Coming in 2011...

Well, now that there are very few shopping - and shipping - days left until Christmas, I expect that my shop will slow down a bit. I'm looking forward to a little break, but I'm also planning ahead to 2011.

I'm always influenced by nature and the seasons, so most of my new creating will be white, crystal clear, or pale, icy blue. Greys will figure prominently as well.

Last winter I created this Ice Crystals bracelet. I plan to create similar bracelets and coordinating earrings, perhaps from these lovely crystal quartz and white agate beads.

These lovely pale blue beads of chalcedony, blue lace agate, and aquamarine remind me of the frozen waterfalls we see while skiing, and snow on a blindingly sunny day.

Grey has figured prominently in my fall creations as it was one of the "it" colors of the season, and I'll continue to create pieces in this lovely neutral hue, especially out of Petoskey stones.

These beads have been selected to be earrings and a necklace, respectively.

And of course who could forget paua shells? Grey, but also every color of the rainbow the paua shell is the perfect complement to the iridescence of snow and ice.
These gorgeous, wine colored pearls will be the perfect addition to my January creations which will feature garnets heavily.

And as February approaches, I'll begin to add more items featuring amethysts to my shop.

And in other news, I'm planning on re-starting my semi-regular interview feature, and I've got the next interviewee all lined up for January, so tune in to see who it is!

I'm also happy to announce that my Metallic Coral Rose Antique Brass Ring was featured as part of Handmade Highway's Craftjuice Tuesday today. Check out the post here.
