This has been a question causing debate for eons. Does pure evil exist in its truest form? Not just bad people or bad things happening, but i mean dogs fighting in the dessert , head spinning exorcist type things.

Well, I can with out a doubt  say YES. It exists and lives under my roof:


Its name is Santa- and today proved himself to be the devil himself.

After finishing a ring that i customized for a dear client, from a pendant to a ring- with the most stunning labradorite I have ever layed my eyes on- i put it on the counter after polishing it.  He looked at me- meowed loudly and swiped it off the counter- hockey style- so that the top splintered into shards. And yet he wasnt done- with a quick right paw, he drop kicked a pink tourmaline that i decided to splurge on for a particlar ring I had in mind- sending bits of pink shards into the macaroni and cheese.

Satisfied with his work he sauntered over to the carpet and went to sleep.

Pure evil exists!

a new toy!



Yes, i got a new toy! It is called a sinusoidial stake- I know, it sounds like some god awful medical instrument from the industrial revolution. What it does is bend metal in two different directions at one time.

Super cool and extremely fun to use. Granted the whole self teaching thing isnt my cup of tea in general, but I had no choice in this matter- because besides the fact that they dont sell this tool here in Israel, they also refuse to believe that it actually exists.

This is what I came up against when asking around for it. I was told I was making it up by several people- because that would certainly be a good uses for time: making up tools and then spending a whole day going from place to place asking if they sell my invention!

So I did a bit of on line research and decided to try it first in copper and brass- as silver has become way too pricey for experiments.

The result is amazing! Like pringles with gentle graceful curves?





I had no idea that brass and copper could look so good!!!

Funky necklace day


Today was necklace day- funky, fun,weird and really cool There are just some days when I get caught up in a subject, and today happened to be necklaces!

This oddity started out as something so ridiculously differently and morphed along the way into an alient like creature in a little skirt and lace. I gave her a whole night out and decided to call it “karioke night on Mars”


She consists of a teardrop shaped yellow opal and silver

This next one is a fun little poppy jasper with dandling flowers. They each moved independently!


The stone is called Guadaloupe Poppy Jasper

This next one is ocean jasper in an Asian like design


Next in line- rough tourmaline, silver and 18 karat gold!



Same concept here, except for raw aquamarine and all   silver.



This next one is with a gorgeous rough cut emerald



and this last one is just Lolly- refusing to put her tongue in for about half an hour! Cracked me up…


tomorrow I am devoting the day to learning  tech stuff- websites. photosharing groups etc. I feel like the whole world is connected but not me! it all overwhelms me too much!!
