Other news this week
Talk about neglect! I don't remember the last time I updated my Gallery Photos page. I spent today cleaning out, updating, and organizing it. Please take a look when you have a minute.
My awesome daughter Kathy let me snap some pics this week. Here she is modeling some recent pieces. Kathy makes my jewelry look great, doesn't she? :-)
I've been working a lot with pennies and nickels for Winterfair. All the pics above (except for the pendant) are pennies or nickels. And here is my fav so far -- the chain and clasp are handcrafted of sterling silver, the leaves are fold form pennies, and the ovals are hammered nickels.
Have a great week, and I hope to hear from you!

I really like the dark silver ones because of the use of texture and mixed metal.

i love the "copper leaves" for my daughter, Katie Ehlen Thompson, as they would go beautifully with a necklace I bought her in Colorado. She is also so appreciative of your work! Good luck with your venture!

oh my gosh you have the necklace to go with the earrings!!!! What a great pairing and gift. How do I order online???

Ok...Now I'm even more impressed and like the "penny" ones since I know what they're made from. Had to change my "wish".
Hi Dinah and Kellie, thanks for the nice nice comments!
Hi Ellen, thanks so much! I know what you mean, I fell in love with fold forming when I saw it. Have you been to our fold forming facebook page then? If not please join us there and post your work when you have some (finished pieces, practice, whatever you like.) http://www.facebook.com/foldforming

I am constantly amazed at the things you make, I have been from the time you first started making things. SO much talent, I'm glad you discovered this was all within you! I like ALL of 3 and would wear all of them but the leaves are my favorites. When trying to decided about new jewelry, clothing, etc I always ask myself...when I reach in my closet (or jewelry box) would I grab this "thing". If the answer is no I leave it. The answer is yes for all 3 of these earrings. Good luck at Winter Fair! KMT

I like the ones made from nickels. I love that texture and shape.

Great stuff Sue. All three are lovely, but I think my favorite are the ones in the middle made out of pennies. Good Luck at winter fair.

I love all three, but the two made from coins are my favorite, maybe just because the green stone is so summery and it's winter now.

Those nickel earrings are fantastic! I love that they're speckled -- like a cross between a robin's egg and 5 cents!
Leslie, Amy, Martina, Dana, Nikki, and Lindsay, thanks for your entries and all the nice comments. It's great to see friends and ETC team members here!

I like all three earrings but I have some of your copper earrings so I am interested in winning the green and silver ones. I like them because they are a combination of sophisticated and whimsical. I know everyone sees different things in an abstract design...the whimsical impression I see chubby little dancers in puffy green bubble costumes getting ready drop into a gentle bubble dance on the stage in a local alternative performance space :)

Sue,All of them are lovely and I am so psyched for you making it to Winter Fair. I hope it is a wonderful experience for you and you get LOTS of sales!! I love the nickle earrings cause I love all that you do with coins. I think this jewelry is so cool and I love the effect you get with working with the coins. Good luck this weekend!!!

Sue,Your designs are all great! I especially like the ones you made with nickels - very clever.
