How is everyone's week going? Many of my internet friends have been experiencing snow storms this week, and even our weather in California has turned very cold. To combat the winter humdrums, I've been keeping cozy indoors on my days off from work to 'play' in the studio. A new batch of gemstones which just arrived from India has also helped to keep the creative juices flowing. :)
This necklace features ocean-blue flourite stones and a finger rosary relic pendant. I added an image cut from a vintage prayer card and some old lace to the interior.
I love these oxidized cross pendants and paired this one with Art Deco findings, lemon zircon and tiger's eye.
Inspired by the Edwardian-era necklaces I've been spying on the PBS series Downton Abbey, this necklace reminds me of the passage of time, with its drops of floral vine, vintage watch faces and Victorian mourning pendant.
Finally, this sweet necklace puts me in the mood for a nautical vacation. Who couldn't use a little 'resort' wear right about now?
All of these pieces are currently available in my Etsy shoppe. Please let me know how you're dealing with the cold winter weather. :)
