I’ve had some wonderful creative days where one piece after the other just kept coming out of me…what joy! I seem to have created several pieces in the same aesthetic or color scheme a couple of times. As you can see, black and cream has been a strong color combination. Please click on the photos to enlarge them for viewing…it makes a big difference in seeing the pieces as they are. Also, I found some wonderful vintage feel fabric ribbon on etsy that I enjoyed using in some earrings. Her shop is called sewlola and can be found at http://www.sewlola.etsy.com if you are interested in what she has to offer.

I collaborated with another etsy artisan on the “Lizzie” necklace. Lynn Davis created the wonderful heart-shaped pendant with the vintage image of a sweet girl. I just added a bit of the fabric ribbon that I hand frayed…I love to add that soft touch to my pieces. Lynn’s shop is http://www.LynnDavis.etsy.com

One more bit of exciting news is that some of my jewelry is now being carried at a trendy new resale shop in Osage Beach MO here at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you are ever in the area (a great vacation spot) please stop by FlipBack, near the outlet malls, and tell Shelly that Sara sent you!
