Unexpected Treasures

I spent this last Saturday with my best friend Patty and her family hosting a garage sale. We had a ton of fun, lots of hard work and many laughs. In the middle of all that fun her brother and his friend Rhonda stopped by. It was such a pleasure meeting Rhonda for the first time. I have several of her wonderful handmade pieces of jewelry and love wearing them all. I would encourage all of my friends to take a look at her blog if looking for fun jewelry for yourself or as gifts.
What an unexpected treasure meeting the artist in person.

About Rhonda:
After graduating with a BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia PA, she migrated out west. She did the usual restaurant stint and ended her career with food as a private cook. The woman she worked for showed her some cloisonne pieces she had made and Rhonda fell in love with the process. She has been privileged to sell her handcrafted cloisonne earrings, pins and pendants at the Pike Place Market in Seattle WA since 1984. You can find her there most Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. For information and pricing contact Rhonda at and be sure to visit her blog at:
