I know..there is no excuse! My blog has taken a back seat in my busy life lately. So, what better way to kick off Spring, than to show you some of the new things going on with my creations for Spring 2014! Yes..there will always be the keys..I adore keys, and these are the latest. Wrapped in vintage ecru lace, and accented with Swarovski crystals and pearls and semi precious stones.
I have been having a lot of fun with my newest love...vintage silverware!
I have a few great shows lined up over the next few months, so if you are local, you can see the event dates on the right hand side of my blog.
I just finished these pieces from my Valentines Collection. Not just for Valentines Day, but any day of the year when you want to feel a little loved! All of the beautiful vintage keys on these necklaces were obtained during my recent trip to England. This necklace can be worn short or long!
Vintage brass heart, antique key and some sparkle!

Happy belated New year to all my readers! Yes, I know its been way too long since I blogged. In December we traveled to England to visit my family for the holidays. It was a bittersweet visit, as although it was amazing to see my Dad, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, it was a very sad time as my step mother was dying. She had been diagnosed with Alzheimers about 3 years ago, and when my Dad could no longer care for her, she was moved to a nursing home. At about that same time she was also diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
My step mom, Ann, married my father at the tender age of 28 years old after my mother passed away in a car accident. She took on 4 children under the age of 16. Quite a feat, considering that most 28 year olds today are still single and out enjoying the party life on weekends. Within the year , I also had a new baby sister, so now there were 5 of us! She was an amazing lady, very gentle, loving and reserved. She was active, intelligent and vibrant.
She passed away last week, she was only 67. On the bright side we were able to see her several times in December, and say our good byes.
On another note, I am busy planning my Spring line of jewellery. This seasons designs will be softer, more romantic and slightly spiritual. I hope to have some pictures available in the next few weeks.
