~New Brooches/Pins Listings~

Hello There!

I hope you all are having a great weekend!  I don't know about all of you, but it's HOT here!  So we spent the day in the pool.  The only way to stay cool around here.  It was suppose to be 107 but the temp gauge outside said 110 today.  WOW, it's only May 31st!  It's going to be a long hot summer I'm afraid! 

I have listed two more pins.  The first one has the most beautiful turquoise and green colors.  I added two Czech glass crystals to the lampwork bead.  The rest of the pin was free formed out of sterling silver.

The second pin is made of copper, a lampwork bead and two Czech glass crystals. It again is a free formed pin.  Hope you like these as much as I do. This is really a beautiful lampwork bead.  It's made of different shapes of green, purple, lavender and blues.  Pairing with the lavender crystals brings out the purples in the lampword bead.

New Listing!

Hello Everyone!

It's been a while since I've been here.  We've been out of town plus dealing with a few health issues with my husband.  Slowly getting back to normal!

So I have been busy making new things for you all to ooo and aaa over.  BUT...it's never cloudy here in Arizona and for the past few days it's been cloudy!  So what's up with that Mother Nature???  I did manage to get one pair of earrings to list.  I do have two new pins to list, but they turned out too dark.  Maybe tomorrow will be better for pictures.  Here's the earrings:

New Listing!

Hello There!

We have been out of town for four days.  Just got back late last night.  We went to sunny San Diego to spend some time with our daughter and her family.  We had the best time!  The kids were out of school on Thursday due to the fires and the heat.  Now I find that a bit weird!  I know it was hot inland but they live on Coronado Island and the highs were only in the low 90's and they don't live near the fires.  The fires are in the northern part of San Diego.  I hope they can get those out soon.  It was so devastating to see the news reports.  We could see the smoke from the island though.  Not pretty!

We did have fun watching the Navy Seals practice blowing things up on the beach.  LOL!  Where our daughter lives the beach is right over their back fence.  That beach is where the Seals practice.  So we got to watch the ships our in the ocean, helicopters hovering over the water, people dropping out of the helicopters, seeing the grenades blowing up sand and the guns going off.  WOW!  This went on all day long into the late evening.  It was AWESOME to say the least!

Anyway, we are back to our normal hot desert!  I have listed a new pair of earrings.  I love this pair of earrings.  It has three shapes, circles/round, triangles and squares.  Love the turquoise and the copper together.  Enjoy!  You can click on the picture and the link will take you to the listing.

I See Starfish

I want to say Happy Mother's Day to all my friends who have children.  I hope you all have a great day tomorrow.  That you are catered to your every little whim for the day!  :-)

I love the beach, I love going to the beach, I love seeing what I can find on the beach. Looks like a caught a couple of teal starfish!  I also love teal, turquoise and green with copper.  So when I got these starfish in I decided I had to partner them with copper.  As you can see they are swimming blow a circle of copper that has been fused together.  The way they are put together there is a lot of sparkle and movement.  The starfish are Swarovski crystals along with two other crystals complete these earrings.  If you click on the picture it will take you to the listing.

New Listings

I'm finally getting to some new listings.  I hope you like them.  The first pair if what I call a rustic tribal pair of earrings.  I love the flow to these earrings.  These have lampwork beads, faceted onyx gemstones, hematite gemstones and Swarovski crystals.  All put together with a lot of sterling silver.  Click the picture and it'll take you to the listing.

This second pair is showing a little of my Irish in me!  I used a Celtic Knot Tierra Cast charms and a green cube Swarovski crystals and they are all set in copper.  Somehow I think green goes very well with copper. Click the picture and it'll take you to the listing.

Special Order

Hello Everyone!
I've been working on a special order over the weekend.  A close friend to the family had passed away two weeks ago.  She was my mom's companion.  Everywhere my mom went Edith went.  We even started calling her Grandma 2.  She has three daughters and when they had a memorial for their mother they told a story about dragonflies that their mother told them as little girls.  So my sister and I decided I needed to make them some earrings with dragonflies.  I hope they find much joy and happy remembrances of their mother wearing these as I did making them.  RIP Grandma 2, you will be missed dearly!



Peace~

WOW!

Today I was in a seminar all day long in Phoenix.  It was the best seminar I think I've ever been to regarding the organization we belong to.  Our commodity is travel.  Plan and simple!  We had two of the best in our industry training us today.  These young men are so inspiring!  It's just amazing how one young man who is 25 and retired already and retiring his parents now too!!!  WOW is about all I can say!

My husband and I have already taken one big trip last February and are looking forward to several more this summer.  We took a Caribbean cruise to Cozumel and in Sept we are going to the Bahamas.  We have a two more trips planned in between throughout the summer.  One to Houston and another to Vegas.  Wish I could be gone ALL summer when it's just so dang hot here.  Maybe I can plan it that way next year!  LOL!  I love my life and retired to just...travel!  We never thought we could do this, but someone showed us how and you can't stop us now!  Come join us!

Have a great weekend!  Will be listing new designs next week.

Peace~

New Earrings

I love this pair of earrings.  They are sassy but elegant!  These little orbs illuminate the light, just seem to glow.  They are Swarovski crystals in emerald green, just for those birthdays in May. These are only 1 3/8 inches in length and that does including the earring hooks.  Not very big but sure hold a punch!   You may click on the picture and it will take you to the listing in my Etsy shop.
