**If you live in the EU or UK please contact me before ordering.  I will have to create a custom order for you in my Etsy shop due to the VAT requirements that the EU and UK have put in place.** 

** Sorry due to to updates to the "Packaging Act" I am unable to ship to Germany. **

What are you doing to keep busy while you're hanging at home?

A lot of us in the United States are sheltering-in-place right now to reduce the speed of transmission of the Corona virus.  I've been making jewelry (surprise!  LOL!).  It is also recommended to wear a mask when out in public so I had to see if I could make a mask with metal.  It took a bit of measuring, remeasuring, hammering, annealing, folding, hammering, annealing, ... and finally enameling. Here they are! I can stamp a tag with MD, RN, PA, CV19, or ??? Or I can dangle a gemstone below them.

Although I work at home most of the time I am staying in more than usual (no gym visits, no soccer practice !  :( ) so I have a bit of extra time.  I decided it was time to dig through my bead stash and find some beads that have been languishing for years and design with them.  Well I bought a LOT of furnace glass beads from Mingo and Asho years ago and still have quite a few so I went on a designing spree with those.  Here is just a taste :)  Some of these sold already, some are currently for sale on Facebook and the rest are on my website here.
