Well I am getting ahead of the due date on the Art Jewelry Elements reveal, I posted earlier in the week about the challenge of creating 1 pair of earrings each week. The rules were you had to use one artisan component in your earring design. So this is what I came up with I hope you like!!

                                        Natalie McKenna's Ceramic charms!! Here is a link to her Etsy Shop
I love how these came out I might just keep them for myself.

These were made for me by Lee Anne Messerschmidt, she does amazing
metal work and I know I will be keeping these!! I LOVE them. She has a Facebook 
page Wired Hammered N' Worn go check her out. 

I really had a great time making these and look forward to our next reveal!

Well I am not sure how simple it will be but the key word is CHALLENGE!! So 50 bloggers and jewelry makers will be posting every two weeks two pair of earrings we made. I sure hope you will stop by on Jan. 20th to check out my post.

Happy New Year.... now what?

I hope everyone had a great holiday and are enjoying the New Year! So now what? What are your goals for 2013? I have so many things I want to accomplish it is a little overwhelming. So I decided on sticking with a top 3 then working from there. We all know how easy it is to get side tracked so I thought with 3 I should be able to stay focused.

  1. Get organized ---- I am not sure how but I'm going to try
  2. Exercise at least 3 times a week minimum of 30 mins
  3. Take part in a craft show

I took a picture of my messy studio, it seems like every time I clean it up little fairies come in and turn it upside down. I love having my own room, which means I can just leave everything out and close the door.
Now you see why I need to get more organized HAHA!!

So here are a few things I have been working on in all this mess.

Purse charms using recycled wine corks, wonder who drank
all that wine? I'm not telling, these will be listed in my Etsy Shop soon.

So these are some of my new ceramic pendants, I got 9 new glazes
for Christmas so I had to try a few out. 

So what are your goals for 2013?
