NEW Fonts

To say I am happy to have new fonts would be an understatement. Within the last month I have acquired THREE new fonts. I don't know why but using them totally has my creativity flowing... basically, expect new necklaces soon.

I now offer the following fonts:

LARGE Uppercase
Standard Uppercase
plain lowercase
cursive lowercase
funky typewriter

Don't judge my stamping... I was hurrying so I could take a picture

I should have pictures of all of the fonts within the next week or so once I have my NEW SITE up and running!!! Check back for a new necklace giveaway, a new website and a new business name (no more AR Designs... my husband says it sounds like "arrrr" <---- he was coming up with some pretty interesting pirate related names for me, ha!)

{NEW} Stacked Necklace

Two discs, one stacked on the other. Slightly cupped, hammered and brushed to give a vintage feel.
Freshwater potato pearl and 24" ball chain/rolo chain included (pictured: tiny rolo chain).

The bottom disc is approximately 1 1/4" and the top disc is a little under 3/4".

24 characters can be stamped on the bottom disc (including spaces) and 18 characters (including spaces) on the top disc. If you need more characters stamped, we can use bigger discs to accommodate more names.


Coming soon.... NEW FONTS!!!! I can't wait until they all arrive, I will post pic's ASAP. Hope you all have an exciting New Year's... don't do anything I wouldn't do ;)

Merry Christmas and a sneak peek....

I can't believe that I am finally done with all of my Christmas orders.... it was C-R-A-Z-Y!

 Here is a peek at a new necklace I will be offering. I have had these hammered hearts for a year and haven't really known what to do with them. I whipped this necklace together the other day and I must say, I really like it! I am thinking that I need one for myself.



Necklace is $38

Anyway, I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!!!!!

For a friend....

I made this necklace for a friend (S) that I have had since PRESCHOOL!! I remember the first time I consciously deceived someone; I was playing at S's house and it was time for me to go home. S's mom drove me the 5 miles to my house and told me to go inside and make sure my parents were home... I walked in the house, looked all around and didn't see them. I decided to go check their room and there they were, asleep. I tip-toed quietly out of the house and told S's mom, "Nope, they're not home!" where she proceeded to drive us back into town and I continued playing at her house. Needless to say, I got in BIG trouble that night. Ahhh, the good ol' days ;-)

I hope you like it!!!
