Even though I'm a jewelry maker, I find that I tend to wear my favorite jewelry pieces all the time.

One of these pieces of jewelry is a pair of earrings that I didn't even create. These silver raven shaped earrings are simple, silver, high quality craftsmanship and go with everything. And they're ravens. So duh.

Does anyone else have a piece of jewelry they wear all the time? Please feel free to post photos

Long Time, No Blog

When life gets crazy, certain hings tend to fall along the wayside. Unfortunately, one of the first things to fall off my planet is blogging.

This past year has has been full of changes, especially for me as a jewelry artist. I've had a lot of success's, especially over this summer, and it's given me the confidence I've needed to try to make RavenWorks my full-time endeavor.

There's been a lot of learning, and there's a lot of learning to go. I've learned how to better perfect my art, how to present my work, how to sell, etc. Now I have to learn how to promote, grow my customer base, and a million other things, such as doing taxes for my business this year for the first time.

I'm hoping that I can use this blog as a platform to share some of my experiences and hopefully help other people along the road to doing their art full time. I also hope to be able to get feedback from people as well. Oh, and laughing at myself now and again is always good.

So bear with me as I get this rusty blog train on track once again. I promise it will be worth it.

New Creations

Once again, my passion for stones and crystals has emerged. As I learn more about their metaphysical properties, I'm also new colors and combinations of stones, and of course, new wire designs.

I'm also pushing myself to keep my Etsy shop updated, and participate in chat, and other promotional avenues. My jewelry deserves to be seen, and hopefully, loved. Be sure to check out all of the great new stuff......

Gettin' Crafty With It

As I continue to be out of work, I continue to push myself with my jewelry creation. I've also committed myself to several craft shows for this coming season, something I didn't allow myself to do last year. I'm excited, and hoping this push to be committed to my jewelry making will bring around some good things.

I'll be posting pictures of new creations. Wish me luck!

Working, Working, Working

Well, haven't posted in some time, but now that I'm out of work, I should have more time on my hands.

I've been working hard on listing new items in my Etsy shop, and I think it's looking good. I've also joined Twitter (ravenworkstudio) and I hope to make some new connections there. I may even set up an Artfire and 1000 Markets account now that I have the time.

So, I'm on the crafty move. I hope I can get some things happening soon :)

Great Finds!

The gem show was amazing. I was so overwhelmed with all of the incredible stones, crystals and gems it was ridiculous. I made some great buys. My only regret was that I didn't have more money to spend. Luckily though, I discovered some new gems to love.

So, time to get my jewelry making behind into gear for the craft fair season. Good times.

Rock And Gem Show

This Saturday I'm going to my very first rock and gem show, and I'm so excited, it's ridiculous. I'm already dreaming of all of the great finds I'll pick up there, and pre-cringing at the money I'm sure to spend.
I really hope to find some really brightly colored crystals. I've seen some pieces lately using different shades of tourmoline and quarzt that make me ache with jealousy:

Aren't those stones just stunning? I hope to capture a few similar beauties this weekend. Wish me luck!
