About Me

My photo

I love hammering gold, silver, copper, brass, and bronze into amazing textured custom rings, custom wedding rings, engagement rings, and other unique artisan jewelry.  I have an extensive selection of men's and women's rings, along with gemstone and pearl jewelry in my SilverSmack shop on Etsy.  Please stop in and take a look.

A Poem I wrote

Beyond Semi-precious

Lapidolite, Dumorterite, Iolite

even the sedimentary syllables shine


nutured by nature

colored by the earth

flecked
mottled
dappled

fossilized blooms

petrified sunsets

envelop me

The Crap that's in my Yard

It's a classic.

This is the 40x60 garage that is already full of crap.

This is my landscaping art.

More stuff he should. . .shhhhh. . .SELL!

Don't even ask!

I have no idea what this is. A ramp?

My husband just went to Iowa to get our brand new truck. I'm serious.

I think this is 23% of a windmill and some metal wheels.



We recently moved. We have a beautiful house. We have 23 acres. And we already have a lot of crap in our yard. My husband is a "Collector." This is just the stuff that isn't covered by snow. And that isn't in our huge 40x60 garage. I asked him not to clutter up the new yard. No "parts cars" and no junk. He really listens. Oh yeah, and he was going to "pare down" his collection and sell a bunch of stuff. I'm still waiting. And he complains about my bead mess?
