I've been happily creating away lately, but I seem to be in a battle with my camera. I think either it has changed on me or I can't take decent photos anymore! Actually... I think my camera hates me, but what can I say. I did manage to get a few clear pics this morning so I wanted to share my latest two necklaces with you.
I've been having lots of fun doing goddess pieces lately. I started off doing rather large copper pieces as you can see here. Those pieces were more focused on chunky and raw stones, while these latest two are getting back into the silver and more sparkly gemstones. I'll tell ya, I am loving making both styles. They have such movement and radiant energy. I can't wait to see who's neck they end up on!

Hi all! Just in case you or anyone you know has thought about buying this piece, Spring's Harp, I wanted to let you know that I've donated it to the Etsy shop that is supporting Doctors Without Borders during this time of special need in Haiti. It is $235 and all proceeds minus fees taken out by Etsy and Paypal, will go to this cause. You can find it and many other items at the store here: Heartsforhaiti.etsy.com I've really been wanting to find a way to support the relief in Haiti, but haven't had the resources to do so, so I was pretty happy when I found this shop on Etsy. I deliberated about doing some lesser priced items, and I still may, but I chose my most expensive item instead, hoping that someone will be inspired to buy it and see the money go to a place it is so needed right now.
On another note, I hope you are all doing as well as can be! I haven't been online a whole lot lately. I'm in one of my "got-to-stop-spending-so-much-friggin-time-on-this-machine!" modes. I've been channeling most of my energy lately into cleaning my studio - I mean REally cleaning it. I've had years of stuff piling up under tables and on shelves and have been going through every little bit. I have about one shoebox more of things to sort and stow away and I will have officially been through every bit of the room and should theoretically even know where anything I have actually is. Though I do find myself wondering, "but where is that onyx pendant that I got that I was going to wrap for....." Not a good start, but it sure feels good to walk in there now. Now, back to creating since my hands are doing well again:) Yay!
Okay, enough about me. Please do check out the Hearts For Haiti store and see if there's anything you want to buy. It's a nice and easy way to donate and get a little something at the same time.
Love to you all, Shay
