12/5/08 - Fremont First Friday Art Walk

This month we have two artists to showcase!

Lisa Lemire - Mixed media using paper, metal, glass, gemstones... it's more than an image, it mirrors moods of mystery & peace... These are larger, glass framed pieces that would command a wall all to itself. (Secret: Did you ever wonder what I did for a creative outlet before this jewelry store? This is it - well one of my outlets at least... Yep, this is my maiden/artist name!)

Laura Bowker - We're having a trunk show! Her handcrafted art glass beads that she used the Battuto technique on, a form of glass engraving... These beads are big & simply beautiful! She traveled all the way to Italy to learn this technique & she's good at it! You could wear just one of her beads on a cord & that would beautifully say it all. To see more of her work, go to

We are going to have an awesome party! Come for wine, yummy hors d'oeuvres, beautiful jewelry & good times, Friday, December 5th from 6-9. Christmas shopping opportunity!

Mary Gibbs - Opening Reception, Friday - November 7th, 6-9PM

I was enjoying a beautiful day at the Edmonds Arts Festival in June & I came across Mary Gibbs who had a booth there. I LOVED her paintings! They are uniquely realistic watercolors of domestic cats, foliage & landscapes. What really drew me in, is this picture here called "Cozy Afternoon". I exclaimed "That looks like my cat!" She said this piece is her best seller & a lot of people say that! ALL her paintings are beautiful & she's a self taught artist. Along with a variety of paintings, we'll also have prints, notecards and coasters. To see more of her art go to

I hope you'll join us for her reception where you can meet Mary, enjoy some fine Hors D'Oeuvres & wine & while you're at it, have your jewelry inspected, polished & cleaned while you check out the beautiful, local artist jewelry we have in stock.

I just gotta' mention this one!

A customer comes in, gives me a "stick" drawing of a ring & says "I want an octopus here & a sea turtle there" (he was indicating on the side of the ring where only she would see the characters). So after some research & some heavy thought, I drew up what he wanted, but I went further than that. I thought we should express this idea fully & let it all hang out! When I called them in to take a look at my drawings I first showed him what he originally wanted. "That's exactly what I wanted!" but I said "But wait, I just gotta show you this..." I got "Oh yah, that's totally it!" Sweet! Everybody on my team was real excited about this one because it was so different. I have the most awesome wax carver, caster & jeweler ever! They all did an Excellent job! The ring is made of 18k white gold & really nice diamonds. When we make his ring, it'll be like her wedding ring with the sea weed & diamonds, only wider.

3/26/08 Seattle Weekly Ad

Here's a sweet 18k white gold ring I made for a customer who said "She's totally into cats"... It was a little tough coming up with a cat design that wouldn't end up looking cheesy. The eyes & tails alternate in direction. Two sets of the eyes are Emeralds & the opposite sets are Tsavorite Garnets - their birthstones. This is such a cool ring & he was really happy with it!

4/9/08 Update: I just got an e-mail from my customer that I made the ring for...

"I just wanted to let you know that I proposed to Cassie this weekend... and she said YES! She loves the ring--says it is the most beautiful and wonderful ring she has ever seen!--and also she can't wait to meet you. Thanks so much for working with me and making such a great ring!"

Go here to read about their beautiful proposal!

Congratulations David & Cassie! May your lives be filled with love, friendship, happiness and laughter!

Welcome to my brand new blog!

Look what I got for Christmas! This is the coolest necklace ever! Total Pirate Booty! ;-)
