Metapolies™ Store Restructuring

I'm doing some restructuring of the Metapolies™ store on  Etsy in the next day or two, and I'll be refreshing the collections too!   

I'm planning to leave the store open while I make changes, so if you have questions or are looking for something and can't find it, please leave me a note on Etsy.   I'll be happy to help!

ballons lightI'll make an announcement when I've got everything in place and will encourage you will come take a look!   I hope you will like the changes and new, more focused collections!

As always, thanks for your support during this time!

July Holiday Earring Give-away!

I had a sunrise/sunset scene in mind as I created these brass components,...then as I designed the earrings, I drew my inspiration from a rainbow.
But today, I'm thinking all these colors could also be spectacular fireworks,..   (yes, very quiet ones)!  

Then, finally, I got inspired to celebrate the July 4th holiday by giving these away!   (In the spirit of World Peace, I will send these internationally too, so please join in  the fun if you like!) 

If you would like to signup for this Give-away,...

  • If you are on Facebook, just let me know where to look.  
  • If not, please leave me an email address where I can contact you.

25 = Silver!

A few days ago we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.  

Much like our wedding, our anniversary was small and simple.   Dinner out with family, chocolate cheesecake, gifts, and flowers!
Because I especially cherish memories of our adventures together, I gave my husband several small gifts focusing on our family travels.

Of course, can you imagine such a day as this slipping by that didn't involve jewelry?  I've never been a diamond girl, but hinted that I would love some silver stacking rings for my "silver anniversary" and showed him my favorites.   And, sure enough, I was given this sweet package with 5 beautiful rings handmade by Gretchen Baneyx  of "Bespoken Jewelry.

My thanks to my husband for 25 happy years and these lovely rings...
and to Gretchen for making them especially for me!

They are exactly what I had hoped for!

I've always loved mixed metals, 
so I slipped my gold wedding band in between the silver stack
and they are all lovely together!
(You'll just have to ignore the aging hands
and crooked fingers!)  ;-)

Best wishes to you all!
