Getting Married!!!!

Steve asked me to marry him!!! So we are getting married this fall. He went to my parents before he asked me and my mother gave him my great-grandmothers ring to ask me with. The history of this ring is amazing. This ring has belonged to generations of women in my family. First my great grandmother then to my grandmother then to my mother and now it belongs to me. What a history! Steve was adorable when he asked. We are so excited and can not wait. I think that it was amazing that he went to my parents, no one really does that anymore.

Moonstone necklace

Here is a great necklace I made awhile ago. The top stone is a fabulous moonstone. The photo does it no justice, you can not see all the colours in it. The bottom is a hollow form that has the texture of a vintage ribbon. It hangs from a 18 inch snake chain. All sterling silver.
This past week as I am sure most of the country has had it we have had a major heat wave of temps reaching about 100. That said it makes it impossible to work in the studio. And on top of that our camera is no longer working. It will be awhile till we will be able to get a new one.

Outside the studio

Doesn't it look nice. I love sitting the chairs (if it is not too hot). And the picnic table it great to work at sometimes. We planted flowers and tomato plants and we our chickens there. It is really nice.

Inside my studio

Ah, my studio. The top picture I'm sure that you all know as my bench. I love this bench. Quinn has taken to sitting and "working" when he visits the studio. He wants to learn how to use all the tools, very cute. The bottom picture is of my forming station as I call it. It is wear all the texture happens. Quinn also loves to texture and experiment with all of my hammers. I love being in my studio. I can just be there.

Cleaning your Silver Jewelry

Here is a great recipe to clean your silver jewelry. I have to give credit to Sydney Lynch I get her newsletter and this was in this past months. To find out more about Sydney and her jewelry please check our her website at
Line a ceramic or glass bowl with aluminum foil.Put a couple of tablespoons of baking soda and a squirt of liquid dish soap in the bowl, nhen add boiling water. Unless your jewelry is severely tarnished it should clean up in a couple minutes. Some cases could take up to 20-30 minutes. Rise well and dry with a towel or hair dryer. Enjoy your freshly cleaned jewelry.
