Her shop is full of handmade artisan jewelry of wire, metal, glass, and gems.  Here are some of my favorites...

You Rock-artisan made polymer clay beads, handmade bead caps and chain necklace set with earrings

Sugilite drop earrings-sterling silver scroll pattern-OOAK

Simple sterling silver hoops-everyday wear

Check out her shop and blog, and see what's there that might be calling to you...  You can even add her on Facebook!

BlogCarnival: Inspiration
