New Work AND New Tutorial!

I call this one Balancing Act.
Pulled in different directions at once and in the middle, the challenge of staying balanced.

The challenge of not letting one thing become an obsession, but of holding all things in perfect balance and each one receiving the attention it deserves.
And like the daily pull, it's either up and down...

Or left to right...
you choose.

I've actually chosen to list this one in my shop.
It's the first piece of jewelry I've listed in months.
There's no way it will reach you by Christmas (unless you live at my post which case...)
But, it's in my shop, waiting for the right person to wear it and own it.
You can find it here: Balancing Act.

Also, I finished the tutorial!
I decided to name my pendant La Rondella (Thank you, Louise!).
The word is actually Italian and means "The Washer", and no, I don't know if it means the kind you put clothes in, or the kind that you use to build thing, but either way, they are both round.

I created a peacock version as I did the tutorial, just to make sure everything worked.
I've listed it in my shop.
You can find it here:

Christmas is oh-so-close and I'm so excited! I hope you are too!
If you need any last minute gifts, I also have gift certificates listed in my shop. They'll arrive as PDF files that you can print out and package in a cute little envelope for gift giving.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


  1. Beautiful pieces Marcie, it's great to see some of your new work.

  2. So cool! I think those rings would look great all attached somehow in graduated sizes...

    Nice work!
    Enjoy the day.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Marcie! I love what you did with the chain on The Blancing Act too...really beautiful creations!
    Wishing you the best Christmas!

  4. Marcie, I love the Balancing Act it is so cool that it can be worn in different directions. The La Rondella pendant is very pretty.
    Merry Christmas,

  5. Wow! the Balancing Act piece is a show stopper! Have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas!
