There is a little bit of a thaw going on here in Vermont. It's been a long winter and though I'm not a fan of the cold and dark, there's something about the drawing in it allows, that actually makes it difficult for me to accept the spring I've been wanting. More snow is coming I hear, but I think it will be kind of like Indian Summer, except reversed. Spring is coming, like it or not and just as every year, I know I'm going to like it!

I'm going to be introducing something very new in my jewelry soon - silver necklaces and stamped charms - I'll be stamping these little star charms myself, so that I can offer a touch of personalization with initials. Also cute and teeny sea shell and silver heart and arrow charms.

I long searched for quality jewelry components made in the USA and am happy to say I've found them. Each charm and pendant base is solid pewter, plated in 925 silver. Over the next week I'm going to finalize my necklace designs; after that I'll send samples to my photographer and then introduce the new pieces on my website, where they will be exclusively beginning in April. Send me a message with your email address if you would like to be added to my newsletter list and get notified when the new collection is out.
