Peak Baggers, Wind Rivers, Hikers, Ride the Divide and Cowgirls!

Written July 4, 2014

I've made some fun souvenirs for all of you outdoors fans. Backpackers, hikers, bicyclists, bikers, peak baggers....These medallions are in sterling silver or bronze and I've started with a few choices: Gannett Peak, Fremont Peak, Cirque of the Towers, Wind River Range, Wyoming, and Wyoming Cowgirl. Is there a peak you've climbed and want to remember? I can customize one special for you.

Happy 2014, the number 14 didn't have much significance to me but I heard somebody say that it is doubly lucky because it is the number 7 x 2. Also, my husband said it would be a great year to hike a "14er", one of the peaks in Colorado that is over 14,000 ft, we'll see if we have the chance to make it down there.

Handmade Findings

Written September 24, 2013

To customize the jewelry that I make, I usually handmake the "findings". Findings are what jewelers call clasps, ear wires, pin backs, etc. Basically the hardware of the piece of jewelry. Most of my beaded necklaces and some of my silver chains have a simple sterling silver hook and loop. I like these because they are unusual while being secure.
