here are a few tips and notes to get you through.

  • Oops, I forgot to get a gift for …
    Did you forget someone on your gift list? I still have some pendants available in the $35 to $50 range, including a few Upcycled Computer pendants and Rose Quartz & Prehnite pendants. Prehnite’s shade is in the range called  Greenery – which is Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year – so you’ll not only be giving someone a wonderfully healing gemstone combination, you’ll also give them a jump on fashion.acj-upcycled-computer-pendants-b     Rose Quartz & Prehnite Pendants
  • I read that somewhere…
    This year, I’ve been sharing my take on gemstone energy in a lot of places where women especially are seeking answers and solutions. Just this week, Amy Cousin Jewelry was featured in Mind Key, an online community of healing professionals, in an article written by my good friend, Dr. Lisa Avilamind-key-logo_v2
  • Color me confident and calm…

  • Every home should smell this fantastic…
    I am so happy to announce that our Sirius Mind and Body incense sticks are back in stock! It has been a long wait, but well worth it – the fragrances are as phenomenal as our alcohol-free fragrance oils, and each stick burns for over an hour – no bitter smoky after-scent either. Just the way you remember them.smb-twitter-head2

Tutorial: Upcycling Silverware into Jewelry

Hi All!

Antique Silverware

I wrote a tutorial on Making Jewelry from Old Spoons for Demand Media Studios, which published it on EHow.com. I wanted to share it with you here.

Click this link to read my article and give the tutorials a try. Yes, I said tutorials, plural! You’ll be able to create three fantastic pieces of jewelry; a ring, a bracelet, and a pendant. Tell me what you think in the comment section here and on the EHow site.

Have a great day!

Just a quick check in to share the news: I am now writing for The Motley News. My main focus will be as Food Correspondent, where every month (at least) I will treat you to ideas, anecdotes, and of course recipes. I’m excited to join the team that Charish and Evelyn have put together. They accepted me based on an article about eating bugs, so I know this is going to be a fun ride!

Hope you join me at The Motley News, and let me know what you think.

I’ll keep you posted.
