Sparkling Boho Diva Bling with an Island Style Twist!

I am in love this new piece with its island girl boho glam..the little purple dyed clover flower is mother of pearl and is reminiscent of the little clover flower bling that dangles off of Louis Vuitton bags and key chains. And the mother of pearls is keeping to the island theme along with the freshwater pearls and the relaxed organic style of the knotted silk. It's one of the newest additions to my shop...and you can check out more pics of it here:

Project Accessory!!

Are you jewelry lovers watching this show? I'm so excited about's so much fun! I get so jealous that every time my husband gets into something be it sports, guns, knives, ATV's...hunting..etc..there is always a million shows on about it all day long it seems. I know we've had some craft shows in the past..but seems they aren't on least not here on Maui.

Project Accessory is high quality it's sister show Project Runway. Love that one too.

I love this necklace by Christina Caruso

My other favorite was Nina Cortes shoes on episode 2...super cute and very boho..

I love how this show challenges their creative abilities and helps you to see outside of the box. Especially the first episode where they had to get their supplies from two storage units of junk..and they only had 15 min to grab things. I could watch a show based just on that every week! Here's to hoping this sets off more ideas for crafty shows to watch!

Showing some love..

Here are a few pieces I've made for family members and friends recently..

This cool triple pendant boho necklace went to my has a colorful array of many different stones..mostly jaspers..the front middle pendant is Peruvian opal

These earrings are still waiting for their new home with my sister to match her necklace above...

This Boho Beachy necklace also went to my sister to hopefully match some earrings she bought from another friend jewelry designer that has beach glass in them.This has glass pearls and fire polish glass faceted beads with a pendant of hami jasper and synthetic chalcedony briolette.

This peacock pearl and Paua abalone shell crocheted necklace just went to a friend visiting from the mainland who used to live here. She also got one hot off the pics because I literally just finished making was turquoise blue crystal and a Hill Tribe silver little Honu charm for a pendant...super sparkly and cute!

There were a couple of necklaces and a bracelet that went out to a friend and my sis in law that I didn't get pictures of..kinda bummed about's always nice to at least have a pic for memories sake..I tend to get attached to any piece I'm working on ;-)
