Flowers and Leather


Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments about the artwork in my last post.  I'm so excited about what I've been working on and hope to be able to share all of the details with you by the end of the month.




Something you may not know about me is that I'm a jewelry lover.  Not big expensive precious jewels, though I am lucky to have some expensive jewelry, I rarely wear the smoochier stuff.  No, my jewelry lovin' leans more towards quirky, eclectic, and the unusual...plus reasonably priced.

I love finding pretty little bracelets, earrings, and necklaces that I can mix and match to whatever I'm wearing that day.


 

So whenever I stumble upon something and the price is right, I snap it up and I haven't regretted one single piece I've purchased.  Like for instance, the sweet little leather rosette bracelet above that I recently found at my friend Dawna's store...Cecil's Country Store.

I can't tell you how many great pieces of jewelry I have bought from Dawna over the years but right off the top of my head I can name a few pieces that are personal favorites and pieces I get comments on every time I wear them...like my pewter crab cuff bracelet, my jeweled snowflake pin, my shell bracelet, and the list goes on and on.




As soon as I saw these pretty little floral bracelets made from tooled and cut leather I knew my collection would be growing.  I also picked one up for a friend as a thank you for my lameness lately...you know who you are! ;-)




The best part is that no 2 are alike, some have pink flowers, 2 flowers, purple, you name it, and the price was too good to be true.  I'm thinking I may just need to pop back by and pick up a few more...some for myself of course but these would also make great gifts that span the generations.

I haven't had a chance to wear mine out since I bought it...can you say stuck at my computer lately?!  But I know that when I do, people will say, "oh what a cute bracelet," and they'll want to know where I bought it.  Be sure to stop by Cecil's if you want one of your own, I know that they will go quickly...sometimes I wish I could keep these great secrets for myself, but dang it, I just can't!

  6. That is adorable. I love casual and not expensive jewelry too. I picked up two sterling silver rings at a yard sale for a dollar the other day and both fit. Love it when that happens. Hugs, olive

  10. Wow! What gorgeous looking jewelry. You got a good eye girl. I am blessed to have a lot of good pieces because my son owned a jewelry store for about 15 years.....but I don't wear much of it. xo Diana
