Red is considered a warm color on the color wheel. 
And with the Fall season underway and Winter just around
the corner you might want to consider warming up with my 
It's All Good Good necklace and my Color Me Happy bracelet.
They are both colorful and incude red beads and crystals. Like little
mini fireplaces around your neck and wrist! LOL. Beside

 living green for the environment and of course green jewlery

greens and teals are deliciously complimentary. 

Green is a secondary color, a combination of the two primary
colors blue and yellow. Secondary colors always match colors
that comprise them.You can easily wear this green jewlery with

Adventuring through Asheville, NC with an artisan necklace

wearing an artisan necklace in Asheville, NC

My sister and her husband spent Labor Day weekend in Asheville NC. It's one of their favorite places!
If you havne't been it's located in the BLue Ridge Mountains. The Downtown Art District is filled with
galleries and museums, and in the nearby River Arts District, former factory buildings house artists' studios.

So wearing one of my handcrafted necklaces seemed appropriate for their adventure. This necklace says
"Live Free" and they most certainly do!

My very first jewelry studio/work space

jewelry designer first studio

Yep thats it! This was back in 2003. It felt soooo good to have an actual "desk" to work from.
And real drawers for storing supplies - was wonderful. You gotta start somewhere!

That pooch under the desk was my helper, Jack.  Meaning he was busy chasing
every single bead that dropped on the floor. But he wasn't so keen about returning them. That photo of
me, not so good. But all I could find!

Since this was photo was taken I have upgraded my workspace many, many times! And I'm sure I will
continue many more. It is fun to look back and see how far you've come.

No matter the space my passion for creating a colorful life through jewelry and art lives on.

Feel free to browse all my jewelry categories to see what I've been up too!

Luxurious Fortnum & Mason truffles with Silver and gold jewelry

silver & gold jewelry with Fortnum & Mason truffles

When you are gifted truffles from Fortnum & Mason, an upscale 18th century department store
in London - you savor every bite and the box it came in!

My friend just flew back from London and surprised chocolate loving me with these goodies.
When I saw how beautiful the box and packaging were I decided I needed to dress for the
occasion:) 

So I opted for simple classic bracelets in gold and silver. I think they look just as luxurious 
as the truffle box.

Naturally I had to adorn my finger with a silver wrap ring to hold this delicacy!

I was gifted a variety of truffles and will be slowly working my way throught them.
If you need some pretty jewelry to wear with dinner or dessert you can shop my bracelets here.

The wrap ring is not yet available...but if you want to be the first to know when it is then
