Moonstruck SOLD

Driving the the gym this morning I was captured by the full moon hanging full and ripe over the edge of the sky. I've always been mesmerized by the full moon. Perhaps it's the irresistible call of romance. 

moon·struck

1. Dazed or distracted with romantic sentiment.
2. Affected by insanity; crazed
Remember the movie with Cher and Nicolas Cage? There's a great scene when Cher's character suggests to Cage he's a wolf.  With an unusually full moon suspended overhead, Cage takes her to hear Puccini's "La Bohème"and her heart is won forever. I know it's an oldie, but Moonstruck is close to the top of my list of classic romantic movies.

Luminescent moonstone, antiqued olive green coin pearls, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and hammered silver links, all on stainless steel wire. 33 to 37 inches long (depending where you attach the lobster clasp. Necklace $42, Earrings $12

Love Triumphant SOLD

"The rose is the flower of love--the world has acclaimed it so for centuries. The pink roses are love hopeful and expectant--the white roses are love dead or forsaken--but the red roses--ah, Leslie, what are the red roses?"

"Love triumphant," said Leslie in a low voice.

"Yes--love triumphant and perfect. Leslie, you know--you understand. I have loved you from the first. And I know you love me--I don't need to ask you. But I want to hear you say it--my darling-- my darling!"

Leslie said something in a very low and tremulous voice. Their hands and lips met; it was life's supreme moment for them and as they stood there in the old garden, with its many years of love and delight and sorrow and glory, he crowned her shining hair with the red, red rose of a love triumphant.

Owen Ford to Leslie in Anne's House of Dreams

Gingered Toffee Crunch SOLD

I've been salivating lately over crunchy caramelized sugar. Another favorite flavor these days is ginger. It's probably time for me to make candy!

I founded these agate beads some time ago and like other beautiful beads, they often remain on the shelf until I am inspired with a winning blend of arrangement. There are days I'll lay out a pattern of beads but if it doesn't strike me with just the right blend then back on the shelf we go until voila, it's just right. A few weeks ago I think I stumbled across a winning blend! The final arrangement included natural agate, smokey quartz crystal, Swarovski crystals, creamy coin pearls, vintage bronze accents and filigree connectors. This confection is 27.5 inches long reflecting shades of golden brown, creamy white, and translucent quartz. Good enough to eat!
