Up to Lately

My television debut is going to be this Wednesday on New England Chronicle! For those of you within range, that is at 7:30pm on channel 5 (ABC). 

I should be able to access a link to the segment online after it airs so I will be sure to post it, embarrassed or not! 

The episode is playfully titled "Keep it Symbol" since it is about the Massachusetts state symbols. 

Mixing Materials
I've had some ideas in my crazy head and had a little time to play around.

I love inspirational items and of course gemstones. So pairing them makes me happy.
Strength Necklace
I finally got to use some of the polymer squiggles I made.
Bold Necklace
Courage in life is so important. I never wanted to be on tv so I really had to channel some courage in order to not pass up such a great opportunity.
Courage Necklace
No rhyme or reason here. Just some pretty stones!
Multi Stone Necklace
I also found this ring base in my stuff. No clue where it came from. So I added a cabochon of white howlite. I love the simplicity and now considering making these for my shop. A perfect complement to my earring studs!

A Custom Order
I was asked to make 10 hand stamped strong charms for a customer who will be making mitochondrial disease awareness key chains. 

Thank you for stopping by. Have a creative, fun week! ~Val
