The Reader ...

I'm not frightened. I'm not frightened of anything. The more I suffer, the more I love. Danger will only increase my love, will sharpen it, will give it spice. I will be the only angel you need. You will leave life even more beautiful than you entered it. Heaven will take you back and look at you and say: "Only one thing can make a soul complete and that thing is love."

all about r i n g s...

I just love rings!! I love to wear them on my ring finger and I especially love to wear them on my first finger. My husband and I vacation every year in Wilmington, North Carolina and they have the coolest little stores down there. Every time I go I always find rings I fall in love with....only problem is the price. Considering I'm a stay at home mom I, unfortunately, do have a budget. How do I balance that and the fact I love fashion?? Well, that's why I've decided to start making more rings. For awhile I have been working with vintage buttons, but I've now discovered a whole new range of buttons to work with. Above are a few of my new pieces where I have turned unique buttons into fashionable rings.

As always...enjoy!

go green.....

Yeah!! Time to celebrate....Yellow Finch Designs has gone green! I have been planning on doing this for so long, and although I have had many "green" aspects about my business, I was never ready to officially "go green." Well friends, it's official...I have gone green.

In order to avoid paper waste I no longer use labels for my bags. My bags are now made out of recycled paper as well are my boxes. I have invested in two new fabulous stamps. You can see the one above that is used for boxes and bags. I also have a return address stamp so no more labels with shipping! When I ship I use recycled paper and bubble wrap to make sure your items reach you safely and I do not include a receipt. Electronic receipts can be found on etsy.

As always, I love to use old pieces (aka vintage) to create something new and modern. I recycle old jewelry and buttons and give them new meaning in the form of contemporary jewelry.

If anyone out there has jewelry they were going to through away S T O P and pass it along!
