Scenes from the Studio...

I'm sure some of you are wondering where I've been hiding the past few weeks--I've been in my studio, creating lots and lots of wedding designs, both custom orders and for the shop
Here is a a little peek at what I've been working on lately...
{Custom Lucienne Wedding Earrings}
{A Custom Wedding Set}
{Custom Henrietta Wedding Earrings}
{A Custom Alida Wedding Brooch}
{Work in Progress on my Desk}
{Custom Rosamund Wedding Earrings}
{Custom Floréal Wedding Earrings}
I'm finishing up the last of my wedding custom orders this weekend, and then I am taking some time to work on an fun little side project {more on that soon!} and to create some designs for my Fall/Winter collection. What exciting projects has everyone else been up to?

Fairy Tale Friday...{A Midsummer Night's Dream}

For this week's selections from the Fairy Tale Ornament Flickr group,
I was inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, especially this line from the play...

"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight..."

I tried to find photos that captured that enchanted atmosphere 
and were fit for the fairy queen Titania...

And some exciting news--
this week the Fairy Tale Ornament and Bohemian Embellishment flickr groups both reached 100 members! Thanks to everyone who has joined and submitted photos to the groups :)
Have a wonderful weekend!

My Creative Space...

...a week later than I had planned, I'm afraid! 
I ended up taking some time off last week to rest up and recuperate from the flu and didn't get to do my weekly creative space post as planned. Thank you for all of your sweet comments--I'm feeling better now and have been gradually getting back into the swing of things in the studio.
Today I've been working on a custom order for a bride...
She requested two pairs of earrings and a dainty bracelet all in soft shades of pink and rose. The set is halfway finished. I also have several other custom orders in the works, but I'm planning on taking a break from custom work soon so I can create some new designs for the shop!
