I have 3 only children

Psalm 147:3
He heals the broken hearted and binds their wounds...

... So we packed up our daughter, Madison and dropped her off at college this past Monday. Even as I try to write this I can hardly keep myself from falling apart. My husband drove the truck with our youngest daughter, Paige.
Madi and I followed behind in her car.
We chatted and had some laughs, when we arrived in the parking lot by my daughter's dorm we were laughing about something silly and I said "I have to be silly, otherwise I'd be crying"
It got kind of quite.
We spent the day together, went to dinner then sat in on a opening message which was incredible. We walked Madi to a 'meet and greet' said our goodbyes and we all broke down.
We cried all the way home.
So much of the jewelry I create comes from something I'm going through, have gone through or a lesson I've learned. It's how I express myself, like many people do through their art.

I've noticed a lot of the women who've commented on my blog are into stamping, making cards and scrap booking. All of it is SO beautiful, I've been checking you guys out and I admire the beauty, work and expression you put into your art. I'm in awe of the things you women create!
Thanks for the encouragement you've given to me.

I {heart} hearts!

I make these glass bead hearts using Italian and German glass rods and my torch. I melt fine sterling silver into each bead while the glass is molten.
Each heart is unique and individually formed by hand.

These heart beads are available on a custom made leather cord 16-18" in length, with a sterling silver hook and chain closure, with a cute little dingle bead on the end!!

Bead hearts on leather cord are available for $25.00 each, plus shipping.
