Organic Dice Necklace


Dice! This is made out of pure silver, not sterling.
A customer wanted a pair of dice with only one dot and 3 dots. These came out very nice and might make some smaller ones soon!
These organic style dice were so much fun to make and are one of a kind:-)

NEW Marathon and Triathlon Jewelry






All my custom pendants and charms are made of pure silver or 22k solid gold. I love making custom jewelry as they are not mass produced:)
I also like the look of rustic, antique metal. Oxidizing the silver gives all my jewelry a natural organic style about them.

Camping Vacation along the California Coast






































Camping along the coast for a week was very relaxing, especially with our little Vespa. It made life easier getting around town while our camper was parked at the camp site:)
For dinner my hubby cooked tri-tip! I bought some fine cheeses and wine..it was like a 5 star restaurant..all in our camper!

Just click the picture and it will take you to my website:) These earrings are handmade using thick guage sterling silver wire for the earwires and heavy wire work on the Turquoise stones.

"26.2" Marathon Cube Charm Necklaces



Want to buy these items for someone or for yourself? Just click the picture and it will take you to my website:) Petite "Cube" necklaces are customized to have initials, names, words or marathon distances stamped on them. I made these 2 cubes for a customer who wanted the 26.2 stamped on the front and "Golf" on one side and her name on the other. A little gemstone dangles at the clasp so if the clasp turns around on the neck, it will show the cute gemstone dangling:) These are pretty difficult to make using pure fine silver but the end results are satisfying!

The Alcatraz Triathlon was quite an event.
At 6am I watched the sunrise which was picture perfect with Alcatraz coming into view...it was very beautiful plus the weather couldn't be better: the high was 70 degrees on race day...
I'm very proud of my hubby, especially with the water temp. being 56 degrees. *Brrrr*...thats too cold for me!!

I went around fighting the crowds and focusing on my hubby, making sure he didn't pass by for some good pictures:) I missed him on the bike as there were way too many people to get through.

We drove 7 hours later that day back to San Diego..
Here is his swim chart taken from his Garmin...kinda neat right?(click picture for larger view) :) I must say all 1800 people were spread everywhere with the current taking many swimming so far west they had canoes redirecting them back on track. Quite a site to see!

Pendants, Pet Name Tags, Floating Heart







I had fun making these 3 pendants. The heart pendant is actually a pet name tag with a phone number stamped on the back. Balancing the heart in both the circle and the Tree of Life was a bit difficult but I think it turned out sweet:)

Stagecoach
















We went to Stagecoach which is a country outdoor concert in Palm Springs. We watched the Eagles play for the first time which was really neat!


My sister in law had a booth selling her almonds called " My Husbands Nuts " (which are really yummy) and she also displayed my jewelry:)

My husband and I rode our bikes from our RV to the concert site which was too much fun..The blurred picture was of us racing our friends who were on another bike riding back to the camp site..
