I'm trying to ignore it, but summer is on its last breath around here in Boston. It was short and like a whirlwind for us with my parents moving out of our home and into their own, my sister Ina coming back to study, and sister Anne coming for a 3 week visit filled with great sight seeing.
Another great thing we did and that I really don't want to miss over the winter is all the flea markets we have been to. Even Lilly loved them! I amazed a great collection of vintage jewelry pieces that I can't wait to fashion into new necklaces and earrings. So many ideas floating in my head! I already made these two one-of-a-kind necklaces with them. I even made a third, but can't let go of that one.
The first one is made with this gorgeous black and white Cameo that used to be a pin or brooch. I love how it plays off the sparkling black beads on either side.
And this one here features a filigree Heart surrounded by lilac faceted beads in the same style. I just love working on these styles and there are many more to come!

This summer is passing like the wind - more like a whirlwind but oh so much fun! No time to bloggy-dy-blog! Instead we did a lot of sightseeing and worked on some custom orders like these 10 Custom Initial Felt Keychains. They will be stocking stuffer's for 10 nieces. Isn't that a great idea! What a nice auntie.
