learning something new.

June 12th | older posts

I’ve been learning how to knot silk cord…and having so much fun! I love a new project idea. It feels so good to use my fingers in a new and different way.This one has sage pearls on brown knotted silk with a heart and key. Sweet and delicate.

Cream pearls between knotted brown silk thread with a sterling flower. Love.

I made this one mine. Bronze pearls between knotted pink cord with a hammered heart inside a circle. It makes me happy.

Here i am, happy with my new necklace :)

I am putting together a few designs that will be available on the website in the next couple weeks. If one of the pieces calls to you, let me know!

    I am a big fan of your designs—have purchased three things so far—and that last necklace (the one you’re wearing) is stunning. I love it. If you post it on the site, I’ll snatch it up!

    I just found your site through Karen at verbatim and i love your jewlery – I am hoping that my husband gets the hint for an anniversary gift(I sent him your website and told him exactly what I wanted!). I love the new designs also!

    Hi Lisa,
    I ordered a necklace from you during the CF fundraiser and I just love it.
    I can’t wait till your new creations hit the shop. I love the one with the sterling flower. Any idea what they will sell for?

    Those are gorgeous! I already drool in the bead section of Hobby Lobby, and you are making it so much worse! Perhaps someday I will learn a tiny bit about jewelry making. How did you start?

    the cream pearl with flower calls to me in a big way, but my wallet screams, “No! No!”

    Hi Lisa,
    I just recieved a necklace I ordered a little while ago (great shipping to Canada by the way, speedy). I just wanted to tell you how beautiful it is, I absolutely love it. I am not one to wear many pieces of jewelry, but this is one I will rarely take off. I can’t wait to show it off…I am sure you’ll be getting alot of Canadians beating down your door. Beautiful work. Thank you!!

  14. Michelle S. says:

    Wow I love all of them … the one that I can totally see myself in is the cream pearls between knotted brown silk thread with a sterling flower. Do you know how much you will sell this for? Can I pre-order one that is a bit shorter than what your regular necklaces are? I can send you the length….

    We used to live in Los Osos. My husband was the worship pastor at a church there. When I read your blog every day and see your beautiful pictures with our favorite places in the whole world in the background…my heart just skips a beat – sweet, sweet memories. Thanks for sharing with us every day.

    They are all so pretty! I love the last one with the bronze pearls and pink cord – I think it would be pretty with the flower inside the circle also. I would love to purchase one!

  22. baileygp says:

    These new pieces are just as fantastic as your other work. You make such beautiful things.

    I love the first one (with the dangling heart and key). To me it is the perfect compliment to the knotted silk and pearls. I’d also love to see it in other colors.
