My latest Etsy treasury is inspired by this warm March afternoon! The collection features handmade and vintage items in soft shades of yellow and gold. Have you ventured out into the spring sunshine today?
The centerpiece of this collection is the beautiful Gracie wrap dress from Diane von Furstenberg. I absolutely adore it! Its black, white, and blue colorblock design and simple shape make it easy to accessorize. As you can see, I had a hard time choosing just one look, so I threw in many options! Paired with low Cole Haan sandals and a white pebbled leather Proenza Schouler backpack, this dress is perfect for a day trip into the city or for exploring an outdoor market. Navy blue Gianvito Rossi suede pumps and a Cerno crocodile leather bag amp up the style for a polished, professional look. Even my very own sapphire crystal and sterling silver fitted bracelet is amazing with this dress! I hope that you enjoy this collection just as much as I do!

This handmade chandelier necklace is one of a kind! It was born out of an abundance of lampwork glass beads and a spark of creativity :)
Four 10 x 5 mm cobalt blue borosilicate glass beads form a dramatic pendant with accents of Swarovski crystal and sterling silver. The 4 mm crystals glimmer in a light sapphire satin color that beautifully complements the boro beads.
The pendant measures approximately 43 mm (1 5/8″) from the top of the sterling silver circle to the bottom of the longest sterling silver headpin. It hangs from a 1.4 mm sterling silver double rope chain with a sterling silver spring ring clasp.
The lampwork beads are also handmade, though not by me :)
I loved designing this pendant because the lampwork beads are just beautiful. They have great depth and amazing color. Anyone who likes blue will undoubtedly be drawn to them. Visit my Etsy shop to learn more about this necklace today!
This collection speaks to the modern cowgirl in each of us :) It features leather, denim, turquoise, and silver items with a sexy, kick ass vibe.

Another new listing!
I’ve been trying (and hopefully succeeding!) to rev up my Etsy shop these past few weeks with new listings, updated photos, better descriptions, anything that will make my creations stand out in a sea of beautiful jewelry. What do you think of my latest item?
This elegant collar necklace is perfect for a formal occasion or special event. I call it my “blizzard baby” in honor of its wintry color scheme and the wild snowstorm that raged outside during its construction!
Bold black 10 x 10 mm Swarovski crystal stairway beads are the focal points of this piece. The stairway beads are accented by grey and clear Swarovski crystal bicones and sterling silver spacers. Additional sterling silver beads and components complete the piece. This multi strand necklace includes a sterling silver chain extender for adjusting its length from 16″ – 18″. It closes with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp.
The classic black, white, and grey color scheme of this bib necklace coordinates easily with any outfit. Wear it to a wedding, an anniversary party, a holiday function, anywhere you like. No matter the season or the occasion, you will feel extra special with two strands of sterling silver and crystal sparkling delicately at your neck.
Even at its shortest length, this necklace is comfortable to wear. Its two strands of beads lay flat against the skin and move easily with you. With its multitude of crystals, this necklace does have some weight. It is recommended to wear this piece at or just above the collarbone.

Check out the new items I added to my Etsy shop on Friday! These two pairs of earrings are perfect for the confident and modern woman. The large Swarovski crystal sun pendants glitter beautifully in rich shades of blue and green or purple and blue. I love the simple shape of the sun pendants because it doesn’t distract from the saturated colors and serious sparkle that will catch everyone’s eye! The pendants are attached to sterling silver fishhook earwires using antiqued sterling silver ice pick bails. Visit my Etsy shop today to learn more about these lovely earrings!
