Finding peace & love in the garden with a heart necklace

Gardens are peaceful and hearts are for love. So being in this plant filled space with a heart necklace
should bring lots of peace and love. When life gets crazy and you need to taking a moment go outside.
If you can surround yourself with living plants, trees or flowers do it. Breathe it in. Calm down that
nervous system and make room for some love. My strong love necklace is bold and won't let you forget!

Behind the scenes with riveted metal heart jewelry

Sometimes my work space requires the fresh air outside. During this stage where my hearts are made
I used a sealant that needed to dry - on both sides. And how bout that "jewerly clothsline" of mine?!
I love it and my husband made it for me, being the clever guy that he is. Hanging on the line now are
actually several of my heart necklaces. Big and riveted, small and dainty and open hearts too.

Copper jewelry blends well with Fall Fashion

Copper metal with its brownish orange earth tones blends right in with all things Fall.  This set of three
cuff bracelets are warm and rich. Copper looks great with olive greens, mustard yellow sweaters,
chocolate brown jackets, anything black and always blue jeans and denim.
Copper jewerly feels like Mother Earth. 

Yes copper can react to humidity and in some people cause some greening on the skin. It washes right off
and is just part of the element of copper. also happens when females are on their period!

There are so many handsome stones and materials for creating men's jewerly. So when my friend Keith
was thinking about a blue, brown and black stone,bracelet. I wanted to make him something earthy.
Making his pieces were fun so what started out as one bracelet turned into a set of two.

Plus the bracelet stone bracelet is also an aromatherapy bracelet. There are so many wonderful
essential oils with soothing benefits . Everything from headache soothing peppermint to calming lavender.
If you want to add oil just add a drop or two the porous round black lava rock beads. Gently rub the oil in.

Depending how much oil you use the scent will last a few hours or days!

My niece Amelie was turning eleven. I wasn't sure what kind of jewelry gift  to make for my little
tuff stuff weight lifter. I am so proud of her skills and dedication. In my family everyone gets a jewelry
gift from me, of course.  After giving it some thought I knew what I wanted to make for her.
necklace that felt like a medal. A necklace that would make her feel loved and acknowledged.

Amelie's necklace is filled with personalized charms and a birthstone crystal. I'm already thinking
about more charms to add for the future. Whether you have a weight lifter or someone that you
can't find a gift for - a personalized anything is a good idea.

For the love of denim and heart hoop earrings

silver heart earrings with denim

Without a doubt two of my favorite things are denim and hearts. So heart hoop earrings were born.

Thinking back on that very first pair of jeans. Levi jeans. This was in the late 60's. I was with my
older sister . She was my idol. But those jeans! The were stiff as cardboard, deep and dark. Not like
my sisters that were soft and well worn. But patiently I waited, wored, washed and repeated...

I still love blue jeans and denim. And hearts are hard not to love. They are everything. No matter 
what material, style or design I will always love hearts. So the second I made these earrings
I thought how cute with denim;)

Big earrings with a scarf and ponytail

wearing pony tail scarf & big disc earrings

A scarf is an easy way to add a little something extra to an everyday casual pony. It only takes
a second to tye on and you get a lot of bang! Having your hair pulled back screams for a fun pair of
statement earrings as well. Wear this with a tee shirt and jeans on the weekend. Or wear it to work 
with a tailored suit for a more polished style. My big round disc earrings with a polk-a-dot scarf play nice.

So if you have a lot of scarves in your closet think about adding them to your hair!

At the beach dripping with a pink coral bracelet

pink gemstone bracelet on arm at beach

Since coral grows on reefs in the water, I took my bracelet for a walk by her original home - the Pacific
Ocean. It was long overdue. Our air pollution has been extremely unsafe with so many California wildfires. the winds changed direction. The air was felt and clean. A welcome if even brief reprieve.
With sunglasses and water, my flowered mask, and my Pinkberry bracelet it was time for a walk. (I should
mention that I have pink watershoes so grabbing my pink bracelet was no accident).

The Pinkberry is both a wrap bracelet and a necklace. It's like two for one, right?!
