{145.00} Noir/Blanc charm bracelet-(click on image to enlarge)

I have had soo much fun making these new designs. I have half a wardrobe that is black and white in pretty much every variety; polka dots, zebra stripes, you name it. If it's black and white, I love it! So, why I have never made any jewelry like this before is beyond me. I made the bracelet from black, white, and sage green lamp beads that I purchased. The bracelet itself is sterling silver as well as vintage buttons, swarovski crystals, and various silver findings. It is so beautiful on and will be hard to part with! I added extra length due to it's weight. It is fairly heavy and needed a little more room to fit comfortably. Should fit up to 8" wrist. The bracelet has floating silver beads that slide around the rings.
There will be many more designs to come in the Noir~Blanc line. I already know it will be one of my favorites. Also new are my resin rings, bracelets and pendants. After their photo shoot, they will be here shortly!

Enjoy a wonderful week!


p.s. Check back soon. I will be having my spring fling giveaway next post!

Apple pies & warm hellos

I have been seriously missing from my blogland for awhile now and I really miss it. We've been on vacation, among other things. I am having some camera issues I'm dealing with, so I'm adding a favorite apple pie recipe and some photos I took awhile ago while making it for a friend. This is Paula Deen's lattice apple pie with the crunch topping. It is soo delicious! I would love to sit down with you all with a piece warm from the oven with a little vanilla bean icecream on top and a cup of coffee. Mmmmmmm....

Happy Tuesday!
