Holiday Showcase: 12/16/12 Moonstone Peacock Chandelier Earrings

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a peaceful Sunday today.
For today's holiday showcase I wanted to show you these lovelies...

I call these Moonstone Peacock Chandelier Earrings. During the holiday season lots of people go to holiday parties. And if I had to choose, which of my jewelry pieces I would most likely wear for the special occasion, it would most likely be these earrings.
Note: Don't worry! These are new, as in, I have never actually worn these... :)

Ok! So lets get into the details...

Holiday Showcase: 12/15/12 Luna-Black Crocheted Necklace with Frosted Crackled Quartz and Black Crystals

  Today I want to show you all a piece that I made a while ago. It's a crocheted necklace made of black cotton, accented with sparkly faceted black czech crystals, and it features something quite unique as a center piece. I call this necklace LUNA.

So why LUNA?
Well, first let me start with that center bead that I simply adore! What is it? Natural semi-precious stone-clear crackled quartz that has been given a frosted matte finish. I remember when I first stumbled upon this, while shopping for material, and I knew from the start that I had to use these in my jewelry!

Holiday Showcase 12/8/12: Green Fashion Bead and Peridot Crystal Earrings

Hello Lovelies!

  Yesterday I heard that Pantone, (who is responsible for forecasting color trends in fashion, interior design, makeup, and yes, jewelry!) had officially announced that the color of the year 2013 is....wait for it!.... Emerald Green!
  Which is great! Have always been fond of emerald, and knowing that next year (which is only a few weeks away- whoah!) this color will get some extra attention, I already have in mind to make a few pieces in ode to this color....stay tuned!
Tangerine Tango was this year's color of the year. Although the trends will be moving on, I certainly won't forget you oh tangerine! Haha, no really, why would I?
 Now for today's Holiday Showcase, I figured why not in honor of Pantone's announcement post a piece that's green?

Ok, so, these aren't exactly Emerald Green, but they are green!
So instead, this post will be just a "green" one.

Holiday Showcase: Magenta Ornament Earrings 12/2/12

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a peaceful Sunday.

   Now that it's officially December, some of us might already be starting to decorate our homes for the holidays. A few days before Thanksgiving, I've started to see Christmas tree vendors pop up in my area. Crazy right?
   I wasn't going to get one then, and probably will wait another week or so before I do (maybe two?).
However, decorating the Christmas tree is one of my favorite things during the holidays, hands down! Its just so much fun! Every year I try to decorate it differently. One year I went with a all-out silver theme with white lights, and last year I chose all the rich jewel-color ornaments that I had (I have alot of christmas tree ornaments- A TON!) with multi colored and white lights.

 Love to shop for ornaments, every year it seems I add a few to my collection.

Well, go figure, because I made a pair of earrings inspired by them. (!)

Available on Etsy.

 But I wonder, does this now mean I am obsessed with christmas tree ornaments? Haha. Just kidding!
