The cat, of course, has immediately curled up beside me with her little paw on my arm, and I think I'm ready to start this blog!
I'm Anne-Marie. I'm a musician, a mom, a jewelry designer. I love to cook, sew, write, create. This blog is going to be mainly about JEWELRY! Handmade, creative, unique; some of which I make, some made by others. Join me in my little world!
I love COLOR. I love not-color too; plain metals, neutrals, black and white, but color... Color makes me feel things. Oranges and yellows make me thirsty, greens and blues relax me, red and purple make me feel rich. haha Might as well feel it, right?
I made a necklace lately using waxed Irish linen cord and using lots of COLOR. I've got quite a few beads at this point, so I just went with my gut, and out came Spring on a String!
I love working with this grey linen cord; it's so me! Strung along it in this piece are:
5 pieces of Indonesian glass
2 cherry quartz
2 lampwork glass beads(by radiantmind on etsy; love!)
and Indonesian bone.
This necklace, which extends from 17 1/2 to 19 inches, is also listed in my etsy shop here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/74719046/spring-on-a-string-gemstone-sterling
One more thing for today. I was just accepted into the Jewelry on Etsy Team, or JET Team. I'm excited! Every day they have a featured member, and today's is an amazing artist from the Isle of Arran in Scotland. I love her organic-looking pieces, like these:
See you tomorrow! -Anne-Marie
