Another Beautiful Market Day!

We had another beautiful sunny Market day this past Saturday, a little cool for this time of year, but I'm not complaining!

The entertainment this week was Stack of Barley, a huge success with the Market goers! Below they are warming up first thing...

People gathered around to listen to them most of the morning...they did some Irish tunes that had people clapping...
Below is a pair of earrings that I hammered with the new square hammer, I like the detailing. The gemstone is topaz...I'm a fan of sodalite vs lapis... sodalite is a deeper darker blue, while lapis is rather pale...this lovely necklace is part of my Heart & Stroke always once sold a donation will be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Yes this is my hand...modeling my fine silver rings...I've been doing some fusing and rather enjoy it...I can do rings resonably well but I would like to make a bangle and for some reason I can't seem to get it to fuse...will have to practice more I guess!



  1. You've inspired me with those specialty hammers. I must get some!!

  2. Looks like a great day. I LOVE open air markets. I used to work at a farmer's market selling raw milk. OH! And hey, I'm ready to order my necklace. Just tell me what I should do. Do I go in through your Etsy store? THANK YOU!!

  3. WONDERFUL...glad to see how much fun you are having w/ your new hammers...LOVE the's nice to donate part of your earnings...yes???

    The Farmers Market continues to bless, I's to another sunny Saturday...:))))

  4. I cannot believe it is market time again. Time flies! I love the jewelry!

  5. It looks so fun at the market and your designs are beautiful as usual!

  6. I am feeling very inspired by your work and those hammers too! I spent my lunch multi-tasking. I put on my tennis shoes, grabbed my phone and took off for a long walk through the local convention center. I put on some great Janis Joplin music and read your blog. What a nice way to spend 40 minutes! Thanks so much for sharing your pictures, they are great!


Thank you for taking the time to is truly appreciated!
