Visit to New Jersey

Jun 22nd

Alec and Alex at Princeton University

My daughter Alex and her boyfriend, Alec, live in Princeton, New Jersey, so we decided it was time for a visit to New Jersey. We also had my mom, who lives in Canada, join us. We had a terrific time. New Jersey gets a bad rap at times. Quite frankly….. it’s a beautiful state. Alex and Alec live downtown Princeton. I thought her college campus (Ohio University) was beautiful until I saw Princeton’s. WOW!!!

The above pic was taken at Princeton with Alex and Alec.

Visiting the Jersey Shore.

I’ve heard a ton about the Jersey Shore….lol. Alex and Alec decided to take us to Point Pleasant. It was a very clean beach with a fun boardwalk. We had a lot of fun that day!! We weren’t used to the humidity so being by the water helped a little….lol.

Our kind hosts in New Jeresy

On our last day we were invited to stay with Alec’s parents, Eileen and Tony. What gracious hosts. We shared many stories and laughs together. Alex got out the selfie stick for group photos.

Manon on a wine bottle

Eileen and Tony found this bottle of wine for me….:). It was a Rose and quite good. I was so stoked to see anything with my name on it but the bottle of wine was the icing on the cake!!

Visiting New Jersey with family

Three generations of crazy!! Love this pic!!

We loved our visit to New Jersey. It must be so pretty in the fall. We’re looking forward to our next jaunt there.

Sterling silver cuff with Arizona Blue turquoise

Before I left I finished this sterling cuff bracelet with Arizona Blue turquoise. I have four cuffs on my table right now that I’ll show next week.

Sterling silver ring with Bisbee turquoise

I also made this Bisbee spiderweb turquoise ring. It is a very collectible stone as the Bisbee mines are now closed.

See you soon!!

My work can be found here and at Echo of the Dreamer gallery.

Fill your heart with art



My name is Manon. (pronounced Man + O) Yes….my mom cursed me with my name. In her defense I guess she never though I’d leave Quebec. I’m a jewelry artist and painter. I’ve been creative as long as I can remember and things haven’t changed. I now live in Scottsdale, AZ with my man, Rob. I spend most days in my studio making pieces that speak to my heart. Thanks for stopping by!!
