Happy January!

Hey everyone...hope you're having a great 2010 so far! Hope the holidays were great for everyone also!
The holidays were just awesome for me because I was BUSY, BUSY! Busier than I ever dreamed of being with jewelry orders! It got to the point of craziness and I have needed some time to recoup and catch up on all the other things that needed to be done around REST! lol!
I have to admit I was a little burned out once the holidays were over, but now I'm back to creating and looking forward to Spring. I've been working on some new designs and it seems that my jewelry is taking on a more bohemian/gypsyish look. It isn't what I intended...I was just creating what has been in my head. Seems like my true style shows through better when I am creating because I WANT to, not because I have orders to send out or because I need a certain number of pieces for a show. It's just more fun this way and it's what I enjoy.
I'm going to have to take some pics to show you what I'm talking about, but it has a very vintage feel...lots of aged brass, copper, old keys, vintage lace and linens, etc.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week! It's good to be back in blog-world!
