Guys, I am SO PROUD of this piece. It came to me yesterday after seeing all the pictures on Facebook and around the internet.
Polished 1/2" copper charm features the equal sign [=] suspended on copper chain. Lobster clasp, adjustable 15"-18" length. Show your support of equal rights for all people.
This copper necklace with an equal sign = is yours to purchase and 25% of the purchase price will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign, because I believe that love is love, people are people, and we are all worthy.
Please share, purchase, and love.

Being home with my vestibular disorder (see Icarus Falling) is opening up a set of needs and opportunities for me. To make the best of the situation, I’ve come back full force with Charmedseed Jewelry in all its splendor!
Of course I’m offering my Anne Boleyn replica necklaces, as well as continuing the wordspell line of stamped charm necklaces. Custom orders are of course always welcome!

So the husband and I have been building a house in Reunion, Colorado for a few months now. We should be ready about June for move-in, but we stopped by for the first time in two weeks this afternoon. Somewhere magically over the course of two weeks it went from just concrete footers to an actual house with walls and a roof.
It's beautiful, you guys. It's amazing, and more perfect than I could have imagined. And all it really is right now is exterior walls and studs, but it's still a shape you can walk into and climb up the stairs and see the bedrooms and the views and... it's really, really incredible.

I don’t know about you guys, but I hoard patterns like they’re going extinct. I even love to find vintage treasures once in a while. But I also love the PURGE, cleaning out patterns I don’t need to make room for new. I could recycle those old patterns in the bin with the rest, but here’s something much more creative and lovely!
Materials and instructions on how to make DIY Paper Flowers
Sewing Patterns, Ruler, Scissors, 24-gauge floral wire, Skewers (optional)
1. Stack 10 sheets of sewing patterns cut to 10″ square
2. Fold 1-inch wide sections of the stack, working into an accordion fold
3. and 4. Pinch, loop, and secure a 12-inch length of wire around the middle of the folded pieces. Round the edges using sharp scissors
5. Carefully unfold the layers of paper, fanning into a round bloom
6. A few gentle scrunches of the bloom will create the round “hydrangea” look that you want
7. If you will be arranging the flowers in a big bouquet using floral foam, wrap the remaining wire around a skewer. You can wrap up to three blooms around one skewers
Ta-da! And there you have it, a bouquet of stunning paper flowers!
