What Inspires You?

This week I spent some time re-arranging and re-organizing my apartment and jewelry supplies, editing out things I no longer love and placing things that inpsire me in plain sight. It got me to thinking about aesthetic authenticity and what really gets my creative juices flowing...

pretty flowers,

my little niece Tilly in her tutu,

iconic imagery,

vintage rhinestones,

and Paris, mais oui!

Here are two new necklaces I created, inspired by some of my favourite materials and themes.

These are now available in The French Circus. Thank you for stopping by and won't you please tell me what inspires you? :)

Under Glass

This week I've had fun playing with old glass pendants. From mercury to goofus, religious to floral, I'm always drawn to attractive images sealed behind a protective bubble. Won't you have a look through this glass with me?

And this one is not glass, but I just had to throw her in because I think she's so pretty...

Please visit The French Circus for more photos and descriptions of these items. Here's wishing everyone a very Happy Memorial Day weekend! :)

Wedding Belles

With June and summer weddings around the corner, I wanted to offer a small collection this week that might appeal to a new bride, bridesmaid, mom, or anyone with a particular affinity for creamy white and rhinestones. Featuring genuine pearls, Art Deco paste, Victorian cameos, vintage mother of pearl and a heavy dose of romance, these pieces are fresh and tasteful for any occasion - whether you're wearing a wedding gown or jeans!

Please visit The French Circus for more photos and details about these belle treasures. Merci beaucoup for stopping by! :)

Dreaming in Amber

Inspired by last weekend's flea market finds, I've been dreaming in shades of amber...

Cameos, vintage honey-gold crystal beads and antique watch chains are complemented by cool silver, rhinestones and mother of pearl.

All of these new designs and more are available at The French Circus. Thank you for stopping by. :)
