I am really enjoying my new work area, not to mention a little time off from my job :)  Here are some earrings I made for my etsy shop and today was photos and posting all day.

While some of us just slept in our favorite little bed...


This is from Barbara Lewis you have to check out this amazing book and get a chance to win these fabulous beads:  Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry this is the link to amazon, it was already on my wish list.

I'm giving away a set of beads (valued at over $75).  The best part is that you get to pick your color.  Just let us know if you want them as they are ... or possibly in pink, red, dark green, a robin's egg blue, black, navy ... you name it, we'll make it!

Here's what you have to do ... visit Amazon, take a "Look Inside", click on the "Liked" button, post the contest on your blog and become a follower ... if you aren't already. :-)   But don't forget to come back here and leave a comment on my blog so I can enter you in the drawing. We'll be announcing the winner next Tuesday at this time!

I love giving gifts ... and thank you in advance for helping me to get the word out about my book.   :-)

YEA!!! I have my very own work space

I have been looking into getting a jewelers bench but just was not sure what I really wanted or needed.  Well the other day while out shopping I made a wrong turn and came across a thrift store.  I found this old vanity that someone revamped  into a nice solid table hence my perfect new work space.  The top extends out which is great for my clamp-on tools, large drawers, metal edge so no roll-aways, very heavy no wobbles when hammering and even a cubby for a bead tray. 

I am loving this $28.00 bargin...

My old work space :(
