Fire it up!

After weeks of planning, dreaming, preparing, I finally fired up my new kiln tonight and made this piece.

It's Under Her Charm in pure .999 fine silver.

A certain little missy requested this owl.

I have a feeling this is going to be seriously addictive!

Let's take the guitar pick up a notch - you can now get it in 14k gold filled!

Personalize your own in my etsy shop. Is Edwin lucky, or what, that he gets all the prototypes? And Ronnie too (and they match)!

Cute hairs

Today we had such a lazy day at the house.

When Edwin came home, he new exactly whose hairs Ronnie's new style reminded me of.

Three of a Kind Thursday

I wonder if any of the kids will love the peaceful clicking of the phoropter lenses as much as me?

Like mother, like daughter,

like son,

like daughter.

If you are wondering where that exam chair came from, I got it for my lab with a grant I was awarded. I guess that's my legacy at UHCO.

And yes, Ronnie DOES want to be an eye doctor. . . and a jewelry maker and a scientist and a mom. I supposed I should let her get through KINDERGARTEN first - she starts in 2 weeks!

Secret Lives

Today we drove down to Monterey Bay.

And went to the aquarium to see the "Secret Lives of Seahorses" exhibit.

The jelly fish were really interesting.

And everyone was mesmerized by this HUGE tank of sharks, sting rays, tuna, shiny silver fish. . .

And a little more sparkle

I've added a few more sweet charms to the diamond collection. First, the moon and star necklace.

And also the heart cut out necklace.

Personalize you own in my etsy shop or the Under Her Charm website.

Three of a Kind Thursday

The return of Three of a Kind Thursday!

This little horse has been ridden from Houston

to Baltimore

to Berkeley

and singing all the way, "Ride, ride, ride the horsey. . ." I'd say we are getting our money's worth!

And the winner is. . .

Thank you all so much for participating in Under Her Charm's First Give Away! How nice to hear all of your comments about who you love MORE! Using a random number generator, the winner of the Heart necklace give away is Adelle, who said,

"ooohh.. this makes me cry....

I have been a Michael Jackson fan for years and years....

'I love you more'.. is what he used to say to his fans all the time...

I've been thinking about getting something like this made - in memory of him - to wear all the time..

Ohhh.. I would LOVE this..."

If you would like to purchase your own rimmed heart necklace, you can get it in my etsy shop.
