Bangles, Earrings, and Moomintrolls

Reading Moominsummer Maddness these days. We laugh at little My. Did you know the Moomintrolls are fuzzy all over? I didn't! How delightful!

Well, off to make many pairs of earwires now. And then fill an order for my '3 beautiful sisters' bangle trio.

I reworked the satin tab earrings -- I like them with a ring soldered onto the back. I'll post this updated version soon on my Etsy store.

Night night. Chickens all tucked in too.

Happily, sales are trucking along, even as I have ramped back my marketing efforts for summer. Life is hurtling along. But it is fun and I am settling into summer with the kids. Chickens now have a new roosting box inside the shed. No more carrying them morning and evening from and to their roosting box inside my old studio. Though I love to carry them and hold their silky little chicken bodies twice a day, I don't miss trying to dodge (occassionally)poopy chicken feet. I feel better that they are behind four solid walls of wood every night. Many animals lurk at the edge of the woods - nature spares none, and chickens taste so good...apparently.

A new bracelet design on the way - I have made two for me, one for mom and another for my friend. Hers is complete with finger print charms of each of her four children that I made w/ pmc. Awesome! I love it. Features red coral, turquoise, lampwork bead(s), my handmade silver beads etc on leather cord.

Promised myself to be in bed by 10:00.

Good Night! xo Kristen
