New Earrings And A Diorama....


Good Day everyone, hope the wintery weather we are all having isn't getting you all down. I have been using this bad weather down time to get my local locations stocked up for the upcoming holiday season, prepare for a local Christmas show and tackle a major project here at home that has been needing tending to for quite some time. What project might that be, you ask? My dreadful, and highly unorganized closet! And that's putting it mildly. It looks as if a massive bomb exploded inside of it!!! Will post some before and after pics of the project in the days to come. But in the meantime, here are a few new pieces I have been working on this week....


Some delightful little baubles with aqua stones....



...some old carved roses...



...tiny little Christmas deer that float from the lobes along with deep red-pink rubies...



...and a stunning little Seahorse Diorama....


All coming tonight to my Etsy shop!!! Be back soon with some pics of my project on the homefront and some upcoming pieces for the Holiday show I have been working on. Stay warm and creative everyone!!!

Random Bits of Bling....

Topsail State Park-Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 2008

Hello again! I was over visiting with Glenda at "A Dab Of This A Dab Of  That" blog and she had mentioned (along with some gorgeous pictures) how beautiful the sunsets were this time of year . Well, it got me to thinking (and digging) through my archives of millions of photos on my laptop to find a few of the oodles of sunset photos I have taken over the years. I just thought I would share a few with you today and to concur with Glenda that this is a great time of year for the beautiful sunsets God can bestow upon us.  Here are a few of my past years sunset endeavors...

JewelryPalooza Revisited....


I've been really at it lately!!! Trying to get all stocked up for an upcoming local Holiday Market (more about that later) and trying to keep my local store shelves and my Etsy shop stocked at the same time has been quite daunting! But things have been rolling right along nicely and here are several new pieces that will be in my Etsy shop starting early this afternoon. (Gotta tune into Pemberly and The Paradise tonight,
 so I will start listing early today ;-)
here's a little preview...





























Oh, and I must share these cute photos of my niece in her Halloween costume with you....


très adorable n'est-elle pas????


Have a wonderful week everyone, see you back here soon with more details on my upcoming Holiday Market I will be attending.

Beautiful Paste And Gemstones...


 I've finished lots of new pieces this past week and they all are brimming with beautiful gemstones and gorgeous paste pieces. Here's a little looky....











Just look at the gorgeous rubies I was able to get my hands on this past week! Rubies have always been my favorite gemstone, I just can't get enough of them....






I also used one of the prettiest French rosaries I have ever come across in one of my designs this week...
containing the beautiful elements of aqua glass, a scrolled fleur crucifix, and cherub rosary center








...and this stunning St. George piece, I have been hoarding for years.... I have finally found the perfect place and design for him....






All of these pieces will be in my Etsy shop beginning late this afternoon. Come see more pictures of them there!!! Have a lovely weekend everyone!
