new this week

normally, i'm not a big fan of purple, but something about the light lavender color of these vintage rings really struck me. it seemed that they would be the perfect extension of my eternity necklace designs. i was really pleased with the results and have decided to begun a hunt for more vintage rings in other colors and materials. depending on my success, you may see more of these guys pop up in the store soon. for now you can find this design and the rest of the eternity collection on etsy.
i re-listed the final pair of spearmint strip earrings this morning. it is quite sad to see the end of these beads; they have such a great graphic quality to them, are the perfect weight and i just love the shape and color. i suppose this is the catch 22 or working with vintage materials. the older beads have a rarity and a quality that new beads just can't capture, but eventually, the supply will run out. however, i just ordered a big batch of new beads last month which means now is the time to put them to good use and to find some new favorites. also listed today, silver double hoops. these are not a new design but are new to etsy. simple and organic the double hoops are available in either a bright silver or oxidized finish.

I have been a fan of yours since I saw your lovely pieces at the Handmade Market in Raleigh a couple of years ago. Tomorrow, I plan to blog about you and your jewelry. Hope you enjoy the post!
