In The Meadow, Earthy New Jewelry!

Close up of toggle clasp

In The Meadow Necklace
I've been busy make more and more jewelry!  This earthy pair is stunning and in a trendy boho chic style!  Gorgeous Czech glass flowers in a shimmery mossy green grace these designs along with peridot genuine Swarovski crystals on the necklace, antique bronze metal beads, and chartreuse and smoky brown seed beads.  These colors stand out beautifully with the warm antique bronze chain and findings!  The necklace features a beautifully detailed front closing toggle clasp that's just too pretty to be hidden behind your neck!  I have not forgotten about my love for copper, for delicately designed copper bead caps and daisy spacers adorn the Czech flowers.

In The Meadow
I just love flowers, without getting overly gaudy of course, and pairing them with vintage style findings makes the most lovely intricate designs!  If it's not apparent, earth tones strike me as the most beautiful colors when it comes to designing my jewelry and for the same reasons I choose copper and bronze instead of gold and silver.  Though your traditional gold and silver are indeed very pretty, it's just so refreshing to me to see alternative jewelry metal choices.

The Cat's Meow Earrings

Another piece of jewelry I recently listed is The Cat's Meow earrings, which add a touch of whimsy for anyone who is a cat fancier!  The charms were just too adorable to let sit in my beading box all lonely and unused so I decided to make earrings which would go just lovely with the OOAK charm bracelet of the same title or they just charming by themselves too!  These darling little earrings would look cute with just about anything!  I had to make myself a pair since they remind me of my fat cat Jasper :)
