Lately, I’m lovin’ . . .

We celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary this week. ๐Ÿ™‚

* My (finally finished!) bead-woven necklace in plum, gold, and midnight blue.
I wanted to make a design that was showy but still understated enough to allow the artisan-crafted polymer pendant to take center stage.

Plum Beaded Collar


* Aquamarine AB Dangle Earrings with Textured Brass Rings! These were fun to make. They remind me of a pair I had as a young “hippie” (well, not really a hippie but I was a teenager during that era and wore the fashion of the time.)

  1. Oh Crystal, Happy anniversary to you and your Sweet Sir Beads!!! What a beautiful bouquet he picked for you! xo

    I think the woven bead necklace you created to go with that pretty pendant works perfectly. I can just imagine how that beauty must twinkle, and those earrings are gorgeous too. The stones are such a lovely shade of blue. I don’t think you’ve ever made anything I didn’t love. You design the prettiest things!!!

    I hope you and Sir Beads enjoy a wonderful anniversary weekend. Lots of love to you both!

  2. Happy Anniversary from one 42’er to another! It’s a Wonderful Life!

    The necklace is stunning. I love how your crystals compliment the pendant. The earrings are great too.

    Hope you are enjoying the final days of summer. September starts the sloping temps that you enjoy, but not so much me!!

The food is out of this world. Take Care.
