Good evening to all of you in blog land. First of all my bestest friend's daughter just had her first baby! My friend Janney is a grandmother. omg we must be getting old or something. She is my first friend to have a grand child-heck some of our friends still have kids in elementary school. As for me, my oldest will perhaps be engaged one of these days. I hope that all of my kids have at least moved out before we become grandparents for God's sake. If they don't I swear I am moving!
I just want to touch briefly, while we are here, on a nonjewelry related subject. I hope you can hack it. So, last week while I was sick I saw a show on the discovery health channel that I couldn't believe! I wanted to text my friend Katie and tell her it was on but we are work friends and I was sick so I was hesitant. The show was about sexual rare disease and the most amazing one was called P-GAD. I forget what the P stands for but the GAD stands for genital arousal disorder. Apparently it is very annoying and the people who have it don't like it at all. Well, I don't wish to dwell on the subject but I'll just close by saying that it is somehow related to restless leg syndrome-that sounds like a cruel joke but it isn't. Check it out on wickepedia.
Thank God I got that off my chest. Here is the latest jewelry news: I just brought in lots of bags from my supply area, looked up my past gemstone purchases and labeled them! So now I will be able to describe those gemstones accurately. I hope it helps me write better descriptions. I also am going to look for a harder silver wire and maybe experiment with some wrapping techniques. I have a bracelet made of hard sterling wire that was supposedly knit by a jeweler in New Hampshire. I have been unable to get contact info on this artist but I would love to watch her work. Does anyone know if it is possible to actually knit sterling wire? Perhaps a question for the etsy forums!
