I've been a jewelry-making girl these days!
In fact, it's been kind of hard to stay out of my studio.
And that's a good thing!
And, I've two more pieces I will finish up this morning and list in my Etsy Shop.
Wishing you all a fab Tuesday!

I'm published!! Imagine that!! It's the first time my jewelry has been published and I'm thrilled to death! It's in the January/February of Jewelry Affaire magazine, published by Sommerset Publishing.
This is the one and only photo and the necklace has already sold, but still! I'm a happy girl!
And, as promised, here are some photos of my new studio!
I still have more work to do, but I'm getting there!
And, finally, I listed a new necklace in my Etsy Shop today:
In honor of all my sampler friends!!
Have a great day!!

My new design - London Zoo - coming very soon!
The charts are being printed now and should be ready for pick up early next week. This piece was truly a labor of love! I'll keep you posted on when the charts are available!
How could I possibly go so long without posting? I can't imagine!!
It's been SUCH a busy time for me. I've been designing, making jewelry, moving, and getting settled back in my beloved Pennsylvania.
Here's another sampler, recently published, I've yet to share with you here:
This is Dearie and Darling, released a few weeks ago.
Some jewelry of late. Still available in my Etsy shop: www.frenchsentiments.etsy.com
What else??? We had a gorgeous, gorgeous last week weather wise. In the 70's each and every day. It was such a wonderful sneak peek of Spring. It will be a bit cooler now, but I loved each and every moment of that glorious week!
Oh.....I didn't do the Nashville Market this year, which was totally disappointing. My move back to Pennsylvania was happening at the same time and I just couldn't get ever
I'll be back soon with info on the new London Zoo design, and with photos of my new studio and with whatever else I can think of!

Christmas is definitely here on Broadway! I have a real tree this year, instead of the two smaller artificial trees I used last year on either side of the mantle. I like the real tree sooooo much better. It smells wonderful and feels so much more home-y!
I'll try not to bore you with photos of the same things you saw last year. I'll just show you what's different this year. And there's really not too much that's different. You know how you kind of do the same thing year after year? I tried to do a few new things, but basically, it's pretty much the same.
I had to do some furniture re-arranging to make the tree work in the front of the living room. I kind of like the new lay-out, but will have to see if I still like it once the tree is gone.
A sweet and simple peg-rack in my bedroom.
My antique "jewelry box"....it's very empty!!
The kitchen sink!
A vintage snowman, under glass...
Vintage santas, also under glass.
That's about it! Not too much. Lots of greens everywhere. Not a single gift wrapped, or a cookie baked. But I'll get there.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
