An artisan jewelry journey in color, texture and fun. Beaded jewelry with handcrafted sterling silver is my focus and joy.

Many, Many Thanks!
Well the holiday spending seems to be dying down, and I've tallied all the purchases made from my Hope for Whirled Peas Collection created to provide support for the Fisher House ™ Foundation. Many, many thanks are due to all the wonderful folks who chose pieces from the collection for themselves or for gifts. Today I was able to donate $140 to support the Fisher Houses at Fort Sam Houston and Lackland Air Force Base here in San Antonio - woohoo! This is so beyond my expectations, and I owe it all to my fabulous customers, and also to the amazing bloggers from the 90/90 challenge who featured my fundraising collection, including Phyllis Mufson who included me in her feature on Etsy artists that give to charity, and to "Allison" who submitted my Three Peas in a Pod Earrings to Etsy Finds where they were featured on December 3 (and sold minutes thereafter!). Thank you all again.
I still have the wonderful pea green pearls in stock, so I will continue making pieces for the collection as they hold out (and I'll keep looking for more in the meantime). The signature necklace sold, and I hope to create another wire-wrapped pendant to replace it in the collection soon, so keep posted for that.
Peas out, y'all.
