With that in mind I am anxious to get to the studio today and work on the new line that we are SO excited about!! Will tell more later but it will be filled with lots of sparklies and fun things.
Yesterday was the Holiday Gift Show at the beautiful Community House in Birmingham, MI. Such a wonderful show, great vendors, beautiful booths, fabulous customers! Love it! I have such a wonderful location and in a room with a gal that sells the most beautiful sweaters ( course then I have jewelry to help them accessorize), a another sweet little lady has the most adorable handcrafted hats....words do not do her hats justice and another mom like me that has some of the BEST chocolate bark, peppermint bark, etc that I have ever tasted......can I tell you how happy I was to be next to her last year when I was pregnant with Little Assistant #2, LOL!!! Chocolate & a pregnant women, needless to say that I never even looked at the sweaters but had eyes only for the chocolate. Love her company name.....Moms gone Nuts! She has a flavor that is called"Daddy doesn't diet" as well as my favorite is the Extra Rich Peppermint Back that is called Forget The Scales!!!Too Fun!!! Check her out at http://www.momsgonenuts.com/
Course everyone here is getting ready for the "Big Game" tomorrow at noon, the University of Michigan vs. Ohio State game....to say my husband and friends are excited is a bit of an understatement.........LOL!! We are heading to Ann Arbor tomorrow to watch the game & tailgate with lots of wonderful friends, food, lots of fun and of course football!
Working on lots of new goodies that I am sure you will love......stay tuned I will post more this afternoon. Off to work on the Valentines Day & Easter designs for the new Southern Lady ad and chase down a crawling little assistant!

This one is called Animal Instinct........I LOVE this necklace......
hummmm....maybe I need to keep it, LOL! I say that about every other necklace!
Beautiful sunny day here in Frankenmuth! Leaves are falling, birds singing outside on the window. The cutest one was sitting there just watching me, looked like he was trying to figure out how to come inside and join us. For those of you who don't know much about Frankenmuth ( http://www.frankenmuth.com/) , we are a wonderful little German town tucked in Michigan. We have wonderful restaurants that have great chicken dinners and sides....people come from everywhere to eat at Bavarian Inn http://www.bavarianinn.com/( my father in law designed the Bavarian Inn so we are a bit biased to eating here, LOL) and its sister restaurant, Zehnders.
Venetian Santa Necklace
Also, the world's largest year round christmas store, Bronner's, www.bronners.com, is located here as well. Boy, you should see that place the day after Thanksgiving! So needless to say that the christmas decorations are up in force and we are all waiting for the candlewalk and tree lighting ceremonies next week! To call us " Christmas Town" is not an understatement at all........if you ever have the chance to visit...you should!
Monique Turquoise Necklace! Fabulous!!
Well! We have a few big things coming up......a new line, YIPPEEE as well as a BIG sale for all of our customers......can't wait to give you the details shortly.....

Ok, so I am finally back! At home & the studio!!! YIPPEEE! Only downside is it is snowing outside, UGH!!!! I am such the southern girl that the first sign of snow makes me a bit sad as I know it will be a while before I see all of my beautiful flowers again........but Christmas (my favorite holiday) is right around the corner so that means lots of decorating, parties, food, friends, fun and maybe this year will be our first Beach Haus Designs Open House......hummmmmm!
SO..............We have been travelling fools for the last month & a half going to Virginia, DC, Florida, Arkansas and Indiana. I can't begin to tell you what a great time we have had at all of our shows & with our wonderful customers. How great it is to be able to visit with our customers in person, hear their feedback and thoughts on new designs and pieces that they already own and just love, love, love. Warms my heart so much!!!!!
Our Florida show was out of this world! Great sales,fabulous customers and the gals that do the show are truly some of the best anywhere! Hats off to them and all of the charities that will get the benefit of their hard work........
I am sure all of you will agree with me there is nothing better than going home again..........one of our latest shows was in my homestate of Arkansas. To say that going home to visit friends & family is wonderful is such an understatement! The girls had such a good time with everyone and I had a fabulous show at Dazzle Daze in Conway. Only wish that we could have stayed longer but back to Michigan we had to go...............
So now back in the studio and BOY at we cooking up some extra special fabulous jewelry for you, the holidays, New Years, Valentines Day and yes...... Spring 2008!!!! (Have to get ready some great jewelry for all of our great wholesale accounts so that they have plenty of goodies for you to see in person all over the country)
I will post some new pictures later today and tomorrow for you to drool over ( only wish they always looked as great in the pictures as they do in person, LOL)
Have a wonderfully warm & sparkling day!

