New Items Post.....visual in nature...few words

It has been a while.....

Arrow Ring -Vesuvianite aka Idocrase

Balance Level Earrings 

Elements Pendant-Land and Sky-Blue Chalcedony-Stone-Antler

Etched Copper Hibiscus Pendant with Antler Slice

Still have many pieces to photograph....will be posting them throughout the week. I managed to survive the Art was a very cold day....temperatures down in the 30's...don't now how we avoided pneumonia. We lost one of our cats Sept. 13th, she died of natural causes at home with us.... almost a month has passed...her passing has been difficult on us...she was almost 17 years old. We'll miss you Cinny.
Lessons learned these past few weeks----will try to do less planning....things don't always work out in life as well as in art...also quit beating myself up all the's really unflattering....and I'm a pro at it.  Pushing myslef too hard has a slow down effect...too much goes wrong. Murphy's Law....



  1. Sue!!!

    i have been missing YOU!
    i wish that i could just give you a strong caring hug for everything you have been through, rather than simply typing these words . . .

    i am so sorry about Cinny. i know how much you love your feline companions, i really do.

    your new works are gorgeous, and you've put so much time and soul into them! i eagerly await the remaining pieces :)

    sending so much love!

  2. It's so nice to see new work from you! I know how messy and chaotic art shows can be... It takes a lot of metal will power to stay calm and not let it get the best of you.
    I always try to remind myself that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It helps keep my mind calm, a smile on my face, and my moves slower. It transfers to those around me and my customers.
    I hope you find your peace in not planning too much..

  3. Sorry to hear you're having a hard time Sue, losing a 17 year old friend is so difficult.

    Your work is so beautiful, interesting and inspired.

    Sending best wishes and hugs, Ro

  4. Laurie, SJ and Ro....great to hear from you and the kind words of support regarding the loss of a dear friend...Cinny, and the mental health support. I went into meltdown territory without a life jacket. Reconnecting without the stress is was great waking up this morning to your caring and thoughtful comments....i needed to you guys....i really mean it.❤

  5. I'm so sorry to hear about your beloved Cinny *hugs*. It's lovely to see your new beautiful earthy inspiring jewellery! I'm looking forward to seeing the other pieces you've created. xx

  6. Thank you Michele...still filling her food dish with water as a way to honor her absence and her memory. I'm hoping to get pics taken of the other new pieces this afternoon if we get a break in the rain or tomorrow I'll be working at home all day. I hope you are all moved in and cozy! ❤Hugs back...Sue

  7. Beautiful designs Sue!! I have lost a cat of 17 years myself and know how keenly the loss is felt. They become such a daily part of our lives.

  8. Hi Mary...she was the baby of my original group of three....they've all passed on...she was a part of the old group and the new group....we have a 3 year old Savannah, Lily, and a siamese, Mia, who's about 2 from a rescue...we also have a bunny and guinea pig....lots of critters about.

  9. I'm sorry to hear about Cinny. Big hugs to you
