Lazy Days of Summer

With these last few days of summer upon us, everyone I know seems to either be on vacation or in 'lazy' mode... myself included!

The weather has been so gorgeous, I've just wanted to be outside and as a result, haven't gotten much jewelry made this week!

One thing I did manage to complete is this special order triple-wrap necklace. My sweet customer entrusted me with her own gorgeous cameos. Isn't the one with the diamond in the centre to die for?

The cameo segment can be detached if she prefers a simpler necklace one day.

I've also been dreaming up a new line that I plan to call 'parisian pearls', featuring vintage glass pearls. I love the combo of their creamy smoothness mixed with rough gemstones and old pendants, kind of a modern spin on the flapper necklaces of the 1920s.

Here are just some of the elements I plan to work with...

Please stay tuned for new pieces from my 'parisian pearls' line coming to The French Circus on Monday. In the meantime, you can find me under my parasol. Have a lazy weekend, mes amis! :)

  1. The cameo necklace for your client is beautiful !!
    Looking forward to seeing what you do with the glass pearls. The lazy, hazy, crazy days of Summer are so hot here this Summer that not many enjoy being outside. :(
