Sweetness upon Sweetness

UPDATE: Reserves are pending on several items, please feel free to inquire on all pieces - as soon as the reserve is confirmed I will mark each piece as

Over the past few months, I have been working on a super limited schedule, eking out a few hours a day in the studio, weekends included.

I've been creating rhythmically, methodically, beautifully,
planning pieces in batches to complement each others' designs and feel.

With this week's batch of dolce de leche sweet necklaces,
I wanted to inermingle vibrant color and the imprint of wings,
things that lift and inspire.


This first necklace is a rare and special completely natural purple Coyamito Agate with a covered drusy center, partnered on either side by organically shaped and falling amethysts,
arranged to form a monochrome rainbow from dark to light.

Shining, sweet and ever-so-royal!



Second, a dragonfly wing with an unidentified green stone, perfectly gemmy and luminous.

Rich in warmth and depth.



Third, a minty perfect chrysoprase feather imprint necklace!

Lord have mercy, this color just simply cannot be outshone: it is
so healing, so kind.


Fourth, a perfect cicada wing in copper with sterling buffeting everyplace it touches your skin!

It's so lightweight and lovely...

And here is the secret to its lift!


Last of the quintet, an antique forget-me-not round in sterling

hammered edges

And a lot of soul in its bones still, after a century or so of
traipsing about the world.

All of these pieces are available for reserve

with a simple

over in yonder Metal Shop.

I hope one speaks to you in color or design,
a sweet something to bring warmth to your autumn.

Liz: slow and steady, as they say - it's amazing how focused and diligent a body gets when the hours spent are needed, like a medicine: my time in the studio since July has been a salve. Thank goodness :) Muah!

Cat: Why yes it might be, my delicious chica: you know, I owe you a letter and it's going to be soon :) xoxoxo
