Having fun getting ready for the 2012 Sheep & Wool Festival with my new intern, Joske!!! New rings galore. Thank you Joske!
Yay! My 14k rose gold pyramid studs are featured in “Etsy Finds” today! Totally makes my day!!!
I’m working on a new order of earrings and figured out a more efficient way to drill the bar studs!

Having fun with new finishes for all my little studs. I’ve been dreaming of plating them in rose or pink gold for a while. Swoon… I wish I’d had these in time for Valentine’s Day! I’ll just pretend I’m 9 months early!
I love the soft matte finish – especially on the bar studs.
Looks like they’re square dancing! ”Bow to your partner…”
Don’t mind my hair *wink wink. It was a long cold morning waiting in line outside the studio, but worth the wait!
