...the temperature rises to 24 degrees with a humidex of 30! It looks like swimming season might not be as over as I thought. To celebrate that now instead of the crispness of fall and all that, may I present some ocean-themed jewellery.
First up is a necklace called Pale Moonlight, featured at right. The pink and purple pearls are so cool and inviting. The centerpiece is a mermaid cameo set in a vintage brass setting with a backing of complimentary fabric. Beneath that, a long crystal teardrop hangs from more luminous pearls. Beautiful, unique, and limited.
Next we have another unique number called Golden Sands. This one is warm and elegant, draping nicely at about 20". This one also features a mermaid cameo, this time in a different brass setting. Bronze pearls, gold filled chain and a small asymmetrically placed toggle clasp make this necklace a one-of-a-kind.
So, what kind of weather will we have tomorrow?

Fall is upon us (in a few days, officially), and here in Ontario things are really cooling down. This summer was pretty fall-like itself, actually, but there were a few weeks in August that really made me think about swimming instead of long sleeved sweatshirts. Alas, those times are over, and now I get to think about things like Hallowe'en and that apple orchard I visited in Kindergarten. To celebrate, I've made some new stuff!
Behold above, the Autumn Apples necklace! It combines cherry quartz with freshwater pearls and lots of other things for a luxurious and distinctly fall look.
Presenting a cool counterpoint to the Autumn Apple necklace is the Night River necklace. Blue goldstone round beads lend the appearance of the night sky while fancy cut labradorite nuggets with plenty of flash remind one of tumbling gray waters. Plenty of other things help to make up the cool uniqueness of this necklace, from tiny garnets to dark pewter freshwater pearls.
So this is what fall will look like! More good news is that the more distinctly summer pieces in my store will soon be on sale, so if you've had your eye on something fun and colourful for a while, mosey on over and check out the sale section.
See you soon, and happy September =)
