Gearing Up

Bonjour, Blogland! With autumn in the air, I've been 'gearing' up, so to speak, for the busy shopping seasons ahead.

I made several pairs of earrings this week, including these Steampunk-inspired watch gears, and the 'firecrackers' below, which feature an explosion of vintage rhinestones and bronze crosses.

Sweet little baskets...

Wine and roses (and chains!)...

And how cool are these mother of pearl hearts?

Sorry, folks, this butterfly bracelet is already spoken for but I just had to show you anyway. ;)

I also managed to finish a few necklaces. This Paris-inspired piece incorporates an old souvenir bracelet and rose quartz. (One can never have too much Paris-themed jewelry, after all!)

I thought this enamel lyre pendant was so unusual when I spotted it at the local flea market recently. I purchased it from a British couple vacationing in San Francisco. Apparently they visit once a year, peddling their vintage wares as a means of funding their trip. Clever!

On another note, Blogspot warns that it will be converting to the new interface in a few days! Yikes! Wishing all of you other bloggers a smooth transition and if I don't make it back here you'll know why. (Kidding.) Have a beautiful weekend! :)


  1. Very Pretty! My supplies are put away for now, with other things going on.
    I dread the interface conversion - I may disappear also. :)
    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. love the lyre necklace and the little flower basket earrings made my heart skip a beat. Just wonderful!

    1. Thank you so much for the sweet compliments! It's always so much fun to find these unusual pieces at the flea market! :) Robyn
