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?
Check out the bracelet on Etsy here, and the earrings here!
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:
I love to show sets together.
This zinnia is from a local farm – lovely, no?

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:
Can you even tell the difference? 😉
The jewelry (not the grapes 🙂 ) is available in the Etsy shop – head on over and take a look!
There are two sets of jewelry now up in the Etsy shop, each consisting of a chunky statement bracelet and matching pair of earrings! They’re available individually so you have the option of mixing and matching 😀 Here are a few pictures – for more information, head on over to the shop and take a look!
I was very excited to see this week’s prompt for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: the color teal or turquoise! Teal and turquoise are two of my favorite colors, and my bead stash has an – alarming, shall we say? – number of beads in those shades. I had great fun picking out some beads for a pair of turquoise earrings!
I can’t decide what theme these earrings best fit – they’d be perfect for a little kid who admires Elsa the Snow Queen or Ariel the Little Mermaid, but they’re elegant enough that I’d wear them myself! For more information, take a look at them in the shop here.
As I suspect many of us were, I was tempted to post an image of the dairy product as a response to this week’s Daily Post photo challenge. And since the temptation never truly went away, I’ll go ahead and get that out of my system:
However, thoughts of half and half (this time, the design concept, rather than the dairy product) also inspired these stylish earrings, which are perhaps a more exciting result:
They’re also available in the shop here – head on over and take a look!
