Just Finished, So Proud!!

I just finished these two rings and I am so pleased at how they came out! I've always loved turquoise and my new favorite stone is ocean jasper in all it's various colors. I have some more ocean jasper cabs to be made in to other pieces also. These two rings were just posted to my Etsy store.


Ocean Jasper

"The hazy, cloudless skies of Indian Summer. Leaves scurrying down the street before the wind. The cold shiver from an arctic blast. Indian Summer. The last warmth of the sun. Chilly mornings and glorious warm afternoons. The Harvest Moon. The Hunter's Moon. The Rainy Season. Dry corn stalks clattering in the wind. The touch of frost on grass and window pane. The smell of burning leaves."- Keith C. Heidorn

Who is Shopping Online?

As a artist/crafter/seller online have you wondered who are those persons sitting behind a computer or on a cellphone trolling your site. This question I've pondered over and over in an attemp to get them to come to my webstore and buy. E-Commerce usage is at an all time high versus walking through the strip mall and giant malls of today. I came across this informative article regarding the profile of the average Etsy buyer:

Saturday, Great Day

Very good weekend Saturday. The weather here in SE Michigan was on the cool side and we decided to get some soup from Zoup. We got seafood chowder and turkey chili plus two great salads. I ate the chowder and saved the chili for tomorow. So good with the french bread we got.

I completed two pendants and three rings. Check out my Etsy store next week when I list the new designs. Perhaps I'll get a chance to take pics of them tomorrow and post in my blog.

What I do have are pics of some of my newest cabochons. I'm really looking forward to what I can do with these.

At the top, Indonesian coral, sonoran sunrise. In the middle, chinese writing stone and ocean jasper. At the bottom, ocean jasper.
