Inspiration can come from anything. Mostly, I like to stare at my beads and stones until something clicks! Then too many things click and I have a list of projects to last for days.
Last week it all came to me in a pile of pinks and roses!

Wear one, or ALL AT ONCE!

I’ve had the rose quartz for about a month, and the ceramic rose beads for almost a week. Then Robyn came calling and it was creation time, and well, everything struck right!

Now we have a fabulous little Pretty in Pink set. A combination of Rose Quartz, Crystal, Ceramic and Agate beads. They’re simple, classic and sweet. They make me think of garden parties, tea cups and petticoats!

So many pinks!

Now I’m thinking i want to do more sets like this! Changing some stones and configurations has really opened up the style flexibility while keeping the same feel.

And some days you want your favourites, but simpler.

Classic single beads go with everything!

And these may have in turn inspired a couple kids pieces! Apparently there are some little girls out there who are *really* into pink shiny things.

Little Helpers

I had an assistant on my last jewellery shoot! And by “assistant” I mean “someone who understood “help” to mean “do all the things! Be in charge! Now’s your chance!”

Which means I think somehow I became his assistant.

My 8 year old took hold of the camera, took 16 shots of up his nose, 6 pictures of the sky, 10 of me trying to get a bracelet on, and an experimental one through the wavy glass window.

I’m *really* glad this digital camera thing took hold.


Among the more “artistic” shots, there were some surprisingly good ones.

Getting there…. This is the collection of everything we did.
Oooooo… Feather earrings!

He was quick on the draw! How long does it take to set a necklace for a picture? At least 4 shots!

Like secret behind the scenes footage!

It’s a great feeling to get your kids involved in what you do. We had an awesome evening taking pictures, going over the shots, and choosing what to use. He’s pretty proud to get his stuff up on the internet (kids are easy to impress) Plus, now I have a helping hand! Next goal: to get him designing!
