howard stern and robin quivers’ wishbone

small sterling silver wishbone on black rawhideHoward Stern’s wife Beth is a longtime friend of mine, one of my dearest in fact, and this christmas, Beth purchased a number of my wishbone pendants to give as gifts.

 

Howard jumped on this as well and gave Robin Quivers one of my favorite yellow gold wishbones (with a lovely diamond inset).

Robin Quivers wearing my wishbone necklace on the Howard Stern showwell little did I realize how this would change my business in such a big huge way!

the wishbone pendants have already been experiencing a massive resurgence in popularity as, thanks to the urging of many a new customer, I began making a smaller version of the cornish game hen wishbone pendant that I have been casting for years.

this smaller version has given way to wishbone earrings and now has joined the ranks of my “trinket” line of hand hammered pendants… peace signs, om symbols and my latest line of hand hammered zodiac symbols.

and now for the really something fabulous that is about to happen~

this tuesday morning, march 27th, NBC’s Today Show is going to feature my trinket line on Jill Martin’s segment Steal and Deals.  Jill has about 5 specialty items for sale at a discount of anywhere from 50-90% off retail price.  the deals are available for 24 hours only and my trinket line of zodiac symbols, peace signs, wishbones and om symbols will be sold for an insane discount off my retail price.

i personally make each of these trinkets (here in the usa, not in china!!!) and given the recent surge in silver pricing, this is going to be an amazing deal!!!  I am offering the pendants on one of three chain options (silver chain, natural rawhide chain or black rawhide) and they make fabulous gifts.

check it out at TODAY SHOW and from there you will see the STEALS and DEALS link to my site.

after all, howard and beth have fantastic taste :)

holiday gifts and gratitude

my senses have been most festively titillated this season!

first, thank you all for your orders and correspondences, and to all new comers from the howard stern show, welcome to my world of metals. I hoping some of you guys will get into some of the funkier ways i work, in brass, palladium etc…

huge thanks, of course, to my dear friend beth stern and her beautiful husband howard, who gave one of my diamond gold wishbone necklaces to robin quivers for a holiday gift on the air, and from that moment, I have met a number of wonderful new people!

I forged and shipped right up until the 23rd… a crazy elfen metalsmith, or so i fancied myself ;)

then came christmas eve and I just stopped working. just stopped, left my bench a mess, and headed to old lyme to be with family.
all has been glorious. and tomorrow I ship more wishbones!

and my favorite gift this year? cashmere arm warmers. so absolutely decadent, ever so practical, and supremely sexy, charcoal grey cashmere arm warmers. heaven. going to buy a union suit and live in me overalls, long underwear and arm warmers. it is 18 degrees farenheight tonight.

you absolutely must do yourself the favor of visiting minnow and checking out her fabulous handmade cashmere pieces for adults and babies, too.
