LunchBots Duo Stainless Steel Snack Container

Tired of those plastic lunch/storage containers? These LunchBots containers look like the perfect alternative!!!

Eco-friendly LunchBots are lunch and snack containers made from the highest quality 18/8 food-grade stainless steel. Even the lids are stainless steel, so there is no plastic anywhere in their makeup. Can't wait to try these containers for both myself and the kiddos!

Punky Purple Pendants!

A friend contacted me looking for something special for her niece. After a few questions about her favorite color, if she's a "girlie girl", etc, I came up with a new design that I have fallen in love with!

Here's the finished pendant for "Jade".





I also decided to create some initial pendants using the same design & LOVE them too!

Hope the glitter, purple and bling wind up being well received. I certainly like them & think I'll make myself a "J" pendant to wear when I'm feeling in a purple mood!

Autism Awareness

April is Autism Awareness Month and I am donating the proceeds of my autism pendants to Lake Myrtle Elementary's autism unit.

I spoke with a mom of one of LMES' autism students the other day & she raved about what a difference LMES has made in the life of her daughter! The teachers at LMES are wonderful & after hearing from a parent whose child is receiving autism services there, decided that I would donate proceeds from these pendants to LMES.

Here's a photo of some of them.....


The pendant itself is $7 & if you need a necklace, it's $3 more. Help me support a wonderful school that is doing it's best to help their autistic students! Email me at oursweetwhimsy@verizon.net for more info!

Sterling Silver!

Have been a huge fan of sterling silver for some time & am slowly incorporating it into my work.  Am getting ready to jump a massive hurdle & begin some silver soldering so I can create pendants using easy to find sterling silver pendant bezels.  

Just ordered a couple of books & as soon as they arrive, I'll post my thoughts on the books.


Working with the sterling silver trays I already have, here are a few of my creations so far....

We'll see how my work changes as I learn more techniques using sterling silver.  Stay tuned to see what's in store!

A new line of customizable wedding pendants is now an option for bridal parties and/or wedding guests!  The following photo is just a glimpse at some of the options that can be chosen.  Background colors can be customized as well as any wording on the pendants, and is included in the price!  All pendants are $10 each (which includes the necklace) and are created either under glass or on Scrabble game pieces. 
Since these pendants are all custom orders, you will need to contact me, Jan,  at oursweetwhimsy@verizon.net to place your order.  The pendants you will receive are handmade by me in my home studio and take up to a week to be completed and shipped.
