* Junk In The Trunk September 2014

Last Saturday we had record breaking numbers attend the Junk In The Trunk Vintage Market at WestWorld. VIP’s entered at 7:30am followed by early entry for $10 at 8am and general admission at 10am. There was live music & yummy food trucks. The atmoshere was electric. I’m guessing 10K people attended. If your coming to the May 2nd show .

* Dad’s Willie Bracelet

When my dad Jake was an Air Force flight instructor in the 1960’s, I’m sure he never thought that someday he’d be creating custom jewelry items & attending button conventions with his eldest daughter Leah. But he does & he has & his latest idea is stellar. While spending the afternoon together recently, we watched a Willie Nelson concert on .

* Personalized Charms

Fun News!!! We are now offering personalized charms. My fantastic Dad, known to all as Jake, has taken on this new branch of Ruby Mae Jewelry. He likes making these charms & I love that we can offer them. The possibilities are endless.

* Ruby Mae on Fox10

In June Dad & I were featured on the Fox10 Morning Show with Kristen Anderson. It was a great experience & I only choked up once. Whew!

* Dad’s Latest Idea

My  dad delights in building me things that save me time & keep me organized. Whenever I make jewelry, I typically dump the bags of jump rings onto my work station & then have to hunt around for the right size every time I need one. This mess drives him batty so he dreamt up a jump ring organizer.The idea behind this organizer .

* Making a Ruby Mae Charm

I thought it would be interesting to show the steps it takes to make a Ruby Mae charm. I hang these off each item I sell. Recently, the grandmother of a new baby named Ruby Mae Googled the name & my website popped up. She was tickled to find me & then bought two of the charms. My eldest son .

* Steady Hands

Last week I asked my dad to make me a sandwich board to place on the street pointing guests to my trunk show. I thought it would be a two hour project. I was wrong. I thought it would be a easy. It wasn't. Dad sketched it out on graph paper, found wood in hubbys shop, I went to Home .
