{ inspiration in new places }

Recently I have been creating so many pieces that are so different in style. While I strive to keep my inspiration rooted in nature I sometimes can't resist creating pieces that make a bold statement! I also can't resist turning to other interests of mine to find inspiration. The jewelry below was created with the help of Aunties Beads and their blogging program. They have a great selection of beads, gemstone beads, crystals, findings and tools.
This unique piece is made with an acrylic amber colored bead, gold plated textured chain, brass chain, quartz, a swarovski crystal pearl and vintage charms.

I have an affection for a great city.

I feel safe in the neighborhood of man,

and enjoy the sweet security of the streets.

{ let's get creative }

With summer slowly rolling around, there is no better time to get creative! I love to feel the warm summer breeze creep through my windows as I work away on jewelry and other creative adventures. I am continuing with my organic theme of creating modern pieces that are inspired by nature. Below are a few samples of new ideas......I would love to hear your thoughts!
I couldn't have created these pieces without ArtBeads and their great website.
