Accessories Make the Outfit.

"Jewelry is very much a part of the woman wearing it. It expresses her personality and tells you a lot about her taste, her sense of fashion and feel for beauty. Choosing the right kind of jewelry is an art."

I came across this quote and could not agree more!!!  I just finished this bracelet and it came out great.  Pure glam!!! Love it.  Posting soon in my shop.

Chains, Crystal, and Glass Oh My!!!

Beading away on this chilly day and I just can't stop!!!  Lots of pieces in process and thinking up some more. But for now the fashion forecast has been saying....Chains, crystals, and more chains!!! This will be the look for this season to watch for.  Lots of big statement pieces, statement necklaces, bracelets, and rings, with  crystals and a luxurous look to indulge in for this fall/winter season, and up coming holiday season.  So put on the glitz and shine.  These pieces will be in heavy rotation for a couple of seasons and will be classic.  Statement pieces will be here for awhile so build up that jewelry wardrobe and create your look.  Things may be a little tighter in the pocketbook, but we women know how to make it work for fashion, even in the toughest of times.  So with these crystals, gemstone, pearls, and chains dress like heiress even if on a tight budget.

"Stones, metals, beads, massive chains and crystals are of great value for Autumn/Winter 2009-2010." -

So this is some of my fall stash, that I have been playing with for now, and in the days to come.  I have a few pieces to post soon, and I can't wait to create some more.  I love the look of crystals and rhinestones.  I am an avid collector and wearer of vintage costume jewelry, and alot of my inspiration will incorporate that mixed with some modern.  So check back soon, I will be posting more soon.

Looking at Fall in a different light...

I have a love and hate relationship with the fall.....I love the idea of a fresh new look and the layering of scarves and sweaters in cozy knits and textures.   Snuggling up under the covers and drinking hot cocoa.  The colors of the fall leaves and the anitcipation of the holidays,  but what I do not like is saying goodbye to my fun sun loving summer, basking in the suns rays and taking in the ocean breeze is what makes me happiest.  I dread the shorter days and even colder nights,  but without the colder season I guess would not appreciate the summer as much as I do.

Anyway this time around instead of staying in and being glum and down about not having the sun as much around,  I have my new venture of creating jewelry to keep me busy.  So far it has made this transition fun and inspiring.  All the new colors, and the way the sun casts a different glow in the sky and everything it touches, gets my creative juices flowing.  It gets me wanting to translate that into a new beautiful piece.

I am looking forward to playing and creating with all the chains, crystals, and pearls I purchased recently.  I was the cliche' "A kid in a candy store" with all of falls new opportunities for color and texture.  So here are just a few of my lastest goodies.  More to come soon, keep on checking back.  In the meantime for a closer look and more pics and pieces go to my store
