I have added several new metal and stone rings to my shop. This one is made from Ohio Flint that I dug out of the quarry myself and finished. This is a large ring, a 10 1/2 and would make a wonderful gift for Father's Day! You can find it on my website. Definitely one of a kind!

This beadwoven bracelet was stitched with a needle and thread, in a specific pattern. I used beautiful Swarovski crystals to give it some sparkle, while the overall look is quite elegant. Its not a large, flashy kind of bracelet, its more of a subtle elegance although the Swarovski crystals do give it some flash! You can find this bracelet on my website SilverRiverJewelry.

This pair of earrings started life as a piece of copper sheet metal and were hand cut into the shape of teardrops, then a design was hand drawn onto them and etched into the metal.

This one is extra extra large and shimmers with pale rainbow colors. When you hold it in the light it glows with golden colors. This one is available in both my Etsy shop and my Artfire shop.

Just had to share. I wouldn't let him on my lap and I wouldn't let him on the lap top, and right now, my desk is far too messy with works in progress for him to lay on my jewelry making spot. This was the only spot he could find lol.

I finally had a chance to make my mother's German braided sweet bread! I'm so excited lol. I haven't really had a decent mixer for some years and now that I have a really good one, I am able to start doing some more baking. This recipe is particularly time consuming as its a recipe that requires three rounds of the yeast dough rising. So, its easily a three or four hour project at a minimum. Usually, my sister makes this for Christmas and we all get to have some then, but we never seem to have it any other time of the year. I have a feeling that is about to change lol!

Well, I did it, I set up the shelves, and I organized all the beads. This is the result. I'm almost embarrassed by how many beads I have lol. I did find quite a few beads that I had forgotten that I had. It was kind of like a beading shopping trip without actually spending any money.
I did organize the glass beads on the middle shelf by color. The top shelf is split between pearls on the left and stones on the right about evenly split down the middle. The bottom shelf has the metal findings and some of the leather and suede cording, as well as beads that are mixed as far as color etc. goes.
The desk has crystals, all of my head pins, ear wires clasps etc. as well as the three drawers full of seed beads. (and yes, they are sorted by color).
I am happy that I got all this accomplished besides the several side trips that involved picking itsy bitsy beads off the floor when I bumped an open container. (or two or three).
