An Afternoon of talented ladies (where I try to not buy everything in sight)

I just need to say that I am in love with Trapper Jane.
She hosts the BEST studio sales that I have been lucky enough to be invited to 3 times now.
Last weekend's sale was no exception.  Along side myself and Trapper Jane, Floating Gold Iceberg and Morena were both there and it is SO HARD to not shop.

Good grief I covet these ladies' stuff.

Janamade Contest and GIVEAWAY!

I am developing a new series of silver jewellery and I don't know what to call it.

That is where you come in.
I am opening up the first Janamade Contest and giveaway and here is the deal...

On June 1st, I will choose a winner from the suggestions that YOU give me on the Janamade Jewellery & Design Facebook page. 

Head on over there and "like" Janamade, send your friends to "like" the Janamade page and they can be eligible to win too.

And here is what you will win.

A pendant from the new series. Similar to the pendants above.

My inspiration for these new designs are the lava fields of Iceland (my much loved Amma was Icelandic and I identify a lot with this part of my heritage) and part of what I really like about them is their angular shape and how that is balanced by the soft and haphazard texture of the silver and the hand engraving.
I have a link bracelet and a bangle in mind already and I will also be trying to incorporate gold in a new way as well.   Something to think about!

So send me your ideas and suggestions and I will post the winner on June First with a picture of the pendant that you have won!

I am looking forward to hearing what you come up with!

jackalopes, owls and foxes

are on my mind these days.
I am making new things and I am manifesting a new future.

Oooooh hooo!

I am such a tease.

Just you wait lovelies, there are some fun new things brewing up over here at Janamade HQ.

Fun. Things.

(here's a little picture of some summery leather earrings for you to peek at until I get some shots taken of The New Stuff)

Working and Motherhood

This is not going to be a long post.
I went back to work a couple of weeks ago and it's become apparent to me that I have a lot to learn about balancing things out around here.

I am thinking of reading this book for some tips!

I'll let you know what I learn when I do.
