Random Ramblings

  • I am always on the lookout for puzzle pieces that can be made into jewelry because I have a good friend whose daughter is autistic.   When I won a GC to Creative Impressions, I felt like I hit a gold mine.  Tari has some beautiful buttons that are puzzle pieces and since she makes them herself, you are able to order the hole where you want them.  I ordered some with the holes on top.
  • Okay I am officially a brand snob.  One of my treats is kettle korn and I have been getting Orville Redenbacher.  Well the prices more then tripled in the last year so I decided to try another brand.  I picked up Safeway's brand since I have loved their other snacks but it just doesn't taste right.  Guess that I am going to have to bite the bullet and pay more.  Oh and cut back so I don't have a bag a night.
  • Why oh why is my muse being so contradictory?   She is flat out insisting that I use a bracelet bar for a necklace.
  • Well we put down the Earnest money on the house.  Wish us luck.  Both me and Saje are too beat up to even consider moving and finding a place as perfect as this one would be difficult.
  • I haven't a lot to show of in the way of new jewelry. Between designing for a challenge and getting sick on Wednesday, I only made one necklace.  The focal is from Ashbury Ave and it is hand-knotted up with Cherry Quartz.  You can find it here if you are interested in purchasing this feminine beauty.           


  1. lovely necklace! and really LOVE those puzzle buttons!

  2. Hi Shai, I hope that you get the house. I agree that moving is difficult. Your necklace is beautiful and very feminine.

  3. Tari's puzzle pieces are very cool. I will have to get one and make a necklace for my sister-in-law who is a puzzle person. Thanx for showing them to me.

    1. I was wandering around her site and found them. Once I saw that I could just get one hole the top and others on top and bottom, I just couldn't ressit
