Flower Power or Spring Fling

Many of the styles that I see lately remind me of the sixties, the pallazzo pants, the knit sweaters, tie dye everything, it's all so retro.  So to get into the spirit of the retro look I made these laser cut flower
earrings.  They evoke the feeling of spring with flowers everywhere but they also fit into the flower power category.  I mean really, just look at them, the frame is the shape of a flower and then inside the frame are lots more flowers.

I think these earrings would be great with a simple white shirt and blue jeans, but wear them with a tie dye t-shirt and a denim skirt and you have a time warp into the 60's.

There are only one pair of these earrings and you can see more pictures in my Etsy store.

Signs of Spring

Spring is my favorite time of year and I've made some spring inspired earrings to add to my collection.

First up are these Organic Leaf Earrings. They are made from silver plated pewter and look like they are carved by hand for a very organic natural style.  They are lightweight and pretty and I've made them in two different sizes.  Including the french hook, the large hands 1 3/4" and the small hang 1 3/8 inches.  The reason I like these is they look like someone used a knife and carved out each little section.  I think they would look great with a linen blouse or a thick cotton t-shirt, but they will go with most any outfit.

Next spring inspired earring are these laser cut flowers.  They are a bouquet of flowers within a
flower shape.  Cut with a laser cutter and done in a gun metal finish these are light and airy. They hang 1 3/4 inches from your ear.

It's been a while, how have you been?

Yes, I know, my last post was in June... I've been either a slacker or way to busy to write, hmm, well I guess it's been a little bit of both.  But I'm back and will make an effort not to be gone for such a long time again.

While I've been gone I have been very busy creating and selling jewelry.  Just recently I started a new line of pendants called the Cheryl collection, inspired by a wonderful lady who loves to challenge my jewelry making skills.  A few weeks ago she came to me asked for a long necklace that has a heart pendant with a lot of bling.  Cheryl and her sister are singers and she wanted something to wear on stage with this gorgeous black dress that has a high neck and plain front.  So I made her this...

I was so inspired by the technique that I used that I started making other pendants using the same techniques and came up with 3 that I will be selling in my Etsy store in the Cheryl Collection section.  It may take a week or so to get them posted, but meanwhile here is a preview for you.
