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

Catching Up

On my reading...

And one of my Etsy friends, Sue, had this little test on her blog... so I tried it too and here are my results... I really think I agree!

Your Word is "Love"
You see life as possibility to form deep connections with a few people.
Relationships are the center of your world, and you always take time to bond with those you love.

You are caring and giving. You enjoy helping those you love.
And when it comes to romantic love, you feel passionately ... even in a very long term relationship.

Send in the Clouds

Time to update the blog... I have been negligent...
Did you ever lie in a field or your yard as a kid and just stare at the clouds? Did you see so many different shapes of animals and things that just made your smile? I guess clouds are timeless and ageless. You can just get lost watching them and sometimes I think that's a good thing! Every artist in this list saw something different in the clouds and I love what they saw!! So please have a look at this CLOUD treasury before it ends Tuesday morning!!

Treasury Love

Today is the last day of my Christmas holiday break, I return to the daily grind again on Monday. I'm so conflicted... I love the freedom of coming and going as the mood hits but I also love the prospect a new semester will bring...

Unless I discover a way to freeze time, Monday is inevitable. So it was such a nice surprise when I checked the Etsy treasuries this morning - my dear friend Jennie included me in her "Yes, I'm Ready!" treasury! Thank you for thinking of me as you put together this beautiful list!! It is active until the wee hours of Monday morning - go have a look at all the gorgeous pieces Jennie included!! And while you're cruising treasuries, please visit Jennie's shop and all her beautiful handmade bowls, infant snuggle sacques, rugs and more at SosoRosey! :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!
