Thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Robin & I've been creating "wearable art" since 2003. If you're looking for handcrafted jewelry with a unique and affordable twist, I specialize in pieces that have a variety of gemstones, American-made handcrafted lampwork glass, Swarovski crystal and hand-forged/wire-wrapped metals. I use only quality components so my jewelry can become a cherished treasure for you or someone special!

If you see something here you like but prefer a different color or have your own vision of piece of jewelry - let me know - I love doing custom pieces.

Thanks and have a great day! :D

Every month I have a "Month of the Year" sale. So... how this sale works... I choose an item and it's listed in my Etsy store for the same amount as that month of the year. Since this is April - the 4th month - this month's item is just $4.00! Now you may be thinking... how long will I keep the item listed at it's sale price? Well... this is part of the fun - it's a secret, a gamble, take a chance - you just never know when it will return to its normal retain price!

This month, the sale item is a pair of deep green hand-painted ceramic beads with a southwestern flair and accented with Bali silver and Swarovski crystal - all wrapped with sterling silver wire and dangling from sterling silver earwires.

Check out this fun sale!! :D

WOW... I am SO excited!!

I thought Sunday would turn out to be just another day. Boy, was I wrong!!

Within a couple of days I met the neatest lady who was nurturing a spectacular idea - an artisan boutique. I'm so excited to officially announce that my jewelry has become part of "NOURISH." My pieces will be included with so many other amazing artists who specialize in a variety of media. It's an honor to share the space with them.

Check out the "Nourish" blog and if you're in the Athens area please stop by and check us out! The grand opening is tomorrow night so it should be a fantastic day!! :)

Gymnastics rules in our house! My daughter is a competitive gymnast and we travel all over the State for her to compete. We also love the University of Georgia Gym Dogs and never miss a home meet. On March 29, 2008 the Gym Dogs won their 16th SEC Championship and it was every bit as exciting as we could hope!! In April '08, UGA won their 4th consecutive National Championship at home in Athens GA!!

In 2009 - the theme was "All In For 10" and the GymDogs successfully captured their record setting 10th overall and 5th consecutive national championship!

As the 2010 GymDog season begins, Jay Clark takes the helm as the new coach for the UGA Gymnastics program. We're looking forward to an exciting season!

Goooo Dawgs!
