it begins with a twinkle in your eye and butterflies in your tummy. you wish for it, you need it, you have to have it. it’s a little splurge that satisfies your craving. it’s something so perfect, you can’t live without it. it’s not just something for your neck, ears, fingers or wrists. it’s an expression of who you are that adds a sparkle that is only you. it’s your signature necklace you wear every day. it’s the delectable ring you wear for an extraordinary night.

playing catch up.

I apologize for my absence. I have been running around playing catch up since my being sick 2 weeks ago. I'm ALMOST all caught up, although I'm sure something will pop up that I have pushed to the back recesses of my mind.

I barely realized Halloween past and it was November. Shame on me! And in my rush these past few days I haven't even taken photos of what I have been doing...but I'm going to share anyway!
  1. A few custom fortune cookie orders to complete. One in particular I love! As a special birthday present for his wife, a man asked me to make a fortune with her favorite quote: "I'll eat you up - I love you so" If you aren't sure what this is a quote from, its Where the Wild Things Are. (I am DYING to see this movie)
  2. While working on the custom fortune cookies, I have redesigned them. There were some problems with the Fortune Cookie Lariat in particular and I'm really excited to re-post these in the next few days with the "NEW" same but different design.
  3. I am reworking my logo and packaging to have a more consistent style. I hope to unveil all of this before the holiday rush.
  4. I had a small trunk show at my friend, Miranda's house. Thank you to Miranda for hosting and all the lovely ladies that came by!
  5. I am participating in the Whimsical Wares Show this Wednesday through Sunday. I dropped off all my initials and new Fortune Cookies on Monday. Let me tell you if you are in the Atlanta area (Marietta to be exact) this weekend, you should DEFINITELY check this show out. There are tons of great goodies there, including of course my jewelry! ;) But it is also in the most amazing house.
  6. I had a custom order for a vermeil mommy and me initial pendant. For those of you who don't know, vermeil is sterling silver with a thin coating of 18K gold on the outside. So it keeps the cost down while also giving you the look of 18K gold. downside: it's not permanent.
    Because I work at a jeweler supply store, and my dad is pretty awesome, he let me experiment with a plating machine and vermeil some of my peices. It was WAY too much fun and I'm looking forward to making a line of vermeil initials!
  7. Last I want to tell you guys about a giveaway I'm doing on a blog that I follow. Sara Plays House is a great blog that is about Sara and her family. She has two adorable daughters, who keep her busy and writing entertaining posts, like her Saturday Night Art Show. Definitely a great read! So hop on over to Sara's blog and check it out, and while your there enter to win a CUSTOM FORTUNE COOKIE NECKLACE!!!
