Moving, Moving, Moving

My apologies if I haven't been by as of late, I'm frantically packing and trying to get moved.  It's a little, no it's very unsettling to be moving away again!  Last time I left Albuquerque or the area was in 1982, so it feels very strange to be picking up and moving at this stage of the game.   But, I am hoping it is a very good thing - Hopefully I will be around off and on for the next few weeks even tho my shops will still be in "vacation mode" .  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Although Teresa's first crafting love was sewing, she has become obsessed with making jewelry and enjoys the whole process, from choosing the materials and designing one of her very pretty pieces of jewelry.   Looking to expand her skills by learning new techniques, Teresa enjoys designing and creating quality handmade jewelry for the budget conscious woman in styles from classic to contemporary.  She currently lives in Hillsborough NC with her husband and 2 rescue dogs, while her 2 grown children live elsewhere.

You can find Teresa's wonderful jewelry creations at these places
T.Rusk4U Etsy
T.Rusk4U HAFshop
and her blog

Gray Scales Pendant Necklace is a sweet and unique pendant. 

I just had to include this Santa Fe Surprise Necklace.  I'd have those cool curly wire pieces all over the place, but these are so nicely done.

Whimsical Wire Wrapped Moss Green Stone, and who said fun can't be pretty too!

So, I gotta say it again - I love checking out at all the unique handmade jewelry on these venues, created by such nice and talented people - and you can go shopping in your pj's - or nothing at all in this heat! lo
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Well, not just any rocks, but pretty rocks, the kind you put into a necklace or earrings, along with a few beads. LTD Beads and Jewelry came to life as she kept returning to two things she loves, rocks and jewelry.
