November 2019

I'll be in Tucson from 1/31-2/5.  While I'm there my store will be closed.  I'll be getting LOTS of new pretties for new designs for 2023!  Be sure to keep an eye on my blog to see what I'm up to in Tucson.  I'll also be posting on my instagram and Facebook pages.

I'm working on new earring designs that will head up to the Art of the Holiday show, though they may make a brief pit stop here in my shop to give my favorite customers first dibs :)  Here are the crackle enamel pairs I made.  Some will dangle off ear wires, others will dangle below a gemstone or artisan lampwork bead.
