In case you don’t know yet, I started making jewelry simply to match my outfits. While I can always find cute earrings when shopping about, they do not always compliment my outfits as I wished they might. Wha la.. unique jewelry that goes perfectly with my coat, dress, shirt, etc..
It’s fun to make my every day special. It’s my way of pampering myself. When was the last time you pampered yourself?
I created several pairs of earrings this week. I wanted just the right pair of earrings to go with a new blue sweater (that looks a lot like this), so I made a few pair to match.
Then as I was paging through one of my favorite catalogs, I spied some items I should have and made matching jewelry sets..
In other news, a gallery in Naples, Florida is featuring my jewelry!
I love the look of winter and how clean and beautiful the landscape is early in the season. Everything is white, pure, and fresh. For sure you don’t need to think about how you’ll keep warm unless you choose such a venue as (the above).
Your first priority and thoughts are of course to yourself and the groom and how you’ll treasure the moment of your vows. But what about the freezing guests?
I found this little blog on winter weddings that I really likes.. practical tips here along with a surefire way to please guests: outdoor heaters.
In the blog there is the idea of providing a take-away stole for all the guests though this is a little extravagant. For special guests, providing something sweet and nice that can be worn again would be a nice little treat. I found these great little felted wool beads that I’ve used like this:
They’re fun, colorful, and warm.
I wanted to create a piece that makes you feel relaxed yet giddy, at peace yet excited.. I wanted to work with colors to evoke these feelings yet be a wearable piece that is casual or elegantly displayed.
I took a walk near my home like I always do yet could hardly keep my eyes focused ahead as the changing light and fall colors created a warm glow and amused my eyes with various shades of a turning season.
When I came home, I started beading.. and here it is..
I call it, Fall in Love using colors of my favorite season. I just finished matching earrings too:
