new little things

Guys.  I'm still recovering from Summer, even though the littles have been back in school for a week now!  I'm just not in that groove yet, and I'm sitting here wondering how I ever kept up with this blog and my shop at the same time.  It's been a challenge!  But a good one.  And I've expanded my shop recently to include a few pieces of jewelry.  I'm excited!  I've made a few on custom orders, but now I'm adding them to purchase straight from the shop.
I've also been thinking ahead to Christmas, and I have a few little ornaments and trinkets in the works!  I know it's early, but I was so slammed last year with the ornaments, I thought I had better work ahead.

So here's a request from you, friends.  If you could design your own ornament, what would you want on it?  Or what would you want on your necklace?


  1. I love your jewelry! It's so lovely and original. Geez...I don't know what I would put on it. Your ideas are better. :) I like books and cameras, so maybe a Jane Eyre-type head or a vintage camera on a necklace?

  2. Um, YES to ALL of these! You are truly so inspiring with your work! I am just so tickled about the new additions. Don't be surprised if you are just busy all the time now with orders. And I am so partial to that heart crystal bowl featured with the family tree necklace indeed! ;) Love your new touches to the shop and keep up the spectacular work! xo

  3. Just gorgeous! I adore the jewelry-- I'd love one with a California poppy as a nod to my roots! As far as the ornaments, you can't go wrong with snowflakes in my book! Love your work Ruthie, truly!

  4. These are all beautiful, I love the constellations! I am semi-brain dead this week, so definitely not bursting with creative ideas... but can't wait to see your's :)

  5. Oh my goodness, Ruthie, those are so pretty! I think the constellation one (Big Dipper?) is my favorite. You are so talented, my dear! And I too am feeling the strangeness of getting back into a routine. It takes a while to find your groove, right?


your comments are the peanut butter to my jelly!
