I have to admit that my first impulse when creating a new piece is to go to the dark, rustic, earthy and old. The seasons of fall and winter are very attractive to me artistically.
But every once in awhile I break out of the brooding dark into the light. It is unusual for me but it IS my other side. With summer almost upon us, indeed it seems spring has skipped Cincinnati -85 today - my thoughts have turned to some of the lighter offerings in my etsy store. The summery colors and light look are just the thing for a hot day or night.
The two pair of earrings shown here are from vintage glass beads. They have that funky look that I like plus they are hollow , making them very light weight and easy to wear. Strawberries and oranges - could it get anymore summery!?
If they interest you just click on the pictures for more information and to purchase.
Last but not least a couple of light, summer oriented necklaces. Both contemporary looking, but one is in a modern style and the other is inspired by Ancient African neckwear. Both are easy wearing and versatile, and depending on the outfit can be worn for day or night.
So if your thoughts are also turning to a lighter look here are just a few of the many that I offer.
