My Lucky Day has arrived

This is the day I have been waiting for all week:0) My christmas gift to myself has arrived so without further adoo - on to my life in the snowy White Mountains of Arizona - I just returned from my mailbox (I could hear a little screaming voice outside and went to investigate). I opened the door and yippers, wowzie, OMGosh, guess what jumped into my waiting arms??? Well, I excitedly took this little brown square box into my studio to be opened in private because I didn't want dh to wonder what I was up to now. I carefully pulled out my box cutter, ever so precisely cutting the packing tape away from the top to reveal a beautiful card and a spot of luscious, mouth watering Ginseng Green Tea bag, just waiting to be sipped. I very quietly pulled away the packing papers and crikey----there was the most beautiful object I have ever seen, my very own inbetween ring from my dearest Jillian. The turquoise and copper are so stunning along side the very darling baubles and other stones. I purchased this last Friday, Jill mailed it on Monday and here it is on my finger Wednesday. Wow, the postal service must have known my anxiety and hand carried it all the way from Pokey to me......Jill, you are the best and I am so lucky to be able to call you my friend.....I am speaking of course, for those of you who don't know her, Jillian of thenoisyplume@etsy.com. She creates some of the most beautiful jewelry I have ever seen, check her out. Also, check out my friend Carolyn of autumnleavesjewelry@etsy.com. She also is a very talented silversmither. They are my mentors while I am busy learning the trade and I hope someday to be as proficient as they are....I will, it will just take time. Hugs to all and thank you for reading my blog. I am off to fix a cuppa tea compliments of Jillian. Sally


  1. It is indeed a gorgeous piece of art - nice grab Sally!

  2. You got the ring!!! Wow, it's just stunning in its beauty Sal!!! I love the color combo, and as always her work is outstanding! When you come back this way to visit family let's do a studio day! (and get pics of our pretty Plume rings together!!!)

  3. Thanks Jaime and Care - two of my most favorite people. I felt really lucky to grab this one, or any one for that matter. We all know how difficult it is to "inherit" on of Jill's works of art:) Care, I am sorry to say we will not be back that way any time soon. Kids in DC are going to Atlanta for Thanksgiving while we are in NYC visiting the new baby boy. They will be transfering in the summer BUT-maybe next time I am back in NYC I can take the train and come visit-would love that!! Thanks to both of you for reading my blog..Hugs, Sal

  4. What a great ring...wowzers!!! Enjoy it...I know I would!
