Like A Kid In A Candy Store

One of my most favorite things to do is shop for jewelry supplies. Last week I went shopping for pearls and gemstones at the the gem and jewelry show and I've been in jewelry making mode ever since.

I found these adorable starfish pendants. 



I think combining these creatures of the sea (pearls and starfish) is the right thing to do.



This is the perfect little necklace to wear all summer long with t-shirts and sundresses. At only $35 each, they're an affordable and very classy gift for bridesmaids, teachers, or your mom.  It also looks great with a double strand of pearls.


Here are some of the other necklaces I've been working on and will be adding to my website soon.

Love that chinese crystal one - very cool.
I thought of you the other day. I was at an estate sale buying jewelry and they had a huge vintage starfish brooch with matching earrings. I'm sitting here with buckets of vintage chandelier parts designing some new stuff as well :)

Wonderful - especially love the rather vintage feeling one with the aurora borealis brooch.
