A new beginning

So despite my sniffles I ventured outside to take photos... and here we are.
Let me introduce "A new beginning" necklace.

Now I am crawling back in bed...

Sunday Sniffles and Little Flowers

Oh what a day... Been feeling terrible, coming down with a bad cold. *Sniffles*
But I did manage to work on some new things between blowing my nose..

I just finished this necklace and it's already dark outside... I'll have to wait until tomorrow to take photographs. I already have a story behind this necklace and I know where I want to take the photos. There is a little trail by the river just by our house. I'll head there tomorrow and then back to list it!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

And another baby was born... (not that kind of baby!)

Swedish Meadow Necklace

I've been wanting to do more.. To challenge myself more. I know I can do other things than bean sprouts! I just don't have enough time... Oh boy do I wish there was more hours in the day. But somehow, in between work and feeding kitties and dreaming about owning a house I decided to open Nova Of Sweden..
So make sure leave your heart as I will continue to pour my memories, dreams and hard work into that shop.

with love //tess

Wedding gifts..

My dear friend Nicole is getting married this weekend. And I am going to her wedding in Atlanta! So I decided to skip the usual gifts and made something for them that they can keep forever! I made a pair of cuff links for David and a necklace for Nicole. You can see the whole (well almost) process on my Flickr. I really hope they'll like their gifts!

A mountain of bubble mailers...

ahhh.. after a wonderful weekend of being featured in the Etsy "weekend deals" this is what my kitchen island looks like... Since David is away working in NY this week I was so lucky to have my furry friend Lisa to help out... I am exhausted. It's wonderful but exhausting...

Many kisses to all you wonderful people buying my jewelry. It makes me all teary eyed..

Tip toeing through the tulips Taa Daa!

Lisa smelled the flowers. She said they smelled good, but I don't think she was too impressed by the ring.. She just wanted me to scratch her.. It's a little rougher looking than what I wanted but hey you got to start somewhere! I managed to flush set 2 citrines (and stabb myself in the finger while doing it) and overall I am very happy to wear this baby on my finger.. Now I need to make some more goodies so you can have a chance to snag one :o)
