Treasury Time!

I was SOOO drawn to these beads when I saw them in a thrift shop! 

Such a gorgeous shade of faded lemon yellow, clearly they had some age to them and I couldn't wait to use them in one of my pieces!!!

Looks like I'm not the only one who appreciated the luscious lemony goodness!  Since these earrings have gone into my Etsy store, they've been featured in three lovely treasuries!  I am honored to be a part of these beautiful collections!

Check them out, and be sure to visit these great shops!

Thanks guys!!!

Who Am I? And What Am I Doing Here?

Hi, I'm finally back, and this is my jewelry/crafty/createy/whatever blog.  Who am I?

In a nutshell, and in no particular order,
  • I like shiny things.  I've been making/collecting/obsessing on jewelry forever.  Well OK, since high school, but that was at least an ice age ago. 
  • I am wife to a wonderful man, and mommy to an incredible daughter on the spectrum.  Collectively we call ourselves Team Nugget, and they are my Sweet Nuggets of Goodness...I thought that would be a  fitting name for my Etsy shop!
  • I'm easily distracted.  Which makes it hard to get anything done, especially since I have a four-year old with the same attention span.  It also means that at any given time, I have at least 3 or 4 projects I'm working on.  Arg!!!
  • I can be very silly.  Consider yourself warned.
Want to hang out? 

I hope so, otherwise I'll just be talking to myself.  And that would just be silly...

All for now,
Nugget  :-)
