Haven't posted in ages it seems, sorry! Last Saturday was my "Artisans at Artway" show with other Etsy sellers. It was fun, but not profitable at all! It poured down rain and only a few brave friends and family soldiered out to see us. I did make some cool new artsy friends, however!
I cranked out a few new pieces right before the show but didn't take photos until this week...am trying to get them listed on my website and Etsy...also on Year of Jewelry since I am still so dreadfully behind!
Got some more stamping and doming practice in...here are a couple pairs of earrings that I am pretty proud of...Stacie Florer has inspired these quite a bit!

Tip...always have materials and tools with you at shows! I made this pocket rosary while sitting and waiting for customers!

I have been playing with rings a bit lately...mostly just the very simple technique, but I admit, I am a bit hooked now and want to finally attempt a couple of tutorials I have been saving...
