one of my favorite moments in time with my beautiful girls in their custom it's by design bridal jewelry!


some love from a customer

who wouldn't want to run across this when checking out a blog! I seriously just ran across this and recognized my earrings! Gina of Black Cat Designs 'doodles' in her datebook! Obviously she is one talented artist!

bought these earrings yesterday @ Handmade Market after stalking them on Etsy since last spring! They are even better in person

there was that time when I entered a Reader Challenge titled 'all buttoned up' and was selected as one of the winners!

it was exciting just to see my name and design in print!

no prize money • just JOY!

this was my first attempt at publication. It was SO long ago but those earrings were a hit for a long time. I think those were the earrings that I gave to a soap opera actor from The Guiding Light way back at The Duke Children's Classic Golf Tournament. I recorded that show day after day after day that summer! I never did see an actress with my earrings on. That guy probably gave them to his wife!
