Custom Orders and Some Sushi

I had a couple of more fun custom orders this past week.

This skull lanyard was made for someone attending an upcoming Monsters of Rock cruise.
These skull are creepy and perfect! I have silver ones on order for 4 additional ones I will be making!

These hand stamped tags went to a jewelry designer for creating canine jewelry.
I look forward to seeing what she creates with them. I also stamped a dog ID tag but since it has a phone number on it, I will not be showing that on social media!

I also added some sweet new sterling silver bead caps to my shop this week.
Veggie Sushi
I came across this recipe from Sweet Potato Soul for sushi made with hummus. I have never heard of hummus in sushi before so of course I had to try it!
For veggies I used zucchini, carrots, raw cabbage and arugula. So delicious! 

Jim usually handles the roll making part but I was alone for this one. These were the only photo worthy pieces. I should have taken pictures of some of the others that totally fell apart! Luckily that did not affect the marvelous flavor.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead! ~Val


  1. like the skull jewelry. :) and the handstamped items are just plain cool.

  2. Congrats on those custom orders!

    Your sushi looks great, I've made some for the first time and fortunately, they tasted better then they looked, especially the first ones. Did you make the hummus from scratch? And thanks for introducing me to that blog, I'm always on the lookout for good vegetarian recipes :-)

  3. I love handstamped jewelry. The disks look great!
    So does the vegie sushi!

  4. Yum! Your sushi looks so delicious, Val, and I just love those little hand-stamped pieces.
    Perfect for a very special furry friend.
    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

  13. Cool, ghoulish skulls! Oh I love them. And you are also working with a dog tag designer? That sounds like fun! Awesome bead caps too. When I use to make jewelry, the right bead cap could make all the difference and your are beautiful. Great humus sushi. Would never have thought of that but it looks delicious. Can I have some of your energy? Big hugs!
