Snow Day !!!

snowflakeI’ve been in a silly mood all day today. All the impending doom/excitment over a blizzard (especially on a Friday or Sunday) always reminds me of being a kid. That was the best feeling in the world! A three day snow weekend felt like an eternity (an eternity in a good way, not like the eternity being at work feels like).

It’s a snowy Friday night, perfect time to hunker down, curl up with the laptop and shop online! I’m feeling some love for my fellow jewelry designers who show their pieces on Etsy (www.etsy.com). It’s a very cool site where you can find a gazillion neat vintage, handmade and one of a kind pieces. Each seller showcases their items in their very own shop (mine is http://fromtheashesjewels.etsy.com) .

New Addition

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the newest piece from my collection. The Basilica Chain necklace. As a kid I was always fascinated with Rosary beads. The jewel toned faceted crystals, the filigree beads, the ornate crucifixes. I don’t know, I was a weird little kid.

Every year around the holidays I would visit Saint Patrick’s Cathedral with my family. They had the most amazing collection of rosary beads . I had no idea what they were for (I still don’t really have a handle on it) but, I loved them and wanted them all!

In was inspired by the classic look of rosary beads, but wanted a more modern, wearable edge. So, to create this one of a kind necklace I incorporated a vintage crucifix and vintage chunky, textured chain. There are austrian crystals and cultured pearls dangling from the piece.

At a long 32″ the chain is very versatile and can be worn a ton of different ways. You can just throw it on over a t-shirt, alone or layered up with other pieces. It can be wrapped around your neck twice as a choker, or multiple times around the wrist for a layered bracelet. You can also wear the crucifix hanging in the front, or on the side with the decorative toggle clasp showing, for a cool I- just -roll -out- of -bed- looking- this- good- everyday -kind of style!

I’ll have this on my website tomorrow, if you’d like a closer look and to get all the details.
