Not Enough Time

Being the OCD perfectionist that I am, I usually find myself pressed for time, trying accomplish so much (and perfectly, I might add!) in the same 24 hours that normal people have. Can anyone else relate to this?

This time of year proves worse than others since I'm also scurrying to get lots of jewelry made for both my Etsy shoppe as well as a local fund raiser / holiday crafts fair coming up in early December. (More details to follow when I have them!) I was up until the wee hours of the morning yesterday laying out lots of new designs, and I managed to get four items assembled today before time ran out! I'm looking forward to completing some others this weekend. Here's what I've been up to:

A beautiful royal blue glass rosary case is accented with marcasite and gemstones.

More royal blue... these briolettes and chains remind me of rain on a Paris night.

And since I recently sold out of all my cameo jewelry (for which I am humbly grateful), I thought it best to add a few more pieces back in since they never go out of style!

I love the contrast of these cool chalcedony drops against the warm gold.

One of my favourite necklaces yet, this one features five cameos of varying age and pedigree. Just goes to show you that these silhouette beauties transcend the decades.

What has everyone else been up to? Are you also busy planning for the holidays? I'd love to hear from you! :)


  1. What beautiful blues and bows! You're so creative with these materials, turning pretty into romance.

  2. Hi Robyn,

    I discovered your Etsy shop and have been peeking around your blog. Your creations are stunning! I have been neglecting my blog, but recently started posting again....too busy designing! Thank you for the inspiration!

    Stop by and say "hello" sometime. I'd love to have you!
