Summer Sparklers

Did you think I meant the kind of sparklers you light for the 4th of July? πŸ˜‰

Well, they are quite festive . . . but I meant a different type of sparkler . . .

I’m talking summer jewelry!


Here’s a pretty bracelet for the upcoming season – created with the colors of the sea and as refreshing as a splash of cool water.

It’s no secret I’m addicted to bling. In fact, I don’t feel totally dressed without jewelry.

BUT, I am also a wimp when the summer temperatures soar.

If it’s hot, hot, hot – I’ll usually abandon my necklaces (I KNOW – Gasp!) and rely on a pair of dangle earrings and a showy bracelet as accessories.


How about you? Does the summer affect your choices in accessories?


Earrings R Us

What can I say? I can’t seem to stop making these “bead woven” earrings. πŸ˜‰

~Southwest Serenade~

They differ from the other earrings I make in that this type is created with tiny beads and thread, instead of larger beads and metal wire!

As a die-hard purple-lover – I am way out of my “color” comfort zone here, but I’ve discovered that I absolutely LOVE this blend of matte turquoise and copper bronze.

The ear wires are made of brown niobium metal, which has a lovely reputation for being kind to sensitive ear lobes!

I have another pair in the works, but I’m itching to begin a special crochet project… Decisions, decisions!


What are you trying to fit into your schedule?



See You in the Spring

Well, by the time we meet here again on Monday, it *will* be spring!

I know . . . silly joke. (I’ve got a million of β€˜em!) πŸ˜‰


One rainy day this past week, I was longing for a little spring color – so I made earrings.

I’m calling these Violet Petals

And these are May Flowers

Both pairs are currently available on my website.


Have a fabulous weekend!

See ya in the Spring Monday. πŸ˜‰



Watching the Mail

I keep waiting for my invitation to the big wedding across the pond!

Surely Prince William and Lady Kate will be sending me one any day now. πŸ˜‰

If they do, I’m ready for the festivities with these earrings!

Don’t they look like Sapphires and Platinum?

I just finished them the other day and they feature Swarovski crystals in Sapphire Blue along with Czech Glass Silver Metallic Beads. The lever backs are sterling silver. Now available in my web shop!


Anyone else bothered by changes in weather? Lately, I seem to get a headache whenever the barometric pressure is high. What a nuisance!

Have a happy day πŸ™‚
Smiles and hugs,
