Ok, I must admit I have a new obsession that has nothing to do with the ocean or the beach....shhh...it's Dragonflies. I don't think you will find any dragonflies there. I've had this Hill Tribe pendant for awhile now, waiting for inspiration to strike. Well....you can see, my muse struck yesterday and this is the result. I mixed Kyanite gemstones ( the green/blue stones in oval and rounds) with stick pearls and erinite colored Swarovski's (one of my fav colors). The 3rd photo is the bracelet to go with it. I love the cute little sterling dragonfly charm. They should be available in my Etsy shop later today.
Here are some more dragonflies for your viewing pleasure.... The Glass Dragonfly was created by my very talented glass artist friend Jill. The second sterling silver filigree dragonfly was hand cast by Horace, another talented friend of mine...it's so great to have talented friends...makes my work designing easy!
I grew up in Wisconsin and vowed to move closer to the ocean when I graduated from College. I wanted to be a Marine Biologist. I spent a summer in Biloxi, MS taking classes before I graduated and decided to move back.
I've always enjoyed working with my hands. I've enjoyed needle work, mosaics, photography and ceramics. I started making jewelry 6 years ago and have never looked back. I love creating something beautiful that reflects a bit of myself that the wearer can relate to. My pieces are inspired by a day at the beach, the wind and salt grazing your face, the sun on your shoulders, the sand between your toes and the pina colada in your hand.
My jewelry shows my love and appreciation of the ocean. It's funky and fun with beach attitude.
