Happily Drowning in Rings

Six pounds of metal in the form of hundreds of small rings just arrived from Canada. If I didn't still have to price everything for this weekend's show, I'd be parked on the couch with two pairs of pliers, humming. In addition to stocking up on my favorite shiny copper, I ordered some solid bronze, and some black and bronze anodized aluminum rings to experiment -- they're sooo pretty! When this show is over, I will be listing a bunch of new chainmaille bracelets, necklaces and watches -- I've been wearing the prototype watch every day for a couple weeks, and I LOVE it! I'll also be building a chainmaille necklace and bracelet configurator to allow customers to easily order maille pieces in custom lengths.

Hi Karen,

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you enjoy the cookies and dulce de leche. Unopened, the can of dulce de leche will keep in the pantry for a weeks. If you're looking to store the leftovers, remove the dulce de leche from the can and store in an airtight container in the fridge since it is milk. You could probably microwave the rest, stir it into coffee or pour on french toast or ice cream! mmm!

Hope this helps. Enjoy and happy holidays!
