Has it happened to you? Ever? You see a piece of jewelry and it makes you stop and stare. You find yourself drawn to it, like an invite to come hang out together. You might walk away convincing yourself that you do not need yet another piece of jewelry...or you walk right up to the counter with so much Love in your heart and buy that piece of jewelry. If you've walked away, did you find yourself thinking about that piece of jewelry that made you stop and stare? Do you find yourself thinking of ways to pop back over and see if that piece of jewelry is still there? Did you go back and buy it and feel complete joy?
I have. The one I am thinking of right now is a Amethyst cluster ring that I could not even stop thinking about. I was about 27 yrs old. I saw it in a cool crystal shop that joined a yummy sandwich shop. Oh yeah, I found reasons to grab lunch there that week after I saw that ring. You're probably wondering why I didn't go in and buy it? Was it because I was in my 20's and not a lot of funds? Was it not great quality work? Nope. None of that. The ring was a bit too big. Yet, I still thought of it like a cute guy I saw and really liked...crazy right? Hahaha.
I finally went in an bought the ring I Fell In Love with so completely! Then I went to my local jewelry repair shop and asked them to size it down. (This was all before I became a metalsmith and now know the task I had asked them to do with a that cluster ring!) They were great and made it fit perfectly and I wore it with love everyday for soo many years! I have since fallen in love with other pieces and they end up being added to my most favorite jewelry loves of all. I treasure them all!
That's how I hope most or all of my pieces find their homes. I want them to "fall in love" and be fallen in love with! To be so loved and worn with such joy.
I have seen this happen when I've been at craft shows or trunk shows. People with no intention to buy, fall in love with a piece I've made. You might think that's the right time to swoop in and make a sale right? Nope. Not me. I step back and watch what happens when the customer looks at the piece I made and their expression on their face, their body language and their energy. When they fall in love with my jewelry, I see all these wonderful things happen. It's beautiful and I don't want to interfere with that. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be.
Then they will come to me and I know they've experienced what I did with the Amethyst ring.
Another form of True Love.

So far it's been slow getting back into the rhythm after packing up the holidays for the year. But good things are already happening and coming up in my studio.
Since it's winter time, my current studio space is now freezing!! So I've moved inside to a litte office room by a window, to work for the cold season. This will be my second year upstairs, inside, being warm. The cool thing about this year is that I was just gifted an old jewelers bench. It had been in a barn for years and need a new home. This week I finally got to really work on it and bond with this old bench. What energy it has!
See how wonderfully charming it is? There's so much character in this bench. It really makes a difference to be warm and happy creating!!
I've also just started back to another jewelry class. This time I'm taking Stonesetting 2! Yesterday was the first class and I'm really looking forward to learning new stuff!
As we really get in to the holiday time now, I'm sure most houses are decorated in what finery that each of us desires to make our world happy and bright. I personally, am late to the game but have full intention of having the house look like a holiday is happening here! The tree is coming today! Yeah!
With all that said, it is now too late for me to guarantee delivery for Christmas day.
However, my 10% off Sale is still going on to take advantage of until December 24th.
I have just added two new beautiful handcrafted earrings to My Store today.

Both of these pieces are all handmade by my hands. All of the metal work I have created. The only thing I did not make is the metal itself and the stones. Those were made by Mother Nature. :)

Today I switched the platform I use to sell my jewelry from. I am now selling all of my jewelry directly from my website here. You can go straight to my Store by clicking on this pretty blue word, or find the Store tab in the navigation bar above. I use PayPal to process payments, which is nice because you do not have to make an account to pay through PayPal. You can choose to pay as Guest.
I have used Etsy for just about 5 years now. It has been a wonderful way to learn how to sell online and keep and manage a shop. I thank Etsy very much and now I am ready to go out on my own.
So for the future you can find me right here at http://www.mothersonthemountainjewelry.com/ making my jewelry and trying to be better at posting on the blog! Or you can find what's going on in my studio on my Instagram account ~ https://www.instagram.com/mothersonthemountainjewelry/.
You can now find all of my jewelry for sale here ~ (right here on the same website as this blog)
If you'd like to see a gallery of all the work I've been doing you can see that on my main website ~(right here on the same website as this blog)
If you're really curious and wish to see old stuff I've made, here is the link to my very first website I started 5 years ago ~ (before I became specific and added the work "jewelry" to my shop name)
