This paperweight finally arrived safely to it's new home in Singapore. It was purchased as a gift for his parents, which was very thoughtful.

Little Darling Pendants

These Little Darling pendants are my latest creations added to the stained glass collection. They are now available for sale in my Etsy shop, after lots of changes and getting on my daughter's last nerve. I got the idea for them after I received a shipment for my supply shop and these charms were part of it. I laid them down and it just happened to be near a piece of glass. That's when the concept was born. There were lots of changes and decisions to make about how I wanted to present these Little Darlings. What you see is exactly how I envisioned them. Please let me know what you think.

In April of 2012 I opened a jewelry supply shop on Etsy and named it TreeChild1 Jewelry Findings And Supplies. The name comes from my tree hugging daughter and my avatar is of her sitting under a tree reading a book, which is her favorite pastime. Little did I know that it would take off so fast. With that said....I've been very busy. I was so busy at one time that I didn't have time to create any new items. I do now because I made a schedule, and I stick to it. The above picture shows a few of the items I carry and I'm always adding more. Come visit and browse around to see what I have to offer. www.TreeChild1.etsy.com

These are my latest business card holders, made last week. Its very unusual for me to use the same piece of glass for business cards because I like each one to be unique. In this case they are different styles so its ok. They are now available in my Etsy shop.

Just Thinking

I took a day trip yesterday and the ride was long, much longer than I remember. It turned out to be a trip of deep thought....thoughts of how far I've come since I made the decision to pursue my passion full time. None of it could have been done without the support of my family. I also thought about my customers. I am always honored when someone chooses one of my pieces or commissions me, out of the thousands and thousands of artists out there, to make something for them. It doesn't matter if its the smallest piece I make or the biggest, they all receive the same amount of attention to the choosing, cutting, foiling, grinding and soldering of the glass. Trust in my ability to bring someone's vision to life is part of what drives me to do my best in what I do. I'm just very grateful to have supporting people in my life, including in my business. Thank you.

Oh No!!! I didn't realize that I hadn't posted anything in so long. Sorry for the delay. I come back to Blogger and the whole format has changed. I've been working on new designs and commissioned orders for the last few months, which is good. The picture of the sun catcher below is one that I'm going to make a few of, just to see how it goes. She is my first one and I'm giving her as a gift. More coming soon. Pictures of the commissioned pieces are also coming soon. Enjoy your moment.
