Semi-Annual SALE....and a day in Santa Fe

I finally uploaded and edited some of my Santa Fe pictures from our trip to New Mexico.

But, before that, I'd like to tell you that we put both of our online shops on Sale.
We generally have two sales a year: one at Christmas, and the other during our anniversary month in May.

We bumped up our sale this year a month early.

We have an exciting reason for that, but I'll save that for a near future post.

For now, you can visit our Web and Etsy shops to save 15% on your purchase.
Just in time for Mother's Day!

And now.....some images:




And this is how we rode home.

My parents, my brother and sister's families, as well as our little family were all there: kids and all, except for my brother who was sick at home :(
It was a long, a little exhausting (because, you know, there were 7 little kids!), but fun day.

More pictures coming soon....

We visited Steamboat over the weekend.
It was a quickie, but goodie.

Nothing like escaping for a bit to the mountains to refresh and just plain get the heck out of a town for a bit :)

These photos are excerpts.
Of the weekend.

We have something big coming up.

announcements and flowers

April's giveaway has just gone up this morning on our facebook page.
We will be giving our wrapped wire Encircled cuff this month.
It's super comfy to wear alone, but I have been loving pairing it with a stack of cuffs and bracelets, lately.

Another quick mention:
Our Sway earrings are on SALE this week in both Etsy and our website shops.

And now, here's a peek at what I've been looking at lately:

This gorgeousness is located just across the street from me.
I took about a thousand pictures of those trees that day.

Had to capture it before it's gone :)

Recently, I made some changes to a few designs in the shop.
They've been MIA for a bit while getting upgraded and revamped...

I just re-added this list of babies back to the shop this morning.
The Seven Stars cuff, above, was upgraded to a larger gauge of sterling wire. I like the look better and it feels that much more sturdy. 

The Acuminate earrings have a bit more modern flair now that we run them through the rolling mill. It creates a more rectangular shape to the wire....and yep, like this better, too! 

The Muse earrings and the Paseo de la Losa necklace are now darker.
I oxidize them to bring out the detail and texture.
I think the added depth adds so much more to these designs. I'm super happy with the result.

Neexxxttt...the Hammered Tail hoops are back, as well.
These girls have been around for-ever.
The entire earring is now run through the rolling mill and I have kept, of course, the hammered tail end. Because that's what makes them special ;)

And finally, the Amethyst Burst is back in our Etsy shop with a fresh batch of new stones to choose from.


We just got back from New Mexico, yesterday afternoon, after having spent a whirlwind of a weekend in New Mexico visiting our family. I took loads of pictures and at some point I will get the time to post them here. 
You know that 366 project I was doing??
Yep, I'm still doing it. 

Hard to tell, I know, because I have been vacant around these parts (as well as Flickr's...).
But, I've definitely been keeping up with my daily photographing (for the most part).
I have just been so crazy busy that it's getting ridiculous how little time I have been able to carve for uploading and editing them.

So eventually you are going to get smacked with a ton of pictures all at once :)

Hopefully soon....!
