Starting from the Beginning in

Week Thirty Two is a week of "Completed Thoughts!
I have enjoyed this week a lot. I predominately design necklaces and pendants. That has been my main focus in my metal work. I started working on bracelets after working at my current job as a sales associate at a bead shop. They have many classes that teach you basic string techniques and I just couldn't resist adding these fun little gems to my already existing metalsmith lines. Now… Continue

There are only 2 week left in 2009 and we are coming to the end of a very productive year. This year was full of exploring different styles and techniques.

It all started when two of my favorite customers came into the store with these great bracelets on. The designs were so cool and Ms. Margie O. and Ms. Debbie S. assured… Continue
