Watching Camo Kitty try to catch the fish....she sits in the chair near their tank and watches them ever so closely. When she feels she has the upper advantage she POUNCES hitting her head against the glass.

Embarrassed she then runs from the room making whimpering noises, only to return a few minutes later to try agai

Memorial Bracelets

Last summer a friend approached me about making a memorial bracelet for her to remember her horse who had recently passed over the rainbow bridge.  She knew that I made jewelry some of which was hand woven so believed  that I had the skills necessary to pull off the job. 

That is how I got my start in creating these memorial pieces for the owners who were left behind.  I found in making the piece for my friend  that it is a spiritual thing. I had the opportunity to have met  her horse, Giggles, shortly before she passed, and had heard stories about her. Thinking about the stories as I wove the bracelet made her come back to life in my mind. 

Memorial Bracelet Giggles
Made from Mane hair

Memorial Bracelet Winston and Sequoia
Memorial Bracelet Winston and Sequoia
Made from Tail Hair
It is my prayer that wearing it will bring those happy memories to the mind of the wearer and put a smile on their face.

I am now offering my services to horse owners  to make these special bracelets.  I make them using all Sterling Silver and Silver plated findings. I add gemstones of your choosing  to each bracelet  for that added touch. Perhaps you want colors that were associated with your horse in life, or you have a favorite gemstone that you like.  The cost of making these start out at $50 to be paid up front to cover cost of  added materials and labor.   Contact me at to make arrangements to order your special remembrance piece. 

I do have bracelets made up and ready for order for those who do not have a horse but want to own some of this amazing jewelry.  Here is a piece currently listed in my Artfire shop

Buyers Wanted.... No Experience Necessary!!

      As an artisan I LOVE to create things.  I never know from day to day exactly what will come out of my creative moods. Sometimes I am disappointed and frustrated with what the end result of hours of work is, and other times I am amazed at what has appeared seemingly by itself, in front of my eyes.
      Part of being an artist is the wanting to share with others the beauty that I have been blessed to create. As a child I would make things and give them away for the joy of giving.  As an adult I  still enjoy giving things away, but have found that in order to purchase the supplies I need to create items I need  to sell my craft.
    I have found myself the full time owner of several online shops. This is also a FULL TIME job that does not leave room for creating near as much as I would like.  I have shops on Artfire, Zibbet, Etsy, as well as a variety of other places.  Because I am only one skinny white woman I can only focus my attention on these top three.
     All of my "free time" is spent listing (ugh, news flash, artists like to create not list), promoting (sorry facebook friends for the constant onslaught of items coming at you, and oh by the way will you please share them with your friends? Thanks a bunch!) tweeting,(will I ever get the hang of this abstract notion?)  visiting forums on a variety of sites to leave links leading back to my shops.  
      So far all of my hard work as not as  of yet, paid off.   

Because of this I have decided to run an advertisement for Buyers.
BUYERS WANTED, NO EXPERIENCE (unless your shopping on Etsy) NECESSARY!!
To be a buyer that I am looking for you only need to fill these one of these qualifications. An AMAZING buyer is able to fill all four.

  •  Buyers who know what they want and are not afraid to ask for it. Be it a custom order, or for earwires to be swapped out for clip ons, or for a necklace to be lengthened  or shortened. 
  • Buyers who are not afraid of asking for a deal, (if you send me a message saying you Love love love my pearl necklace but cannot afford the price, chances are it will be lowered for you)  
  • Buyers who are not afraid to set up a buyer account on Etsy or navigate the confusing process they have there. 
  • Buyers who would rather not set up a buyer account and purchase directly from my Artfire kiosk on Facebook (too cool!! hope it catches on soon) 

If you think you may be a Buyer who fills these qualifications then I am looking forward to working with you!
