New Earrings Listed Ready to Ship!

As promised I am still listing items in my Etsy Shop “Luster” that are ready to ship! Today I am featuring some of the earrings I now have listed in my shop. The copper earrings feature wire that my husband and I painstakingly removed from our turn of the century farm house. It was originally installed in the 1930’s during the time of rural electrification. I thought it was soo lovely that it needed a new life as jewelry.

Back in the Saddle Again!

Okay so I after 6 weeks of baby bliss, I am back in the saddle again! Well sort time (and baby and 3 year old) permits.

So right now in my shop I have a bunch of items that are currently already made and sitting in inventory listed and are ready to ship. I am doing a limited amount of custom work, purely because I still don't have a great feel for my "free" time yet.

Here are some of the great ring groupings I have to offer in my shop now:
