Beaded Bliss compliments of Starsong

Nancy has made some STUNNING new Starsong jewelry
so I decided to take a break from work and play dress up this week!
I picked a few favorites to show you.

Every Starsong creation is hand-crafted, by Star Sosa and Nancy Noel May, right here at Spectrum Art & Jewelry. They travel the world to hand-select the exotic gems, pearls, art glass, silver , gold and vermeil that are blended together in their one-of-a-kind designs! They are also the perfect Christmas gift! Looking for a certain color or style that you can't find? That's not a problem. We will make whatever your heart desires!

Here's a closer look at the necklaces:

Peridot and Pyrite knotted necklace
(In a variety of colors and gemstones)

White freshwater pearls
Gray Pearls
Peacock pearls
(3 necklaces can be worn separate
or together as pictured above)

White freshwater pearls
with quartz and SS Bail

Gold Fill Chain with pearls
and multicolor gemstones

Turquoise and SS Beads

Multicolored pearls

Aquamarine and
multicolor pearls
(Can be worn multiple ways,
two ways pictured above)


Tis' the season

I can't believe it's November already! As the holiday's approach I get more and more excited about all of the wonderful things to come...time with family, the smell of Christmas trees, twinkling lights, great food, gift giving, warm fires and more!

Despite all of the excitement of the next two months the thought of all of the preparations, cooking, shopping and gift buying can seem like an ominous task. Although nothing can truly quench my excitement all of the preparations threaten to distract my focus from what really matters during this season.

So in honor of a simple, peaceful and joy filled season I will be dedicating the majority of the blog posts for the next month or so to holiday ideas. The hope is to make your life more simple this season with things like recipes and gift ideas!

I would love and appreciate any ideas, recipes and holiday tips that you have; please post them on the "The Daily Sketch"!
