Something to get your dance move going

I'm in love with this song. I actually recommend buying the whole album! Love listening to it while cycling on my stationary bike.

Enjoy your monday everyone!

Vintage stones

A friend of mine gave me a whole bunch of beautiful faceted gemstones. She told me that she has had them for over 25 years and never knew what to do with them! She never had them appraised either and had no intention of keeping them. She once received them from a neighbor.
I just had them appraised and also to find out what kinds of gemstones all of them are. My oh my...what beauties. Today I started using them. I had so much fun making settings. They are quite a bit more time consuming and intricate to make, but well worth the effort.
I am hoping to have some to show tomorrow.
Right now I am going to head to the shop to purchase some chocolate. I am making an almond cake with a ganache topping. Just finished watching the "Top pastry chef" season and am all inspired to bake. Sometimes I think it would be fantastic to own a little pastry shop, but then I remember the hours I used to have to start work and I quickly change my mind.
I don't bake very often, and if I do it is mostly bread or bread related products. John will be taking the almond cake to work tonight. They seem to be all cakeholics where he works and really appreciate someone making some goodies. So, it really gives me chance to use my other passion which is pastry.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Thanks for reading!

A few new items

Hi there,

Just a quick note to let you know that I am having a huge sale over at my Etsy shop. I am working on some new items over the next couple of weeks and would like to clear some rom.
Most of the sale items are marked down between 30-50%. Great time for doing some of your christmas shopping!

The picture below shows off some of the new items I finished today. I am still having some bracelets, a couple of rings and a couple more necklaces that I am working on. Right now it is just a time issue. I can't seem to squeeze in enough time to play with my muse. I have been sketching out some cool new ideas and hope I will get to start working on them next week. Can't wait!

Right now I am making Norwegian style ribs baked in a brown sugar-honey mustard marinade...the whole house is smelling and my mouth is watering. I better tend to the stove....

Have a lovely lovely weekend everyone! Hope to see you in my shop! :)

I guess I was a little ├╝ber-ambigious with my shop update. First off all I didn't get the silver sheet that I ordered. It came to the post office this afternoon, however, I won't be able to pick it up until tomorrow. I did start however on some really lovely small pendant items. Unique, simple and fun. They will be very affordable.
There will also be a couple more picasso jasper earrings, bracelets and necklaces.
I have this intense need to create something unique and more challenging, to explore techniques I haven't used before. After all, to have a unique style is very important in this business. Not easy to achieve, but I'll never give up learning new things.

I might have a tiny shop update tomorrow, but can't promise anything. I'll preview them here first though!

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!
