Bits and Baubles.

Strung bracelet of bamboo stone and yellow jade. Finished with smokey Swarovski crystals.

I made an order on Etsy recently of some beautiful new gemstones including some luxe citrine briolettes, Moroccan agate, peach moonstone and aquamarine among other things. Anyways, with all the new gems I’ve been pumping out a few new designs and thought I would share them with you first! Check out the full post to see more pictures of the beautiful bracelet and a couple of pairs of wire wrapped earrings.

I’m extremely happy with the outcome of my newest designs. I’m having a hard time not just keeping them for myself, we’ll see how THAT turns out!

I’m feeling more inspiration coming on so expect to see more designs and my Etsy page up here soon! Let me know what you think of the new jewelry.

Ballerina or April?

Cardigan: thrifted // T-shirt: Everly // Earrings: handmade // Ring: Black Market Boutique

Please excuse the half outfit post (and slightly out of focus photos) today. After an hour of searching around the house I realized the piece I needed to put my camera on the tripod was nowhere to be found. So, with Christian sailing again I’m left to take the pictures myself making a full outfit post difficult until I convince someone else to snap some shots for me. I know, I know, I’m full of excuses – I’ll make it work until he’s home.

I really love this simple mustard yellow tee I picked up from Biscuit General Store downtown earlier this spring. It drapes beautifully and has a lovely, flattering cut.

The citrine earrings are the ones that I posted about earlier this week. I actually can’t even describe how much I’ve been loving them. I think I’ve worn them every day for a week. I actually ordered some more citrine and some other lovely jewels recently off of Etsy so that I’m able to make and sell more in a similar style.

Cheers,
Alison

PS: I love the way the new haircut looks in a little ballerina bun. I feel like pairing it with a pair of cigarette jeans and striped sweater and being a little Parisian girl. haha!

PPS: Also, with my hair out of the bun and the colour of my tee I realized I bare a striking resemblance to April O’Neil from Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles – more so than just being a ginger. Check out the full post to see what I mean, and let me know if you agree!

Bejeweled.

Above: A pair of Aventurine and Jasper earrings I plan on putting up for sale. Keep you eyes peeled for a possible Etsy shop in my future! Below: A pair of Citrine and gold wire earrings I concocted and put together a couple of days ago.

Hey guys, trying to get back into the swing of  regular posts by giving a little teaser of sorts.

First an update, I’ve been seriously thinking about creating an Etsy shop for my jewellery this past week. Christian recently started up his own shop (here) a short time ago and has already sold a few of his beautiful prints. So, his success with it has inspired me to start up my own and hopefully have a little extra cash on hand for the summer while doing something I genuinely enjoy. Keep an eye out for it, I’ll post the link as soon as I get it up and running. The upper pair of Aventurine and Jasper earrings will definitely be up for sale in the store. Sorry that the picture is a little out of focus – that’s what you get when I’m the photog and not Christian – but they are quite stunning in person.

The second, Citrine pair are something I made for myself. I love the golden glow that they give off and the one slightly more saturated, honey coloured stone. They have also been the only pair of earrings I’ve worn since I finished them – check back later to see how I wore them with today’s outfit later!

Happy Sunday!

Alison
