Black Friday

Or, black pearls at least!  These three necklaces look smashing together.  They include: the short organic pearl and coin pearl necklace; the vintage tassel with black pearl; and the black ox chain, pearl, and vintage necklace.  Happy shopping!

The Erin Necklace with Vintage Crown Pin

For the "royals:" a necklace with vintage rhinestone crown and other vintage elements with chain and glass pearls hand-knotted on silk.  You'll feel like a queen wearing it!

Giving Thanks

The Anita Necklace

This handmade necklace features pearls, circles, hammered discs and crosses all looped together with gold plate chain.
This is one of my favorite "go to/wear with everything" necklaces and it is named after two of my favorite people, both Anitas'.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

The Allison Necklace

This is one of my new favorite necklaces!  It features a vintage pin from Turtle Lake, Wisconsin.
The pin is amazing in it's brilliance.  There are four strands of quartz, shell pearls, and Swarovski pearls in gold plate.

Want to see it?  I'll have it at the Holiday Boutique at 8500 Normandale Boulevard, Bloomington, MN on November 20th and 21st from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm each day.
I'd love to see you there!

In Tribute to Donna

When I think of my mother, Donna, I think of her as being full of life and light.  She taught me what is important; family and friends, to concentrate on what is good and what is worth working for; to stay true to who you are, and that sometimes change is good and necessary.

Her birthstone is the pearl; funny that I use it in most of my designs.  She passed in 1983 at the age of 55; yet she lives on in her family and in my jewelry.  She is one of the strongest women that I have ever met.  My mother is the "donna" in L'donna, and she would love this necklace!
