Scrumptous Goodies

I spent most of 2010 perfecting my art of baking and decorating, while my friends and co-workers reaped the benefits. I never thought about selling these, but I've been approached and I'm like "yeah, I can do this." So, it's official...I'm in the baking business. Price varies based on quantity.

Blank notecards - Angels Abound $20

This set contains 8 blank note cards -- two of each angel, one in black & white, the other in sepia tone. Each card is 5x7, acid-free, with a lab-processed photo attached to the front with photo-safe adhesive. Each card comes with a matching envelope.

I swear I'm addicted to Turqouise!

Wire wrapping beads

Same technique of wire wrapping shown in all images below. Practically any bead can be used. Czech glass beads, pearls and Swarkowski crystals are a few shown here. All contain sterling silver chain and clasps.

Conversation pieces - clasps (From $50 and up)

Talk about a conversation piece. These clasps are sure to attract attention. They are made in India using coins, buttons, watch name it. Generally, clasps are merely functional and forgotten, but these become the centerpiece and should be worn front and center.

I have these two in stock...just waiting for the right piece. Price will be determined after beads are selected.

Cascade of tear drops (From $35 and up)

This was the first necklace that I learned how to's called Cascade of Tear Drops...because all the beads are a tear shape. I wanted to make a necklace to wear on my wedding day using Swarkowski crystals, but I had to first learn how to wire wrap top-drilled beads. The necklace turned out great -- now I've started using other stones. This is my favorite style of necklace -- it looks great with V-necks. You can choose to have the toggle or lobster clasp in the back or exposed in the front.

Turquoise and smoky quartz $75

Talk about making a statement. Chunky smoky quartz beads surround a turquoise disc that was wrapped with sterling silver wire. Completed with sterling silver toggle clasp.
