My husband calls me his little mixologist. I have to admit that is a pretty apt description.

This gorgeous bracelet has been a long time coming. I have had these gorgeous mother of pearl flowers for a while.

A couple of weeks ago, we went to a bead and gem show at the fairgrounds. Tonya was like a kid in the candy store.

Hello my name is Elizabeth, and I am Tonya’s sister and “apprentice”, as she would call it. I am helping her out for the next couple of months.

One of my suppliers was having a sale that I just could not resist, so I strolled through to see what kind of new beads I could find. I was instantly drawn to these unique leaf beads.

I must admit, I have never really been drawn to crystal beaded jewelry. But now I am quite jazzed about using them more often in my designs. Let me tell you what brought about my change of heart…

Did what, you may ask? I am proud to say I have finally made measurable progress in re-opening dainty-jewelry.com.

I had the very special privilege to design wedding jewelry for a close friend of mine. I was so touched that she remembered my passion and asked me.
