SALE Section!

It's finally here... After hours of thought and months of procrastination, I gave in.

I created a SALE Section on Lush Boutique.

Want to save at least 30%? Don't kid yourself, we both know you do.

All items will be gone forever once they are purchased. If you don't buy it now, someone else will..

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!
