Its been a while since my last posting. When you are responsible for designing, creating, photographing, posting and selling, things get a little hectic at times. But never fear, more posts are here !

Goldstone and Silver Necklace

This is a necklace I created a while back but haven't found the time to showcase online.

I have always loved goldstone...something about the tiny flecks of sparkles embedded inside makes it special.

Goldstone usually calls for gold or brown tone accents, but for a different look I went with silver for this necklace.

It does not detract from the shine of the beads, but adds a certain something,  je ne sais quoi !

Mothers' Day Rings

Multicolor Wire Ring
I love rings...always have... and at any given time, I can be found wearing atleast two in each hand.

One of my really sad moments in recent past was when I had to take my rings off because my fingers were swollen in pregnancy. Thankfully that episode is behind me and I'm back to flaunting my rings !

My mother loves rings too, wears many of them and loves to coordinate them to her outfits. I got my love of rings from her, so its only fair that I make some special Mothers' Day rings.
Last week while at the craft store, I saw these vintage style buttons and knew they'd make very catchy cocktail rings. These large, chunky rings are all the rage right now.
Bluebutton Wire Ring

They make the perfect little shiny, sparkly catchy gifts !

Mothers' Day Earring Bonanza

We are just a few days away from Mothers' Day and I am on my way to a Mothers' Day party.
Want to know what I'm carrying with me.....earrings, earrings and more earrings, a veritable treasure trove of them !
Here is a sampling from my box.

Rosy Cheek Earrings

These earrings are pretty in pink, perfect for the new match the rosy glow in her baby's chubby cheeks !

They are made with sparkly Swarovsky crystals and iridescent Toho spacers.

Green & Gold Earrings
For the mom who wants versatility, these two pairs of earrings fit the bill. They are simple enough to wear to work and dressy enough to go out for a special evening.

The first pair is made of emerald green Czech glass beads with gold Toho spacers....

Jasper & Gold Earrings

 ...and this pair is made of  a dark red poppy Jasper with gold Toho spacers.

Both are attractive, tasteful and eminently wearble.

Humming Bird Earrings

And finally, the pièce de résistance and my personal favorite....the beautiful, elegant and exquisitely detailed humming bird earrings. Any mom is going to be over the moon when she receives this !

Pretty pewter humming bird beads pair up with vintage glass flowers and leaves to create a pair that is full of natural splendor.

Get your mom a great pair of earrings this mothers' day...or get her all of them....after all she has given all her love to you !
