Thanks to Carolyn Eddy

Today I had the privelege of meeting the lovely an talented artist, jewelry designer and author Carolyn Eddy at our local Gem Faire. We got to chatting about designs and our work and our passion for what we do as artists. I left her booth so encouraged as she was so full of tips. I just have to give her a plug for her workshop after seeing her beautiful designs.

Carolyn has 2 books out now on wire wrapping available at

Lets Get Wrapped!: A Self Teaching Instruction Manual for Beginning Wire Artists
All Wrapped Up, A Tribute to 5 of America's Finest Wire Jewelry Artists

If anyone is wanting to learn wire wrapping this would be a great place to start.

Treasures From the Sky, Land and Sea

I've got treasures from the sky and the sea listed today so far but am waiting on an order for my moldavite. Moldavite is a tektite made from a meteor impact to the ground turning the sand to glass.

Listed today are some lovely pieces of shells found on my favorite Oregon Coastline and some Sikhote-Alin meteorites. All my meteorites in the past have sold out and I've had a harder time aquiring my supplies at a reasonable price lately. All my Moldavite pieces have sold out too so it will be great to restock my shop with more.

In regard to my shells, this time around I've given them a lacquer finish, not just to protect it but to give it a nice wet look. I love the patterns and colors in these pieces.

Please check them out!
