Hello from the cool and foggy Oregon Coast

Sorry for the delay in not posting! We've been busy with Lighthouse Hosting at the Coquille River Lighthouse in Bandon, OR for May and now at the Cape Blanco Lighthouse near Port Orford, OR until the end of September. 
In between I've managed to find a shop in Bandon that has sold some of my jewelry and
new Doggie Bling on consignment. So, my fingers have been working hard in a few spare moments!
Here is a silver version of the Star Fish I did last year. I made this one into a brooch for a fine
lady in Toronto! I liked it so much I had to make one for myself! :)

I also do special projects, like the one I did for my good friend Cecilia. She had a very pretty carved pendant but needed it suspended on a necklace with matching bracelet and earrings. Here is what I came up with:



Here are some of my Doggie Bling samples. Since we are in Oregon, you're either a "Duck" (University of Oregon) or a "Beaver" (Oregon State University) up here!  I sew these onto a sleeve so that a pet owner can just slide the regular collar through the sleeve and instant bling for their pet!
I also do:
"I (heart) My Ducks" in Green and Yellow. Or any special team you may have in mind! These go for $8 plus $1.50 postage.

Do you have a cat or dog that needs a little personalized collar? I can do any name in any color!
Just let me know!
Enjoy your July and I hope you aren't roasting where you live!

  1. I love my starfish so much and everyone who sees me wearing it compliments me :-) The dog/cat bling collars are fantastic, I wish I could get my kitties to wear a collar but I think I'd have better odds winning the lotto - LOL!!!!

  3. Quite awesome pieces! As usual! I took MM's bling off to keep it clean for vacation. She had a fit! I'm sure it will wash up just fine though!
