My heart is an artifact



Fired up!


About 6 months ago I moved into a great new studio space and finally acquired a torch and some enameling supplies – then the fun began!

I got a very limited taste of enameling a few years ago when I worked at a bead store, and have been itching to try it again ever since. Now I can’t get enough!

Follow lilruby jewelry on Instagram if you’d like to see more – I don’t think I’ll be stopping anytime soon!

Design Ambassador!


I was surprised and flattered last week to receive an invitation to be a Design Ambassador for Jesse James Beads!

How it works is they send out a packet of beads, I use them in my designs and post them on Instagram and/or Facebook, and they send more beads – how fun is that!?

My first packet arrived today and I couldn’t wait to get started – within an hour I made 3 pairs of earrings and a pendant, which is pretty productive for me!

Here are the beads they sent, and what I made with them-

It’s interesting that some of these are beads I probably wouldn’t have picked myself, but using them stimulated my creativity which is a very good thing!

Be sure to check out all the beautiful beads available at!

Painted wings


One of my favorite things about late summer is all the butterflies, so I’ve been inspired to paint a few of my own for some jewelry that’ll be perfect now right through fall!

I have several shows coming up over the next three months, and I’m hoping my customers will enjoy these. If you’d like a pair for yourself, just let me know!
