Hallo, all! I’ve been incommunicado for AGES, but now I’m busy updating everything and getting settled into my new place in Indianapolis. The move was the hardest I’ve ever done... mostly because I was battling my somewhat fragile health (easily exhausted) and a serious time crunch simultaneously (must NOT be so bad about procrastination in future). But I’m here, and this end of the move is so much easier! I will be updating images and jewelry as I get my workshop and photo studio unpacked and set up — stay tuned! In the meantime, my Etsy shop (jewelryoohshiny) is back up and running, and here is a pic of our ne

Thank you, dearling! I LOVE your awesome stuff, too! :love:
Just spent a good 20 minutes looking through your website and gallery instead of doing my homework. Whoops! I promise, one day when I'm making enough money to afford nice things for myself I will buy some of your beautiful jewelry! (it will probably be all earrings because I love wearing long danglies and earrings are my ultimate purchase weakness.)

I love how your creativity is expressed through so many mediums, Catherine. It truly inspires me. I definitely want to get involved in something new, but I just can't decide what to do...right now I'm leaning towards collaging or scrapbooking, something of that sort. I'm not sure, but the prospect excites me. So glad to feel that rush of creativity again. :) 
YAY! I love dangly earrings... and love making them! I'm about to make a bunch for the show tomorrow! Thank you so much for checking out my website... I really appreciate it!

As for $... if you can afford shipping, and will pass out my business cards, I'd be delighted to set you up with a couple of custom pairs! :note: my copper9lives account, and let's talk! I really need help promoting my business... gotta get this sucker launched! (I intend to hit the craft circuit hard next year, with a promotional Valentine's Day sale in conjunction with the Guelph Humane Society, and hopefully my own table at the Aberfoyle Farmer's Market... as well as the spring shows!)

I love making... but isn't that the point of dA? I love being inspired by the wonderful artists here, like you... I hope you have a wonderful time making new things!

:hug: :heart: :love:
