Not For Sale

I finished my Mother of the Bride jewelry I'm going to wear at my daughters wedding in August.
I decided on pearls for my neck since I've always told my daughter "I am the Queen and this is my Universe".  I figured if they're good enough for British royalty, they are good enough for the Queen of my Universe . LOL

Once I completed the necklace, I had to make earrings to go with it and my pearl clusters were born.

My bracelet is totally whimsical and fun with lots of color, sparkle and splash.

Mother of the Bride bracelet

I'm going to be the Mother of the Bride in August.
I have my dress - it's lavender with a silver shimmer -  it's knee length and it has rows of ruffles below an empire waist.
so it has a romantic look to it.
I created this bracelet just for this dress.  G doesn't like it.  He thinks I should wear pearls or something like that.  He said it looks cheap. :(

I love the splash of color and sparkle.  I put lots of Swarovski crystals on it.  With all the time and effort and crystals I put into this, I would have to sell it for at least $60.
that's not cheap.  I think the resin rose in the middle is throwing him off balance.

I love the ruffle around the edge.  On the day of the wedding, I'll decide whether to go ahead and wear it or just throw on a pearl bracelet instead.

Well, here it is anyway....

Star Struck Patriotic Earrings

I made myself patriotic earrings for this years 4th of July.
It was easy-peasy and fun.  The stars a lightweight base metal and make a pretty jingle as they bounce against each other when I shake my head.
 I like the pattern so much I've decided to make a matching bracelet :)


A Thousand Words

I love this photo.  I think I've shown it before.  I didn't take it, don't know who did, but a picture says a thousand words.

Blooming time

I took this picture before the hard rains, wind storm and hail hit us.
It's one of my favorite houses in our neighborhood.  I hope they don't mind me putting their home on display.

Wouldn't it be something if everyone house was this colorful!!!
