Thanks to everyone for all your support in my jewelry journey...


I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Now for the next holiday to come and go soon to bring a new year.  I hope that it will bring a good year for everyone out there struggling.  It sure has been one heck of a crazy ride this past yea rfor myself and many others.  I thank God everyday for giving me my creativity so that I could and can survive this very poor economy.  I tell people who seem to be stuck in the negativity of it all to realize that you can only go down so far before you have to start going back up again.  I feel blessed to have my health, a roof over my head, food on the table and a wonderful group of family and friends.

Jewelry making has brought me such joy and I so wished I could just give away my creations.  I absolutely love it when people smile and make such a fuss over the necklace, bracelet or earrings they just purchased.  They go on and on about how beautiful it is and how they get compliments when they wear the piece.  Many of my friends and family give me a hard time about accepting payment for my jewelry.  They say I need to make a living and the money to keep making more so I should just take it and that's that.  One day I will be in a much better place financially and I won't forget how supportive and understanding they all were through this tough time.

Thank you to all of you out there who give me a "like" or a nice comment on Facebook when I post another piece of jewelry.  It means more to me than you'll ever know.  It keeps me focused and moving forward.    Sometimes people can be pretty hard to deal with and just the smallest positive reaction gives me faith in humanity.

Here are a pair of earrings I just made yesterday.  I hope you like them:)

Thanks so much for all your support and faith in me.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing everyone a very wonderful Thanksgiving day!

I have so much to be thankful for.

This year was one of the hardest years of my life.  I am so thankful to have a beautiful place to live, a roof over my head, a bed to sleep in, good health and food on the table.

Thank you to all of my angels for helping me through this very difficult year:)

I am especially thankful to God for giving me my creativity to make jewelry.

God bless you all,

Making more jewelry....

Hello again,

I spent the day working on another necklace.  I put together a few layers of brass on top of the stone cross.  The necklace measures 35 inches long and the cross is 3 inches long and 2 inches wide.  I don't normally like doing symmetrical necklaces, but that's just how this came together.
I really hope you like it.  My sister saw it on my FB page and loved it so much, I decided to give it to her for Christmas....she is going to wear it to her Christmas party.  Now I need to make a pair of matching earrings.:)

My jewelry journey continues...

Hello Everyone,

I have been so busy trying to get my new website going  I am offering my original K Marie Designz in kits.  I will have pdf's with all the necessary information to put the kits together, including pictures, written step by step instructions and a list of all of the items in each kit.

I found out that putting my own line of brass together just wasn't working so I am staying focused on my kits.  I have been asked by so many people over the years to kit my designs and now I am.

I would love any and all feedback about the site.  I can only learn a long the way.

Thanks so much for your continuing support,

New things going on with brass....

Hello Everyone,

So summer has come and gone.  My life has been a whirlwind since moving to San Luis Obispo.  I have been busy teaching classes and perfecting my new brass.  It has definitely been a trial and error process and I am still working on getting it down to an exact science.

I recently launched my new website where you can find K Marie Designz original jewelry kits.   I am still learning all the in's and out's of uploading photos, shopping cart, etc.   I will have "how to" pdfs along with video tutorials.  It sure is a ton of work to get any business started.

I am going to try to keep up on my blog so everyone knows what's happening.

I wish you all the best,

New Line of Brass with Dark Chocolate Brown Patina

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited about making a new line of brass with a dark brown chocolate patina.

I am working with a couple of ladies that have the same views I do about brass for jewelry making and more.

I will keep you updated as we move forward.  I will also have pictures of the new line as we progress.

Take care,
