning!  I can hardly wait to pull into town and see all the "Welcome Greyhounds!" signs!

Jewelry - made and packed!  Looking forward to meeting new friends and seeing familiar faces in Dewey Beach, DE.  I'm vending at Greyhounds Reach the Beach -- come visit me at 111 Dagsworthy Street!

Working Away...

Here are a few of the items I've been working on.  These aren't finished yet, just some pendants I need to turn into necklaces...
Oh yes, and I got twice as much work done because I had twice as much help.
Their excitement is just palpable, isn't it?  ;-)  They must have heard that I'm flying to Dewey Beach and they don't get to come too...  :-(

Can You Say Precious Metal Clay?

I've completely had blinders on trying to get everything ready for the big trip to Dewey Beach.  I've focused almost entirely on getting pendants made.  Some are stamped sterling silver, but the majority are precious metal clay (aka PMC).  I love working with PMC!!!  It is so rewarding, the final steps especially...  What will the finished product look like?!  Ooooo!!!  It's exciting every time!  :-)

Need to get back up to the studio with my trusty assistant, Starry.

Will update more soon!

Well, I did it!!!  The website is finally up and running!  Crazy how long something like that takes you when you're new to it.  Any how, please check out my website at

I will blog more later, now that I feel like I have time to devote to things other than getting my website going!  :-)
