This Week's Blog Post!

Rose Quartz and Copper
This week a customer asked me to change a pair of my rose quartz earrings from sterling silver to copper.

This was my first time pairing rose quartz with copper. So gorgeous together!!! I would typically pair copper with earthy tones so this certainly has brought me out of that box!

Tie Tacs
I think I am going to start selling my tie tacs in sets instead of individual listings.

This is my first listing including black onyx, natural mother of pearl and blue paua shell. A great set for a man with style!

eBay Purchase
I refueled on my body mist this week via eBay! I recently switched to Victoria’s Secret’s Bombshell which I love!

I did save a few bucks off retail as well as a trip to the mall which I do not have time for!!!! This yummy fragrance is a blend of passion fruit, peony and vanilla. It is made in the USA too which is a nice sentence to read on a product these days.

Puppy Love Creations
I attended a baby shower last weekend where I gave this super sweet card to the mom to be.

This was made by Deana of Puppy Love Creations on Etsy. Her cards are adorable. Besides other cute baby cards like this one

She also makes wedding cards.

and beautiful sympathy cards.

Deana also does cross stitch that is ready to frame! This piece is gorgeous!

Stop by Deana’s shop next time you are in need of a sweet greeting card!

Have a wonderful week everyone!!! ~Val


  1. You are so right. Rose quartz and copper go so well together! Great job! Ooh, the cards are really cute, specially the baby one :)

  2. The copper makes for such a rich combo of color. love it! I'll have to try that.

  3. Copper and pink quartz are so lovely together. I have a beautiful copper chainmaille and rose quartz necklace I got in 2010. It is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.
    I can't wear copper ear wires but if I could I would get you to make me a pair. Those are so lovely! ♥

  4. The rose quartz looks beautiful with copper :) What a lovely combination.

    Thanks again for your lovely comment. I think branching out and trying something new will definitely help revive me.

  5. I love rose quarts and it's my stone!! Also... scrapbooking cards are so lovely! Have a good sunday! Hughs.

  6. That color combo has a delicate and ethereal quality. I've never worn copper earwires, wondering...

    The cardmaker has some really pretty cards. TFS everything!

  7. Copper and pink look great! These earrings attracted my attention as soon as the site loaded :)

  8. Personally I think that nothing beats the excitement of opening a mailed card or letter in comparison to today's texting and emailing! Those Handmade cards are beautiful and that is also a plus!

    Hope you have a great week Miss Val!

  9. What a beautiful collection of cards, that for sharing her link. The rose quartz and copper are a great combination, very rich.

  12. The rose quartz really does look great with the copper - beautiful!

  13. Everything is fabulous. I don't know much about gem stones but they are very precious in your art work. And it is interesting that cooper is blended with earrings so beautifully.

    I love also these beautiful cards; there is so much warmth and love in them.

  14. The copper looks great with the pink! And I bet the tacks will do well in sets.

  15. Love, love, love those earrings Val!!
    The copper is gorgeous with the rose quartz.
