Silver Splendor Collection

What I've been up to lately? Fusing silver. 

I am working on some all-silver designs. I feel like there's endless possibilities with silver creations and at the same time they will go with any outfit. 

They could be your new favorite, wear-everyday earrings, bracelet or necklace. 
I have a new fine silver bracelet in the store today and a few new listings of old favorites. Some limited time, made to order designs as well.

Spread the Love

In the storm of hate and violence, let your heart stay strong and filled with love. Love and understanding is where we will find peace. Not hate, not fear, not violence. I believe the world must come together with tolerance and with understanding of our differences. We will never be the same. We must love and accept that. For we are nothing without each other. Without love. I urge you to fill the world with all the beauty you have to offer today. Do.

Earrings Everyday: The Crow

The Crow

https://www.etsy.com/listing/151816042/raven-earrings-crow-earrings-silver?ref=shop_home_active_1


The crow bird. 
To some- a sad, lonely, even mean bird. 
Dark, and mysterious. 

Not what I imagine when I see the crow.
I see my (late) aunt on the lawn... feeding them bread. 
I asked her why she fed the birds- she said- 
because I like them. A simple answer. 
What else did I expect?
It's funny what inspires our art, our creations. 
A memory, a lost love, a color we are drawn to. 
Whatever it may be, we know what it means to us. 
Our jewelry doesn't always have to have meaning behind it- 
but more often than not, I think it does. 
That's what makes us reach for it and wear it and love it. 
This set of earrings was inspired by the love for this woman who raised me as her own daughter. 

 Alzheimer diseases took her away from me long before she passed away last fall. 

So now I too am drawn to crows and have a special love for them that I never would have otherwise. 

I found these white bronze charms in a small bead shop in Port Townsend, WA. We took a road trip around the Hwy 101 loop in 2012. An amazing trip with my best friend and partner of almost 30 years. 

Lots of story and love and memories behind these earrings. 

Thank you for reading along and allowing me to share. 

Available for a limited time

Peace and blessings ~ Cindy
