Good morning :)
I am busy working on the computer this morning: convos, flickr, facebook, designing and the blog this morning. I thought I would share a couple of custom orders I completed recently.

I cannot tell you how much I love Botswana Agate. Perhaps its the gray...the markings? Whatever the allure is for me, this stone is just flat-out gorgeous.

I read recently that some 'expert designers' declared this year to be the year of the color turquoise. We shall see.....I love this color in accent pieces for sure ;)

Well, I wanted to share one exciting piece of information with you all....last month, right before the holidays, this necklace:

...found its way into an Etsy treasury that made it to the front page of Etsy. I've mentioned in the past that the exposure from being on the front page of Etsy is tremendous, right? Well, a costumer for the show, Grey's Anatomy, saw the necklace on Etsy and ordered it to be worn on the show 36 hours later (I had to overnight the necklace). I can't tell you how thrilled I was with all the views I received from that treasury, but to top it off with that high-profile sale was a big fat cherry on top to say the least!!! I won't even pretend I didn't celebrate a little after sending it out ;)

So I'm going to continue plugging away here and then I'm going to get out in the warm Colorado sun for a run. My hip is annoying the hell out of me....lots of running and stretching is a great cure for it.

Have a fabulous day! ;)

The necklace is amazing and I'd love to get one for myself. That ring is also divine - I agree with you on the grey!
