An Update, and new listings coming soon

So I know I've been on hiatus for a while.  It has been cold here, and I am such a wimp when it comes to the cold, so I haven't spent a lot of time in the shop.  We've also been trying to get caught up on our homeschooling after our crazy run of illnesses in our house this fall and winter.  We've never had a year where we have been sick so much.  I think March is the first month since last September that nobody has been sick.  I'm so ready for the warmer spring weather to get here.

In the meantime though, I've ordered more of the electroplated leaves and gotten them assembled into earrings and necklaces.  I'm hoping to get pictures of those over the next couple of days and get them posted up on Etsy.  These have been a popular item in the store.

I've also been experimenting with some new materials.  Not sure if it will go anywhere, but I love to try new things.  I've been playing around with cement and resins.  I'm also excited to get my hands on a new clay to play around with.  I'll post some pictures when I have something better to show than just a couple of test pieces.

I hope this winter has been treating you well, and that you are able to enjoy a little bit of spring this week.
