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


fossilized blooms

petrified sunsets

envelop me

Not exactly sure what they are or what they do, but here is mine.  Kinda funny looking.  (Shrug.)

It's a Chore

I completely believe in chores for kids. It helps them develop responsibility and character. My son does not believe in chores. He believes in dragging out a two minute job to at least an hour. Here is the breakdown: 20 minutes of whining that he doesn't want to do it. 20 minutes of whining that he doesn't know how to do it. 15 minutes of trying to convince me to show him how to do it. 3 minutes of crying because his life is so horrible. 2 minutes of doing it.

And this was just over putting the towels away. Wait until it's time for the dishes. . .
