missing the sun

I live in southern california, and i expect really decent weather. We actually pay for it in real estate and all the other taxes that ca has. For the last week it has been raining. In southern california, and for me that does not work. I love warmth, and i get depressed if the sun does not shine. The only good thing is that i did some work on my etsy site.

I just posted a new ring today, i actually really like it. It will be perfect for an engagement ring. Not traditional at all, but more unique and creative. What do you think?
The gold is hammered and the stone is actually a diamond, a rose cut diamond. These diamonds are more opaque, natural and beautiful. My diamond has a greenish color. So cool!!

Etsy black friday and cyber monday sale!!!

Happy thanksgiving! this year has been amazing year, full of tribulations, trial and errors. But i got serious about my esty page. I worked really hard on it, spent a lot of time taking pictures and redoing listings...But then i joined team discovery on etsy which has been a blessing. This team is amazing. So thank you team discovery!

Then my only child noah started public school in pasadena. I was very nervous about it, but he has an amazing teacher, and some great kids. Thank you Ms Dickerson.

Thank you to my husband who has been really supportive and helpful with my son and etsy!.
Also a sad note, i lost a friend of mine to cancer last week. She was beautiful, amazing, vibrant, a renaissance woman and so young. Marjan, may you rest in peace.

On a different note,I am having a sale on my etsy site. Free worldwide shipping, and 10% off all necklaces. The necklace discount won't show up until thursday morning. But if you want a necklace before that just contact me!.

volunteering at my son's kindergarten class.

it has been a while since i wrote anything.  Well here i am.  My 5 year old son just started kindergarten at a public school in pasadena ca.  Today i went to volunteer for the day.  I was very happy to be with my son in the class and see how his day goes.  He is very proud of the fact that i am there helping the teacher and other kids that might need help.  It is very challenging right now in pasadena. With budget cuts and increased class sizes, the teachers have a lot of things to deal with.  Teachers are really special people, especially kindergarten teachers, who right now have no help, but parents who volunteer.
The kids are really cute, funny, and have lots of energy! my god!.  i am wiped out when i come home....
Congrats to ms dickerson, she is great!

Now back to jewelry, here is a new item i posted today

and since october's stone is opal, check out this amazing opal necklace:

enjoy and hope to hear from you.
