Penelope- SOLD

This pair is very purple! In fact, they are probably my favorite right now & if no one buys them quick, I may just have to keep them for myself!


Similar to the larger-beaded "Rouge" posted below, but with a smaller bead!

Rose Spiral


Making Progress...

The Lord has been working some really amazing things out in my life lately... details to come at a later time when there's more of the story to tell! Anyway, I have updated some of my posts and images, so you can tell what is still available from my earring collection! In the headings, I have indicated "SOLD" beside the name of each piece that is no longer available, BUT wanted to leave the pics up, in case someone would like something similar. Stay tuned today... I made 3 new pairs of earrings last night & will be posting images once I have the chance to capture them this afternoon!

A word of encouragement for today, that has brought immense strength and depth to my week... Psalm 37 (the whole thing, but I'm just going to hi-light a few of the verses below)

3Trust in the LORD and do good;
   dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the LORD,
   and he will give you the desires of your heart.
 5 Commit your way to the LORD;
   trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
   your vindication like the noonday sun.
 7 Be still before the LORD
   and wait patiently for him;

39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD;
   he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
40 The LORD helps them and delivers them;
   he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
   because they take refuge in him.

More pics coming soon!

So, I made some new earrings and a bracelet yesterday, but sold the earrings before I could even snap a picture of them! I'm excited & encouraged that some of you have purchased jewelry from me already and cannot thank you enough!!!

Happy Thursday to you and may the Lord bless & keep you.

Big News... Big bills...

Ok, so last Thursday, I received my unofficial acceptance to Richmont! Rejoice with me!!! This Monday, I received in the mail my formal acceptance letter, as well as some further direction about my decision to attend there in the fall of this year. This whole process is going to take some legit faith and funding- both of these come from the Lord, so I am praying some pretty radical things right now & would love your support. First, I am praying that if this is not what the Lord has for me, to please slam the doors shut in my face. Second, I am praying that He would use this whole experience to grow my faith in Him (which is scary, because in order to grow, our faith must be put to the test and refined by fire). Thirdly, I am praying for $400 in extra income to send to the school to secure my spot in the fall class. (praise the Lord I have sold some earrings! Thanks, ya'll!)
There are many other prayers to be prayed, but I want to take this whole process one step at a time. Looking at it in its entirety is far too overwhelming since the cost of attending is so great. I also covet your prayers concerning the scholarships I will be applying for in the coming weeks.

I read some very encouraging scripture this morning concerning riches... 1 Chronicles 29 regarding gifts for rebuilding the temple. David's praise to the Lord starting in verse 10 is beautiful...

"Praise be to you, O Lord, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. 11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. 12 Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. 13 Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. 14 But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand." ...

(bold emphasis added by me!) Be blessed!

Crazy Day!

I am trying oh-so-hard to post each day, so sorry I missed ya yesterday! It was however, quite the amazing day! My head just keeps filling up with great ideas for jewelry and I have a bracelet and earring set in the works! Also, I found out yesterday that I have officially been accepted to Richmont for the fall! Woohooooo! We praise the Lord! (and ask Him to provide the money it will take to go there!)

I left work, caught a bite to eat, practiced some songs with a friend for this weekend, then made it just in time to bible study where we listened to a sermon by John Piper about God's sovereignty. Gooooood stuff!
Anyway, big weekend ahead- leading worship with a good friend of mine. I'm excited. I have this other song stuck in my head about God right now....

"You reign in all the earth. You reign in all the earth my God! You reign in all the earth, You reign in all the earth my God! Your mercy, Your mercy has stolen my heart... Your mercy! I lift my hands to Your Holy place, You hear my prayer, my cry.... You reign in all the earth...." Amen!

Purple Poppy

You know, I don't think I'm going to get tired of coming up with fun names for these pieces!

Turquoise Treasure- SOLD


Excited to present to you...

two new pairs of earrings for today! I just got home from a long day of work, catching dinner with a sweet friend of mine, and choir practice. Phew! What a day! The first thing I did was put on pajamas and wash my face (that always makes me feel like a new woman) and now here I am writing to my two lovely followers!
I hope that you enjoy the two new photos!

Sunny Day- SOLD

Inspired by our lack of it yesterday, I bring you, "Sunny Day":

Busy Bee...

Working on some new pieces today- hopefully I can get some images captured & posted this evening! Stay tuned!

Launching this project has taken a lot of sleep time... I've been encouraged by the Proverbs 31 woman in verses 17-18...

 "She sets about her work vigorously;
   her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
   and her lamp does not go out at night.

It is my prayer that this trading become profitable- and lately, my lamp has NOT gone out at night!
