On the left are images of jewels we've recently finished. We've been working on some smaller heart pendant designs, the left two are close to nickel size and the one on the right is closer to quarter sized. The pendant at the upper right is called Spike, it's inspiration was a martial arts tattoo that I saw on the Internet, it's number three of a series. The earrings at the bottom right were a joint project although Carlie did most of the work, I made the lotus shape at the top. I traded them to her for ear wires that she makes for me to use on my earring designs. We pass parts back and forth between our work benches as well as ideas. If you have any interest in additional details of scale, materials and price of any of these jewel objects email us at

firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you more specifics, scale, price, materials, etc. We have been working steadily, we were hoping to be on our way to Arizona right now to do a show that we've done off & on for over 20 years but we didn't get in this year, something that happens every so often. It's a very competitive show with probably 1200 artists applying from all over the US for a few over 200 spaces. We're not bummed out but we'll miss spending a couple of weeks in the sunny desert. The upside is that we will have exceptional selections of jewels for our May shows in Davis and Los Altos. It won't make any difference in our year's income by year's end, we'll have more to sell at our other shows. We are interested in selling things off this blog and I'll be concentrating on figuring out exactly how to do that in upcoming months. This blog will give clients who only see us once a year a chance to see a lot of our work that they wouldn't get a glimpse of otherwise. To keep our cash flow flowing we'll be concentrating on completing special orders and I'll be pursuing my other money making modes with my monthly book sales and my computer tutoring.
