My ring collection

Filed under: Luscious Metals,Natha Perkins,rings,www.natha — natha @ 5:41 pm

I used to collect jewelry. My rule was that I couldn’t buy a piece that I could make myself. Now a days I just collect and wear my own jewelry, partly because I just adore it (am I allowed to say that?) but also because I’m my own best advertisement and I like having a personal archive of favorite pieces that I have made in the past. It’s fun to examine old pieces and see how my design and craftsmanship have evolved over the years.
This is about 1/3 of my ring collection. I have included most of my favorites here, rings that I have made and rings that were given to me by my most precious people. I made 8 of these rings (can you spot them?) and there are 5 wedding rings among them (not all mine!!).
By the way, I just started selling my infamous Jewel Rings online in my Smashing Darling Store…Check them out- they’re fabulous!

Kristin Fitzgerrell, who does mixed media wall art has put together the most charming little shop in the Holiday Neighborhood in Boulder. Seriously, there are many local artisans who are showing their work and this is COOL stuff. One of a kind wall lamps, English Retreads purses and bags, jewelry, even sweet furniture. Come on up and do your holiday shopping, save money by buying directly from the artist and support local business and our economy. Phew- I think I said it all.

Okay, it's true…I secretly love whimsical

More cool gift ideas! I just stumbled across the sweetest little store on Etsy. Middleburg Folk Art Studio, original papier mache and fabric sculptures by artist Susan Havens-Morris. I am in love with these amazing little papier mache creations! I seriously want about 2/3 of the items in the store, but that pink cupcake….
Oh and Middleburg is Green…all of their papier mache pieces are made from 100% recycled ground newspaper. Not just beautiful smart too.

The Pink Cupcake Box that will be mine soon… I hope

Okay, I’ll take this beautiful poppy garland too!

Ummm…birds and cake- 2 of my favorite things

Another amazing gift idea

Filed under: Diffraction,gift ideas,Luscious Metals,Natha Perkins — natha @ 2:53 pm

Wine charms are a fabulous idea for so many reasons. The problem is that each charm is usually so unremarkable that it doesn’t really do a proper job of reminding you which wine glass is yours. “Did I have the red beads or the green?” These delightful charms by Diffraction are so lovely and visually luscious that you might want to employ them to do more jobs around the house than just wine glass guarding… Only $22 for a set of 5. They have more than fruit, leaves and flowers, there is the Chicago series, the Paris series and the silver series as well Order them from Diffraction on
