My Website Is Up!

It has taken a long time, but it is finally up and running. There is still quite a list of things I need to do, but chances are once I take something off the top of the list something else will be added to the bottom. I think a website is an entity all it's own that requires constant attention! If you have any ideas or suggestions for my site just drop me an email.
Also, this site is running on a new framework that my DH built; in the future (we're beta testing now) we will be offering sites with hosting. If you might be interested in something like that shoot me an email

Thank you Bead Faery for the name suggestion!
In between planning my wedding, working on my website, having company, and the rest of life’s interruptions I managed to get this necklace made. It's quite different from anything I've done before, but I like how it turned out.
I cut and polished the stone, (agate I think) made the weird wire links and details on the bezel, then set the stone and made the chain! I used 14, 16 and 18 gauge sterling silver wire on this piece.
