It feels like it's been days since I've been in the studio. I came down with something on my way from Raleigh last week. Yesterday, after feeling crappy all week, I finally headed to Urgent Care and found out I have a sinus infection, so now I'm on antibiotics. It's been YEARS since I've taken any. I very rarely get this sick. During the days, I feel great. I mean- functional!

Last night, Joe was watching a game on tv, so I was forced to head into the studio. I did a few new things.
This wire wrapped bracelet features pretty faceted citrine nuggets, peach Muscovite ovals, a Ceramic round from Gaea, and small teal ceramic rounds from Mary Ann Carroll. The large enamel ring is from C-Koop beads, and I finished it all off with a small bird charm from Jade Scott. This one will be available in my Big Cartel Shop shortly.

This second one,  a necklace- has to be one of my favorite pieces so far. I love this Green Girl Studios Floral Cross;

...instead of using it like a typical pendant, I used it as a connector, since it has a hole at the top and bottom. I did simple loops on the coral Swarovski glass pearls (that I got at Ornamentea) and wire wrapped blue opal coins along with vintage mother of pearl buttons. The brass disc chain is vintage, and was given to me by Erin of Tesori Trovati.
A random necklace with three different sections- Joe told me it looked like it was 3 necklaces in one. I guess?  It was a peaceful necklace to make, in between the coughing, anyway. ;)

This necklace is already spoken for- by an amazing woman I know, who not only battled cancer, but also brain surgery last week.  You ROCK, C. 

I figure in a few days I'll be back to normal. Til then, expect spotty blog posts.  xo


  1. Absolutely love the bracelet! Hope you're feeling better soon, no fun to be sick.

  2. I love the bracelet too. Sending healing thoughts your way!

  3. Sorry you are sick. I am on the other side of illness now. It is already a rough winter and it hasn't even started yet:((
    Love the necklace by the way.....

  4. Wow! pretty impressive that you even went into the studio, much less making such beautiful pieces! Feel well soon!

  5. Interesting combinations in the second necklace.
    Hope you feel better soon!!

  6. Beautiful pieces! I'm surprised you managed to make anything--sinus infections can be awful and really drain the energy out of a person. Hope you are feeling much better in no time.

  7. Love the new pieces, hope you're feeling better soon!

  8. I have never been as sick as when I had a sinus infection! But it was during the summer, which I think is awful. It is amazing that you can create while feeling bad. Well done!

    Hope you are feeling better!


  9. I thought I recognized that chain! I love what you did with it. And it is going to someone very deserving.
    Sorry you are feeling under the weather. Hope you feel better soon.
    Enjoy the day.

  10. I hope you feel better soon! Beautiful pieces - love the colours you have used.

  11. Oooh, rough time of year to be feeling sick.
    Hope the spring is back in your step soon.
    Love - Love the bracelet!
