New "rustic" silver section.....

I get lots of people looking for something a little more "rustic" than my normal style, but still fairly modern looking.

So I decided to offer some new things with a little bit of an antiqued finish, otherwise known as oxidized or blackened. They can be easily found in my new rustic section.

Oxidizing is the tarnishing process where silver turns a grayish color and loses its bright sheen. It occurs naturally when sterling silver is exposed to the air and humidity, as the non-silver part of the metal tarnishes. (Sterling silver is 92.5% silver, 7.5% other metals, hence the 925 mark you often see it marked with.)

You can let sterling do its tarnishing naturally, or you can help it along by using products like Liver of Sulfur Gel or Silver Black, that give silver that "blackened rustic" patina without having to wait.

Enjoy!

Organic modern + sentimental = not going to Goodwill



oxidized sterling silver bar earrings

I'm pretty much a minimalist in decor, following the less is more rule.

Much to my mother's chagrin, I'm not very sentimental about "stuff". Goodwill knows me well, as nothing feels better than dropping off a bag of things to them.

My husband is the same way...I always say if it's not nailed down or been used in the last 3 days, he will somehow try and get rid of it.

But there are a few things in my house that meet my modern organic vibe and are sentimental. And one of them is a set of 2 vases my brother made for me in college. He is an architect now and got to take some cool "artsy" classes.

I used one of the vases for a new prop of some things I just put in my shop. It is the perfect blend of the organic modern feel I am going for.

Enjoy!

Tiny silver letters are now here.....


 Happy Summer!

I love a delicate necklace this time of year, great for layering too. Thought these tiny cursive letters were the perfect fit! Everything is solid sterling silver.

Silver state necklaces....

California state necklace
 
So it's about this time of year that I'm a little tired of the cold and snow. I was born in CA and lived a fair amount of years there before relocating to CO. I love CO, but just miss the beach!

The biggest news a CA transplant can hear....Trader Joe's is coming soon! I have been waiting almost 8 years for that bit of information!



A cool trend I've seen a lot are the state necklaces....so I thought I'd offer a few....hoping to add more states soon!

TX
Texas

Enjoy all my new things!

14 karat gold filled items are here.....

Gold bar necklace
 
I have decided to branch out with my metals and am excited to offer some items now in 14k gold filled and rose gold filled!

They can all be found in my 14k gold filled and rose gold filled section.

Not familiar with gold filled? Gold filled is an extremely durable product. Real 14 karat gold is bonded in many layers to the surface, making it 100 times thicker than basic gold plating. With rose gold filled, they also add a bit of copper for the rose color.

It is meant to last for many years without wearing through, is a great economical alternative to solid gold, and is tarnish resistant.

Love a big gold hoop? I have these in 14k gold filled and solid sterling silver.

Rose gold and silver.....

6 mm size

I love the look of warm rose gold with silver, and the simplicity of an "everyday" necklace, so I decided to add these simple bead necklaces to my shop.

I used rose gold fill beads, to make them affordable but very long lasting. These rose gold fill beads are 12K rose gold bonded to the bead in a layering process, make them very durable and should last for years. They are placed on a solid sterling silver chain for a minimalist look.

I have three options right now:

6 mm round bead
8 mm round bead
trio of 5 mm round beads

Lots more new stuff coming soon....check out my NEW section to see it.

Yay summer! Modern filigree flower earrings.....


Finally, after what seemed like an endless winter, summer is finally here!

I like these fresh modern flower filigree earrings for this time of year, perfect little summertime accessory.

I also thought they would be a cute accent for a summer wedding bridesmaid dress or gift, so I also have put these in bridesmaids sets at 10% off the individual pair price.

Happy Summer!
