Handmade - The Only Way To Go!!!

If you don't know about Etsy than you must be living under a rock. And now that you will be coming out from under that rock let me tell you about my little secret love affair.

Lorelei makes jewelry. Very pretty jewelry. Handmade jewelry.

This was the first piece that I bought from her - an incredible necklace made from brass, Czech glass, green jade and abalone shell. I get compliments on it every time I wear it. It's one of those feel good things that make me feel special. I just love this piece.

Than I bought this beauty.

And she made these for me to go with it.

I had to have these - I wish that you could feel them. Ahhh.....

She has quite a few pretties listed right now. The best thing about her jewelry is that she uses quite a lot of natural materials and supports other artists by incorporating their art into her own art.

She also has a fabulous blog, Inside the Studio, that showcases her art as well as others. She has a wicked sense of humor - I just know we'd be fast friends if we lived closer. I'd be at her house all the time playin' in her beads!

Honey you come over anytime! We could sit on the porch and laugh over a nice bottle wine.
:) Thanks for being the sweetest.

Oh those are gorgeous. I got teared up looking at them. Now before you think I'm a total nut, it's because they remind me of a set that I bought for my stepmom the year Gavin was born. I haven't gotten the courage to ask my dad if I can have them yet. Sigh...

Hey girls ...

Autumn... you should ask - explain to him that they mean something to you. How could he say no....
