Broken Nose Puts Damper on Weekend!

Breaking my nose Thursday evening put a slight damper on my jewelry making plans for Memorial Day weekend.  I’m hoping to sit down Monday and make a few things with my new shipment of colorful freshwater pearls from Fire Mountain Gems.  In the meantime, here’s a photo of one of my personal favorites from my collection.  Enjoy!


My first blog

So I started this blog to promote my jewelry business “Stranded In The City.”  I currently have some items for sale in a local boutique (Pink Cadillac in historic downtown Plano, TX), a shop on Etsy, and will have my work published in my favorite jewelry magazine this Fall.  I’m looking for ways to introduce my jewelry to more people in the hopes that they will be inspired to wear it or even start making their own.  I also hope to include project instructions in this blog for those just entering the world of jewelry making.  Stay tuned – hopefully I’ll get the hang of this and start to post some items of interest.  You can also follow me on Twitter @krisauderer and Facebook at
