Another talented artist!! I am loving her jewelry. I looked at her pearl necklaces and they are all gorgeous. I like one in particular, but couldn't find the name for it! I like the journals you featured as well!

XO,
Jane

She surely is a talented lady. You picked a gorgeous journal!
The weather is soooo fall like here, we have rain rain rain.
I think your sweet pea overseas must have some sweet raindrops too, the weather in England is to be compared with our weather.
Enjoy your Thursday, sweet friend xoxoxo

oh the earrings !!!
and the brag books ! yes yes yes !
thank you for this generosity ~

Suz said...

Koralee,
I had a hard time leaving. She really does do beautiful work. I loved her lengths, I like the weight of her things and how the pendants and weighted well with the chain and I like the style in which she has beads down to about the last two inches of a necklace and then finished with a few inches of large silver links. Beautiful jewelry!

I follow you daily but on Google Reader. If I follow you here, you would get my daughter. The blog is in her name and there is no way we can change it.

Thanks for introducing us (me, anyway) to such a talented jeweler!

Hugs,
Suz

All of these beautiful items you are offering from these amazingly creative women.
Unfortunately I don't have the time to enter anymore of these lovely give aways this week...work and wedding plans...family arriving from out of town...need I say more.
After everything settles down I am going to reread through these posts to discover what these ladies are creating and selling in their shops.Thank you so much for introducing us to them...it is always so wonderful to learn about new things.
Have fun with your beautiful Give Away week.
Cheers to you on this gorgeous day.

I was fortunate
enough to have met
Laurie at the CC;
she looks like a
model you would see
in a Ralph Lauren
catalog, sitting on
a rocky ledge in the
desert....She's like
a desert flower!!!
And very nice and VERY
talented. I love her
Ethiopian triple strand
necklace....and all of
her journals are divine!
