Simply Beads magazine cover!

Ok, one of my designs is on the cover of Simply Beads magazine!! Well, not really. But I know my design is similar, and I posted this well before the magazine came out~check it out....Dolphin on Jasper . Pretty close, huh? But it does show my designs are CURRENT and HOT! I feel validated...:) Just WISH I could get more exposure. It's tough; there are so many jewelry designers out there, so many TALENTED jewelry designers...sigh.

I have a few pieces that I have yet to post in my shop, Sadie's Things, because the photos did not come out so great. Gotta retake I guess...and work on in Photoshop... I am also working on a beautiful necklace to go with the aventurine earrings...

Here's a ring with a red jasper...also need more photos (i.e. better photos).

Dragonfly and Butterfly jewelry

I thought for my very first blog post I would talk about my favorite element to add to jewelry: dragonflies and butterflies. These little critters are everywhere these days, and I don't mean in the air! They are showing up on everything from lamps to pillows to notecards to jewelry. Even Tiffany's carries pieces featuring butterflies and dragonflies. Organic, natural elements like these little beauties bring whimsy to your jewelry collection. And you'll be trendy too! Check these out... Dragonfly charm necklace, Simple Butterfly necklace.
