June Jewelry

SOLD

So I've been missing in action, since its tough to do a blog without a camera, and mine has been missing for nearly two weeks now.  I've about resigned myself to the fact that it probably was lifted from my car while garage saling. :(  The loss of my camera makes for some expensive thrifting.

I'm dusting off my old faithful camera, the little used up 4 year old 3 megapixl Canon and will give it a whirl, so that I can at least give you a glance at what I've been up to.

We have a "Garden Party" theme this month at the shop I sell in, so these are a few of the creations I came up with gardening in mind.  Kind of fun!  What do you think?
Necklace #1
This necklace has a mix of techniques and unique elements used to create it.
This photo shows it at its longest length with the extension included.
This photo has the extension removed, so that it is shorter in length.
This photo shows the complete necklace with its extension chain.
Easily added or removed, this extension gives you great versatility.
SOLD
Necklace #2
This is another fun design I came up with one week-end while up at our cabin for the week-end.  Such a fun and inspirational place to create jewelry.  Hopefully, in a few years I'll be able to spend even more time up there being creative in the summer months.  SOLD

Necklace 3
Simply fun!
SOLD
Necklace #4
This pearl necklace is stunning in real life, but photographed poorly.
SOLD
Necklace #5
This necklace has incredible vintage details incorporated into it.  Lots of hours of labor and some awesome Peruvian opals that have been mixed with an array of fabulous vintage beads and unique finds.  Truly a one-of-a-kind creation that no one else in the world will ever have anything like it.  Fun!
SOLD

Won't you join us at the upcoming Garden Party at the French Flea in Anoka, MN.  It is next week on Thursday from 10-8 p.m, Friday and Saturday from 10-5 pm and Sunday from 12-4 pm.  Check out the blog here.  New photos should be added soon on their site.

Thanks for your visit, and please if you have time let me know what you think about these designs. The blog family can really help out designers to know if what they are creating is something to keep doing, or if one should change their designs. Thanks alot!

  1. How terrible. Thievery is so wrong. I'm tired of people that don't want to work, but steal what you work for. BUT love your jewelery and am glad you at least have a back up camera. Lezlee

  2. Pictures are great, hate you lost your new camera. I've been praying you'd find it. Maybe there's still hope. Just love all your jewelry here, but I'll bet that cross necklace won't last the first thirty minutes of the garden party!! Have a great time time at the French Flea!
