Spotlight: Love Haight Bracelet ($22)

Haight-Ashbury is an intersection in San Francisco in an area famous for the hippie movement of the 60's. I love the colors of this bracelet and they feel very "hippie chic" to me so that's why the name. The bracelet wraps around as one piece and is very comfortable and sturdy.

This bracelet is made with gold plated memory wire, glass, aventurine, quartz and red marble beads.

I have had a few questions about how to order things, and at this point, all you have to do is click on the "Email Me" button, and call or send me an email with the items you want. I take payment through PayPal and am working on getting the process streamlined a little better so that it's easier to purchase. I am still debating over whether or not I want to set up shop with Etsy, but I will keep everyone posted on that. Don't forget to keep entering the giveaway for the week! You have today and tomorrow left!

Lost & Found: Cheery Cherry Bracelet ($48)

So today would have been the day I announced the winner of the weekly giveaway, but since I haven't posted any new jewelry this week, I thought I'd add my new favorite Lost & Found piece, the "Cheery Cherry Bracelet" ($48). The flower is a vintage brooch (obviously with some wear, which is one of the reasons why I love it!) with red glass beads and a gold plated clasp to finish it off. I used beading thread instead of wire to wrap the brooch around the beads for comfort and to avoid scratching the piece any more than it already is. It is going to be very hard for me to part with this one, because I absolutely love the way it turned out. If you are interested, let me know, because this is truly one of a kind and probably won't last long!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I will be back Monday to start off the week with our first FREE giveaway! Make sure to tell your friends!
