Pink Kisses on Grey Flannel...Treasury

Valerie of Mistflowerstudio has picked some of my vintage buttons (in my poorly neglected destash shop) for this pretty Treasury. I love the way this has been put together, just beautiful.

Wishlist Wednesday!

I'm jumping on this bandwagon, thanks to Carley of Vanilla Pixie for the inspiration! It's a lovely way to show off other peoples work and do some window shopping at the same time.

Spearmint Swirl - One of a kind ring by Incalesco
This is just so gorgeous, I adore green amethyst and this piece really appeals to me. I think it's a little too small a size for my fingers, though I'm going to keep Erika in mind for my next ring purchase....our 1st wedding anniversary is in August....hint hint Husband!

I've been looking for a little purse to carry around my business cards and return address label, something small i can grab for post office trips. This little cutie is right up my alley :)

Ever since I received my DUST craft swap gift print from Vanessa, I was hooked on this medium. I think I need to have this hanging in my study. Soon my sweets, soon.

Treasury! .......and..........exhale....

The gorgeous Natalia of RelisationCreations has included my Lady Grey pearls in this beautiful Treasury. The light to dark from one corner to the next is a splendid interpretation of that calming breath we should all take more time to practice.

I've gone pearl crazy!

...oh how I loooove pearls! I'm having a whole lot of fun creating with them this week. I've had a few custom orders for the market stall lately, so haven't had much time for the Etsy store. I stayed up late last night to make these so I could list them today:

Things that make me smile....

This week I've decided to feature a fellow jewellery artist, Shannon of Musette. I love her use of colour, shape and texture. There's also something very tactile about her photographs, I feel as though I could be holding the peices in my own hands just looking at them.
Shannons work is also featured here, she's donated a cute bangle for a givaway. If you're in the US or Canada, check it out!

Kyanite, I'm in love....

Deep teal Kyanite is just so stunning, I adore these stones! I found a small stash of these beauties and was tempted to keep them all for my personal collection...but reason won over my incessant need to hoard rocks, and I made 2 pairs of these beauties, one for me, the other for my Etsy shop, which sold the next day! The others are just begging to be wrapped, so I will have some more in the shop over the coming weeks. :)

Breath of Spring....

Ali of All About The Beads has made this stunning treasury inspired my my "Breathe" earrings, how sweet is that? I'm loving the cool tranquility of this one, grey and blue are just meant to be together!

Pearls, pearls and more pearls....

I've been on a pearl buying frenzy, I love the decadence that pearls imbue, especially when there are LOTS of them! Much to my delight, (and Husbands!), this luscious necklace sold the day after it was listed. The lovely Erin of Innerearthsoaps purchased these as a 50th birthday gift for her mum, how perfect!

Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere...
