i’ve been really inspired by nature lately.  now that i’m back in montana where i’m surrounded by beauty, i’m itching to create things that flow in harmony with nature.  i had a few precious stones that i wrapped but i got to thinking- what about river stones?  and then i found polanshek’s shop on etsy that has gorgeous items made from stones.

i’m excited now.  what i’d love to do is drill holes in them, but i won’t have the tools for that for quite some time if at all.  so for now i must wrap them and make them beautiful!  i’m really into the stacked stone lamp mentioned in this article.

making pretty things!

i am proud to announce the opening of my new etsy shop, whispering birds.  i’ve thought a long time about expanding to make more jewelry, but my other etsy shop focuses mostly on handmade bags and dreadlocks tams, and i didn’t want to interrupt the flow of that.  that shop has its own feel, and whispering birds will be all about beautiful, earthy jewelry.

here are three pendants i wrapped last night!  i’m really enjoying this a lot.  i didn’t know when i started that i would fall in love with jewelry making.  i’m hoping i can get better at it so i can make my design ideas a reality.
