I started making a new designs of earrings that are super dangle-y, they're reallly cute. I've made 4 pairs already, one for a present, one for me and two pairs that I put up on my Etsy. Here's the pairs for sale, aren't they super cute?! I was inspired after a particularly long and expensive trip to the bead store. This week has been a very busy project week, I also bought a sewing machine on Tuesday and have been happily sitting in front of it for many hours :) Maybe I'll blog some about my sewing, maybe I'll even eventually put some of those things on Etsy, maybe...

Christmas is coming (as we can all see by the decorations around town already!) and so I thought I'd put a few more pairs of earrings up on the etsy site. This pair is one that I was hard put to list, I love the fuscia gemstones, but I can't keep everything that I make!

Ok, its been a really long time since I've updated my Etsy shop and I appologize for any of you who like to puruse my artistic output. Today I decided to make some me time and relisted a bunch of earrings to jumpstart my creative process. I have a few new things that I need to photograph and post and hoepfully now I will get on the ball and do that asap. Things here in Mobile are keeping me frantically busy, between the new job, a panel I served on for Space 301 in downtown Mobile recently, and my slowly growing social life, I haven't been able to devote much time to my jewelry. Fingers crossed that will change soon (and hopefully by being less stressed at work, not spending less time socializing!).

Ok, so I had started this blog as a place to write about my jewelry ventures and hopefully to help me regulate how often I updated my etsy site, but today I am posting a non-jewelry related post. It IS a craft related post though! Those of you who know me, know I'm also a knitter, a novice knitter but a knitter none-the-less! I wanted to post a pic of my most recent knitting project and my very first project that was not a scarf or hat :) I'm very proud of how well it came out and it fits great! If you like the tunic you can get the pattern for free on interweaveknits.com or use this link: http://www.interweaveknits.com/freepatterns/pdf/sum_07/summertime_tunic.pdf
I have been working on some new earring styles this sumemr as well but I don't have any photos yet as I keep making earrings for myself, not for the etsy site but I'll try to take a few photos soon, heavens knows I could use the money, maybe I should do some etsy posting soon too!

I swear it will happen! I will update my Etsy shop! Sometime this weekend, for sure. I curently have all my earring stash out of the house for a show and as soon as I have an opportunity to inventory, I'll post the new earrings and repost anything that has expired. I plan to post a few things every day, so keep checking back!
On a knitting note, I've finished the tank top! My very first project other than a hat or scarf, I'm very proud of it. And it fits! I'll have Mom take a picture of me in it and post it asap so you can check it out :) It's super cute!

It's been a long time since I've posted. It's been a long semester filled with editing, writing, more editing, proofreading, meeting deadlines, job interviews, and finally, packing. Yes, packing. I completed my doctorate at Cornell (graduation was last weekend) and have moved home for the summer. I'm hoping to use this summer to prepare for my first semester as a full time professor at the University of South Alabama and to reconnect with my jewelry design. I've been dabbling with earrings, mostly making custom orders. I've also been doing a lot more knitting. In fact I've got my first project ont he needles that is not a scarf or hat! I'm very excited and will post a pic when it is finished! For now I'll post a pic of a pair of my favorite new earrings, freshwater pearl hoops, so cute and versatile!
