Maybe im in the holiday spirit, or maybe i caught the give-away bug...but i decided its time that i have my first contest! I hope you all participate!!

Here's the low-down- I want you guys to do some trend forecasting for me. I want to keep my jewelry fresh and up to date with all the upcoming, and current trends. I tend to lean towards floral and organic images and designs, but I want to have something to offer everyone! So I welcome ALL of your suggestions. Whats the next big thing.... Is it nautical, more animals, geometric design, greys and blacks, hearts (i hope not!)???? You tell me!

Remember, I work with images, pattern, and color, so input on any of these elements are welcome.

You may be wondering "what does the winner get?" The winner will receive one petite pendant from my shop. Your choice!!!

So please leave me your suggestions in a comment on this post, and I will select a winner (at random!) on December 25th! Merry Christmas!

ps-enter more than once, if you have more than on suggestion ;)

Tagged AGAIN!

Catherine Chandler tagged me again!! I dont mind, i kinda like sharing secrets....even if they are weird! So here are 5 more for ya!

1. Shopping is like therapy for me. Its trouble! Yet, i dont have a single credit card (thank god!). Obviously i dont shop too much with Eliza ;)

2. I am 100% confident in my metalsmithing skills. its good to feel that way about something.

3. I have the shortest fingernails possible. I hate it, yet i cant control the urge to pick at them. Especially when im stressing.

4. The song "ill be home for Christmas" makes me cry sometimes, because the thought of being alone at Christmas kinda breaks my heart.

5. Ive just realized that no matter what happens in my life- EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK! Im not sure is 24 is early or late to figure that out, but its a very freeing feeling. Its the one piece of advice i would give anyone who asks.

ok, Kathy aka mom, and whitney. YOUR IT!!

Happy Holidays!!

I hope everyone is embracing the holiday season that is upon us! I have been more than a little stressed lately, but thinking of the family gathering, good food, company, Christmas carols, and candy canes seems to cheer me up no matter what! It is without a doubt, the most wonderful time of the year! According to me at least...

Last weekend was Holiday Heap here in Charm City. It was a WONDERFUL show, and I was so happy to be part of it! The Charm City Craft Mafia did an awesome job at organizing the event, and all of their hard work (I cant imagine!!!!) really paid off. I think it was a great show for both shoppers and vendors, and I hope to participate in many more of their shows and events!

As i have decided to focus all my energy on my Lucite jewelry, that is really all i brought to the show. I am happy to report that it was a huge success!!!! Everyone was very complimentary, and seemed to like what i was doing. It was great to see such positive responses, and really made me feel validated!! THANK YOU to anyone who stopped by to chat or look at my work, you made it a truly great experience!

I made tons of new work for the show! New images, new shapes, new everything! Unfortunately, since i was working on new stuff right up until the morning of the show, i didnt have time to photograph everything. (Im kicking myself now!) I will be posting images of my remaining work asap, and you will also be able to find some of my new work etsy in the next few days.

If you would like to see the work in person, I will be participating in the Towson Metals and Jewelry Club semi-annual sale. It is a great way to see the amazing work being produced at Towson these days, and also pick up a few truly unique holiday gifts. Mark your calenders!!
