Some Statement Pieces...


Just finished up three new stunning statement pieces and all will be coming to my Etsy shop this afternoon.
Here's a closer look at them....













I've also been acquiring some fabulous old pieces these past couple of weeks that will be used in some upcoming designs. Check out the middle brooch...it's from the Georgian era and it is absolutely breathtaking in person!




Just look at the old world craftsmanship of the brooch's foiled stone settings...


I am so thrilled and excited to offer up a design created with a treasure of such beauty from the Georgian period, so stay tuned for this one!!!



Happy Sunday Everyone!!!!

I found a beautiful bounty of antique tortoise and horn cuffs on my recent trip to North Carolina...so I got down to some serious designing business with them...





...I also have a few pair of earrings coming today...









...and some beautiful antique glass orbs on vintage watch chains will be available at the shop later today too!













Hope your weekend is going fabulously!

Little Pieces Of Nature...


Hi everyone...just getting back settled in from my escape to the Smoky Mountains, and wanted to share a few pics of my trip and some inspiration from my Spring Break...but, don't worry, I will not bore you with too many mountain pics this go around...lol...

We watched many of sunsets from the deck and just really got down to relaxing...Our little Maggie Valley is truly a place of "Zen" for us!



...and I also got to do some antiquing....found some gorgeous old bar pins and Victorian brooches for some upcoming simple designs...


 ...took a few nature hikes in the mountains. Had some gorgeous weather during the days, oh, but the nights were sooooo chilly!



And I found some little pieces of nature to use in this weeks designs. These are wonderful little presents offered up from the heartland of America!!!


And the finished pieces with Smoky Mountain relics...



















These four new pieces featuring little pieces of nature coming to the shop tonight!
 Hope to see you there!!!
