...lovely adornments

hello dear hearts!
we are FINALLY getting a little spring sunshine and warmth
who-hoooo :)
can you tell that it makes my heart happy?!
to pass those cooler, dreary days away,
i have been designing a few jewelry adornments
for my sea wardrobe,
incorporating my hand dyed sea silk ribbons...
this heart shaped shell, complete with barnacles,
called out to me on etsy one day ~
and i just knew it would be lovely as a necklace!
so i gathered a few of my pretties
bits of lace, hand dyed silk ribbons, jacob's tear beads
pretty blue crystals, gemstones...
basically whatever struck my fancy:)
i started wire wrapping the jacob's tear beads
and went from there...
on the part that rests on the nape of your neck
i made an embellished stripe
so that when my hair is in an up do
it looks pretty too!
(my neck)
((hopefully my up do looks good too!))
(((but at the sea, there are NO promises!! it usually just frizzes out!!
like salty sea hair ~ LOL!!)))
((((hence, why i knew why my hair would be in an up do!!))))
adding bits and bobs of pretties...
 infusing vintage pieces when i can,
such as this tiny medal charm and rhinestone rondelle
i adore the finished piece...
and look forward to wearing it the next time at the sea :)
i guess you could say that
i really "love" it!!
 (tee, hee!)
i've also been experimenting with hand dyed ballet slippers...
and adorning them with whimsical pretties...
i call them my sea slippers...
i will be making a few pairs for sale, later on in the season.
here is a glass box of ear adornments i've been making too...
a pair for every day of the week!
and i know i'm not alone in this ~ 
i have a thing for mercury glass...
so when i spied this fabo bottle, wrapped in wire
i knew in an instant that it simply must be mine!!
(wouldn't you have?!)
i brought it home and adorned it with the tiniest brass cross pins
that i have ever seen...
i am collector of unique fancies...
when i was finished pinning all those crosses on,
i decided that some of them need a little bling
( perhaps you have figured it out by now, i love a bit of sparkle?!?)
i glued on some crystal rhinestones...
oh so lovely with a few sprigs of lilies of the valley fleurs!
and new in my etsy shop
for your springtime delight ~
are these cherry blossom fairies!
she carries a cherry blossom branch
and wears a crown of paper blossom blooms
her wing are iridescent and fully move able...
i hope the warm, spring sun is kissing all of you too!
next week,
i will be sharing my driftwood ladder...
hope to see you then!
