I was recently gifted with this precious little handmade copper enameled bowl - I love using it to store just one little pair of earrings. Sometimes smaller is better! The bowl was made by Louise Coulson of www.KingfisherDesignsMetals.com.

A painting by one of my favorite painters in Louisiana! When so many Louisiana painters are painting scenes from New Orleans, Lauren (https://www.etsy.com/shop/LaurenJHClark) paints what she knows - the sugar cane fields, homes and churches around her hometown of Lakeland, Louisiana.
I have used this painting as a backdrop before - click here if you want another look!

Nice earring holder, don't you think? This beautiful porcelain vase was made by Rocky Broome of www.rockyspots.com. Most of her pottery is hand painted but I love this white "sea urchin" vase! I love Rocky's work - go check it out when you have a minute!
I like using this vase to hold earrings - every time I reach for the earrings, I enjoy the vase all over again.

You might be familiar with one of my favorite collections, the Daisy Chain (AKA Clover Chain) Collection - you can see photos below of the jewelry (or go here to see the bracelet in my online store or here to see the short silver daisy chain earrings online).
This little clover flower was the inspiration for this collection. In some parts of the country, kids made daisy chains or dandelion chains & used them as necklaces, bracelets or crowns but where I grew up, in Arkansas, it was clover chains all day long, every carefree summer day!

Wow! These silver earrings are supersized!

Today is our anniversary - 30+ years ago today, we got married in a quiet ceremony in Bar Harbor, Maine, of all places! We were both transplants to Louisiana (he from Tennessee and me from Arkansas) and decided to get married then decided (on a lark, really) to take a trip to Maine and get married while we were there. Seems kind of crazy looking back on it but it has all worked out for us!
In honor of all sorts of anniversaries and celebrations, I wanted to share these dramatic black and gold earrings. I love freshwater pearls of all sizes and I think these little oval ones set off the gold and black in the earrings perfectly!
They are available in my online store, so click here if you want to see details & shop!

Last week I was on vacation in my home state of Arkansas, doing a little rockhounding for crystals in Hot Springs, visiting with family, eating barbeque and lots of other fun things.
I needed a few photos of my jewelry on real people so I grabbed one of my sister-in-laws (sisters-in-law?) and asked if I could take a few photos of her wearing a couple of pairs of my earrings. She was happy to oblige!
(The reason for doing this was that earrings are EXTREMELY hard to get good photos on my own ears.....extremely.)

I have recently made a series of 4 or 5 different sizes of these sterling silver square earrings and these are the smallest - so, technically, they are "extra small". As I looked at them when I took this picture I saw that, honestly, they are not THAT small. Relatively small, yes. Afterall the largest ones are 6" around so those are pretty large so, compared to those large square earrings, these are "extra small".
So, I guess I should say that these earrings are the "extra smallest"....so far.

So Many Different Kinds of Pearls!
Freshwater pearls, which come from rivers and lakes in China, are the most popular of all types of pearls. Although they come in a huge range of colors, I work almost exclusively with white or cream pearls; these more natural pearl colors have been so popular, especially when paired with sterling silver! A classic combination! Click HERE to see all the freshwater pearl jewelry!
New bold earrings - familiar design, new larger format!
I'll be you have heard that big, bold earrings are "in" right now and for the foreseeable future! Bold earrings are a great accent for denim and can be the focal point of the "no makeup" make up look!
These statement earrings are also wonderful if you dress simply - they will create an instant sense of your personality!
These earrings come in two smaller sizes (medium size handmade silver earrings and this small silver earring design). This design was just begging for a new larger size and this is it!
