So my jewelry has been going in a slightly different direction. I've been using more dragons and gryphons and things of the creature nature. I enjoy them a lot, they make wonderful focals or accents. I've also enjoyed using handmade glass opals and fully faceted Swarovski crystals.

Here's a few examples.

More fantasy oriented, less victorian. Though I still love a good victorian piece here and there =)

I've been working like crazy to keep my Etsy shop updated with new creations. It's quite a challenge with a newborn. I work when he sleeps, when my husband comes home from work, or during the rare times with my son occupies himself with his toys for more than just a few minutes at a time. We've decided I'm not going back to work for a while, so aside from being a mom, my Etsy shop is my career for the time being.

So if you haven't been to the shop lately, go have a look at the new stuff.

Long time no write!

Actually I have been writing. Just not here.

I have a blog where I update about my baby boy. Life with Riley.

Riley was born November 21st, 2010. He's almost 6 months old now!! He's the center of my life, jewelry took a back burner.

But business is going well regardless of it's priority! I was able to make a good number of new pieces when Riley slept all day. I don't have as much time these days but I still manage a few here and there. I've started making pieces that are easier to get supplies for, and easily customizable so I can make them in different metals and different crystal colors. I've done a lot of commissions in the last few months!

I've also started making hair clips. I was inspired to make hair pieces because I can no longer wear necklaces or long earrings... little hands can't help but grab them.

There you have it, that's what I've been up to. Check out the shop if you haven't been in a while! I'm still around =)
