The first order has been shipped!

Posted on Updated on

It was strange to be a little sad that someone bought this necklace. I mean, the whole point is to sell it so I can have fun making more stuff. But the thing is… I liked this necklace. For me. My precious! MINE!  Oh dear…

But the truth is, I never wear anything I make. People have asked me why I don’t, and I don’t know what to tell them. Partially out of laziness maybe (simply not wearing jewelry at all, except the stuff that never comes off, like my rings), but I think that somehow things I make lose some of their specialness in my eyes. Maybe somewhere in the back of my mind I’m feeling like “Meh, I’ve seen it. I’ve seen it UP CLOSE  for an hour and I broke my nail in half trying to wrap the wire!!” so it becomes old hat…? I’m just theorizing. It’s also true that while I’m working on a piece I tend to see just the flaws, the tiny things that I’m afraid other people will see and tell me I am dumb for not being better at (which is nothing because everything I do is 100% perfect, right?). My mom has told me no one will notice but me — and she is correct that I can be very obsessive about tiny details — but I think it’s important to notice these things.

Moving on to the actual point of this post: I shipped a package! I very much hope the woman who purchased this item does NOT check my blog. At least not until after she gets her package, that is. I put in a surprise gift and it’s just no fair if she peeks on here first. I can’t help but post the pictures now, though. She purchased a necklace, after which I made the earrings to go along with it. ImageImageImage

      Hi Luella,

      I’m so very glad you liked your necklace! I don’t have a catalog, but you can go to my Etsy shop to see what I have in stock (, there’s also a link at the top of this blog). Unfortunately, I don’t have too many items up right now. I’m getting ready to move so it may be a while before I can restock the store, but my goal is to have a handful of new items up by mid-July.

      Thank you for your interest,
