New Jewelry and Updates

It's been quite some time since I've updated the blog. Having two real jobs in addition to my online business has kept me pretty busy.
I've had some crazy success with my line of Regretsy-themed jewelry. For anyone who is unfamiliar with the site, it is a blog (started by April Winchell) that showcases the many oddities that can be found on Etsy. Here is the "Say What" necklace, using the image from a painting by Denny Pinkham that was featured on Regretsy. My Regretsy-themed jewelry can be purchased HERE.

In more recent news: I've begun working with Melody Sanchez Wolfe (Belizean Melody) on a unique line of jewelry, which features her beautiful artwork. They will soon be offered for sale in her gallery on Ambergris Caye in Belize. More details to follow. These items can be viewed and purchased from my website..

I've also been working with another resident (tacogirl Belize)of Belize on a line of jewelry which features photographs that she has taken on Ambergris Caye. These items can also be purchased from my website.



Silja (http://www.5erg.com) was kind enough to send me a picture of herself wearing the Octopus pendant she won from my recent giveaway.

After the giveaway, I started looking at Silja's shop and really loved her work. I asked her if she would allow me to use her art to make some necklaces for my shop. She agreed, and I got to work immediately. Here is the result of the first set of pendants I made, using Silja's work.

I'm working tonight on getting more listed. So please check by with my shop to see all of the new items.

Please visit Silja's website and view all of her beautiful artwork.

New Rings in Sofa City Accessories Shop

I've continued my exploration into the world of shrink plastic. The fumes are hurting my head and killing all of my brain cells, but I'm having fun in the process.

Here a few examples of what I've made recently:

Rings are $5.95 each and can be found at


New Jewelry Shop

I was messing around with some shrink plastic and made some jewelry. I have only posted a few items, so far (too tired to list them all tonight). But I thought I would share and seek some opinions.

So, please, tell me what you think.

Necklaces are priced at $7.95 and bracelets at $5.95.


Life seems to have stopped recently for me. My beautiful little girl, Gizmo, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday.

It's all that's on my mind. So when I sat down to post a new blog entry, all I can think to say is how much I miss her and how empty life feels without this wonderful friend by my side.
