The Modern Dog Tag

The Modern Dog Tag necklace- just in time for the holidays!
Unisex, one-of-a-kind, unique- the gift this season that's both fashion forward and timeless.....
Choose from a variety of stones, antique coins, tokens, keys, and of course- vintage dog tags.
 The dates in the tags range from the 1930's to the 1980's.  Inquire about your birth year and I'll check  my inventory.  Visit my Etsy shop that features a small selection.  Message me if interested in seeing more.  These are going fast!
 Please note that all the antique coins, keys, and tokens are lightly cleaned and maintain a distressed patina normal with age.  
A sneak peak at the bracelets tomorrow! ;-)

~A New Year - Focus~

It's been almost 2 years since I've posted here.  So much has changed in my life, but the one thing that hasn't changed is the need to create.  Creative hands and minds never sit idle...but they need to re-charge and re-group.  My journey has brought me back here- where I started sharing my work back in 2009.  Social media is out of control in 2014!  So many places to read, get inspired, chat, message, etc....

How do I stay focused?  This year I started by immersing myself back where the inspiration began- my favorite bloggers.  Peaking into their studios, soaking in all the visual images, reading the tutorials, reading their tweets, following their Instagram....

My next post will be new work...YES!  New work!  Designs I haven't shared in far too long.  I hope you bare with me as I begin this process again.  I need to stay focused in the studio and resist the urge to check feed every 15 minutes!  My other recent distraction....

....This "polar vortex" we're struggling through.  People and machines can't possibly function in this extreme cold.  Even my dog doesn't want to step outside!  This storm has literally changed lives.  I will return soon with more ramblings and images that I hope will inspire you.

Happy 2014!
