Etsy Favorites

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Etsy items and stores. These artists are so creative and have such unique items.

Coeur et Dentelle by Sybile

I love her paintings and prints. I can't wait until I have the space to put up one of her prints on my walls.

Tangerine Orange Stingray Silver Cuff by UNEARTHED

This is a sister team who makes jewelry using exotic leathers. Using stingray? How cool is that?

Yellow Peony silk lined clutch bag by redrubyrose.

Beautiful handmade limited edition clutches from the UK. She has a fabulous collection.

Keepsake Collection

I've just recently bought a bunch of lockets to start, what I call, the Keepsake collection. They do open so you can put a little keepsake in the locket. I had one customer call to tell me that she was going to put a piece of cloth from her sister's baby's garment or blanket inside one of these necklaces to give to her sister. Such a sweet gift!

If you live in the Atlanta area, you can find some of these pieces at DressCodes in Decatur. Otherwise, they're available at my online shop. I can always customize, so contact me to create your perfect piece!

Zodiac Necklaces

I know I've been a bit MIA, but after a bit of a creative rut, I have started working on new pieces. A new series to my collection are Zodiac necklaces. I used to love reading those astrology books that explained the traits of each sign and which ones were and weren't compatible. So here's a look at the brass ones that I've made. They are black and ivory acrylic cameos that are set on brass and accented with a cute glass heart bead. They are available for purchase from my shop, so please check it out. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Fall Fashion - Minimalism

So it's now the hottest most humid time of year and everyone wants to stay indoors with the comfortable air conditioning. So it's the perfect time to think of Fall clothes! Well, I can't imagine shopping for Fall or even think about trying on pants or coats, but fall fashion is my absolute favorite. I just wish the season was longer so we could wear the clothes more. Well it seems that a lot of fashion houses are going for the more simple, minimalistic look. And black is the new black. Here are some of my favs!
