Happy Winter!

Happy Winter friends!

Winter has really hit us (like freezing temperatures and white stuff) but we are still very much in the post Thanksgiving holiday spirit.

We've had our 10th Anniversary Celebration, our Winter Open House/Small Business Saturday Celebration, and we are getting ready for Winterfest this Sunday from 12 noon to 5pm.  As part of our holiday celebrations, we are offering some of the jewelry we normally only sell to galleries and boutiques here in the shop.  Above are some of our hand painted metal and vintage Swarovski earrings & pendants that are now available.  And as part of this time of thanks giving and gratefulness, we are donating $3. to the Kitsap Humane Society for every piece that we sell. 

So come by and have some fun and do go with your gift buying this year!

recycled silk sari ribbon-now on cards- 3 feet for $2.
Hello spring!  How I've missed you!!!

I've finally landed from a show-packed late winter and it is good to be home for more than a week!  Tucson was amazing in all kinds of crazy & biz-related ways, I had wonderful students in my workshops in San Francisco/Concord, and I have a great line-up of trunk shows and teaching gigs coming up in May.  I am feeling totally overwhelmed, but in an amazing way!  As draining as owning your own business can be, it can be weirdly invigorating-that my be the sleep deprivation talking, but as long as I remember where I'm supposed to be and wear pants, I think I'm doing ok.

We've been having a great time with all the new Tucson and California finds-new gemstones, pearls and pewter, as well as a great find of vintage and antique Venetian seed beads...white hearts, onion skins, opals and more!  New samples every day and we're adding some new workshops both here at the shop and at teaching gigs around the counrty.  Check out our calendar for more info on where we'll be and when.

Thanks for all your patience while I've been away and for keeping Penny, Jen & Kisha company-see you soon!
