Aqua Dream

I just posted my newest creation on my LeAllyson's Creations Etsy shop. I just love making a new design. I wanted to use the aqua faceted glass briolettes. There is something so classy and elegant about briolettes. I purposely allowed the briolettes to take center stage, then the pearls with chain going up and around the back of the neck. I find that necklaces lay better when they are not too bulky as they go around the back of the neck. Then I added a couple of little pearls near the clasp along with a pearl and crystal on the extender. I really like the look of some decoration at the back of the necklace. It makes the picture complete and no detail is overlooked. That what I was striving for here.

When I was making this piece, I was thinking of light colors and summer dresses. It would also look great with white dotted swiss, or something with the aqua color swirled in with other colors. So many feminine blouses are being worn this year. This would go great with one of them. Then when I listed it in my shop, it dawned on me that this would look good with a sweater or soft crepe dress in dark brown, winter white, or deep teal.

Those of you who make and sell your jewelry, do you think of so many possibilities for your little creations? Sometimes I just don't even want to part with my designs once I start visualizing all the ways they can be worn. Then I always remind myself that I can create the piece again and keep it for myself.

A Gem of a Mother's Day

I am the mother of five grown children. Two of them are my natural children and three of them are my step-children. I am so thankful for each one of them.

They are each unique, gifted, talented, and very special in their own ways. Each one reached out to me to honor me as their mother today. I am so blessed!

I wish each mother who reads this many blessings and good memories.
Happy Mother's Day!

May Flowers

I am so happy that I am beginning to sell some more flower earrings. They are such happy things, and perfect for the season. It is so cold here in St. Louis, that we need any sign of spring we can get. It rained buckets today, and the temperature has been in the mid fifties. Brr! Here is what I sold lately.
