My TV Debut!

I made my tv debut recently on a local show here in Louisville called Great Day Live.
I was terrified! I am a very nervous public speaker - It is my biggest fear actually.
I am teaching a class at our new Artist Co-op called "Etsy Success" about tips and tricks to be a better Etsy seller.
They wanted to do a segment specifically on Selling on Etsy and the class so I was the go to. Its really great PR for the Co-op so I couldn't bring myself to say no.
My family teased me about being the next youtube sensation if I vomited on live tv, but I made it though and discovered it wasn't as hard as I thought. I just have to learn to not talk with my hands. I don't know if that is possible.
Here is the link to watch for yourself :

Ps - I'm the redhead.
Custom Wedding Set

A custom wedding set, made with a lab created emerald in a sterling silver "cake" ring.
Wedding band made with hammered sterling  center and 14kt yellow gold rolled edge. 
The cake rings are available in my etsy shop with a variety of different gemstones.

Custom Work

I've been keeping busy with custom work lately, which I love to do. Its an exercise in problem solving and stretches my creative imagination. 
The princess shaped rings were part of a birthstone series for a really fabulous customer. 
Lab created alexandrite and citrine were used. The alex was so dreamy in its color I didn't want to send it away when it was finished.

This juicy peridot was damaged near one of the edges and sentimental to the customer, so we decided on a bezel that would hide the damage
and protect the stone also.
The bright silver really shows off the brightness of this stone.
