Hello again, my friends! Since I'm such a lame-o Etsy lister, I don't get terrific results with my little shop. It's my own fault, I know. Not to complain too much but I find that it's very difficult to find things, people, shops, on Etsy. Am I singing anyone else's song?
Anyway, I've finally added a few new things.
These puffy little glass hearts are like wearing a bit of mercury glass love, around your neck. I know that sounds corny but, seriously, these are so easy to wear. I had them in several colors and wanted to do something sort of simple but with lots of stones and a little sparkle for good measure.
Remember these lovely hessonite garnets from the gem show, last weekend?
I was anxious to use them and they went very nicely with my little orange heart. In fact, I was searching specifically for orange gems, at the show. I've been loving orange for a while, now.
Yay for me.
Pantone's spring 2013 fashion colors include..."nectarine". Hey...that's a fancy name for "orange," right?
And look at that "dusk blue." I adore all shades of blue. So here, I've got the dusk blue as well as the "grayed jade" with even a little bit of the "monaco blue."
Red = good.
Red is always good.
All of this was a happy accident as I didn't think to check the spring colors until after I'd made the pieces.
I used one of my precious pyrite drops for the second strand of this necklace. Those pyrite drops are a little difficult to find so they're a little difficult for me to part with. But, doesn't it look terrific with the glass heart? If you don't see this one in my Etsy shop, and you're interested in it, email me. I'll be listing it soon.
So...yes...there's more. A lot more. I just can't show it all to you, yet.
In the meantime, check out Pantone's site. If you love color (don't we all?) you'll love exploring, there.
