I love nature and being outside either on dry land or on the water. This is where I can find peace. All my designs are inspired by nature. They are carefully handcrafted combining precious and semi-precious gems, nature’s bounty such as shells, seeds, coral, etc. with sterling silver, 14 kt gold or 14/20 gold-filled findings and beads.

My desire is to provide quality artisan jewelry to discriminating individuals at an affordable cost, most often below the cost of costume jewelry. Why wear mass produced jewelry when you can select jewelry as unique as you are?

Is it a man thing? Asking for directions

O.k. so here I am with only one post and still more questions than ever.  I'm not a man so I'm not averse to asking for directions and will when I can find some one not so busy that I don't feel I'm bothering them when I decide to ask.  Another problem is who to ask that would have the expertise.  I'm leaning toward the younger generation but they are all busy leading their own lives.  That old song "the cat's in the cradle with the silver spoon, little boy blue ...." is becoming all too real.

I will conquer this when I have more computer time.  At the time I'm sharing.  Now I'm all for sharing but it does slow the process down.

But the good news is I'm having a sale in my etsy shop  www.whimsea.etsy.com and anyone who reads this gets the coupon code "Blog 20% off" which just needs to be placed in the notes to seller on your Paypal directions and I'll refund your discount right away.  Because my prices are so low to begin with I can't combine special offers.  So you get some great high quality artisan jewelry inspired by nature designed to inspire you at a unbelievable price.  Gift giving is so easy.  Coupon code good through September 11, 2010.

Learning to Blog is like . . .

O.K. so here I am trying to learn how to set up a blog page.  It feels a little like learning to walk.  You've just learned to pull yourself up by holding on to something and you let go and take that first step.  If you're lucky you'll take a few wobbly steps before you hit the floor, but thank goodness you're short and the floor is not too far away.  It will be interesting as I stumble through this process learning how to make this page a great resource for fellow jewelry makers, keep in touch with friends, clients and family and just share in this life we are all living.

Take time out today to enjoy life.
