Earrings for beach dreaming

As the days are shortening and getting colder, I am using my earrings to channel that oceany, beachy, vacation-y vibe.   My carved bronze earrings that remind me of coral. Or the enamelled copper ones - all sea blue and green.   Maybe if you slip them on your ears, you can hear the ocean?!? You can find them in my store.   Not your style?  I am working on new designs and if you want to be in on release day, make sure you are signed up to my email list as an Insider.  Be the first to know!

Short days agoWe lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,  Loved and were loved, and now we lie      In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe:To you from failing hands we throw  The torch; be yours to hold it high.  If ye break faith with us who dieWe shall not sleep, though poppies grow      In Flanders fields. Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae To me the poem and the phrase "Lest We Forget" have always meant not to forget the ravages of war.  I have relatives, including my father (larger picture above) who served in WW II. ...

How to style jewelry with a patterned sweater

Today I am out and about. I wanted to wear my copper enamel pendant with this sweater because the colours match almost exactly - coppery and greens and a touch of sea blue.   But you can see that the piece disappears when worn on top of the sweater.   So I tried my carved bronze pendant instead. You can see it so much better against the green and patterns! I think this is the best for both the pendant and the sweater.   Want to know when new bronze pieces are released?  Join my Insiders email list and be the first to know.

How to style jewelry with a big sweater

With this big blue sweater, I am loving my bronze carved jewelry. They off-set each other nicely.    The neckline on this sweater makes it easy to wear the larger pendant over top, so it can be seen.  And there is enough room in this bracelet to put it over the sweater as well.   And then once I remove my glasses, I can really let my hair down!   Want to know when new pieces of carved jewelry are released?  Sign up and become an Insider - always first to know and shop new pieces.

Everyday bronze bangles

Today was a great day for geocaching.   And leaf crunching. I paired up my bronze bangle and bronze cuff just to see how they would fit together.  Then I went out geocaching, tea drinking and journal writing.   What a lovely day!   PS:  Bangles and bracelets are not yet available in my store.  Sign up to my email list if you want to be first to know when they are released!
