new jewelry

Just finished a new pair of earrings today that put me in the mood for autumn!  They feature topaz and olivine faceted glass, and brass elements patinated a rich chocolate brown.  Click on the image for more details.  Hope you're having a great weekend! xx

Another new addition is this necklace...I just love the original painting, "Spirit of the Night".  She's sparkly and magical.  ;-)


Mona Lisa

Just finished a custom order, a necklace and earring set featuring the Mona Lisa.  It was so much fun to create, and fortunately, she loves it.  Click on the image for more views.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

my new website!

Thanks to the supremely talented Catherine at Avalon Rose Design, I have a gorgeous new website!  I have admired her work for a long time, and finally took the plunge.  I'm so happy with the results!  I have brand new jewelry designs with a darker aesthetic coming this fall, and this new template will complement them so well.

my world

Living in central New Hampshire has its perks:  mountains, lakes, fall foliage, wildlife everywhere, quiet living (though the winters could be shorter!).   The ocean and Boston (where I grew up) are an easy day trip.  It's a special place.
Today I wanted to share with you some random photos I've taken over the years...they are all within 20 minutes or less of my home.
What do you love about your little piece of the world?

houses on my street during an especially snowy winter....

I love the star window (see it?) in the peak of my neighbor's house!

outdoor fire pits

Few things are more magical or relaxing than an outdoor fire. I've been wanting a fire pit for a long time, and found some really cool ones at this online store.  Below are a few favorites...
