Just have to show this off!

Kelly Baldwin of KellyBaldwinDesigns made this stunner, and wow is it pretty on my finger!  I adore the details she adds to her designs, such as ruffled edges, asymmetrical ring shanks, roughly buffed finishes....all things that make her work really stand out.  I just love how she stamped "BEAUTY" on the back of this sterling silver and amazonite is right!  Kelly, you are a true artist!  She made my son's day when he discovered the bubbles/wand she included in the packaging.  New favorite Etsian, indeed!

At last! Bridesmaid order is finished!

I've wire wrapped and hand polished until I have blisters but wow, these pieces are gorgeous!  They are for an October wedding, paired with silvery gray/brown bridesmaid dresses - you might call it a gunmetal color.  The bride contacted me through Etsy after finding my "Arnold Palmer" necklace.  I was SO flattered that not only did she like the necklace, but wanted 6 of them for her big day.  How exciting!  I hope to do more orders like these very soon, hint hint......  

Ashley - thank you, thank you for giving me this opportunity.  Congrats!
