I blog about my jewelry inspirations. Readers will find that various elements of nature are my inspirations. Of course, I include jewelry making tips. This blog also includes some of my favorite Etsy shops, bead shops and jewelry customers.

fall wedding on the beach? I like to select colors by looking at
Mother Nature. This is a great time of the year to look around at all

lavender 18th birthday cake and now a lavender and green wedding colors.
