I live in Arizona and it is hot hot hot. But not as hot as my jewelry line!  I whine a lot in the summer but when the rest of the year happens in Arizona, you better believe I taunt and rub it in every chance I get for all of you who live in COLD WINTER COUNTRY. Yes I do because I can!.... and sometimes I can be just a touch hateful.....who me....noooooooo, not me♥! Enough about me for now. I will tell you a few Arizona summer jokes and then show what I have been doing while being cooped up while it sizzles outside.
It's so hot in Arizona that........
The potatoes cook underground, and all you have to do to have lunch is to pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.
The cows are giving evaporated milk.
The trees are whistling for the dogs.
Can you say 113 degrees without fainting.
You learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron. 
The 4 seasons are: tolerable, hot, really hot, and ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!
You discover that in July, it takes only 2 fingers to drive your car.

OK OK OK stop already!  I'm even making myself I'll....sorry, I'm moving on now.

I know this will cheer us all up!

I am starting a new collection and want to give you a preview of the first couple of pieces.  Then I will show you some of the other designs I have created in the past couple of months.

ENJOY! and check out my store at


This SteamPunk Bracelet is the first of my new SteamPunk Collection.

It is designed with the inside workings of an old watch.  I embellished it with Swarovski crystals.  The chain is one I have had for many years so I am not certain what it is made of...probably brass? The clasp is made of Sterling Silver.

Measures approx "7.5" but I will make it any length you need.

This Steampunk Necklace is hand crafted with the inner works of two watches.  The metal is probably stainless steel.  I wire wrapped each piece with Sterling Silver wire and adorned the center divide with Swarovski Crystals.  The necklace has a front closing clasp to add just another touch of funk to the piece.  Take a look at the back because there is a surprise there for you (I have intentionally not included a picture of the back of this piece).

Measures 18" plus the pendant which measures 2.50"

This Beautiful Wire Wrapped Blue Druzy slice hangs from a Unique handcrafted Sterling Silver Chain.

Measures 18" plus the pendant which measures 2.25" x 1.5

Industrial meets Pretty.  The Top half is Wire Wrapped with a Natural Blue Zircon, a Natural Citrine, a pear Shaped Amethyst and 2 CZ gemstones......and this is just the top of the necklace!  It is finished off with an awesome Wire Wrapped  Pendant the color of fresh Raspberries. This is a definite show stopper!

Measures 18" plus the pendant which measures 2.50" x .5"


Unique Sterling Silver Earrings that Screw On and Screw Off!
That's right, you read this right. It's almost as much fun wearing them as it is screwing them on and off!!! OK that unintentionally sounded way bad, but you get my drift.

This ring is designed with  a stunning AAA Brazilian Amethyst Gemstone on recycled Sterling Silver. 
Size 91/2

Stunning Rainbow Druzy and Sterling Silver Earrings.  OOOPPPS, just SOLD!!

My very first tomato from my garden!!!!  Look at this beauty.

Summer in Arizona is hot hot hot....however, no tornadoes, no earthquakes, no snow storms, and no hurricanes. It does get well over 100 degrees (ugh!) but only in late May thru September, then nothing but beautiful weather until next May or June.  Life is good in Arizona!!! But, don't tell everyone because we like it not to be any more crowded than it already is.  You can come visit, but we prefer that you go back home...just kidding!

How many of you have regular family reunions? 

In 1983, I planned the very first of what has turned out to be many many reunions in the last 30 years.  When we started, we had one every 5 years then we changed it to every three years and now we do it every two years.  Some of my siblings are in their 70's and 80's now and one never knows.  We only have two rules;1) Someone must volunteer to plan the next reunion before the end of  the current reunion and 2) Who ever volunteers to plan the next reunion gets to name the place. There are often more than 100 of us together.  We are happy, fun, loud and on occasion (OK Often), obnoxious.  This year we are getting together in Los Osos, California.  It is a beautiful place just outside of Paso Robles and a short drive to Morro Bay.  We laugh alot, drink alot, eat alot, talk alot, play alot and tease each other mercilessly (one never gets to old to make fun of your siblings). 

I am the fourteenth of fifteen children (OK catch your breath now).  We have lost a few of our loved ones since we started getting together, but for the most part we are kickin a** and taking numbers.  I feel very fortunate to be a part of this beautiful and amazing family.

If you have family reunions, tell me about it.

Ladies, how about girl get togethers?? We all know that women know how to have fun!!!!  My BFF's and I get together often for a weekend of fun, food, drinks and always a good masseuse.

Last year, in between Family Reunions, I had a Girl Weekend with some of my many many nieces.  What a blast we had!  If you have never had one, now is the time for you to get together with your girlfriends and do something just for you.  I promise, you won't be sorry and you WILL look forward to the next one. 

God Bless and have a safe and wonderful summer!

It has been so long since I have found time to write on this blog.  Life seems to be so hectic and the older I get, the shorter the days seem to can that be????  Between socializing with friends, the 9 grand kids whom I adore, and the kids whom I used to adore, and my darling husband whom I do adore but sometimes neglect, and my BFF's that I also neglect and don't return their calls....I really do love you guys!  There is a reason for all of this neglect. I must confess, I have been having an affair.  Relax, it's not what you think, I have been having so much fun making jewelry, its almost an addiction.....OK, it's a real addiction and I don't plan on getting any help! So, sorry all, I will try to make sure you all get a piece of me sometime in the near future....but, maybe you should not start holding your breath just yet.

WANNA SEE MY ADDICTION?  Oh, I knew you would, thanks! OK, I did not mean that the creepy way it sounded.  OK, showing you my jewelry now!!!
