i am me, what more would you like


any way here is some stuff.

here is a mushroom necklace that i planned to build a long time ago and surprisingly it took no effort at all to find the strap, which is faux suede. A silver lobster clasp and extension chain. It was all in the timing. (note: none of my mushroom necklaces are available on my etsy yet, along with more photos. but if i get demand for any of them maybe i'll move a little more quicker, lol)

Here is another mushroom necklace, this one made of glass. A translucent blue mushroom sits inside a drop of solid glass forever preserved. Hung on a silver plated chain.

This necklace is all about bicycle love. if you got it (we all got it) you have to have this cute necklace. made of brass

and, these earrings are quite special. These are vintage Lucite violet iris flowers, hung by a sterling silver chain that is very thin and delicate. Simple and beautiful.

east coast road trip brings enlightenment

So over the last couple of days me and Chris drove up to New York, enjoyed the city in a constant drizzle, ate wonderful foods and drove on back home to orlando. The trip was great and it was quite an experience trying to figure out the subway system. Didn't get much shopping done due to the watery weather by that is totally fine considering the bill this trip ran up already. Ever since we've left I've been daydreaming of the day we pack up and move to the city, were I think we would fit in quite nicely. maybe another year....

On our way back from new york city, we made a detour through St. Augustine. Chris had never seen St. Augustine and the last time I visited there was when I was in the 5th grade. Everything about the place was the same as I remembered. Sunny and old. We saw the castillo de san marcos fort and walked shortly through the tiny shops. We strolled long enough for me to find an adorable little bead shop. It was the about the size of a closet. It was a treasure trove thought because I found some very interesting things (like these beautiful Buddha beads) ...

I've brought brass in yellows, grays and patinas, and other objects and jewels together to create a Buddha inspired collection of jewelry. When my things are photographed nicely, they will be presented here shortly.
