Which earring style are you?

So what's your earring style...fancy, boho chic, ultra mod, romantic, or simple?

Thank you to the a great blog called The Handmade Gift Guide who featured my skinny black earrings under one of those styles...can you guess?

And if these aren't your style...lots more to choose from in my shop or on Etsy.

Butterflies and hibiscus....

This week is spring break for us (the first week of a 2-week break), so we decided to head up to the Butterfly Pavilion just north of Denver to check it out. It was nice to feel that 85 degree heat where they kept the butterflies!

I'm always amazed that the most brilliant patterns and colors I see are almost always straight from inspires me to start making more jewelry with pops of color.

Looking for a certain color to match a spring outfit? I have all my earrings divided in sections by color in my lime green modern shop. Thanks for looking!

Paint Square....

I love finding things on Etsy that I instantly must have...this is one of them!

This it a super cool abstract wood sculpture from paint square that is now sitting on my desk. Perfect for when I need some modern inspiration.

Love it!

Crochet art with a purpose....

Saw these crocheted flowers on a job-site fence in downtown Denver at Union Station.

The impressive thing is they were all along the entire fence, probably a block long. Definitely a nice way to spruce up an otherwise ugly fence.

Random art is good for the soul.

Secret inscription bracelet from Noah's Ark Creations....

You would think since I make jewelry that I may not be into jewelry from others...but that's the fun of Etsy. There are so many great shops with interesting unique items, so I can't help but support them! So fun to get something someone made and personalized just for you.

Being the minimalist that I am, I love the concept of a hidden inscription on this lovely copper bracelet from Noah's Ark Creations. I chose to have my kiddos names stamped on the inside.

Keona has different styles of fonts to choose from....I chose "tiny" and I love it! Such a super nice seller too.

If you love the personalized look of handstamped jewelry, then you should really check out her many beautiful choices from sterling to aluminum to copper and more.
