New Toy !

I've wanted one of these forever and we finally got one today ! We now have our own flat lap for the many hundreds and hundreds of pounds of slab stones we have here. So after I get a new Diamond wheel, we will start playing with it to turn our stones into Cabochons and then I will have more to play with when it comes to making silver and stone necklaces and rings. I can't wait to try it out !

On another note, I had someone order a custom order of a locket made to look like the one on the Twilight series. I guess it's something Bella is wearing. People just love to have what is worn by their favorite characters in the movies and on TV. I just have to set the stone and clean it up and then it's done. Hope your having a great Halloween ! ~Lisa

New Post !!

it's been way too long since I've posted. Life has a way of changing and mine did it with a bang this summer. With a bit of double vision, I thought I better go have my eyes checked for the new glasses I would need. 5 doctors later, it was decided that I had a large brain tumor right smack in the middle of my brain. Its just not what someone wants to hear when life is going really well, you finally have a good man in your life that treats you like gold and your business on line is going well too. So after lots of tears and pain, I'm trying hard to pull up my big girl panties and get on with my life. I'm trying hard to ignore the thought of surgery and yearly MRI's the rest of my life and dive deep in work and enjoying life. So, if you missed me, this is why, I was having a pity party. if you didn't oh well, the party's over anyway. So this month I joined a swap, I haven't done one in ages ! Mine was a earring swap- kind of silly since I am allergic to metal and never wear them but I will try. these are the one's I made. Did I say my eye sight is shot too now - well close up for small things anyway, so these were hard to do ! but they are pretty and I had these triangles of metal so I decided to use them. Enjoy, Lisa !
