I’m loving these enameled bangle sets from Bullfinch & Barbury…I loved wearing stacks of bangles in the ’80s {I’m seriously dating myself, I know!!}…and I think I’d love to have a stack of these on my arm…now to decide which ones to choose!!

I adore the chunky stacked druse ring from Carrie Bilbo {above, right}…and go to her website to visit it on occasion…Sigh {I have issues, I know!!}. Many of her pieces are inspired by nature…from silver rings that look like twigs to necklaces that have cicada wings in them. Gorgeous.

lovely lovelies.

Such beautiful, rustic-y jewelry from New Hampshire based Lisa’s Lovelies {or, New Hamster as my daughter used to call it}. There seems to always be something new at her shop…and, I know, because I’m there more often than I’d like to admit visiting the “bramble ring” above. Gorgeous pieces…and ooh, how I’d love to sport that ring on my finger!

summer break.

Hi everyone! I took a little much-needed {and unintentional} blogging break…and it’s really nice to be back! June has been a little crazy: I’ve been to Oregon to visit my parents, to Thai Massage classes, had a visit from the in-laws, and have been driving my daughter to Chicago for two weeks to art camp at Lill Street Art Center {yikes}…which brings me to today’s post!

One of my daughter’s classes was a week long “metals” class from a fantastic teacher, Rebecca Zemans. Of course, I HAD to check out her site, and was totally impressed with her beautiful jewelry and metal sculpture…what a lucky girl to have such a talented teacher!

I adore the jewelry from Maine’s Quench Metalworks. Let’s just say that you were wondering what kind of gift to get me…you know, just in case you didn’t know. Then, you might consider the fabulous butterfly necklace {bottom, right}…or the ring {top, left}. That’s just the nice kind of person I am…helping you make these difficult decisions easier!!

You can learn more about the artist, Jen, here. Follow her blog here. Fan {or, “like”} her on Facebook!
