I am participating in the Make-A-Wish® (MAW) Foundation Trailblaze Challenge this Spring. On Saturday, June 2nd, I will hike 26.5 miles of the Sauratown Trail in Winston-Salem, NC along with my teammate, and many others. The fundraising goal for each Trailblazer is $2,500. Will you help me reach my goal and help MAW grant more wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions?

Besides creating new jewelry and filling orders in my studio, managing my fundraising campaign and weekly training hikes have become part of my daily routine since early March. Just a quick recap: as of today (April 9th), I’ve hiked over 50 miles for my training hikes and our team has raised over $1,300! Will you help me reach my $2,500 personal goal? Remember, your donation is 100% tax deductible! (OK, I promise I’ll talk about something else in the next paragraph of this blog post : P )

#2. In the studio:
This week I just finished this pair of custom floral inspired dangle post earrings to match a custom ring that I made a year ago for my client. Made in sterling silver, 14k white gold posts, and set with Chalcedony and blue topaz. I’m just so in love with this color combination: soft translucent green from Chalcedony and the light icy blue from blue topaz, it’s perfect to wear for any occasion in Spring and Summer! Enough said, my client said she “LOVES IT” when I sent her these pictures!
Alright, I need to get back to work on new designs for coming up American Craft Council show in St. Paul, if you are in the area or if you have friends and family live in the area, please do come visit me! This is my first time exhibiting at St. Paul, will be nice to see some familiar faces there : )
Till next time,
