I'm melting!!!!

Seriously. It is not supposed to be this hot here. My truck registered 100 degrees. I think somebody pissed Mother Nature off big time! I have so many great ideas that I want to bring to fruition. Somehow lighting up a big ol' torch doesn't seem to appeal to me.....I am tired of sweating!
Oh well, hopefully the week gets cooler so I can get to work. In the meantime, enjoy a new picture of our puppy Hazel. She has gotten very big, very fast. She is a total sweetie and doing great!

New Ring-Knuckle Buster

I love this piece of Laguna Lace Agate. I set it in a fine silver bezel that I hammered, oxidized and sanded.
I struggled with how to set it, horizontal or vertical. I am glad I set it horizontal. It is much more of a badass ring this way!

Bench Mascot!


Okay, so the kids started school last week. BOTH kids are in school for almost 7 hours a day...I admit I have a little bit of the empty nest syndrome. But really, what household is complete without a furry creature creating havoc around the house?

So here she is....my little (not so much) bench mascot. She is a 4 1/2 month old, 40 pound black lab puppy. She is really amazing! We got her from a rescue. She was turned in by a back yard breeder. She and her sister were the last two left and by this time at 4 months, nobody was going to pay for a puppy that old. At least the breeder turned her into a rescue and not the pound!

She is wonderful, sleeps all night in her crate, potties outside, plays well, sleeps lots and finally has learned to walk on a leash.

So, may not be a jewelry update...but she has relieved some stress and will help me to be relaxed and read to create! Oh and her name is Hazel :)
