Another bauble beauty.

So it's been weeks and I am still enjoying assembling jewelry from vintage components, buttons, beads and anything else I can put in a pendant or drill a hole in. It is so much fun. You can get this one at the store for just $35. That vintage ball of discoish beauty is huge and so much fun it is hard for me to part with this one!

On another note...Beth from the blog Green Cricket is making the couple hundred mile trek today to come to my store! I love that. It is one of the major reasons I will always have some type of retail space to meet other crafty people. I love it when someone walks in the store who gets it. See most don't really understand exactly what I am doing and I think it bothers people sometime. I get asked so what kind of store is this anyway alot. But every once in awhile I get the person who is fascinated and stays for an hour or more. Just the other day there was this cool girl who I let come in the studio and she actually got shaky! I love that. It is how I react when I visit stores that inspire me so to see that my little chunk of the world gives others that same feeling...well it just feels darn good. So thanks to all of you who get me.

Wow this is a gorgeous piece! I don't think I could part with this. I can't believe I haven't had time to visit your shop yet--I've been busy moving--but I will be down soon :) And I'm sure I'll "get it" :) Don't worry about the people that don't.

I get that whole "So what's this shop all about" line a ton here, too. People are weird.

I too was honored to see the studio and besides getting a little shaky, I gasped a bit too. A crafters wonderland !!!!!
