    It looks like you had a burst of creativity after the dry spell, Chris! I especially like your earring styles here. I’m glad to see you’re back to designing again.

  • Becky B says:

    Beautiful, sometimes we have to make something just for fun instead of just to sell.

  • Chris Rehkop says:

    Thank you Rena. My design time often suffers, due to full time work , volunteer, church and home activities.

  • Chris Rehkop says:

    Absolutely! I often “test wear” my designs, so that I’m confident the buyer will enjoy wearing them.

  • Lauretta says:

    I love the bold look of the necklaces…great job!

    Beautiful! Funny how that dry spell cones and goes.
    Congrats on a great come back!

  • Melissa says:

    I love the bold green jasper! But my favorite element is the cowboy boot clasp!! May I ask where you found that?

  • Debbie Spreder says:

    Sorry about the confusion!!!!! I misspelled my name!!! Just got new phone. Decided would rather watch videos on tablet. Different email address. Thanks!!!!!!

  • Dawn says:

    the earrings omg! the left turquoise greenish hue is beautiful, and the choker with the Jasper is so inspiring an image of the Wild west. Don’t know why, but I love these so much. I could really live in them both together every day. Bohemian edge is great.
