Look What I Can Do...


This is my very first attempt at an ad banner. I have had Photoshop for years,but really only know how to crop my pictures and do some touch ups. Finally, yesterday I decided to sit down and give this a shot. I used a tutorial I found online and spent hours playing around. I must say I am pretty pleased with the final results. I figure it will save me some $ if I can designs my own ads.

Sacred Heart


Sacred Heart
Originally uploaded by Below14th.
I have been busily working on new pieces for 2 big shows I have coming up in March.

"Sacred Heart" is the latest addition to my shop. The focal of this necklace is a faceted cherry quartz heart. The heart measures just about 1 inch across and is hung from an oxidized sterling silver cable chain. The necklace features a pewter toggle clasp which is used as a front closure.

This is a OOAK piece.

Feel Like Royalty


I just added these today. They are very limited run. I only made two pairs of these. If they do well I may add something similar.

These earrings feature sterling silver origami beads, sterling Bali spacers, faceted Carnelian beads and sterling ear wires.
