Some of my favorite cold weather pieces are knitted cardigans with no buttons, or any type of fasteners in front.

I have been meaning to create a pair of earrings that would be too beautiful not to attract attention to themselves. I know I have made some that were very nice looking, and with pretty stones, too. But the more I work on improving my skills, the more I am tempted to venture into new …View full post
When I first started making wire jewelry, I thought that I was very good at what I ended up creating. And don’t get me wrong, I still think I was good. But what I did back then was much simpler and less labor intensive than what I am doing now. And I am hoping this …View full post
