A Nice Compliment

New Pompom Rings

It's the week of Thanksgiving and I am writing from the state of Michigan. It's not as cold as I anticipated, but cold enough and refreshing. We are visiting my in-laws and other family members and friends.

I want to introduce you to my newest collection, the
Pompom ring! I designed these rings with young people in mind or at the very least, for the young at heart! Age is just a number, nothing more, you should wear what you love!

Where did I get the name Pompom? Searching for a name that would be fun, hip and different, it tool me back to my days as a cheerleader, hence the name "Pompom". These rings are clusters of pearls, crystals and sometimes gemstones, they move with you and make a nice compliment to any outfit for any occasion. They also make great gifts.

More beauties

I just finished a few other Breast Cancer Awareness goodies... two bookmarks and a keychain. I do enjoy making the bookmarks because I can get very creative with the color combinations, fun beads and charms.

Summer is ending?

I am in denial! It simply cannot be August 21st. Where has the summer gone? I remember a ton of fun, the 4th of July, lemonade stands, the pool, movies, bike riding, neighborhood bar-b-ques, visiting family and friends, popsicles, the beach... and speaking of the beach, we just returned from our family vacation on the North Carolina beaches. As much as I love and adore the beach, it revitalized my soul so that by the end of the week, all I could think about was creating new jewelry designs and getting ready for the glorious colors of fall.

My daughter begins school in a few days and I'm not ready. We haven't had enough fun.
I won't miss the heat, I'm ready for the change in temperature.

I've made quite a few changes to my "new" website and I hope you will shop soon My new collection, Teens-Young at Heart, was inspired by the beautiful and caring young teens living in my neighborhood. They are hard workers and go-getters, so I designed a line geared towards their own free spirit and soul. So thank you Erin!


Welcome to my blog and another home for me on the web. This is a new frontier, so bare with me while I get things sorted out.
