my personal jewelry designer

I'm taking a break from working on my custom mirror. It's pretty big so I have to do it on the floor. My back and knees are killing me. I've been trying to stop buying stuff till I start selling stuff, so it's been awhile since I've really gotten to work on something. It feels good.

I'm so, so excited! I asked my wonderful friend Dian from Holmes Craft to make me some earrings, and she listed them for me today. Holy cuh-rap, they're absolutely gorgeous! I was so giddy. Not only is she incredibly good at what she does, but she's the sweetest thing ever. Working with her is a blast.

She did such a good job. I sent her some pictures of some earrings I liked, but wanted in different colors. I'm pretty sure it was confusing as hell. But she did it all perfectly. Very rarely do things turn out exactly like you planned.

So yay for earrings! I can't wait to get them :) Go visit her store! You can have your very own personal jewelry designer just like me. Actually, on second though, she's mine. Find your own :)



  1. Wow! I love the ones on the bottom right hand side. I would love to see some pictures of your mirror in progress!

    ...and you can never have too many earrings for all the nights you have been going out!

  2. They're so dangly! You're jumping into the earring thing with both feet! If you're going to wear them, wear them big. I love that they're antiquey--even though they're substantial, they don't say "look at me!!!" They just say, "I'm too sexy."

  3. Those are amazing!! I love dangle earrings too! Now if only they were in gold.

  4. You always make me laugh!! Love that! The earrings are awesome!