Friday was the golf tournament that was telling you about in the last post. Fabulous weather, could not have been a nicer day to be honest! Great turnout, they had 10 more golfers than last year, over a hundred golfers!!
We had contacted our Senator to get a Capitol tour and we just loved it! Did you know that if you stand on the star in the Crypt that it is supposed to bring you good luck? So of course, we had to do that!
Saw so much more than I can even write about but needless to say we had a great time! Looking forward to taking the girls to the National Zoo at some point to see the Panda's.........another day.
Have a sparkling day!

Cheers to U of M!!! GO BLUE!!!
An extra little bonus for me was that this was my first weekend alone since my youngest daughter was born 7 months ago. DH took the girls and headed UpNorth to Traverse City to take care of some things at the cottage so I got to catch up on some much needed sleep and work a lot in the studio!!!!!!! YIPPEEEE! Can't wait to show off some of the new designs to everyone!
This is our Julia Necklace full of Black Onyx, Swarovski crystals, jasper & cool sterling silver chain. Plus it is nice & long so it is great with a t-shirt or that great winter sweater that you have your eye on......This one is one of my new personal favorites!
Ok, so finally got the picture that I wanted for the new Southern Lady Magazine ad. Took me longer than I had hoped but I have had the worst computer problems and camera issues this past week, UGH!!!!
I am just in love with our Cool Snowman Cluster Necklace!!! Full of handblown glass, Swarovski crystals and of course the cutest Snowman!
The Pretty in Pink Snowflake necklace is so sweet. Rose Quartz, handblown glass beads, sterling silver & Swarovski crystals....what's not to love?
I think that our poinsettia necklace ( called our Holiday Pearls Necklace) is so classic and well perfect for any event that you might have during the holiday season, don't you think?
Well, that's it for now.......running to pack up the studio for our trip to Virginia & the DC area!
Have a Sparkling Day!

This is our fabulous Olive necklace!! You should see how it sparkles with al the fabulous Swarovski Crystals!! Beautiful!
So we are working on the new ad for Southern Lady Magazine......having a hard time getting the exact photo that we want but it wil be featuring some of our adorable santa's! We do great with our whimsical peices and this time of the year and we are doing lots of great fall & holiday peices on the website as well as some special peieces that will be exclusive to our wholesale accounts and some for the handful of shows that we will be doing during the holidays.
Here are some of the pieces if you want to take a quick peek.......they have handblown glass & handmade santa's. venetian beads, swarovksi crystals and off course sterling silver......they are far more adorable in person than even in the pictures......
Isn't our Joe Cool Snowman just the cutest thing ever! Needless to say we sell a TON of these to stores & customers in all the sunny places in the country. Can't begin to tell you how many we have shipped to Florida & California! We are going to do some new versions of him this year in pink & black, blues and then the one that you see above! Too cute!!
SHOW ALERT: We will be heading out of the studio next Thursday to head to Virginia for our annual show in Occoquan on Sept 29-30! We have been there for several years and just love going out there(course it helps that we get to see some wonderful family members as well while we are there). We are going to be on Mill Street in our new location right at Union. Please come by say hi & check out all of the wonderful designs that we are doing that will be exclusively at the show!
We are also looking for to the Beach Annual Pre-Party at my sister in law's that we do every year that a lot of our long time customers (now good friends) attend so that we can catch up with everyone before the show begins. Such a good time! Jan & Jenny are just fabulous hostess's with the most!
