Someone several months ago asked me about doing small charms with initials and I finally came up with something I liked the past few days. I made these using PMC or Precious Metal Clay. They are 99.9% silver (classified as fine silver)
I love initials and I love PMC. It is a great medium to work with. I have so many ideas floating around in my head and supplies for new projects on the way. I will be stalking the mailman next week! Look for more new pieces soon.

Did I mention I Love my job? Well, I do! I work in Tulsa at The Vintage Pearl
I am so grateful to my wonderful boss who offered me a position and to the many friends I have made already.
Today I picked out a necklace to remind me of my kids (they aren't hard to remember but now they are with me all the time in spirit)
I chose the Eclectic Necklace and added some copper shapes into the mix. I LOVE IT!! I really love jewelry- really I do- but I rarely wear it however, I will be wearing this every day as it is just too cool!. The girls at work are so talented and I can't say enough good about them.

I was trying to come up with a fun Halloween giveaway when I remembered my friend
Hello Crafty had this awesome skull soap.
Life is full of people who come and go in your life, Some make an impression and others do not. I am happy to say that Hello Crafty has made an impression on me. I can't remember which soap I bought first from her but I loved it. I think it might have been Nag Champa? or was it Green Grass or Beach Days? I love the excitement of opening one of of packages and inhaling the goodness.
HC isn't just someone who throws some craft store ingredients into a mold. She is a true soap maker and it shows and she always seems to come up with amazing smells and designs. My daughter (who is 7) is a fan already. She wants to know if the soap can be taped to her face so she can smell it all day.
HC went on a hiatus a while back and I was sad and missed her. When we spoke she imparted words of wisdom about what was really important in life and her experience got me to do some thinking and make some changes myself. Though we haven't met I consider her a friend which is a rare thing these days.
Now on to the fun stuff!!

I am obsessed with Wax Seal Jewelry to say the least. I like working with alloys and fine silver- each has it's advantages.
I really like painting them and giving them a weathered look in all kinds of different colors. Haven't had much luck selling them though. I keep telling myself they will catch on and I need to advertise but I can hardly find the time to research rates. For right now they are more something I enjoy making than getting rich on.
