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

Craft Show Craziness

Once again, craft show season is starting and of course, I'm not ready. My craft show is Saturday and instead of organizing and pricing like I should be, what am I doing? Creating new necklaces! I can't help it. I had some really great ideas and I just had to make them. I was on track for awhile. I mailed out my postcards, so at least I did my promoting, but as far as pricing and labeling goes, it's a free-for-all. So, I will probably be scrambling at the last secong to get everything ready. I do have a new display that I will be testing out. One of the articles I read said you should have your jewelry at different levels. Well, I don't know if they will even be able to reach mine. I have this three tiered thing and I don't actually know how high it will be once it's on the table. And have I mentioned that I hate craft shows. I mean, I like my customers and they are great people, but I'm just not good at selling. I'm mean my jewelry is nice, but I'm not pushy or aggressive. If someone can't make up their mind, I don't pressure them. I feel very awkward trying to talk someone into buying a piece of jewelry. They either like it or they don't. I don't like it when people do that to me, so I don't want to do that to anyone. Plus, I have to stand up all day which is just tiring.
