A Forest's Realm...


Hi my friends....I have a new collection dropping today that's all things inspired by the forest! This collection is so delicate and features little bits of inspiration from nature and the wood. Hand carved deer and fox heads, magical slabs of  landscaped moss agates, druzy quartz snowflakes, little crystal raindrops, mother of pearl crescent moons, seed pearl sparrows, mistletoe picture frames and a ruby eyed deer make up this beautiful collection I call the "Forest's Realm".....and they will be available for further viewing and purchase later today in my Etsy shop.




















Happy weekend to all of you.....
...and Long Live the Forest!!!

Back In My Other Happy Place...


I'm back!..... to my other and most important happy space...The Studio!!!
I'm so excited to get started designing with my jewelry/gem show finds...and I wasted no time as soon as I got back to my home base...Florida.
I've created 5 new pieces since I've arrived home...all originating from the inspiration I found at that fabulous gem show last week....Here's a peek at what's coming to the shop today....









I was also inspired this past week by ancient Roman designs....My earrings this week reflect a little bit of that element....
