Wire Wrapped Rings

The River Ring
People often ask me about the wire wrapped rings I make for a local nail salon. I don't post many in my Etsy shop, or on my website because I tend to conserve my ring making energy for the salon.

But, as a special treat to those who have asked, I added several new rings to my shop tonight along with some other pieces. Seventeen pieces to be exact. The ring shown in this entry is called River Ring. Kinda purty eh? If you'd like, you can check out the others in my Etsy shop.

The Mermaids are Sewing

Sea Sewn BraceletImagine mermaids weaving adornments out of gifts from the sea. Shown is one of a few new bracelets I've made recently. I like pearls with warm colored metals such as copper and brass.

If you'd like to purchase a pretty from my Etsy shop, and get yourself a free gift at the same time, my FREE ring coupon has been posted at Etsy Secrets. Go check it out!

On a personal note I went shopping yesterday. For clothes and for bead supplies. Due to illness I've lost quite a bit of weight which means I'm swimming in all my pants, and I look kind of dorky because of it. So Friday being the day I bring new rings to the nail salon that carries some of my wire wrapped rings I figured I'd look in clothing shops while I was there.

After searching for awhile and not finding anything I liked it suddenly dawned on me that I have a plastic bin of 'skinny clothes' from waaaay back when stashed away in my closet. My heart leapt a bit as I remembered there were several pairs of jeans and a few tops in the bin. When I got home I went straight to my closet, and yep, there it was. Some of them actually fit! Are blue denim bootcut Levis still fashionable? Hell, what do I care! I'm just happy to be wearing pants that don't fall down.

What Inspires You?

True Blue PendantInspiration is an interesting topic to me. I've noticed a few patterns to what inspires me. One of them being my inexplicable attraction to the color blue. This is strange to me because my favorite color is green. Yet, many of you will notice a lot of my jewelry pieces are blue. The color pulls me into the mysterious depths of my imagination.

I think of vast deep blue oceans, and velvety midnight blue skies filled with shimmering silver stars. In the oceans I swim. In the skies I fly. Blue helps me feel free. The feeling of freedom makes me feel calm. That's it! Calm. Blue calms me when I'm troubled. I suppose my attraction is no longer inexplicable. What inspires you?

The pendant is called 'True Blue' as in my true blue friend.

Away Far Too Long

Yes, it's been far too long. Serious health issues with our dog Baer, then health issues with me, then long drawn out dental surgery preparations for me have kept me busy with my offline life. Hopefully, everything will be settled down again before the end of May. I'm itching to get back into a regular work routine. Not only that, but I've been thinking a lot about needing to blog on a regular basis.

Baer had severe pancreatitis. He almost didn't make it. He lost 26lbs! He's now on a diet that consists of only Royal Canin Low Fat dry kibble. He doesn't like the changes, but we refuse to waver no matter how many times he gives us those sad puppy dog eyes. I can't say enough wonderful things about the staff at Can West Critical Care Veterinary Clinic in Vancouver, B.C. They not only saved our dog's life they also saved our sanity. Thank you especially to Dr. Oliviera, Dr. Tallon, and Dr. Lang. Their patience, professionalism, and dedication was outstanding.

As for the bouquet of flowers shown above. They were a birthday gift from my dear online friend Heather =) I have the best online friends ever! Thank you! You all KNOW who you are!
