Because I am leaving for a vacation at the end of the month, I am feeling generous in spirit so I just created a final sale section in my Etsy shop.  It's a place where I will be putting all those pieces that need a home.  Check it out from time to time - there will be some good deals.  The sale section does not include the pieces pictured below... they are either on the way to the shop or already listed.

#1 Beach necklace.... for obvious reasons.  (sailing)
Beach necklace
 #2 Layering lesson, the perfect combo of long and short with a great earring accent.
Perfect together
 #3 Just a beautiful pair of earrings with divine cultured ocean pearls in the softest grey and micro-faceted quartz beads from my archives of beads that I can not replace.
Old school elegance

OH joy! (I'm going sailing)

It's true!  I am going to sailing school with my Dad.  *thrilled*  


So to celebrate, I am offering free shipping in my Etsy shop for the rest of January.  I will close the shop for the first half of February - I can't ship from a sailboat!  


Use the code FREESHIPPING at checkout.  Yippee!

Back to the beach

I have no firm plans to travel as of yet but if I did..... oh I long to dive beneath the surface of the bright blue waters of the ocean and spend some quality time with my fish friends.

I have been meaning to list this necklace in my Etsy shop for some time, I guess that I didn't really want to part with it.  This is my favorite style of necklace, long and linked and fabulous.  Classic colors in a classic length, I always layer a necklace like this with a pendant necklace and my gold chains.  It gives my hands something to touch while I gaze at the horizon.  Hopefully your horizon will have some palm trees and an umbrella.

Sunnier days on remote islands

Coral and ivory vintage beads on gold fill
Vacation time is here.  We all need to get away - I so hope that I will have to chance to sit on a beach in the sun.  These earrings will look so good with your swimsuit and floppy hat.
