Japanese Influence - Ceeb Wassermann

I saw this pendant and was totally amazed by it - and when I clicked on the photo I realized "hey, she's one of my gals!" I was so taken by the three dimensional look and the amazing detail. Oh the time and patience and saw blades it must have taken to make this piece. Just gorgeous.

Make sure to check out her shop for other Japanese influenced pieces. This one just happens to be my favorite at the moment!

Rings in the upcoming book '500 Wedding Rings'

A couple of days ago I received my acceptance letter for '500 Wedding Rings' and I'm quite pleased- needless to say! It is published by Lark Books and will be released in spring of 2008. I haven't seen it yet but have seen (and bought) most of the other books in the 500 Series and they've been wonderful. So it is extra nice!

These asymmetric spiky earrings from DiscoMedusa are amazingly unique. My favorite part is the asymmetry - who needs two of the same for a pair of earrings?! These are simply fabulous. The ear hooks are 10g, but can be customized to either 12g or 14g. They are hand sculpted and fabricated by Caitlyn - (the creator behind DiscoMedusa Designs) and the metal is all sterling silver. Available in her shop - DiscoMedusa Designs.
