Lentil Focal Beads are all on sale in my shop, these are closeout prices, get them out of my store!

Currently I'm sculpting away rose earrings, building up inventory in the hopes that I will make it into Chop Suey Bookstore's Bizarre Market. Any richmond locals know Chop Suey Bookstore, they are a nifty second hand and new bookstore in a very fun corner of the city, right across from an ancient opera house that shows movies now, the famous Byrd Theater.

Anyway, the bookstore opens up a room for local artisans to get an amazing amount of foot traffic from clientele you readily pay more for quality and local ownership. This is a juried show and I hope my roses will get in, as I feel that Richmond would love them!

They announce who made it into the show in November so be sure to snatch up any roses that you'd been saving before then, as they may get put in the market.

Also I've ordered some supplies for new projects, stay tuned to see what crafty mischief will come about!

Yet another Halloween, and another reason I can't make it to the Richmond Zombie Walk. Every year it's the same! I recently got a new job behind the jewelry counter of very nice department store. This very nice store has me scheduled to work while the zombie walk is commencing, I swear one of these years I'll learn the date early enough to put in a day off.

In other news, I'm preparing for Halloween, I have no costume yet but I'll hit the patterns and see what jumps out at me. I'm thinking I'll dig into the Japanese trend of Elegant Gothic Aristocrat, basically victorian costume in black with a hint of ghoulishness. This appeals to me because I can rewear the costume at conventions, and I have a large amount of black fabric stashed in the wall of craft upstairs. Lots of ruffles, and tailoring, it should be fun :)

Anyone interested in Halloween themed goodies in my shop should hurry up and buy them as they will be deactivated and stashed away until next year after Halloween. I feel that my shop has a few too many items in it so I'm looking forward to clearing out the kinck knacks and bringing in new lines.

I'm off to work on custom rose earrings orders! Email me with any and all questions at

Thanks for reading!

The new rose themed jewelry is officially a hit!

I've sold several pairs of earrings of the rose sculpts, and everyone loves them, I even got the highest praise with a pair of blue rose earrings. Danilatham of etsy said this about them: "These are exquisite. I am SO happy I found them; they are exactly what I was looking for. I will be wearing these on my wedding day! Thank you so much!"

Each pair of earrings are different, so the ones in the picture are exactly what are available for purchase. I look forward to when my handiwork becomes more uniform so this becomes less necessary.Also in a few weeks check my shop for a new line of stamped pendants I'll be producing. I received many wonderful tips from MissFickleMedia on how to produce top notch pendants, and I'm currently waiting for the proper materials to ship in so they will have the perfect glazes and bails. Expect many Fern, Rose, and Flower themes in the stamps themselves.

I can't wait to see how they'll turn out!
