Looking back at 2009

January is a time for reflection, so I thought I'd take a look back at what I accomplished work-wise during 2009. I keep an inventory for bookkeeping purposes, so it's pretty easy to tally my production. It's amazing what 6 to 8 hours a day in the studio four or five days a week can produce! And for every five pieces that make the grade, one goes into the reject jar....

Earrings: Almost 1,000 pairs. And since I make my own earwires, I used over 350 feet of silver wire!

Pendants on chain: 268

Neckwires and necklaces: 126

Yikes, I'd better get crackin' on making stuff for 2010! Happy New Year!


  1. What a fantastic year - one of success and stunning creativity!

    I look forward to seeing more in 2010!

    Bonne Année.

  2. So beautiful! I have always loved your necklaces. The combination of silver and polymer clay is a real favorite of mine. Here's to an equally prolific and successful 2010!

  3. I like the necklaces they are pretty amazing. They look trendy, very different from the usual jewelry.
    Great Work!!

    While browsing on the internet found wooden jewelry at So would like to share.
