...I could have called it "my cat has a dental problem and there are some major vet bills coming up", but that probably wouldn't fly.  During his recent checkup at the vet, I received the unhappy news that Jasper (the Basket Cat of Facebook fame) has feline tooth resorption, which means that his teeth are decaying from the inside out.  He's only 2 and already needs three extracted...and the prognosis for the rest isn't good.  And Jasper HATES going to the vet. Poor guy.  So that, along with ongoing home renovation bills, some planned travel, etc., etc. means that I must generate some income ASAP.  

Enjoy the sale!  I hope you'll find something you love!

:: Shop Policy Changes ::

Hi everyone--I wanted to let you know that I've decided--after thinking it over for several months--that I will no longer take reservations for items.  I'm sorry to have to inconvenience you, especially since I have so many established customers.  For those of you who are established, I'm willing to make exceptions depending on circumstance, so if you simply MUST have something and cannot make it work financially at the moment, please contact me and we'll talk.  If you have any questions about this, please let me know.  

On the brighter side, I am working on three new pieces today: a silver weathered juniper wood cuff is cooling in the firing pan, and a very large silver weathered juniper wood pendant is in the kiln right now.  And I created a necklace with a very special elestial quartz crystal as a pendant.  You can expect to see them appearing here and on Etsy by tomorrow!
