While busy I haven't posted very much lately, but here is a screenshot of an Etsy front page from yesturday. 'Soft', made of such a lovely soothing grey, includes my Felted Floating Saucer Ring.

Last Chance to Vote!





Last chance to vote on Fred Flare.com! As mentioned earlier, I was picked for this year's 'The Next Big Thing' with Framework ring #23.

Read the interview here!

Voting ends today (July 16th) but you can vote now!. And yes, there are some amazing & clever designs but hopefully mine will be the one you pick:)

Cloud Hangers


Love these Cloud Hangers from Fred Flare.

They're sold out but I'm hoping they come back. I adore clouds and am running low on hangers- and the little bump would be great for shirts with thin straps.

This is where I had planned to be today

Photo by Carol Browne as seen on nowpublic.com

Today was going to be an errand day, returning cds & books to the library, mailing things, picking up polishing wheels, supplies, paying for a table at a fair, etc.

A couple minutes before I was about to head out the door I heard about an explosion in downtown Vancouver's core right were I was going to be. Thankfully no one is reported hurt. A bit of smoke, but also a power outage effecting 4,500 businesses. Awful!

So... errands tommorrow? Though I have to admit a small part of me wishes I were posting my own photos of billowing smoke and police. Just my sense of drama.

More pictures of my Framework Ring #23 below! It looks a little different from different angles and is all about carefully arranged proportion's! It's all about negative space, a bit like a string tied around your finger, and a bit like an engagement ring! And it's pretty:) (If I do say so myself.)
