Sneak Peak {Rose Garden Necklace}

This is a necklace I created using a vintage earring as the focal point. It is probably from the 1950's.

The long bead (shown at top of picture) is over 20 years old.

The necklace can be adjusted to be worn short or long. The chain, clasp, and goldtone flower bead are all new. I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak and will be adding this necklace to my site soon!

A photo re-take!

I am loving my new camera! I took photos again, of this ring I have for sale at etsy, and I can tell the difference a new camera makes. I also added a more interesting background that I think compliments the rings. Let me know what you think!
{To view the old photos before I change them go to my etsy shop here or my website.}

Count your blessings!

I found a link I wanted to share with everyone! I needed to create a new header for my blog, etc, and happened upon the Counting Your Blessings blog. Time is always short these days and I knew I wouldn't have time to take my own pics to create a new header for my blog and online shops. But then I found Polly's blog and it really was a God send! Not only is it inspirational and the pics are beautiful but she also offers free blog headers that can be customized by the user!

This was exactly what I needed so I immediately emailed to make sure I could use her headers for my online shops like etsy, etc. Polly was most gracious and I am so glad to have found her beautiful photos. My blog header (above) was created using her photography! She also has pre-made free etsy banners that you can find here. If you use one of her freebies drop me a line and let me know!
