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

It's About TIME...

The past weeks have been hectic at best. But as this week winds down and I look back, I realize how blessed I am. My cancer surgery last week is nothing but a memory! The final pathology reports are in and while my doctor did remove more cancer, he feels he got it all and that's great news. We'll just monitor things and if it returns, we'll deal with it. But I feel good - even with the slurred speech. So... Mr. Policeman, please don't pull me over, I promise I am NOT drunk!!

I am trying to get back to "normal" things and of course Etsy's treasuries are part of that plan! Here's the treasury scoop...

First, I'm featured in Amanda's "Tickle Me Pink Please!" treasury. She's such a sweetie and wonderful Etsy friend!! Please visit her shop, Wildlifer78 - it rocks!!!

While Amanda was creating her "Pink" treasury, I was curating one of my own "Come On... Don't FALL For This" and you might be able to guess... it's about...

FALL!! I love this season and all that it brings - beautiful colors, Thanksgiving, relief from summer heat and of course, football!!!!

Check out both treasuries while you can and join in on the Etsy fun!!! :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!
