Two exciting things are currently in process.

First, I am thinking of creating leather/glass bracelets, as well as leather/gemstone so that I may offer products at different price points. Second, I have shipped a batch of bracelets out to sunny California for a photoshoot with the lovely photographer Alex De Souza! More details to come... cannot wait to see what happens! It feels a little like a dream....

A New Addition

A little secret, I grew up across the Hudson River.
Way back when, I could see the far away silhouette of the Statue of Liberty on a smogless day from our apartment window. Needless to say, I often catch myself wearing the mascot color of Manhattan... black.

So no surprise that I ended up making an Onyx gemstone bracelet (one with a little bit of a Southwester twist of course!)

Uh-Oh Polyvore

I admit it. I pop on Polyvore every once in awhile to play a little game I like to call... "If money were no obligation what would I wear?"

Today, this would be it. The colors are inspired by those gorgeous Amazonite gems I recently ordered from Turkey and the weather - caught somewhere between snow and spring.

And exactly how much would this darling little ensemble set someone back you might be wondering... only a whopping - $21,820. I know, I know, it is those gorgeous little Chrysoprase Drop Earrings from Barney's that put me over the top... hey, a girl can dream! I don't even think that I have ever paid that much for a car... C'est la vie.

Going All Gemstone

So, I am about to take the very big leap with my designs into gemstones!
I just purchased these beautiful faceted Amazonite stones from Turkey. I cannot wait to weave them. Aren't they the prettiest beads you have ever seen? I am over the moon about them.

Just For Me

This one I made with just me in mind. I listed it in my little hobby etsy shop, but might take it down for myself. I think it is the most original button that I have ever found. I know the button was made in Italy, but there is just something in the pattern that has me daydreaming of an adventure to Thailand, Morocco, or maybe Bali. I just started to reread Eat, Pray, Love last night. Travel Lit is my ultimate weakness. Shhh don't tell!

I really love these faceted summery citrus Jade beads.
