Pink and green, but not preppy

For Angela

My first craft show display

This was outside, and there a few booths behind me, so it's hard to see, but my first attempt. The large display in the middle was a last minute...

Not your average pearls... and a question

Here's my question: I got an invite to do a small craft show -- it would be my first, so I'm excited and a bit clueless. How much "stock" do I...

A few more earrings

Once I started with this concept, it was hard to stop! All silver or silver plate, with garnet, glass tube beads or chrysocolla

jasper and copper chain, 2 versions

Glass hanging doohickey
