Stepping Out Of The Box…..


I’ve never been in a bead swap or round robin so I’m very excited to be a part of the Bead  Soup  Blog  Party this summer. My partner is Cheryl Foiles, owner of . We send each other a focal bead or metal piece…, clasp and any other trinkets we think they may like and use. I can’t wait!! On August 25th  we post pictures of what we’ve made on our blogs and then blog hop to check out as many as we can! Stay tuned for more information as we go along.

My updated studio/garage is coming along. Tuesday the exhaust fan and ac/heating wall unit are both being installed. My husband has extended my counter and purchased another big cabinet for lots of storage space. Needless to say, I’m super excited and can’t wait to get it all organized and set up. The best part is that he thinks what I do deserves an awesome and comfortable studio space.  Love, love, love him!! I’ll be posting pictures soon.


About turtlemoondesigns

Sky watcher, dreamer, seeker, stone hoarder.... Finding a love and growing passion for metalsmithing happened as a later in life discovery. I taught preschool for 23 years, but started doing metal work as a hobby about 13 years ago. All I can say is that I get lost and found in it. Three years ago I "retired" from teaching, I'm way too young for that! Now I follow my muse, and feel more filled up in my heart and soul than I could have ever imagined, but I do miss those sweet little faces too!! What a truly amazing thing this has become, my life! Please feel free to contact me with questions or for custom work.

  1. Hi Dawn,

    So you are getting to take over Bill’s garage for your studio?! Less $$ than adding on to the house…at least for the time being.
