More Vintage! Yeah!

I love vintage lucite! It's fun, colorful and light! I can't handle a heavy earring so these are perfect. This is my current favorite. It makes me happy just to look at the colors.

Vintage Treasures

I stopped in at the corner antique store and found so many interesting pieces! Amelia was in Idlewild with Grandma and Grandpa for the weekend. It's amazing what a difference not having a 6 year old in an antique store can make. I was checking out thinking 'wow! I found more than ever before!' then I realized it's probably because I actually took my time and looked through as many baskets of jewelry as I could without worrying about Amelia knocking over a $50 antique vase. hahaha

The earrings in the picture are made with parts of an antique necklace that I found. I added brass filigree and czech crystals. A pair already sold on my Etsy site!

The picture of Amelia was taken by my mom in Idlewild. It's Amelia sitting by a little area of water. My mom made Amelia in color and the backgroung in black and white to symbolize Amelia's ability to block out everything around her while she's enjoying nature. Very creative mom! My mom makes cards and teaches classes. Here's her blog

Have a great day!

Cherry Quartz and a Baseball Game

Here are the earrings... see below for the details!

Cherry Quartz and gold chain earrings and necklace! I made these while I was supposed to be getting ready for a baseball game! I'm terrible! I like how it turned out so I even made matching earrings.

Amelia played in the championship for her Pixie League and they won! I'll post pictures when they are ready. She hasn't set her trophy down yet. It's cute!

Locket Frenzy

I have lockets in stock and I am going to be creating many locket necklace over the next few weeks. This is an oldie but goodie that I made in the past. I was able to duplicate it after stumbling upon the same locket.

This vintage owl ceramic pendant is so big and funky! I am secretly hoping that it doesn't sell so I can keep it. I'm sure it's 1-of-a-kind. I'll give it 2 weeks and then I'll have to wear it! Off to watch fireworks. Why they are on the 3rd is a mystery! See the bare walls in the background!? Progress has come to a halt on the Studio renovations. I'll start back up after school starts again. Not enough hours in the day!

I'm in Love..........with a bead

OK... I'm officially looney! I received these vintage glass beads (which I paid too much for!) in the mail and I can't stop looking at them. I think of them all of the time. I'm seriously in love with them. I'm starting to worry. hahaha

Seriously though, I am in love with them!

OK, really... here's the necklace that I made using only a few of these amazing vintage beads!
