This piece was a joy to design!  The vintage bits that make up this one-of-a-kind charm bracelet have sentimental value and hold a memory or two of special people in my life.  A number of the vintage beads came from my aunt and grandmother.  They love to give me bits and pieces to remake into new designs.  Anyway, this bracelet is one of my favourites for it's bright colours and unusual components.  I can't make another just like it. 

You'll find this piece along with my other jewelry at the Perth County Welcome Centre and Artisan Market in Shakespeare, ON.  Hope you have a chance to visit.  (They also sell Mapletons Organic Ice Cream, in case you're interested!)

Spring Flowers

This May long weekend, my husband and I did some planting and a whole lot of weed-pulling.  I detest pulling weeds.  The only thing that remotely makes it worthwhile is to see my beautiful flowers blooming.  Still, maintenance-free gardening is the way to go!  I was inspired to create this whimsical piece using lucite flowers and leaves.  It's fun and totally girly.  I think, given the amazing weather we've had, it's the perfect accessory for the season!

What the Shell?!

Most of you who are familiar with my work know that I'm a big fan of natural materials - shell being one of my most favourite.  Shell is super versatile, as it comes in a tonne of colours and shapes.  I love the bright, albeit dyed, tones of mussel shell.  You can find these coin-shaped shells in just about every colour.  The bright hues remind me of a breezy day at the beach, frolicking in the sand... 

Anyway, below is a necklace created with mussel shell, glass pearls, faceted glass beads, and rose quartz.  The bracelet is just one chunky pop of colour - I think of mermaids when I look at it!  These pieces can all be purchased at Cynthia Weber Interiors.
