Save small businesses! Small soap, cosmetics, and body care companies in danger!

Laws are being passed to protect our food, but somehow cosmetics and body care got thrown in with the mix. If the FDA Globalization act of 2008 is passed, small business owners will be hit with fees ranging from $2,000 to $10,000. Please check out this video and sign the petition!

New items! Pendants galore.

No, it has nothing to do with politics. But it seems all of these conventions are corroding my left brain with rhetoric.

Not to worry...this sparkly blue pendant will bring you out of the "not really a recession" blues! Suspended in a hammered sterling silver frame, this single light blue vintage crystal with aurora borealis coating spins on silver wire and gleams in all kinds of light, throwing little rainbows to every corner of your heart. You might even choose to hang it in your window on the rare occasion it isn't around your neck.

I have to go turn off CNN now.

*pendant measures 1 3/4" long and 1 1/4" wide. Sale is for pendant only.


Korean jade, rose quartz and amethyst come together in this candy-colored pendant. Suspended in a hammered sterling silver, these gems are bright and cheery. Perfect for Sunday Brunch with my hammered hoops, or as an accent piece to add a splash of color to a snazzy linen blazer, this delicate pendant is tasty but in a figurative way. Nibble at your own risk.

*note, sale is for pendant only*

measures 1 1/4" including loop


Making a change!

Holly from the Gonnamakeachange blog asked me to write a feature article about starting my new business, as well as www.etsy.com.

Her blog is about, well, making a change in the lives of others, and in your own life. She has some wonderful articles and stunning pictures of her travels. I hope you have a moment to check it out.

I enjoyed writing this article, and I hope you enjoy reading it!
