Sea glass inspired necklaces



Inspired by the little seaside town where I live 

and the ever-changing colors of the sky and ocean 

these tumbled glass beauties were created

 by mixing and matching a variety of natural materials

with bright beautiful shades of blues and greens.






I wanted to create multilayered multifaceted pieces

that can be layered or worn alone

and are perfect for that statement pop of color.

Grateful to have them included in the latest Jewelry Affaire Magazine!

Treasured vintage button collection



I pulled out my button box and gathered together over 50 

of my all time favorite vintage gold toned buttons.





A wide piece of elastic was the perfect base to attach them to. 

I cut it to fit my wrist and dyed it to match.




Some of my treasured collection of vintage gold tone buttons




that have been hidden away for so long are brought out and



 all lovingly hand sewn onto a piece of wide elastic 

that I dyed to match.



I love it!   




Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too!






I couldn't seem to stop with just one!

Fun with succulents!




My local Anthropologie hosted a little workshop on how to create 

headbands using succulents.




Bits of lace used as a base, glue guns and lots of little 

succulent bits were strewn across the tables.




Julie, from House of Sunshine, was giving us suggestions 

on how to create our pieces.


   

We were surrounded by beautifully displayed inspiration 

and provided with light refreshments.




 

 Here is my completed little number displayed as a hat band.



On a bed of greenery,



and below, on my girlfriend Marlo's beautiful head!




 That was fun!
