Lovely Weddings

I had the wonderful chance to do a few custom pieces for the beautiful Audrey's wedding. She wanted her bridesmaid to have a necklace that matched her personality, and pearls just would not do. She ordered a custom-length gold wire-ball necklace, and her bridesmaid looked fabulous!

..And a picture of the bride and groom. Isn't this picture GORGEOUS??? ahhhhh I love weddings!

What's On Your Christmas List?

Here are a few of the new items I've added this week..

The Breckenridge

This necklace reminds me of an icy {but very chic} wintery day. Cool lilac chalcedony drops are wire wrapped onto silver gunmetal chain.

Isn't it lovely? The faceted lilac drops are extraordinarily large.

Handmade Highway

The giveaway is up at the Handmade Highway...

The winner gets 8 goodies valued at $108.00.

Like I said earlier, there's a pretty good chance of winning this one... so enter today!!

Pillow Talk

Oh Labradorite - such a dreamy stone. Puffed pillows of sensuous labradorite are individually wire wrapped to form an extra-long necklace. Perfect for that holiday party you have been so giddy planning. (invite me).

Pearl Daisies

Oh wow today has been busy! I spent all day emailing other blogs looking for a little publicity (I'm needy) and by the afternoon I needed some down-time. I decided to get a little creative and ended up with these little beauties... after about the fifth attempt.

Those first four were u.g.l.y. - heaps of mangled wire and pearls. I might post pictures of those later if my self-esteem is high enough :)

Layering Necklaces

Chains and layering necklaces are extremely popular right now, so I thought I would post a few of my faves!

The Martini

Which one is your favorite? Have you seen other necklaces you love?

The Contessa

Husband and I were driving home from IKEA today (not the best place for our marriage) when he decided to stop and get his hair cut. Luckily for me, we stopped right by a bead store.

While waiting, I picked up the materials to make these.

And I am so glad I did! They are fabulous.

Gorgeous swarovski crystals twinkle above brass filigree drops. Want a pair of your own?

Chunky Monkey

This necklace is absolute perfection. HUGE beads of turquoise (20mm in size!) are handknotted on matching silk thread for a little luxe and a lot of flexibility.

It really is such a gorgeous necklace - and it's a steal too!

Jade & Opalite

Opalite is an earthy stone that is absolutely gorgeous! I paired it with a lovely yellow jade flower and it sold in 8 minutes. New record.

So I made another one. So pretty!

New Favorite

I know, I know. Every time I make a necklace it becomes my new favorite.

The beads on this necklace are so gorgeous and sparkly, and are each hand knotted on chocolate silk thread.

Yellow Chalcedony

Yellow is one of my favorite colors and I love to wear it year-round. Pastel yellow in the springtime, bright yellow in the summer, and this gorgeous mustard yellow in the fall.

Here are two different necklaces made with breathtaking gems of yellow chalcedony:

Which one is your favorite? Do you prefer daintier necklaces or statement pieces?

... And We're Back

Thank you everyone for the well wishes and a BIG thank you to those who turned a blind eye to my drug-induced texts and messages and simply hit 'delete'. It was a hard time for all of us.

So many beautiful turquoise items are new to Lush Boutique, so I might as well lump them into one post since I am so great at consistently posting (harhar).

I'd love to hear your feedback - all of it!

I might be MIA for a few days.. I'm having the ole wisdom teeth removed in the morning and heaven knows I shouldn't have contact with anyone while on painkillers.

Lush Boutique will still be online - of course - so shop your little heart away while I drown my sorrows in Jamba Juice, yogurt, and milkshakes.

Wish me luck!

Yikes. I may have gotten a little ring happy...

Too bad I love every single one.

Copper and Turquoise

Copper is my favorite metal for fall, and I just love it with turquoise!

Are you a copper, silver or gold person? I'm usually a silver person, but I love the copper!

Falling for Amethyst

I made this and now I love this.

I'm going to the store tomorrow to buy the materials to make my very own.

Lapis Lazuli

I love these little blue gems - they have flecks of gold pyrite in them that look fab.
