Hello Amber!

Magnificient and enchanting creations of unique proportions!

Truly outstanding and marvellous pieces, crafted to perfection and everlasting value.

It goes without saying that the owners must be very proud and extremely happy to have them and show them off to their friends and relatives.

Kudos and compliments to the great master and creator of these wonderful, precious pieces!

Wish you more and success in all your endeavours!

I really love these pins you are making! The colors are beautiful and really stand out. I am sad because my favorites are all taken. But that is good for you and I'm hoping you make more. I have a weakness for pins... oh, and crystals... colorful shiny things too.

I also like seeing a picture of you. Very cute!

Thank you for your nice comment to me.

Golden Calf said...

Haha, thanks. She actually just had me post it on her blog, so I guess you got to see the premiere! Ohmygoodness, I've been obsessed with collecting brooches for school (the only form of jewelry I'm allowed to wear there!) and I'm in love with ALL of yours! Your shop will definately be the first place I look when I start back to school shopping!

Wowee! I'm completely in awe. :)

Jamie Noel said...

Amber,

These are so ... I'm at a loss for words. (call the press!) If i had to pic favs, which is very difficult it would be the one Jen owns with the checkerboard background, the cross roads one, and 'George'. George is because of my quirky nature. I could imagine people saying, who's George? What's that all about and me making up fantastical tales about the story behind George. (No of which would be based on one ounce of truth.)But as I said my number one fav is Jen's so she better watch her back...if she sees a crazed blonde woman hiding behind a barby of shrimp with a bottle of ether and a hankerchief she better be afraid. Very afraid.

Linda Lynch said...
