Lucky Me!

Heather Alexander makes beautiful pendants and jewelry out of sea glass as well as creating children’s jewelry and other items. She also has a great blog on which she ran a contest this weekend. I was the lucky winner, and I am getting my very own sea glass pendant from her shop! I’m so excited. Go visit her store and blog and show her some love for giving me love!

Twisted Green Contest

Courtney Watson has the TwIsTeD shop on Etsy. All of her very cool jewelry and accessories are made from recycled material. For Earth Day, she is running a contest: send her a story of how you are living green, and you may be selected to win a great t-shirt. More details are on her blog; link below.

If you are one of my students, you can tell her about how my scouring of the trash cans after class for recyclable materials has made you very conscious about recycling! : )

Shelter Dogs Necklace

I bought a great pendant supporting animal adoption from inabit on Etsy. (Inabit has more listed in her shop.) Many of her pieces are inspired by her lab, Larry, and I love the sentiments, style, and colors in her work. (She also has prints of original collages.)

Here’s what I made with the pendant I purchased (modeled with the help of Harvey):

FYI: Etsy is the site where I sell my jewelry. There are lots of fun teams and forums that help me procrastinate! This necklace is for me–not for sale! : )
