Earrings for a Wordless Wednesday

It’s too hot to speak!

(Our weather guy says the “feels-like” temperature is 100 degrees! I would have been perfectly happy not knowing that.) πŸ˜‰

No matter! I’m going to distract myself with a bit of bling . . .


This first pair is made with Vintage Swarovski components and petal-shaped, 14K gold-filled earwires.

And this pair in sterling silver features a color scheme with the soothing coolness of an aqua blue sea . . .

Both pairs now available in my shop! πŸ™‚


Stay cool today – wherever you are!



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?


She’s STILL Talking

How can this be my 600th post????

And while the number 600 isn’t necessarily one of the usually celebrated milestones, let’s party anyway!

Pass the noisemakers; don’t be shy – put on one of the party hats, too!!!

What’s a party without a door prize, so how about a giveaway?

Teal Drops

For these earrings, I used both Vintage and Contemporary Swarovski Crystals in glorious shades of Teal and Deep Purple! They measure approximately 1 1/2″ long, and feature sterling silver earwires.

If you’d like a chance to win them, answer “Count me in” at the end of the following “mini questionnaire” I have for you, today.

(PLEASE answer the questions even if you do not want to be entered in the giveaway.)

1. Does this page load quickly or slowly for you? (I’m trying to determine if some of the items in my sidebar are slowing this page too much.)

2. Do you find it too much effort to read blogs that update daily? Would new posts a few times a week be just as good, in your opinion?

3. What fascinates you? (I know it might seem like a tough question but I ask because I’m looking for things that truly pique your interest. Perhaps I can include posts on them in the future.

4. For the earrings giveaway, will you choose “Count me in” or “Not this time” for your answer?

A winner will be chosen at random on Monday, March 28th!

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,
