A revamped website, new work, and cooler days...

Gosh, when the weather is hot and sticky, my motivation comes to a slow crawl. I managed to get a few custom orders finished and in the mail, but that was all I could muster in the past few weeks. Thankfully, the days are drier and motivation has returned from her sultry Caribbean vacation.

First on the list was the Quench website. Launched a year ago this week, I enlisted my dear friend to design the site. He endured endless phone calls from yours truly who badgered him and insisted on minute changes. What a horrid client! In the end and many glasses of white wine later, the website was finished and I was pleased. However, over the year I found it difficult to make changes to a site that I did not design (understanding the program he worked with was near impossible). With my new Macbook and 2 sessions at the Apple Store, I revamped, recreated, and relaunched my website!

Feeling rather geeky and techie, I designed and created a wholesale catalog for the Vintage Collection. I sent it to a customer today only to realize later that I forgot to price a row of earrings. My new mantra: proofread, proofread, proofread.

Above are some new items (new within the past 2 months). All vintage/antique buttons, sterling silver, and a smattering of 18k gold!


  1. I really love your work. I look forward to seeing more, and checking out your website!

  2. I've been following your blog for about 11 months and I"m always amazed at your jewelry. You just keep getting better and better. I promise to make a purchase in the future...for me, ha!

    Love the new look.
