Fleurs And Tassels...


Hello my friends...little late posting today, and I do sincerely apologize for that. Arrived to our happy place where I thought that might be the beginning of some relaxation time, but, man o' man was I wrong. There's been a new project going every single day since we got here and I am seriously whooped! But, the good news is, I squeezed in some time to head out to my local mountain antique haunt the other day and found some gorgeous old goodies...and have since turned them into this week's "Fleurs And Tassels" earring collection which will drop later this afternoon in my Etsy shop. Or, as usual, you can contact me earlier before they get to Etsy for first dibs on them. Here's this week's collection...

In honor of the blooming dogwoods...

 












Thank you all for stopping by to see what I have been up to. Stay tuned here, as I will be posting upcoming projects at our mountain getaway, along with the new weekly jewelry collections.
Stay safe and healthy everyone!

Butterfly Mountain...


Happy Sunday to you all! Made it to my 'Happy Place' for the summer and all is well and the nature inspiration is flowing. This week's collection is all about the butterflies!!! This collection features some stunning antique filigree silver butterflies that I have paired up with some great old antique and vintage chains. Simple,wearable summer pieces all inspired by my mountain butterfly Heaven...



...I just LOVE the tiny Victorian bell that I found on one of my trips to England 
on this sweet little piece....



....the 'large and in charge' old butterfly on the necklace below really commands the room...



...and this magical little fern frond picturesque agate paired beautifully with this old Victorian silver butterfly bar brooch...


















Come see more of this wonderful old butterfly collection this afternoon in my Etsy shop. Or you can always reach out to me early here on the blog, Etsy, or over on my IG page for first dibs on them. 
Hope you all can get to your "happy place" too this week!!!

Some Bracelet Love...


Good Saturday to you all! Debuting this week's collection a day early this week...and will also be listing the collection this evening (Saturday in the PM) for those of you who might be interested in these "one size fits all" Victorian expandable bracelet bands that I have embellished with fun antique and vintage elements from all over the world. Several of the embellishments came from my travels to London years ago and a couple of them come from France. So, with that all said, enjoy a sneak peek into this week's collection and feel free to reach out to me to call first dibs on any of them...














...I will also add my little bird charm to any of these bracelets at buyers request for no extra charge...












Come see more of these over on my IG page or in my Etsy shop later this evening. Have a great week everyone...try to get out and enjoy that wonderful sunshine.

A Delicate Cross Layering Collection...


I've got a new collection this week that is understated and soft-spoken. It is inspired by the closeness I have felt lately with my Lord and Savior. When times get hard or strange or difficult, I find strength and comfort in Him! That's what this week's collection is all about! Adorning and honoring some comfort pieces inspired by The One↑ who gives me so much strength, peace and joy on a daily basis. Here's this week's six piece delicate layering cross collection .....






















The collection will be available later this afternoon in my Etsy shop...
 Come see more photos of them there!
Peace, Love and The Light be with you all!!!
