Ringing in a Milestone... Of Sorts...

Had to go for the pun in the title 'cause I have more rings to show you-all!
Many of them are already in their Creation Location at Santa Lucia in Princeton, MN, USA, so feel free to go and meet and adopt them there!

And now for the milestone: I suppose this must happen to everyone who creates hand-made beauties and that it was only a matter of time until it happened to me... however..this is my first time. When restocking one of my Creation Locations, I found that half of the Creations no longer on the display were not paid for. They just 'walked out'. Stolen.
This was very disheartening. Literally. I create with my heart and soul as do many of you and to have the creations stolen is just wrong on so many levels. If y'all really NEEDED jewelry, you *could* just *ask* me to work something out....

This is literally taking food from my table as this is my livelihood...so, the next time any of you sees or hears of anyone joking about doing this or having done it... remember me and other artists like me and say something.

And now to the goodies!


  1. Um . . . if you have stuff on consignment in a shop, and they get stolen, the shop owes you just as if they sold.

  2. Jane,
    I'm sorry my response is so late on this.. I'm still getting used to some of the functionality here!

    Thank you for your insight. It is, unfortunately, pretty standard for most of the consignment shops I deal with to have a clause in their contract to disclaim the responsibility to pay anything stolen. I figured this was "industry standard". If this is not your experience, I would love to hear about it!
    Thank you!
