Thank you for asking, knee tunes. :D

I shut down my blog. I get emo sometimes when it comes to blogs. No need for it anymore.

I have an etsy store.

http://capriciousme.etsy.com

The stacking rings are really popular. My store has blown up with orders for those. It's good! I've been in a sales rut for a good 10 years, so it's refreshing to be back at it making some money to pay the bills, ya know? The prices of gold and silver though have really hurt a lot of jewelers, but I think I've found a good niche so I don't believe the economy is as bad as it used to be. It's evolving more-so.


I resell beads and I make beads in precious metals so I do have a website for that - haven't done much advertising for it as yet. The site is being tested and when I'm confident in the software I'll take out some ads.

A gift I gave. I used 26 gauge sheet to construct the case, the stone is cripple creek turquoise and the nail belongs to a family pet that passed away (Alaskan Malamute). Her ashes were scattered at the coordinates stamped into the copper plate.

The Honey Badger cracks open pistachios too. I found and entire category on etsy for honey badger apparel and accessories.

I'm going to make myself a keychain like this:

lol!


In other news, yesterday I got an order from Moscow. Who'd have thunk a cold war era kid would be doing commerce with a Russian in 2012.

I ordered some gold today. Whoo hoo deluxe apartment in the sky! Ordering gold feels like a vacation! :hooray:


New design.
As far as jeweler's go, I'm still a sprout compared to the veteran's in the industry. I'm lucky to work in an environment where I supply the local industry with tools and materials. I pick their veteran brains once in awhile.

I think I would do this ring differently next time.

I read through this thread and I'm glad you didn't let the usual asshole comments discourage you from posting your work. This stuff is very cool. :thumbsup:
