My proofreading reference books. I spent about half this year gradually going through an online course on how to proofread transcripts for court reporters.

tree of life earrings

I was at a networking and vendor event on Tuesday, and a customer asked if I could turn these pendants into earrings. This is the result, and I really like how they turned out.
