Fun Fall Colors Are Here!

New Green & Clear AB Crystal Circle Pendant with Center Dangle

Hello Everyone,

Did you have a good week?  I have to admit that this has been a very difficult week for me.  Monday I had to go to Philadelphia (two hours south) to a doctor appointment which went well but getting there was quite a challenge.  Then Tuesday I was totally exhausted.  Wednesday well you don’t really want to know all this stuff so suffice it to say it has been a long week…

Matching Green & Clear AB Crystal Earrings

In spite of it all I was able to make these pretty necklaces and earrings.  Some are Crystal and some are Glass.  There are all different colors from green to red, yellow and orange to Aqua blue.  I am really enjoying these and plan to sell them at the upcoming bazaars (details to follow).

Aqua Glass Bicone & Teardrop Circle Pendant with Center Glass Dangle

I would love your reaction.  What do you think?  They measure about 1 and 1/4 inches across and the earrings are about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch, without the earring wire.

Two Tone Green Crystal Circular Pendant with Matching Earrings

I think these are a fun twist on an old favorite.  I can make them in birthstone colors for any birthday or school colors for a little fun this new school year.  What’s your favorite color?

A Friend of Mine…Margaret Almon 2

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you all had a good weekend.  I didn’t realize how tired I was until I stopped and then I got some much-needed sleep.  Thank the Lord for weekends when you can get some extra rest.

So, you remember a friend of mine…Margaret Almon, she and I are working on a project together called Mosaic Matches.  She makes all kinds of mosaics including pendants which are absolutely beautiful.  And I am going to be making matching earrings.  So now that I am opening my Etsy shop today  there are already a few Mosaic Matches there to choose from  and I am going to regularly post as many as I can.  If you are a lucky owner of one of her pendants and it doesn’t yet have a match contact me and I will be glad to design one just for you.

Please check out both our stores on Etsy:  Margaret’s Nutmeg Designs and My A Jewelry Masterpiece for You

Thanks for coming and I hope to talk with you soon.

Have a Great Week,

Introducing My New Mosaic Matches

Hello Everyone,

I want to introduce you to Mosaic Matches.  A friend of mine Margaret Almon makes Beautiful Mosaics.  We decided to work together and now I am making matching earrings to go with her creative necklaces.  Please go to  and look at all her amazing work.  Then if you find a necklace that you like and I don’t already have a matching pair made, I will make a matching pair for you.

Likewise if you already have a necklace or pair of earrings that you would like something matching to add to it, I would love to design something just for you.  Think about that favorite old necklace that you use to wear all the time but lost one of the earrings or those great earrings that you bought last year but the necklace that you thought they would match clashes instead of blending like you hoped.  I can help you with that.  Tell me what you are looking for and we will tie it all together with “Matches”.  In this economy you can’t just go out and buy a whole new anything on a whim, but together we make a beautiful Match.

Thanks for coming and have a GREAT Weekend!

After Hahnemann…


Monday was my day at Hahnemann University Hospital.  Last week I admitted that I dread going and taking all the tests etc.  Well I had nothing to dread this time, PTL!  I had to have my blood drawn and I had an echo cardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) which is sticky but doesn’t really hurt, (unless you get a tech that presses really hard like I did) and I saw my doctor, Dr Howard Eisen.

*A little side note here, if you have to go to a cardiologist and you live anywhere near Philadelphia there is no better doctor for your heart than Dr. Eisen.  He has cared for me through my transplant and 12 years later I am still being taken care of by him.  So, I trust him and you can too.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program…I was suppose to have a Lexiscan Stress test, which is the tougher test of the day, but it had to be rescheduled because it was never properly scheduled in the first place.  So my day was pretty easy as far as days at the hospital go.  Now I have that stress test next week but it is local so I don’t have to go to the city for it.  I am praising God for a good day!  I am still dreading that stress test though…but the good news is I can have the whole test in one day instead of 2 halves! Yay!

So, in my joy I created two new necklaces.  Take a Look!

I hope you all enjoy these pieces as much as I do.  Have a Great Weekend!

Tri-Tone Blue Glass

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a good week.  Do you suffer from allergies?  I do.  All those bushes and trees with the little white flowers are coming into bloom here in PA so for the next 3 weeks or so I will be buying out the local stores’ stock of Benadryl just to suffer through.  After they pass I’m usually ok.  So for all of you out there who understand the love hate relationship of spring, I raise a box of tissues and a bottle of Benadryl.  Here’s hoping we all make it through another allergy season.  And to maybe take your mind off the sniffing for a little while take a look at my Tri-Tone Blue Glass necklace and earrings.  Let me know what you think…and to all a decongested night’s sleep.  ~ Lori
