and a Giveaway!
Here's what Vicki says about the Giveaway Item: The inspiration for this pendant was creating a piece that represents God's creation of the heavens and the earth. This piece started with a round turquoise that looked like the planet Earth and then I set a 5mm London Blue Topaz for the Moon. Argentium is the metal I used on the hand made bezel. The bottom part has a copy of scripture from the Bible in Genesis. I added resin for all to float in like the heavens, oxidized the metal and gave it a brushed finish. 18" adjustable sterling silver oxidized chain is included. This is a one of a kind piece.

I live in Oklahoma City, married to the same man for 32 years, have a wonderful daughter that is married and just had my first grandchild 7 weeks ago. My specialty is designing and creating jewelry with Argentium silver, gold, gemstones and sometimes found items.
I had always made different kinds of jewelry but it wasn't till I found Etsy that I considered selling. From that point on I have worked very hard learning new techniques. I work as a administrator with another team Aspiring Metalsmiths and we now teach and learn new techniques together.
What does a typical day look like?
I start my day at 5:30am, exercise for 30 minutes, get ready for work (Professional TV) which my husband and I own, leave the house around 6:45am and start my day at work as a Service manager for a television repair shop. I am the person that takes care of most of the daily duties at our shop. I work till 5:00pm, my husband go home together. We eat dinner and then I get free time to work in my studio on my jewelry till whenever I can get away with.
Boy, this is a really hard question. I have been many places all over the world on many missions and one day would not be long enough for anything. Hmmm... well I guess I will have to pick Leadville, Colorado in a cabin waiting for the sunset.
