A Whole Mess of Silver

Picked up the pendants I made for my friend's wedding yesterday. Man, they look fab! They've got this beautiful gloss to them and are just so eye-catching.


I reached 200 Etsy sales today... My goal was to hit this number by the end of August and I did it with a couple days to spare!

No time to celebrate though; I'm stocking up for the holidays and working like mad on some new pieces. I've got so many ideas, I'm overwhelmed with thoughts about what I want to start working on first.

Longitude Earrings - Delicate Hoops in Silver, Brass, and Copper

I just finished a few pairs of these earrings -- of course, I had to create a pair for myself! I wore them today and I'm loving them. They are so long and swishy, really fabulous. I feel like a celebrity in them!!

I'm calling them my Longitude earrings, cause they remind me of learning about latitude and longitude back in elementary school geography class!

A Custom Order

I love making custom pieces! It's so exciting to create something tangible from a client's ideas. This one is for a friend who's getting married; she's giving it to her bridesmaids.

I'll be picking up the sterling version from the casters soon... but for now, here's the still-in-progress wax model:

Working with glass today

A long necklace with sterling squares and a hand cut glass charm

Another very simple piece -- I'm digging on the memory wire...

Sprout Is Going On Vacation....

It's August, the time of year when most everyone in NYC escapes to the Hamptons. I, however, prefer my vacays to be a little more exotic... so I'm going to Tennessee :) Considering the differences between NYC and TN, this trip kinda could be equated to traveling to a foreign country. Only not as glamorous.

I'm hoping I'll return relaxed, refreshed and with some new ideas for the 2007 Sprout holiday line!
