Style & Inspiration Boards Time! {and exciting new gorgeousness-esss}

I know I've been absent lately and I feel bad for neglecting my little blog here, but it was for good! I'm just a little swamped with keeping up with my Etsy shop, custom orders, as well as preparing for 2 upcoming shows and some surprise projects going on. I actually can't wait to tell you about the surprise project and the story behind it because it was one of those magical things for me which made my jaw drop literally, anyway more on that later I promise! 

I have some super new designs to show you. Also new style boards I put together for some ideas on how to create different looks with my 'Fluttery Breath of Life Necklace' and one extra bonus look with  the little Take me to Istanbul Earrings! I hope you enjoy them, don't forget to comment and let me know which look is your favorite one!
Last but now least; if you are in the area; come and visit me at Patchwork Indie &Craft Show at Long Beach this Sunday! Yes, I will be showing/selling my designs there and I'd love to meet you in person. ;) I'll be at booth #61.

Let's start with the new designs, ohh how much I luuuve them and super excited too! ;)

 You know I've been creating my butterfly pieces with organza fabric so far? Now silk too! I just love how  silk gives such vibrant colors. I'm still loving my see through organza butterflies, how they take each other's colors and patterns when I cluster them, like watercolor painting. Both have different look and feel to them.

These below are the long/large single earrings I created them mainly with silk but some mixed with organza butterflies. I've done some photoshop magic on some of them. You can see some wings have a scene of nature (blue sky, trees and flying birds) within the silhouette of a butterfly. I think that adds a great interest to the design. I've also used gold framed acrylic spacers in different colors on these ones, they are very charming!

Meanwhile I also worked on my original organza butterfly earrings, the listing for them in my shop needed an update since I improved them a lot by time, also to be able to give more choices to my customers. Lots of more choices here

This necklace is a custom design I made for a client. I created it with the colors she preferred and in longer length of chain due to her request. It is a smaller version of my 'Fluttery Breath of Life' necklace.

This necklace below is created with the combination of silk and organza butterflies, I've also used hand died silk ribbon instead of chain which will be tied around the neck to desired length. Available in my shop now!

Here comes of of my most favorite butterfly creations so far; Fluttery Butterflies wide Cuff Bracelet or Anklet . Again mix of organza and silk butterflies clustered on stretch nude tone material which is adjustable to fit around wrists or ankles easily; also featuring 11 unique butterfly kinds!

Aaaand the style boards! For the butterfly necklace I put together 1 casual and 1 dressy look. I'm excited to hear which one is your fave.

And here is the bonus one; Traveling to Istanbul.. Turkish Tile earrings are available in my shop!

I hope you enjoyed everything you saw in this post, I'm so happy my creative mojo is back lately and only I wish I could make everything happen floating in my mind impatient to come out! :)
