New Line: Stackables!

One of my goals for 2014 is to expand my ring offerings. I’ve just begun to build a new line of mix and matchable, fun and stackable simple but stylish rings at affordable prices. You can buy one at a time, picking just the right ones for you, or buy them in sets and save. I’ll be offering them in a variety of metals, with a variety of embellishments but for now my line begins modestly. They can be collected one ring at a time, or in sets of three or more.

Sterling Silver Rings start at $12 individually:

Or pick a pre-arranged set!

This line will soon expand to include various other metals including copper in various patinas, rose gold fill and yellow gold. A variety of embellishments from leaves and hearts to stamped and personalized focals on the ring will also be available in the weeks to come. I will also be adding a line of stackable bangles that include both metal and enameled focal elements. Stay tuned. New inspiration ensures many new eye candy offerings to come!

Dragonfly Pendant Tut Complete and Winners Announced!

dragonfly pendant tut

First, let me thank all of you for patiently awaiting the release of the dragonfly pendant tutorial. It took a lot longer to complete than I initially hoped. It’s been a while since I released a new tutorial and I’d forgotten how much work creating one actually IS. I wanted to use only the best pictures (which meant in the end that I took over 150 photos to pick from) and be sure that I covered every. single. step. so that anyone could pick up this tut and successfully create a beautiful dragonfly of their own. In the end, though this is a very simple piece to make, I have 21 pages of over 60 detailed pictures and text to walk you through it! I feel safe to say that I believe I have covered all bases.

Now, as promised, three names were drawn from a pool of 57 participants to receive a free copy of the tutorial. Winners have one week to claim their prize. Any unclaimed tutorials will be awarded to the next name drawn from the pot. And the winners are …. :::drum roll please:::

Christine Severson!

Emily Doubleday!

And Debbie Vanill Bobby!

Congrats ladies! Just email me at to claim your free tutorial.

If you did NOT win the free drawing (my condolences – wish I could make everyone a winner!) you can purchase your copy of the tutorial in my Etsy shop here:

Thank you to EVERYONE for your support. I’ve really enjoyed the activity and banter here on my WordPress blog. I look forward to seeing an army of dragonflies on the loose very soon!

Kindest Regards
