I just LOVE this time of year! The leaves are green, the smell of fresh lilac from the bush outside my window and the temperatures are just warm enough for short sleeves and capris (well up north it is, I'm sure it's sizzling already in the south!). To celebrate this I'm having a Kick Off to Summer sale in my Etsy Shop! Use coupon code SUMMER when checking out to receive 15% off your purchase! I decided to extend this offer and it now ends at Noon EST on June 10th!
I've been working on getting some items out of my "coming soon" album on my Facebook Page and I have a few newly listed items in my shop! First is a new Scrabble tile pendant, Calla in Coral! It's a lovely coral pink calla lily hand painted on the back of a vintage Scrabble tile game piece. Calla lilies are one of my favorite flowers along with daisies and the coral pink color is just perfect for summer outfits!
Next up is She Sells Seashells, a gorgeous one of a kind copper link and beach themed necklace! I put several hours (and blisters) into making each individual solid copper link and beaded links in this necklace. I wire wrapped the bar links and also the gorgeous champagne and creamy teal Czech glass beads. There's also a genuine shell slice and I just love the black and green swirled Czech glass shells that look like they're made from weather worn stone! There's plenty of eye catching baubles featured in this 24" long necklace and it closes with a hand forged double hook clasp that you can remove and use to shorten your chain in a cinch! Everything has been oxidized and polished to a shine and also treated with Renaissance Wax to preserve the patina and to keep it from reacting with your skin if you have allergies.
My Romantic Rosebud earrings have to be one of my favorite Czech glass earrings I've made so far! Gorgeous detailed pink luster rosebuds with a pretty marbled Picasso finish are topped with pretty bronzed bead caps and daisy spacers for a romantic vintage touch that's simple and elegant in style! These are just lovely with a casual outfit or evening attire!
Lastly, here are some lovely treasuries I've had the honor of being featured in!
