Your work is so lovely! I love the special pieces that you find to put into your jewelry. I would really like to learn how to do that bezel set style.

I like the bracelets--I get so amazed at the talent I see from jewelry artists. Beautifully done.

Hi Hot Rocks- I love making the pieces but I do have a hard time packing them up and shipping them as they sell- so many have memories for me because I can recall exactly which day and on which beach I found them!

In regards to bezel setting, believe it or not, there's a really good tutorial on the web:

I can't tell you how many times I read and reread this- even in the midst of trying to solder. I was able to correct problems with my flame and temperature just by going back to see what she did. You can learn a lot!

Of course you have to have the tools before you can try it, but I just made my list and bought over time.

NICO- thank you so much for your kind compliments. Sometimes I get self conscious that no one likes my pieces other than me (especially during slow sales slumps!) so it's a real uplift to get a comment like yours! :)
