groupa coppera

 A new group of dark richly patinaed Copper pieces. I love Copper always have and always will continue to do so until the end of my days. And that is my final answer :)

I have listed 2 articulated crows from the Charm Swap 7, my little articulated bird charm prototype, a big Fight not Flight #3 ring, and my Ring a Day #363 small wing ring in my Etsy shop today.
I can finally free these things from my sweaty fisted death grip. Sometimes I just have to emotionally hang onto items for some mysterious reason. If anyone knows the answer to this phenomena please fill me in, I would love to be enlightened so I can change it. I find it kind of tiresome that I cannot let go and detach faster, especially since I am making them with the intent to share with others, doesn't quite make any sense now does it!?

"Have a great day everyone!"

For the love of a nation

Japan items for donation
I haven't forgotten my promise to myself of trying to continue to help the Japanese people. It is still tearing and ripping at my heart and I want to do what I can however small and insignificant it may seem, it makes a difference I know it can. My friend shared this perfect quote with me today, I think this is exactly what I am trying to say!
 "Even though you can't physically see a tree growing, it doesn't mean it's not."

I have made a few more simple bracelets (4) like the first round, they are on a stretchy cord with freshwater pearls and a center piece of coral. And I will be adding a 1.25" Japan button with a graphic that was specially made and generously donated by Nakisha VanderHoeven.

I also have made a new style of bracelet (6) for the cause. It still has freshwater pearls, but I found a neat crackle resin bead and I also handmade Sterling Silver hook and eye clasps for them. These will also include a 1.25" button with your donation/purchase.

You can access my items for donation with this direct link.
"Thank you!"
