Here in south Louisiana, it is just starting to get cool. Since we love our summer dresses, it's easy to extend the wear for these dresses into the fall with a jacket - denim is always correct! Change the sandals for short boots and you are in business for the fall!
A lot of people want to know how long it takes me to make my jewelry - maybe you have had the same question. Since my jewelry is frequently complex, it's hard for you to imagine the time it must take to make it.
The question is a little hard to answer. The truth is that each piece can take days to weeks, depending on what other pieces I am working on at the same time and the complexity of the design.
I rarely work on just one piece, preferring to work on several pieces at the same time. That way, I get a break from each design and can go back and forth from earrings to bracelets to necklaces. That said, it's fair to say that the simplest pieces may take a couple of hours and the more complex pieces I may spend up to a month making and finishing.

I have been so excited about this new collection! It has been in the works for at least a year and it is specifically for those who would prefer a somewhat "daintier" look. You will recognize some original designs, made in a smaller format just for this collection, as well as some new designs. In the photo to the left, you will see, on top, the original "Persian" necklace - below, the same design in the "Little Luxuries" Collection. Several of the new jewelry designs, especially the earrings, have tiny gemstones added. If you look at the collection of new earrings, you will see the gemstones I am currently using including freshwater pearls, lapis lazuli, rose quartz (one of Pantone's two colors of the year this year) and amethyst.
This new jewelry collection is called Little Luxuries because of it is a petite version of original "Luxury" Collection. Each component is, as always, made in my studio in both a smaller size ring and a smaller diameter wire. The result is a wonderfully luxurious and dainty piece of jewelry, perfect for you or for gifting. You can see the entire collection, including the tiny earrings with gemstones, by going to the Little Luxuries Collection here.
