W just got through a week of early winter here in Northwestern New Jersey. An early snow kept us without power for 48 hours, the longest for me in my lifetime. I did not do as well as my husband. We did get through it and were luckier than many other people. Hopefully everyone has power by now. I was looking at pictures of my recent listings and realized that WINTER WHITE is the color of the week.! All these items are currently in my Etsy Shop.

We had a very bad storm here over the weekend and we lost power for a couple of days. I could hardly wait for the power and heat to come back on to get into my studio and start creating again!

Necklace in Muted Shades
This piece can be worn as a necklace or a belt!
Necklace in VIBRANT colors!
One of my favorite stops on our trip was to Istanbul, Turkey. Here we strolled the Istanbul and saw many shops and small eateries. The Grand Bazaar was closed as it was Sunday but I was a lucky girl to find these BEAUTIFUL necklaces. As we were walking I saw a door dripping in crochet of all colors and shapes. As we entered the store it was filled with so many necklaces, earrings and braclelets, such lovely things. I knew I would buy something but it was sooooo hard to choose as I wanted everything. Here we met the Dad and his daughter who were so nice. The daughter, Funda, designs and makes all the jewelry. The 3 pieces pictures here are the ones I choose, and I wanted more, but purchased only three. The crochet work is so fine and perfect, I believe this is still called OYA lace even if crocheted. I wish I had bough at least one traditional OYA piece but maybe this means I will be back for more!

We are back from our trip to the Medeterrain 12 day cruise on the Ruby Princess. This trip was a Whitman Sampler as there was so much to do and not enough time to do it all. I guess we will have to go back! Our trip included Monaco, Italy, Greece and Turkey. Every port was wonderful, the weather was perfect and the ship was stunning. Took nearly 500 pictures and put them into a Shutterfly album which turned out great and very nice keepsake. Back to reality and we hope we can do another trip very soon.

It's been awhile since I have made some new things. The past couple of days I have made some pretty earrings for Spring and Summer. I am posting a few of my new creations which I have listed in my Etsy Shop. Swarovski and Vintage are my favorites plus I can't stop from using pretty resin flowers. Soon I need to start making things for Christmas!

I had to make these! I have had all the parts for sometime but had not taken the time to make them. They turned out really cute and remind of the Summer season! They can be found in my Etsy Shop!
I have decided to downsize my stash of jewelry making supplies. It will be a big undertaking to get things posted to Artfire but it is something that needs to be done. I started today and hope to continue for the next the several weeks. So if you need or like jewlery supplies take a peek and you might see something you like or need.

Beads by Blanche which is my very favorite bead store. Blanche and Wendy (the color maven) are ALWAYS friendly and so helpful, love them both. The class project was taught by Melissa Grakowsky a very talented designer. The project was a challenge for me but fun. I did not finish the necklace during class but I did work on it for several days at home. This necklace caught my eye because of the beaded rose and lace. I LOVE flowers. So I am showing off my finished piece which I am looking forward to wearing soon!
