give this a Glanz

When a customer purchases a piece of my jewelry, it comes to them in a beautiful handmade box, made by Portland paper artist, Debra Glanz. I get so much great feedback about the "beautiful packaging" that I sometimes think people are buying my jewelry just to get the box!

Well, I may be putting myself out of business, but you can get just the box in Debra's etsy shop which is full of all kinds of unique boxes, just ready for something special.

bit boxes

medium boxes

tall boxes

book boxes

ring boxes

boxes with spiders...

wild and wacky boxes

and as long as we're talking gift giving, check out Debra's supply shop, Reminiscence Papers and pick up some great gift wrap, also designed by Debra.

Have fun with your gift giving this Holiday season!

(And for those in the Portland area, Debra is having her yearly studio sale this weekend along with several other artists! Check her blog for details...

dreaming in turquoise

I just had to share a recent turquoise purchase... All from Nevada, and mostly boulder turquoise, one of my favorite materials to work with. So keep an eye out for new work to be arriving in my etsy shop as well as my local galleries!

I can't wait to get my hands into this stuff! 

A few completed pieces from the past couple of years...
