Things are moving along again

Well I thought I fell of the face of the earth for a while but I'm back. I have been so busy lately I don't know which way is up. I work for the Federal Government and I am the vice president of our local union. I was at a conference in my own home town (beautiful Victoria BC) and got to stay in a swanky hotel. While I was there, I actually managed to get a few custom pieces done. Two down and 11 more to go!! (Gotta love those girls at work!) And speaking of sales, I FINALLY got my first sale on ETSY!!! I am so thrilled! My black and aluminum byzantine bracelet will be on its way to London England tomorrow. I just amazes me that someone that far away is looking at my web site.

So speaking of jewelry, I tried using copper for the first time and this is the newest piece that I have done. I think it turned out alright. I really like working with copper, it seems to close so easily. I've got big plans for copper, so I'll post more pictures when I have a chance to 'play around' with my rings.

Well I need to get back to work and start cranking out my pieces that people are waiting for but before I go, I just really wanted to urge the people in the states to make sure they get out there and vote in November. This year Canada had an all time low voter turnout with only 58% of eligible voters making the effort to go to the polls. Very sad really. Remember.... Canada cares who you vote for your president cause it affects us too!
