Why I bought a Hightower Botanicals necklace...

"- my son is a tattoo artist (just moved from Brooklyn) and my sister always wanted to have a mapleleaf tattooed on her but she seems to be afraid - she is turning 60 in Sept. and so I thought I would get her the necklace and now she won't have the need to go through the tattoo process!!! Just for your information. Thanks for your help - you have been wonderful. Sally"

Thank You Sally,
What a great story, I have a few tattoos and let me say that Yes. They hurt going on!

Patina experiments...

Two rosemary leaves with Jade, made for a friend of mine-

I am experimenting with blackening silver, lots of fun. Haven't hit the nail on the head yet, but soon, soon! Similar designs, soon to be in my store.

wild flowers

I was in Portland, Oregon recently visiting friends. Saw these while on a walk. Snapping flower photos never gets old-


In the last two weeks I've had two sales on Etsy.
My FIRST Etsy sales!!!
My Half Maple Necklace both times...its a hit!

A quote from my first Etsy sale-
"My necklace has arrived - its gorgeous. I love it and put it on right away. Thank you!"

Thanks Jennifer and Sara
