The Promise of Things to Come

Well, the snow is finally melting and there is hope for spring in New England. Goodbye winter! The best part of spring to me is the flowers. Of course I love any kind of flowers, real or otherwise. It's time to make some floral jewelry! So get out the tools and get going - here are some findings for inspiration :)

Totally Turquoise!

I'll admit, I cannot resist any stone, bead or glass that is turquoise. I just love it. I use it a lot in my jewelry designs and lampwork glass bead making. Since I live in jeans it's the perfect color. It also goes great with so many other colors, black, white, brown, red......the list goes on. It's got to be one got to be one of the most versatile colors going, with turquoise shades ranging from green to deep blue. It looks great in both modern and vintage designs. As a result, my ships have a vast selection of turquoise: Czech glass bell flower beads, Swarovski charms, cabochons and vintage beads. Come by and have a look - and then start designing with turquoise, you're going to love it!
