Hurray! I am back into my website after being hacked. It took awhile to get back to Google-based things but I just kept working it.

Here's Lori wearing her new Raku Madness necklace. I think that she looks great in it.

I couldn't stand it. I'm so excited about making new things out of old that I started dismantling the sale. Not all of it but some of it is now in pieces and ready to become new. If you'd like to check on what's still in one piece and still on sale, go to my website at  and scroll down to the sale items. Those that have been taken apart have been removed so they're not there to get in the way. I hope that you'll find something you like that's on sale.

The two necklaces below are available. Remember to take 20% off the price shown for your price.

By the way, I just purchased a strand of Chiapas amber from southern Mexico. A lot of negotiating brought this in at a reasonable price. I will be adding pieces into future necklaces. What's the difference between Baltic and Chiapas amber you ask? Baltic amber was made from fir trees and is about 44 million years old. Chiapas amber is from the extinct Hymenaea mexicana or Hymenaea allendis trees and is between 22.5 - 26 million years old. Both are very old and the Mexican amber is more rare. There just isn't as much of it. By contrast, the African amber that I've made complete necklaces from is much younger, not as hard, and much less expensive. I love amber and will continue to put it in my necklaces - sparingly with Baltic and Chiapas amber and with exuberance with African amber.
