new for spring

My sincere apologies for temporarily deserting you for the last three (!!) weeks. Would a show n' tell make up for my lack of attention? Because I have been busy crafting the beginning of spring 2012 designs, and some of them are ready for you to see. :D

First, these lovely silver bangles, featuring real turquoise and amethyst gems and Sterling silver. Spring is almost here, and the bright blue and purple reminds me of crocuses and blue skies. They look great alone or layered, and you can click on the links below for more information on each one.

 For these bracelets I wanted to experiment with a clasp-free design that would just slip over the hand. It took a few tries to get a design that was slender and compact, yet strong and dense enough to hold its shape through many wearings. And of course, gems had to be involved! As mentioned, turquoise and amethyst bangles are currently in the shop, and I'll be experimenting with more gems soon, most probably pearls, since nothing beats their creamy luster.

A copper bangle is also up for grabs, although it has a warmer look reminiscent of suntans and fires on the beach. Doesn't that sound like an amazing vacation? Well until the bugs start biting and the tide rolls in, anyway.

The final piece of this little show n' tell is a pair of copper earrings in a brand new shape. It's hip to be square! These lovelies also feature genuine amethyst centered in the rectangular dangles. They're sleek and modern, and I can't wait to play around with this surprisingly interesting shape some more.

I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek!

PS: A pattern for these earrings will be available soon for all of my fellow knitters. ;)
