Went to the Gem and Jewelry Show this weekend. Couldn't stay away as always. Since silver is so high, I found some really nice pewter pieces to use as charms. I hope silver does not continue to rise in price because is is really causing a lot of jewelry designers to leave sterling silver out of their designs due to the cost.
Ever since I started making jewelry 5 years ago, I find myself somewhat obsessed with beads. I love creating new and unique designs. I also love the loyal customers who return again and again to snatch up some of my new designs and to hear them tell me about the many compliments they get on their many jewelry purchases. It make me feel good to hear people rave about my work. I truly enjoy creating them.
