WOW! $975 necklace SOLD!

It SOLD! This lovely hand-knitted tube necklace was made using fine silver wire and 14/20 gold filled wire. This one of a kind lariat style neckalce was made in a 2 day span when I basically could not sleep and just kept knitting and knitting and knitting. When it was finished it took a full 24 hours to complete!

Well, I had to put a realistic price tag on it- I put my heart and soul into this piece. I was not sure if it would sell... I put it in some consignment stores and there was A LOT of interest, but the right customer did not come along. However, someone had been secretly coveting it and when I put it back up for sale on my website- it SOLD!

This lovely piece is going to a great home and person. Thanks for supporting my creative habits! Enjoy this Art Jewelery piece for years to come in good health and spirits!

Featured on The Sampler!

About a month ago, I was thinking to myself "Man, I am need some new ways to market my work". So, I looked around and found The Sampler. The Sampler is awesome and is one of the best ideas I have seen lately. Basically, The Sampler staff collect samples from independent artisan crafters and compile them into cute, send-able packages to buyers AND media. Seemed like a good idea to get the word out a little more on my work and to get some more creative juices flowing ( I work best with deadlines and panic around the edges).

Well, I looked on the website today and found that my fabric and paper collage pockets were being featured on the front page! Check it out at this link:

Buying a house!

Adam and I have immersed ourselves in the process of buying a house. We love the house we live int, but the neighborhood is sometimes scary and increasingly so...we need to move and get some positive change happening! We put an offer on a house last week and have the inspection tomorrow. It is MUCH smaller than where we live now, so I have already started going through my studio to get rid of supplies I just do not need. I look forward to having less stuff!

Each of us have owned property before, but neither of us has had a mortgage, or used a real estate agent. What a hassle, though I have to say, we found (after many many many trials and errors) the perfect real estate agent for us.

I will include some photos of "our" house in my next post!
