June Creations

I don't know about you, but I often have ideas in my head for weeks before I finally get a chance to sit down and experiment with them.  I have found that when I already have the idea in my head the designing goes very quickly.  Sometimes I like it and it is just what I wanted to make, and other times it isn't what I had in mind at all and it may be an idea that just isn't going to work.  But it's the process that I love most of all - from idea to completed design including packaging.  I love the organic process of creating and where it takes me.  Sometimes I had no idea I was going to end up where I did - one thing just leads to another.

New Briolette Colors

I wear these Swarovski Briolettes constantly and I recently added a couple of new colors - A deep blue with a purple accent and a Pink/Gold Combo - the Olivine are also back in stock.  People comment on my earrings all the time - they really are stunning the way the colors sparkle and change in the light.  Happy Summer!
