hammered jump rings

Happy Friday! It's already shaping up to be a crazy day. I have a hair cut appointment I completely forgot about at 11:45; my husband ran over a bolt yesterday and we had to take his car in to get repaired this morning and I can hear Aeron rolling around in his crib....not taking a nap. Hope things go more my hair. I hope my hair stylist will tame the mop on my head, which I unfortunately have no time to straighten anymore. ;( Today's topic is a continuation of yesterday's discussion about the Snow Queen Necklace. But this time it is a HOW TO make hammered rings . (jump ring that is) At first I was making teeny tiny 6mm soldered jump rings myself, but soon discovered the work to be quite grueling.

Is anyone out there?

Hello and welcome to my first blog post titled, "Is anyone out there?" Today, probably not. However, I build will visit. To make this fun and worth your while, I will have a Secret Tuesday Sale posted every week with a selected item or items from my Etsy Store. Be patient with me, I am a relatively new mom and sometimes my days are started a bit late since I need to feed my little guy first thing...then find my way to the shower. It gets a bit hectic some days managing being a mom, a wife, having a business and being a dancer. Some days I wonder how I will manage. However, if I am not running around like a crazy person then I am totally bored. So to sum this up, what you'll find around here are some sales (woohoo), some musings on my jewelry business (how-to, what's going on, what's new, shopping trips) life as a stay at home mom with a home business and maybe some belly dance stuff.
