Another GIANT round of additions to the store today, and I am wiped out!

I even listed some metal rings today because they were too cute to pass up. If only I weren't allergic, I would spend all my money on fabulous pieces like this organic beauty by Saundra Messinger. Ooh. On second thought, maybe my allergy is a blessing!

Folks, I added so many new rings to the store and to my collection today, I can't even list them all. Just peruse at your own leisure :)

One customer hit the nail on the head when she compared herself to Gollum from Lord of the Rings, scuttling about and purring "my preciousssss" while admiring her rings. That is so me. I can't believe it never occured to me before. Hee.

My brother is home (temporarily) from Japan and he brought me this fab glass ring! It looks like Murano glass but is actually French. He took some photos of some other interesting rings from the store and with any luck I will get a couple more when he goes back there!

I looooove this necklace!

I just rearranged my collection section to better group the rings into categories. This might mean some links in previous news entries are now broken. Oops, sorry.

I just returned from a weekend "stagette" up in sunny Whistler. One of the girls thought we should all wear something in common, but didn't want to go with the usual (leis, t-shirts, etc.). So, she went out and bought each of us — you guessed it — a ring! I, of course, loved it. You can see a picture here.

At long last, the new Murano glass rings have arrived! I've listed them on two different pages: solid rings here and speckled rings here.

I've also added a slew of new rings to my personal collection. Too many to list individually here — you'll have to go see for yourselves!

Finally, how cute are these rings made from toothbrushes? If only the band were also made of toothbrush...

A bunch of new additions to the store today, folks! Candy rings, happy rings and striped bands. I also got my camera back and was able to update my "collection" page with two new members.

Here I am in the August 2003 issue of ELLEgirl Magazine, p.52 (please note that the pricing on those rings is incorrect; they're $10 and $6, not $12 each):

This is the one part of my site where you'll see metal rings! In case you're wondering, there are no ads here — I just love searching for interesting work.

Links are never repeated so there's always something new.
