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

Mom and Dad are Awesome


My Mom and Dad are awesome. Sometimes I have to remind myself that although they have the amazing ability to annoy me in .06 seconds, they are incredibly caring parents. I had to work last Monday, so I was unable to go to my flea market which is an hour and a half away. My Mom went instead. I'm surprised my Mom even found the flea market, much less my correct spot. I know she was nervous. I know it was really difficult for her (and she's almost 64) and she doesn't know anything about gemstones. Because I was so worried about my mom, I asked my dad to go too, who lives an hour and a half away in the other direction. Together, they managed to pull it off. My Dad sabotaged my booth a bit by putting out some of his fish decoys, but that's ok. Unfortunately, after all that stress and planning, it was a total bust. But I sure know my parents love me and that's worth all the money in the world.

Your parents are super! Aww, that is really such a sweet sentiment. Perhaps the fair's purpose was just to remind you of how lucky you are even without a bunch of sales!

What a gorgeous booth! I can't believe it wasn't a success for you.

But it's wonderful the support your parents showed. :)
