Tivo? Who needs it?

Television has been getting a really bad rap lately, and it’s no wonder. But I have to admit, there are a few shows that I like to watch ~ if it weren’t for all those commercials! ( Is it just me or are there more of them these days?) I know I could record the shows and fast forward . . . but I’d rather make things. Here are a few things I’ve been working on. It started with some beautiful rubies . . .

Long Faceted Ruby Rosary Chain Necklace

Smooth Ruby Rondelle Rosary Chain Necklace

Long Pink Tourmaline Rosary Chain Necklace

Long Faceted Aquamarine and Labradorite on Silk Necklace

So the next time you go to set up the Tivo, think about all you could accomplish while watching television.

Time flies . . .

Wow! It’s hard to believe so much time has passed since my last post. And even tho I haven’t been making much jewelry, I’ve been busy. Besides making and selling jewelry extenders, I helped plan our high school reunion, returned to crafting, opened a new Etsy shop, and more recently have been de-cluttering with Craigslist.

Below are a few of my favorite jewelry pieces that have sold:



“A Midsummer Night’s Dream”
Apatite, Labradorite, Smokey Quartz, Iolite, and Gold Vermeil.

My return to crafting began with a pattern I discovered during a re-organization. This pattern, for a miniature teddy bear, was one I originally used as a small child. After I had created several bears in Honey colored felt, while adding 2 even smaller bears in the process,

my son inspired me to make them in colors. I’ve named that collection of bears “Colores” and they are currently available at my Etsy shop Bitty Boo Gifts.


I’ve truly enjoyed making these little creatures and hope they put a smile on your face. With many jewelry ideas swirling around in my head, my return to jewelry making is just around the corner. But first, I must streamline the photography process . . . ahhh, another idea for a future post – “Photography Made Easy”.
