Copper, Copper, Copper

So I use copper in my designs, it is fun to work with and sometimes takes on a rose color, much cheaper than rose gold. Copper has healing properties that alleviate cramp-like pains from menstruation, now that is great! It also is said to promote smooth funtioning of glands. Copper is good for the heart chakras and prepares one for meditation. It is found in the US and all over the world. Copper should be cleaned with hematite stones, and should not come into contact with water.

So I have updated the website...again. I need change, constantly, keep looking for the right look, the right feel...something new. It is almost like cleaning out my closet in some ways.

I was also fortunate to have two good friends of mine, Darcy and Alexa of Me & D, model my jewelry for me. They took so many pictures so I have something to show what pieces look like while being worn.

So up this week is a Holiday Bazaar at Parkside Pharmacy, I am telling you that place is so cute!! And then between now and January 8th, I will be working to get ready for the San Francisco International Show...so excited, I hope it is a good show.

It is time to start thinking about my new year's resolution and in preparation I bought "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin. I am only about 30 pages into it, and I am loving it!!!

Hope all had a great Thanksgiving...enjoy the upcoming holiday festivities. Up next will be....Jasper. Thats fun!!!

Curate Gifts new website!!!

I met these ladies, Debra and Mary, at the San Francisco International Gift Show last February and they were embarking, n their new boutique adventure. I was fortunate enough to be one of the designs they chose to put in their store. Most recently, they created the website to go with their boutique. They are located out of New Jersey and have created a unique gift shops.

Their online boutique is fabulous with one of a kind gifts to purchase for yourself, friends, family, yourself (hahaha). But definitely a must check out. My favorite items, so far, are the "Dream" Belt buckle...
