What say we start this blog post off with with a big old fat apology. I feel like I have been doing that a lot lately, apologizing. Generally speaking I try to keep my private life private (thus the name...), but sometimes life gets a little messy and it starts to interfere with my business. This would be one of those times. I guess you could say that I am in a bit of a transition period. It's a good thing, a little scary, but good. I've gotten behind in my shipping and correspondence and for that I am sorry. I promise to get my act together and get back on track very soon.
Soooo... on to the Extra update preview! All of these pieces will be in the shop on Wednesday starting at noon EST. First up are these ultra Gothic pointed components.
There is a great deal of detail in these pieces. And... there are four holes. Most of you probably know my motto by now: more holes means more options! (You know you love that motto. Secretly.) I envision this piece hanging vertically, with drips of vintage chain draped from side to side and asymmetrically up one side. There is a definite religious feel going on so the addition of some antique rosary beads would be perfect.
Yep. Mini owl charms. :)
These cherry blossom pendants come from my own jewelry line. What's not to love?
I'm really digging these bees. I've used bees and other bugs in my own work for years and they always get attention. I made these pieces with four holes so not only do they make great connectors but they would also work really well in a bracelet.
They have a wonderful sculptural quality.
I loved the bees so much I made a two-sided pillow bead version. These are chunky and damn near perfect. :)
I wanted to share with you my latest color combination obsession. Pink and golden yellow. Years ago I visited Paris and this color mix was everywhere. Large bouquets of fresh flowers in soft sugar pink, warm yellow and lavender left quite an impression on me. Hope you like it as much as I do.
The update will start at noon on Wednesday right here. And as always, if you want to see the pieces as they go up be sure to keep your eyes on my Facebook page. Hope to see you there! :)
