what i've been working on...

in addition to painting my fingernails, trying to convince chris that he'll like brussel sprouts, and working on my endurance (so i can kick at least a few butts in a spetember marathon - yes, i know that's a long ways away), i've been making a few pieces of jewelry. every year since i've been selling online has been slow from about a week before christmas until the middle of january, so i feel like now i can take a little break and work on jewelry when i want rather than round the clock. here are a few pieces of jewelry i've been working on for my shop...

i hope you had a fun new year's eve and started your new year off well! i started my new year off the way any significant occasion should be welcomed or celebrated - WITH FOOD! honestly, i think about it sometimes, and if i ate less (and i could certainly stand to do it) but kept running the same amount, i'd basically be invisible if i turned sideways. but i just can't give up my food. not gonna happen. i'm not sure how i went from talking about jewelry to talking about food, but before i start telling you about my love for orange cinnamon rolls and bacon, i will bid you adieu.

  1. have you listed those in your shop yet? I think I have an addiction to your jewelry. Is that bad? No. But I have been wearing my sequin necklace every day during our trip so far, and it makes me super happy. I packed away my bullet necklace on accident and by the time I realized that I did that, it was buried in the bottom of the van. Something to look forward to.

  3. Beautiful, Danielle! I'm really liking the look of the hoop earrings that you've been working on! I'm trying to love this down time, too. And trying to catch up with life in general right now after an extended, lazy break!

  9. Yay! I love it when you post stuff you're working on. That necklace I bought from you is one of my favorite pieces I own. Huzzah for food! See, I have the same issue. Except not that I'd look like a rail, but if I didn't work out, I'd be about 500 pounds.

  17. Those earrings are just toooo beautiful, if I didn't have stretched ears, they would be mine. Hmmmm that gives me an idea...would you ever be able to make ear plugs out of crystals?
