So I’m finally getting around to posting all my uploaded earrings photos, like I’ve been meaning to do.  My friend K asked to see some pics of a pair of blue pearls, and I promised I’d send her the link, so here is all the jewelry I’ve been meaning to get around to showing off~

I’m always looking for jewelry inspiration, so here’s something from an independent artist that really struck my fancy~


I really love the artist’s use of nature forms, rich colors and unexpected details.  Just gorgeous!

August Projects

August has been very empty here, because I’m currently working on filling several commisions~

My friend H is getting married, but couldn’t find anything she liked to wear with her dress.  So I stepped in to the rescue!

Here’s her necklace:


It’s mother of pearl, seed pearls, and some beautiful aventurine rectangular beads.  Sweet H wanted something a little bit funky for her country-themed wedding.  She’s also wearing cowboy boots with her dress, which is just adorable~

I’ve also made her earrings and a bracelet to match, and am working on necklaces for each of her five bridesmaids~  Her accent color is yellow, and finding that in pearls has proven quite a challenge.  I’m thinking of substituting honey opals instead, if I can find some.

Updates to come!

August Inspiration

For August, I’m feeling whimsical.  Lush details, strongly hue-ed colors and touchably soft textures are what I want right now.  So here’s my August inspiration board:

Colorfree Friday

I know we all predicted that our no-color-allowed work dress code would be gone within a year, but this doesn’t seem to have happened.   Well, until it does, I’m still searching for inspiration in the black, white and grey hues.  Here’s some outfits that fit the bill~

I’m not sure how you manage to fit this much awesome into one pic, but well done!  I love the print on that dress, the funky glasses, and the shoes~ especially the shoes.

All grey can really work, if you add some sparkle and texture~ I’m going to try this sometime soon…
