Custom Wedding Order

What do I like doing about weddings??  I have always been one who will never get married.  Proof is in the fact that I found it possible to have three baby girls all without being married.  Of course I didn't plan it that way.  But, I always said no one could love me that much.  My daughters, they will love me forever and they won't cheat on me. (My BF put it down better then I have even understood it "I was trying to fill a void". )
Matching Set for Bridesmaids and Maid of Honor, also a small ring for the flower girl.

Rose Gold with Matching Earring in Rose Gold...I comped those.

Amberingz TOWER rings MAde with Swarovski Crystals, Vintage Buttons, and a bit of Silver

I did one pair in Rose Quartz, to change it up a little

Each ring is about and inch and a half high.

I also Hand Stamped Gift Bags and Hand made Tags for the bride to fill out and wrap the rings herself.
.Point, yes I have a point.  Although weddings always irked me, they would make me uncomfortable to the point of exhaustion, I do enjoy the thought of them these days.  AND I love the idea of designing jewelry that will be a part of that splendid day. Especially when the wedding is being held in Hawaii...
5 Sets in Rose Gold..The wedding will be in White, Blue, and a bit of Fuschia.  Hopefully the girls wear them in the service and get a few customers for me..Oh they are in for a treat when they open their Thank You gifts.  I do hope they love them as much as I do..

A piece of My Story - #2 Unedited

Inspired by: Pain, Heartache and a broken soul blessed back into life by a God that believed in me long before I knew him. ( I became a artist when my daughters were illegally ripped from me in 2003.  After I turned the man in who my 5 year old told me molested her.  And because he did not confess in the beginning but made up lies about me CPS took my girls and committed crime after crime to make sure they made there yearly bonus.) I picked up a paint brush and started painting my furniture, one thing after another. I had no clue I possessed a quality that could have changed the path of my life dramatically. I had no signs that I could draw and paint, never knew I was an Artist until at 28 Pain hit so deep into my soul that an array of Color was my only saving grace. I have finally found peace living to tell the stories that most would think have to be fiction..These days my Justice and my Random acts of Chaos keep me sane.  Justice would be the most amazing 3 year old little girl any one could ask for. Today I am on a path to make my craftiness my stage, i can finally admit to myself that there might be some talent here.

I was stuck in a awful job as a Personal Asst in Jan 2009. After having to quit my career as a makeup artist to be a single mom I worried and pondered over what I was going to do with my life.  That is when something greater stepped in my life to remind me that my creating is a gift and I am supposed to be using what I was given. I don't think I was given RSD by chance.  I woke up on a Saturday morning with my left hand from the elbow down to my finger tips completely numb and gray.  I knew something was really wrong.  Fast forward a couple months, my hand never recovered.  The tingle wore off slowly and left 4 out of 5 fingers in the strangest pain i could ever imagine.  Today, it has crept up my arm, 24 hrs a day of constant pain, burning into my wrists and I am even feeling and seeing signs of my right hand losing it's strength.  if you have not heard of RSD Reflex Sympathetic Disorder you can find out more here of boredom and trying to get comfortable with Chronic Pain I started wrapping a few rings, when another of God's gifts noticed my gift and through love and admiration forced me to believe in myself and my work. After choosing the wrong idiots for 33 years I got Dougie. An exception to all the man rules, a believer in God and a soul exactly as honest as mine.  He believed in me and here I am today. Wrapping rings came out of no where, the beginning of crafting came with a loss too deep, and an artist was born out of chance.   With Quotes of Justice, anything from the ocean, its waves or California Beaches, punk rock with reggae beats, the lord who believed in me long before i knew him, the rainbow of every color and a passion for making people find their Unique place in this world that conforms to each other I MAKE LIFE, I MAKE BEAUTY THAT LOVES LIFE AND I MAKE QUIRKY, because no one seems to laugh enough anymore.

My bedroom

bHow silly of me to join in on a Room Photo Swap....Figured i would be getting some photos of true competition..Oh boy...

It taught me that the "Here is my Room" stuff might be a little to juvenile for me. To spare those that were confidant enough to want to show off disastrous pictures of their bedroom i wont state names.  I will be nice I will be nice..Wait?? That was not very nice, was it?
