the miriam necklace

My mom was an early supporter of my ventures with Sadie Designs. She may have been the first person who bought one of my pieces and has definitely sent her friends my way, too, to fulfill their jewelry needs. I'm naming this new necklace after my mom (her middle name is "Miriam") because she had a hand in its making.

You know what's kind of funny? No matter how many times I tell myself I have to take a jewelry break and just worry about school I still find myself making pieces for Sadie. Late at night when Jeff is already sleeping I dig out my supplies and see what I can come up with. I love the hands-on aspect of jewelry making: the rearranging, taking apart, putting back together aspect of it all. What do you like to make? Leave me a link if you have pictures or a shop to share. Happy Saturday!
