Wedding Order

I just finished a wedding order that I am very excited about.

The bride ordered bracelets for each member of the bridal party.  I used gold filled wire ( 14 Karat gold fused onto brass) accented with 6mm Swarovski beads.


I also made earrings for the bride:

And, I made earrings for the mother of the bride.

Unfortunately my camera was stolen out of my car a couple of weeks ago, so I don’t have pictures of the bracelets and the earrings for the mother of the bride.  I’m hoping they will take a lot of pictures to send me.  I am currently shopping for a new camera 🙂


Cayman Islands

I just got back from a great vacation to the Cayman Islands. I went down to visit my friends Alice and John. We did a lot of snorkeling, swam in pristine beaches, ate at great restaurants and had some amazing new experiences like swimming with Stingrays and viewing Bioluminescent.

Our first day, it was hard to get used to being on the other side of the road all week…..

Smith’s Cove, a beautiful place to snorkel, the rock/coral bed was close to shore making it very easy to view beautiful coral and stunning tropical fish.  I also seen my first flounder here.

On our way to Stingray City

Swam with Stingrays, they are very intimidating, but majestic and beautiful.

Had to go shopping at Guy Harvey for Marlin shirts for my husband and my stepson.

Alice and I on Cemetery Beach

I had a fantastic trip.  I love visiting new places in the world.  I came home with a renewed spirit, new perspective and new goals.
