Sometimes I make pieces that provide me with a strange sense of happiness. It could be for any number of reasons, challenging issues resolved, making a customer wildly happy, a stone that I’m really excited about, etc... This piece gives me that joy. The color inspiration came from a placemat. Yep. A placemat. It was the perfect mix of fallish colors, without actually being autumnal. They are the colors of fall before the weather turns too cool. Before the sun hides more in the clouds rather than shining through the orange spotted trees. When the sky in its glassy blue deceives you into thinking flip flops will be fine. Holding that thought as I turn the heat on in my office. ☀️🍃🍁
Did I ever tell you how much I dislike birds? Yeah, it’s true. I mean, I like birds singing, I can appreciate their beauty, but on the whole of the animal kingdom, just not a fan. I have one exception. The Peacock. And, like many things in nature I am inspired by their colors, and often use them in my work. Take this piece for instance. Black labradorite, vesuvianite, amethyst. Even the shapes are reminiscent of the shapes found on their feathers. #peacockinspired#natureinspired#handcraftedjewelry#daisychainsjewelry#newwork
Australian boulder opals set off by small Thai silver beads. Simple, feminine, lightweight, & in a color that will go with everything in that closet. (Oh, and of course match our Anemone Necklace and Caged Boulder Opal Bracelet! Ha!) You can find these on the website.
I cannot express how much I love this color combo. Deep blue apatite just ‘works’ with that boulder opal. I wire-wrapped this piece because I adore the light/dark contrast of the oxidized wire next to the stones. It’s adjustable. ☀️ available on my website.
Look who we found hanging out in our back yard! Nice way to perk up a relatively dreary day. Admittedly it’s been a slow start to my week. Recovering from the craziness endured last week, on top of travel and a show. That said, my heart couldn’t be more full! I absolutely love connecting with you! Seeing you at shows, catching up on your lives (two of you are having babies since I last saw you!! Wow!) from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your love and support this summer. You really are the icing on the cake, and I could not do this (nor would I want to) without you. 😘 Susan . . #bestjobever#artisanjewelry#thankfulforyou#natureinspired#michiganmade#daisychainsjewelry#madisonindiana #
