    Martha, I knew this design was one of yours before I even saw your name! 8)

    This is gorgeous — love the “effortless” design! The soft greens with the brass are stunning! The tiny key is the perfect finishing touch to complement that fab keyhole link! :D

    Hello Chickies! Thank you so much for your wonderful comments! I really appreciate it. The pumpkins are doing great. School starts in three weeks for the two older ones. Where did the summer go?? My little one is 14 months. He started walking at 10 months. Now he’s sprinting! Holy Smokes! Here is a recent picture of them.

    I’m having a sale in my etsy shop. Enjoy 15% off from now until the end of July. :) etsy.com/shop/marthasrubyacorn

    Hugs to all of you . . . M.

    Martha, when do you find time to make jewelry ?? Between 2 and 4 am ??? Your little “pumpkins” are cute, but I’m guessing they all keep you running ! Glad to see you back on Lima Beads – - -

    I so agree with Lynn Eileen. The soft glass against the dark metal is a wonderful contrast.
    You kids are adorable. The oldest looks like he’s trying to scary the baby,who could care less,and your middle child looks like an angel.

    Gorgeous Martha! I had to sign in just to comment on your bracelet! I L.O.V.E. the color combinations with the keyhole link, the use of brass and dangles. I’m going to your store right now to see if this one is there! :)
