Colorful, Cheerful Summer Jewelry

I finally got around to adding some of the newest pieces to the Etsy shop – two colorful necklaces and a pair of playful earrings!  The photo shoot – especially the outdoor part of it – was so much fun to do, and I’m excited to share these with you 🙂

Links to each piece are included so you can check them out on Etsy!

Color Your World – Desert Sand

The latest bracelet-and-earring set up on Etsy features beautiful glass pearls in the desert sand color that’s the topic of today’s Color Your World challenge.  Why, even the background matches! 🙂

A Tropical Vacation (or at least its flowers!)

When I saw these polymer clay beads, I just couldn’t resist getting two strands – one in shades of pink and purple, and one in shades of blue and green.  Together, they remind me of a tropical garden.  The vibrant colors are a welcome contrast to the grey of winter 🙂

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Man-Made

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sense of Seeing

I’m always on the lookout for ways to use things that catch my eye – colors, textures, patterns – in my jewelry.  Lately I’ve been noticing a lot of zigzag patterns around me.  I think this pattern is perfectly lovely – it can take on a whole range of personalities depending on what colors and line thicknesses you choose, but somehow it never fails to cheer me up!

My latest bracelet-and-earrings set, now up on Etsy, is inspired by zigzags!  (Of course, the lovely blue-green color of those beads didn’t hurt either…)  Aren’t they simply stunning?

From Every Angle: Showcasing my Creations

Whenever I list a new piece of jewelry in the Etsy shop, I try to photograph the item from as many angles as possible – I want customers to not only know exactly what they’re buying, but also really get excited about their purchase!  Etsy allows a maximum of 5 photos per listing, and sometimes it’s a challenge to pick which shots will be the lucky five.  So I’m thrilled to get to share some of the “extras” with you.  These are some of my favorites from the most recent listings in the shop, a set of earrings and a matching memory wire bracelet.

Here are some of the images that ultimately made the cut:

And here are some of those that didn’t:

Green Grape Jewelry

I can’t help but think that the latest additions to the Etsy shop look like they were inspired by a bunch of green grapes!  That was not in fact the case – however, the bracelet and matching earrings are still pretty cool.  Take a look:
