Ornate Pink Floral Earrings

Fancy Egg Mauve Earrings

Hammered Fool's Gold

EAOC Summer Madness Treasure Hunt!!! The phrase of the day is "HERE COMES THE BRIDE". Have fun searching through my shop for the letter clues! Go to for the official list of participating shops and start hunting!

My Favorite Color Combo!

Turquoise Hearts Earrings

I must admit that there is no color combination that I love better than turquoise and gold! I owe it all to my Grandmother Gloria and her LOVE of turquoise! Whenever I can I always put the two together. How great is that! The bold contrast of the turquoise and hammered brass make these earrings a winner!

Who wants a Tall Glass of Root Beer... I do!

I am just in love with these earrings! They got their name from a recent trip I had to Florida. I have always been in love with root beer and there are no places in Philadelphia (that I know that has REAL root beer, not in a plastic bottle. Well imagine my amazement when I saw A&W stores everywhere in Florida. It was the best Root Beer I ever had! Since I can't have it here, I just made earrings to remind me of it! Here they are!
