2012 gunmetal bird necklace by JLHilton
2012 gunmetal bird necklace
Some people say this looks like the "mockingjay" from Hunger Games. That wasn't my intent. I haven't read the books or seen the movies. Just thought it was a cool bird image.

2010 fine silver rings
Some rings I made using a butane torch, then hammering patterns into the metal. The technique only works with fine silver.

A sampling of pretty little pieces from 2014, featuring amethyst, Czech glass, freshwater pearls, filigree, butterflies and a key charm.

In June, we celebrated my youngest daughter's 10th birthday and attended ConCarolinas, where we sat behind George R.R. Martin during opening ceremonies (not that he knew we were sitting behind him, we're not pals or anything, we just breathed the same air). I also worked as social media assistant for ConTemporal. You can see some of the photos in my gallery. In July, we celebrated my oldest daughter's 14th birthday.

While we took the summer off from homeschooling, I made a lot of jewelry. Nothing terribly exciting, just used up some of the odds and ends cluttering my studio. I started a new character in Skyrim, a Breton conjurer named Fleurine Greenhart, though I still played a little of my level 84 Imperial Nightingale rogue Zephyr Silvertongue and my level 58 Nord assassin Silvara.

No, I haven't finished writing the third Stellarnet book, and for all three people who've read the series, I apologize. I've found that, while I enjoy creating and writing stories, I really don't like being "an author." So, no deadlines for me. Let that be a lesson, kids, don't try to turn something you love into work. But I am still writing. In fact, I've been pretty excited about a fantasy novella I'm working on, featuring a dwarf as the love interest.

I'll be going to the Geek Gala in October. I'm also planning to sell jewelry at a small local event called Celtic Christmas in December and at Illogicon in January.

I saw your description and you reminded me a little bit of my daughter (yes, I'm OLD, I have a teenage daughter). :) She calls herself a "crazy old cat lady in training" and she likes video games and Tom Hiddleston. She likes to draw, mostly comics and illustrations, and she does "old lady crafts" (as she calls them) like cross-stitch and latch-hook. lol
