Fairy Tale Friday...{Silvery}

I've been inspired lately by soft, silvery shades of grey and touches of crystal and off-white,
 so for this week's selections from the Fairy Tale Ornament Flickr Group
I chose photos that captured this whisper-soft color palette...
You can visit the group here to see more fairy tale-inspired photos, or to post your own!
And tying in with this color scheme is a new pair of earrings that I just finished 
{you could just see a glimpse of them in this week's Creative Space post...}
They're part of a wedding "parure" or matched set of jewelry--I'll be listing the bracelet and necklace in my Etsy shop very soon :)
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

My Creative Space...

Eye candy! 
I just love it when a package of new stones arrives in the mail...
These just came and I'm so happy with how vibrant the colors are. 
I'll gradually be working them into designs for my Fall/Holiday collection,
 as well as a custom order or two...
And here's another sneak peek into my studio today...
I just finished up these pieces of jewelry this afternoon,
 and they will be making their way into my Etsy shop shortly...

My Creative Space...

Today I've been putting the finishing touches on these two new designs...
They're part of my wedding collection, and I think they would look rather pretty worn together :) 
The earrings are really a departure for me, as they are very tiny and are attached to sterling silver post earrings. I am really excited about how they turned out--this technique opens up a whole world of design possibilities and are perfect for women who like smaller, daintier earrings. They'll be available in my Etsy Shop in the next day or so...
I've also been working on another project which I'll just give a sneak preview of today...
Expect to see the finished product in the next day or so
 {and no, it isn't jewelry!}
On Monday, my husband and I took a road trip to visit the Shelburne Museum, which has a wonderful collection of antique quilts and other folk and decorative arts--I took tons of photos and will post some of them soon...

Fairy Tale Friday...{Mermaid's Treasure}

For this week's Fairy Tale Friday I selected photos that look like they might have come from a mermaid's jewelry box--
all watery shades of blues and sea greens, with a hint of purple...

My Creative Space...

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
Today I've been taking a break from custom orders and 
working on some new designs for my Etsy shop...
This is the beginnings of a necklace pendant--the white on white was a bit tricky to photograph, but it has a little bouquet of lace flowers, embellished with pearls and rainbow moonstones. I'm also working with some pretty faceted rock crystals for a bit of sparkle... I hope to have some other designs in the shop soon :)
And a few days ago I finished up these custom earrings which you might recognize from last week's Creative Space post...
