Hi and welcome to my blog. I look forward to your comments and suggestions!
I live in Vermont so of course I love to support Vermont and New England Artisans when I can. Often, you will see a blog here that does not pertain to jewelry and/or hats in any way. Somtimes my blog has nothing to do with Vermont in any way, but will be about a source, link or product that I really like.
Also, be sure and check out my "Links" page for lots of different things from Accessories to Wellness.
Grab and cup of tea, coffee or cocoa, sit back and have a look around, I hope you find something interesting and enjoy your time here!

Summer in Maine has arrived at long last! The sun is shining and the flowers are in bloom giving me just the inspiration I needed to create this piece.
For this necklace I used vintage and contemporary Lucite flowers, beautiful rich genuine pearls in 3 colors, filigree bead caps, large pieces of high quality Rose Quartz and vintage Lucite leaves. The clasp is by Swarovski and the entire piece measures 18.5 inches but can be made smaller with a sterling lobster claw clasp.
Both the base and the garden were woven by hand by yours truly. The leaves are made with seed beads, also each woven with care.
This is a wonderful summer piece of wearable art and as I do only one you will be the only one at the party wearing this beaded Summer Garden necklace.
