Lime Squared

Why is it that so many people do not like lime green?? It is suppossed to be the least universally liked color. I try to make people change their minds with my unique take on the shade and show off the clean beauty of lime.

I have so many ideas of things I would like to create and new techniques I would like to learn but only so many hours in the day. Last Saturday I spent the entire day walking around the garment district in the city getting inspired by all the cool fabric and gemstone stores.

Etsy Rocks!

I love my new online store at Etsy. There is an awesome community of fine Artists and Artisans to swap tips with, and joke around with. I know that if I am bored, I can log on to Etsy and strike a conversaton with anybody about anything crafty. My style of the day are these ethereal amethyst earrings. Briolettes of about a carat each on sterling silver wire. The imperfection on the stones adds adds to the charm of the earrings. Although jewelry is obviously personal adornment, it comes from nature and I love to photograph my jewelry in nature because I think the sun shows the stones off at their best.

Trendy Basics

I love making so many different types of jewelry it is sometimes difficult for me to decide what I want to make. New ideas are constantly floating around in my head. The biggest problem is that I only have two hands! I try to make pieces that are elegant, but that also have a detail that makes the piece interesting and provides a clue to the personality of the woman wearing the jewelry. My newest necklace and earring set, Catalina, is a cool double strand necklace with lapis lazuli chips and lemon chrysoprase smooth coins. I cannot decide if the lemon chrysoprase looks more lemon or more lime. The chrysoprase adds an interesting dimension to the necklace because the color is unexpected. Unexpected color is cool.
