Are you walking on sunshine!? … Because summer is upon us!
Over the past few weeks I have been wearing my volunteer hat and helping out at the kids’ schools – with ‘end of the year’ activities.
Things have been quiet on the jewelry front, however artistry is still happening daily.
Jewelry making is more than a hobby, it is a departure for me; I am able to put my head phones in, and envelop myself in creativity. Bird nest pendants are still being created, and I am learning to stamp metals! What I love about making the bird nest pendants, is that each piece is one of a kind – they are so unique. Stamping metal charms is similar – in that each charm can be created just for that special person.
For mother’s day, I created a few individualized stamped charms for two friends and myself. The charms were stamped with our kid’s initials or names. Some charms were embellished with a small silver heart. & The final touch was the silver chain.
With the end of the school year, came the THANK YOU’s to the wonderful teachers. For our elementary school teachers, the kids & I put together small buckets of just a few of their favorite things. We also included personalized keychains. Why JUST create stamped-metal charms for necklaces? – they look just as great on keychains too!
Wooo!!! As crazy as the end of the school year was – NOW SUMMER IS UPON US! … & we are diving feet first, into camp, crafts, and craziness!
Currently, I am looking into different venues to sell my pieces. I have emails & applications out & I am waiting to hear back. As soon as I have a venue & date I will let you know! For now … keep checking out the website, follow our Facebook page, & follow me on Twitter.
& remember: Summer is a State Of Mind.
