Simply Pink

I love, love, love pink. I always have and I always will. I am the girlie girls of all time. :) This coming friday is Make Mine Pink Friday. Each friday there is a different themed shopping day. This fridays theme is Simply Pink, so I have been getting alot of new things done for this event. Its really inspired me, so I am posting this extra early. Its actually given me a new idea for my website too. Over the next couple weeks I am going to be changing the catagories around.

The first new necklace I am calling Maries Peony. I was at my friend Maries house in NYC a couple months ago and there was this amazing peony blooming in her back yard. It was huge and the most beautiful shade of pink I have ever seen. The pendant is a large peony and the necklace is strung with pearls and pink quartz beads. I came up with a pair of dragon fly earrings and these sweet lampwork teapot earrings. I love these new pink earwires I found. The last two things arent pink, but sometimes my hands just start making something before my brain catches up. I am calling this dragonfly necklace the Vinyards. There are small glass grapes and leaf charms and it is strung with very sparkly purples and deep greens. Last but not least are 3 rings that are made with gorgeous polymer clay roses that a friend of mine makes. Her name is Marie also. (Maybe the title of this post should have been "My friends named Marie" :) Marie is an amazing artist and a wonderful person. When you get a chance, visit her blog and see her work.

So, I have been busy, but I actually have more done that I just did not get photographed yet. Lots more coming. I finally feel inspired. Have a great week. I will be back in a couple days. I have a post for Christmas in July. Its 166 days until Christmas, if you want to know. (I have to say,,,I DONT)lol

Hi Gail,
Loe the new jewelry. It would be hard to pick a favorite, so I won't try. Glad the peony inspired you.
Have a great week.

Hi Girlfriend,

Beautiful work as always, and I absolutely love that peony necklace. If I was a jewelry person, I'd snatch that up in a heartbeat.....sadly as it is now, I'd never wear it and do it justice.
