heart of india

It's August, you know. In case you weren't aware. Not that I think you wouldn't know the month. It's just that personally, I rarely know the date and on the occasions when I must write a check or sign a legal document, I am forced to embarrassingly look up and say to the person before me, "It's the third right?" Which really messes up the pulled-together, on-top-of-it persona that I'm going for.

So it's August, which for me means I have about a month to finish off my Winter jewelry collection, get it photographed and packaged.  I have a pretty good start.  I have a mini collection within the general collection called "Heart of India". Above is a sneak peak of some of the earrings from that collection.  It's all about bright color and gold tones.

I am expecting a shipment from Mood in New York to arrive any day and then I will go to work, snipping and sewing and gluing and such.  All this will take place, of course, after the babies are asleep into the wee hours of the morning.  I'll be like the elves from the Brother's Grimm fairytale of the shoemaker. Except I won't be naked. No, no. That could be catastrophic with all the needles and glue used in my studio.

Oh and there has been a wee bit of sketching going on over here as well. I might just have to make up my own desktop to share with you for this brand spankin' new month.

Beautiful! I sent you an email through etsy, but didn't hear back from you... I see you've been BUSY!

Are you still able to participate in the giveaways at the Southern Institute next week? I just need to know for sure and what you will be donating... I'm writing up the posts this week. Thanks April! I hope you can still be a part of my 1 year celebration!
