Flights of Fancy

Hello, blog friends! Is everybody's summer off to a good start? I've been doing a lot of shopping, stocking up for a week's vacation coming up in early July. It's actually going to be a staycation for me this year, and I plan to work on jewelry, jewelry, and more jewelry! I've been giving in to my own flights of fancy with purchases from very old Catholic relics to chunky baroque pearls.

Yesterday I took full advantage of a gem show that came through my area, indulging in garnet briolettes,

citrine nuggets,

sleeping beauty turquoise,

more garnets (a girl can never have too many),

and clear blue quartz.

I've also been working on a few 'flights of fancy' for you to enjoy, now available in The French Circus. These earrings are so lightweight and perfect for summer with their aqua apatite drops.

And a couple of new necklaces feature Catholic imagery such as an old pocket shrine with a tiny Infant of Prague inside.

This mother of pearl beauty includes a sterling silver crown, birds, and a vintage medal from Lourdes.

I hope you will give into your own flights of fancy this week! Enjoy! :)
