The animal craze...

Everywhere I look I am seeing these awesome animal print bags. I first noticed my friend Erika's when she was visiting me from Idaho a few weeks ago. Now I am seeing them absolutely everywhere!! So I'm taking this inspiration to the next level...

My niece Londyn has been wanting something zebra striped really, really bad.
So I looked for something for her at the gemshow and lookie here....

Busy BEE!

I've been a busy Bee this past week but had lots of fun! First off I was making jewelry like a mad banchee for a jewelry trunk show at my mother-in-law's house. No matter how many pieces I have made I never think it's enough and can't stop making....thus my entire house is thrashed and is in need of some marry maids to clean it up!!Friday there was a small gemshow in town so my awesome sister-in-law went with me--which made it all the more fun!! Buying gems is hard work and by the afternoon we were wiped out and hit the Cheesecake Factory!
It wasn't as big as the Tucson gemshow but I was so stoked that atleast I got some new goods to help me make it through until February. I must say I was impressed with some unique finds that I can't wait to make into something really special!!
I really could have just eating these for lunch! They are so yummy!!

SWEET & simple

Sweet and simple is the statement you will make with these darling gems on sterling silver chain.
Whether you like a chunkier chain or more dainty, these pieces are very versatile for everyday wear to a night on the town with your sweetie.
Classic black is always a must. If I could, I would wear black everyday-- all day-- I love it!!

chunky monkey bracelets

(all sold)
Just off the work bench chunky monkey bracelets. I haven't made bracelets for a while. I don't know why but they are always the last thing I make. These beauts are strung with sterling silver chain so they move around a bit and you can see the chain in between. I {heart} them! These are made with chunky dyed tree seeds with fired ceramic beads in between.

Labradorite & Black and WHITE!

(this set is sold)
I LoVe Labradorite. It's one of my favorite stones. It's beautiful, versatile, shimmery and can be found from grays to blues to greens. They blues are my favorite, favorite! I love mixing them with rich brown tones and oranges especially for fall.
This bLacK & WhIte beauty is made with Gold Obsidian, quarts, and mother of pearl. Gold obsidian is a new discovery for me. I never knew how awesome it was until I bought some. It's called gold but it's BLACK until you look into it further and see a shimmer of shiny goldish tones inside of it.
(this necklace is now sold)

Fall inspiration

Anthropologie is my all time favorite online inspiration for color and style. As I was looking
today at their new fall outfits I thought this piece might fit right in.
It's hard to see but the black outfit has a super cute long orange necklace layering it and man I wish I could get my hands on that big funky orange flower!

Chunky Monkey's!

I don't know how many times I have heard " can you make me something really chunky!!" "No, not chunky enough, chunkier, chunkier!" Having that statement piece is a must!
I through one dainty piece in the mix (bottom left). Most of my long necklaces can be worn really long or you can double them up for a shorter different look. I love to creating versatile pieces.
