What will be Will be.

Well, Fall is here and for me it’s bitter sweet; beautiful green flowering summer is over and lovely throw-your-windows-open weather is here for better or worst. If you live in Kansas then you’ve probably got my drift, yes and there’s going to be a lot more ‘drifts’ just around the corner… winter: That’s the ‘bitter’ part on my mind right now. I’m trying to remind myself to live in the present and enjoy each moment, even if it’s -30 degrees.   And so I’m going to plunge into this beautiful and fleeting time of year, make some delicious jewelry for you and take what comes at me!

I’m not planning on adding a distinctly ‘seasonal’ feel to my designs this autumn/winter. But it does seem to happen; you’ll see little bits of warm fall colors in my up and coming jewelry pieces. And for winter… well I haven’t decided what ‘feel’ I’ll be going for. Last year they were rich and opulent, with lush fabrics and vintage crystals.
Here’s a favorite from last years’ holiday collection: A gorgeous chartreuse velvet pinwheel with a tuft of soft gray tulle and a vintage rhinestone earring is the main feature with layers of vintage chain and pearls.  
This year I’m starting of Fall with warm tones; brass and carnelian orange are lovely for autumn. This darling locket pendant necklace just hit the shop featuring the said fall colors, but honestly I didn’t mean it to be solely for fall.  Even though I have favorites for different season I like each piece I make to be an all year favorite. 
And remember Nana’s beautiful vintage rhinestones? They are now beautiful earrings! Timeless and elegant yet simple, check them out in my shop for all the details!

 And just to whet you accessory appetite here’s a sneak peek of some upcoming earrings soon to be in the shop! My sister says they have a Spanish Renaissance type feel.
