Well, as it would seem every year, the countdown to Christmas seems to come so early... I can hardly believe it...feels like we went from Summer to holiday decorations in stores within seconds flat...personally, I like to savor each holiday starting with Halloween, Thanksgiving seems to be a little lost event at times just stuck between the time before Christmas...what's up with that?  
Looking forward to the coming week off and spending time with little ones who are growing too the meantime, I am trying to grab any spare moments in the Shedio...

 I love love love this space, I cannot quite put into words how it feels when I open the door and step's pure bliss truly.
I have been working on some new and sweetly simple designs...

Just listed these here in my wee shop

Sterling Silver hand formed and shaped, then hammered and oxidized...

The light shines just so right and the breeze blows gently, with 3 dogs to keep me company and music playing all the time...although it may not feel like it's almost December here in these hills not far from the Sea...

I'm ready for the about you?

There have been quite a few items which I have meant to post here in my quiet little space, recipes, tidbits of helpful information, the new smoothie I am obsessed with making everyday...however, I just haven't found the time.  Blogging is a funny thing and at times it's just not in the cards for this gal to pop in and post, also sometimes one just downright doesn't feel it.  
However, I have been simplifying, or trying to, many areas and one is my work, sometimes a person just thinks too hard and too long about something and man oh man if it just doesn't get done due to all that I have taken to simple ideas and seeing them through...the Running in Circles designs are a great example, sweet and simple.  Here are a pair of custom earrings a very lovely gal requested of me...soft and simple and just enough to jazz up any outfit from a t-shirt and jeans to that fav little black dress...I will be creating more of these, no two are the same thanks to these hands...I see colors! 

Thank you for stopping in...
hope you are simply enjoying your day wherever  you may be.

Fall...sort of in the air's in the air...can you feel it? Ha! If you can that is delightful, because here in So. Cal, the only thing in the air is 98 degree + temperatures and it's just downright muggy and hardly motivational...however, today has cooled to a nice brisk 80 degrees, so I shall not complain.  Not a big fan of heat over here, how about you?
My mind does however,  long for Fall which is just around the corner, and it has been part of the plan  to create some 'holiday cheer' for my wee little shop around this all time favorite holiday...yep, you guessed it Halloween!  

Handmade in every sense of the word; brass formed, hammered, headpins soldered, black pearls, Howlite skull, vintage bead, all wrapped, and put together with love to hang and dangle delightfully from your beautiful lobes on sterling silver ear wires.

 Truly, I must say these little lovelies can be worn all year long with anything from jeans and a t-shirt to that favorite black dress...I am not lying, because well, that would just simply not be nice.
Go gently kind ones...

Around these parts...

It's been a while lovely ones, I know, I know, but it's sometimes tough this bloggin thing...and the moming thing, the householding thang, everyday stuff things, the creative thing and keeping it all updated as know what I am talking about, that is for I thought I would update and try to promise to come here more often for there are some of you quiet types that come in to visit and sit with your tea...I really like you with your tea you know...
Ok, this is a wee bit of a visual update with a few words thrown in for good is what has been happening around these parts of late:
Contributed handmade flags for a Prayer Flag project with some lovely gal pals wherein a connection was made at an art retreat and let me tell you, I am a bit of a lagger when it comes to deadlines for things creative (trying to work that out, because it is rather a pain) but this was such a wonderful project and so calming...more to come on that for sure.

Experienced a first ever show with my jewelry designs at a local event and it was probably the most fun and best best way for me to interact with so many amazing women...
There were sisters wanting pieces for sisters and mothers for daughters and daughters for mothers and daughters for mothers get it.  
An absolutely amazing time, all the energy and sweet feedback, here's a few sneaky peakys of that show...

 Then a Gallery notices my work at the show and now voila this girls designs are in said Gallery...I am honored to be amongst so many amazing local artists.

 In between there are hand etched designs of wee, little gifts for friends and then one thinks "wow these are pretty lovely and must be put in the  shop...because it's only fair (btw every design is unique, that's what happens when  you make things with your hands).

Ahhh Art Journaling...have you tried this lately, if not, you really really need to, matter of fact I command you to! Just kidding, sort of.
I have had the opportunity for sometime now to host art journaling workshops at my home and I must say the experience is downright fulfilling,  nourishing well really so much more than I could have expected...the company is sweet, the teacher  is...well, no words do'll just have to check it's really really great stuff my fine ones...truly it is.

Oh and have you met Zeke, he's a one of kind love machine who just does not fail to surprise...packs a whole lot in one little vessel...just look at those eyes...

Go Gently 
Kind Ones
For you truly are lovely 
You  had better know this

I have been thinking quite a lot lately of relationships and how I have been formed and changed due to relationships in my life...the broad spectrum of these relationships, from the good, the great, the bad, the so so, some turned not so good, some better than expected...the real friendships which make my heart swell and feel warm and safe inside...then I read/listened to this and it rang so true on so many levels...just wanted to share.

I do so miss some friends for they are an ocean away...often I miss some friends that are right here...hmmm that must change.

Go gently my friend...

those little wee things...

It's all the stuff that keeps us grounded and you not agree? it's the damn dog giving kisses, finishing a painting for a loved one on an anniversary, it's the bedtime request for scratching a back, the little fingers on your face that secure love when a little one needs assurance, it's the beautiful toes that remind you of both you and their's so many things combined that make a day beautiful..are you feeling this?

Wee treasure trove...

It would seem that my little blog space here has been seriously neglected over the past months...I am about to change that so stay tuned...blogging has always been a simple and fun way to post things about life, loves, works etc etc you know what I mean...however, life has seemed to get quite overwhelming of late, and sometimes it's not always simple and fun to share...that is the dirt truth.  However, I miss posting here and although I don't really know who comes to visit this space...this will not deter me and I shall keep this little place alive...
speaking of alive, my hands have been alive with work and these are some pieces that were juried into a local gallery..

I am quite happy and excited that my designs will be enjoyed and adorned by lovely ladies from both near and far...more to come.
Hoping you have been well, where you are and that things are good in your little corner.
