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

Treasury Trauma


You've done the math. . .it's 3:17am and and in two minutes Treasury West will be down to 222 lists. Your heart starts pounding in your chest. Your palms start to sweat. You hit refresh one last time even though you know you don't have to. Now there is one minute left and it seems to go on for an eternity. You want to hit refresh again, but you resist the urge because you might miss your opportunity. You think to yourself, "It must not be going to work this time." You begin clicking madly on little area where you know the little box should open. Finally, after what seems like five minutes, the box appears and your mind goes blank. You were so focused on getting a treasury, you forgot to think about a theme or a title. You heart starts pounding even faster because you know if you don't think fast enough, the little box will disappear. Finally, you think of a title and better yet, a subtitle, and begin your search for appropriate items. Whew!
