Kenneth Grahame's Wind in the Willows is a childhood favorite of mine. I would sprawl out under a tree and get swept up into the tale of Ratty, Mole Badger and the indomitable Mr. Toad. My sister even named one of her pet rats, Ratty. The natural arizona turquoise, carved wood, sparking czech glass, creamy coin pearls and vintage bronze were evocative to me of Ratty's wanderlust. I connected to his longing for space and freedom. I find great beauty in water, rippling brooks dancing over pebbles; willowy trees rooted along the riverbank. As I draped myself next to the water and let my hand trail in the limpid stream I am bathed in serenity. 31.5 inches long. Necklace $43, Earrings $12
Like it's counterpart previously posted, Vintage Shimmer II is composed of Vintage Bronze wire and clear Czech glass. However, this version is only 15 inches long, designed to hug the neck. The middle bead nestles into the hollow of my throat. But, if you need a little more wiggle room, I can add on a few extra beads.
Remember eating a bowl of strawberries sprinkled with a wee bit of brown sugar and dotted with cream? After all the berries were demolished, we'd be left with a sugary pink cream that was so delicious!

Magpie Madness emerged from my love of turquoise, my search for quality jewelry at affordable prices, and my desire to create opportunities for you too. My son Ian, while gazing at rows upon rows of beads exclaimed, "Mom, I'm a magpie; I like shiny things!" It was a natural fit because he rarely stops talking. The name clicked.
