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

Today has been an eventful day! The NCAA Men's Baseball tournament is in full swing here and while my team (Georgia Bulldogs) lost yesterday we won today and live to see another day of play. We are in the "loser's bracket" - yuk - but hopefully we'll pull it out tomorrow. We have to win 2 games so make it into the Monday night game! Goooo DAWGS!

I have a new item up for sale entitled "Rio Grande" - if you like things BIG then this necklace is for you! It has a presence and will certainly spark some conversation!

Check out "BeadNest Designs" on Etsy! :)

New Listing of Enchanted Purple

It seems like it's been forever since I listed something new. Things have been so hectic with my daughter's birthday and the ending of the school year, I just haven't had the chance to create. But with all of that behind me, I'm back in the studio and ready to go! Yeah!! The first new item would have to be made with my most favorite color - purple!! I love the sparkle of these faceted cubic zirconia beads and the shine of the silver.

They are dainty and feminine with a new look for the earwires! Check them out!! :)

ETSY Front Page!

One of the things I really love about ETSY are their treasuries!! They're lots of fun to create and I'm always inspired by all the amazing artists and their beautiful creations!

A bonus of creating treasuries is to be chosen for Etsy's front page and... well... my treasury was on their front page last night!! Yeah!!! I was so excited and now I'm ready to create another treasury... as soon as that blue box pops up again! :)
Here's the full page view but... not very clear so the other shot includes and up close and personal look at some of the BOLD and BEAUTIFUL pieces of my treasury. BTW, that was the title! :D

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!
