Front Page of Etsy!

OMG! I made the front of Etsy for the first time!! My sterling hand stamped guitar pick, which has suddenly become a big hit this holiday season, is a hand picked item on the front page. Pretty cool!

What are the chances?

So I am in the basement hammering out over 75 names on jewelry and listening to my iTunes library of over 800 songs, primarily things like Britney, Christina, Natalie Merchant, Beth Orton, etc, with a few Neil Diamond and Cat Stevens thrown in. Well, the second I start to hammer the "D" in Desiree, what comes on but Neil Diamond's Desiree? Seriously, what are the chances?

That is almost as coincidental as when I was in Israel driving in Jerusalem, and my grandmother, who I didn't even know was IN Jerusalem, crossed right in front of my car at a red light!

At my most recent show, many customers were interested in purchasing my Victorian jewelry stands that displayed my jewelry. I have taken note, and will be adding these beautiful stands to my website within a week or so. I will have many varieties, ranging from $30-$45. Please check back, or contact me to purchase!

My beauties

Ronnie (4 yrs), Ben (2 1/2 yrs) and Lila (6 mos). I'm sure anyone looking at my site knows their names, since they are on all the jewelry!

My review

I have been very lucky to have my designs on this very hip website - The site, and my jewelry, was reviewed today at Pink & Posh!

Going live!

This holiday season, I am already scheduled for three boutique shows. The first will be November 9-10 at Beth El, the Unique Boutique. Then I will have two trunk shows at Bediboo Boutique on November 20th and December 6th. Come check out the goods!

100th sale soon?

I now have 99 sales from etsy (I probably have 99 purchases from other amazing etsy artists!). How much longer until my 100th sale? It could be you:

Packing up all of my jewelry making supplies to take them on vacation with me. This will be a job, and only an hour and a half until we leave! All orders shipping from Houston for the next two weeks. And yes, those are ear plugs in the picture, which I just puchased last week and are a life saver. Why did nobody tell me to wear ear plugs while hammering before? What?

After almost a year since my last post, it's time for an update. In this last year, I've completed my post-doc fellowship, had my third baby, Lila Francine, accepted a new job at UC Berkeley for next year, and made lots of changes to my jewelry line!

With 3 great fonts (block, script & Hebrew) and lots of new designs, I am having fun creating jewelry while I am home with Lila, and while Ben & Ronnie are at summer camp, so check back often for new jewelry.
