Tumblin' Tumbleweed!

Not really a tumbleweed, but tumbling gems!  I have 2 bracelets and a pendant in the tumbler now.  I have several cabs to wrap and tumble and maybe a new bracelet or two yet to be made!

My daughter Rachael is in Kibera, Kenya this week.  She is working at a feeding center with the young children.  She taught them a story yesterday through the help of an interpreter.  This was definitely a first for her!  She is really excited to be there helping out.

Well, I have a meeting to attend, so tomorrow I will post more photos of product and Kibera.

Remember, all sales from Etsy and ArtFire go to her next missions trip to Columbia!,, &

New name!

I've changed the name of my business from Fancy Fashions by Laura to "Inspired Wire Jewelry".  I wanted something a little more professional sounding.  How do you like it?

It is definitely a lot of work to make the change!  Fanning in Facebook, changing the blog, closing old stores and opening new ones!  Then calling the Tax people to tell them of the change, new business cards and banners.  And creating a website.  Which I have not done yet!

Also, my daughter Rachael is on a Missions Trip to Kenya.  Specifically Kibera.  World's worst poverty stricken area.  So, I am having an auction on Facebook to help raise funds.  And all proceeds from my shops, old and new, will go toward her next trip to Columbia.  That trip will be this summer for 3 weeks.  It is a work-study for college.  We are still needing to raise $2200. 

Here are the links to the shops and the auction!  Come on in and shop!  And help support Rachael.
