Wildflowers are the Inspiration for May’s New Products

What's New in May?

Volume 10 Issue 5, May 2013

The warm sun is starting to spend more time with us during the late afternoon hours. The water is starting to warm up in the pond, and the ducks are will clip_image002be showing off their newborns in no time at all. The robins have been singing in the morning, and the red winged blackbird has been talking to me during the day.


All these signs of spring are exciting and now, I am waiting on the mountain wildflowers to start their journey up from the ground. The wildflowers have been on my mind lately as I have designed a lot of new beads. I love the wild irises that  are scattered all over the sides of the paths, and I have used that color combination in more than one new piece of jewelry.


These lovely little irises were taken a couple of springs ago, but I know that they will be spreading more color across the side of the Bridger trails in the days to come. I have not had a chance to get out and do any real hiking yet this spring, but we are having a nice warm spring day today, so I might just head out to a trail.

I have been enjoying the creation of a lot of smaller beads lately, and these little beads made their  way into this chacha bracelet design.I also used these beads in a three strand necklace that would be perfect for Mother’s Day.




New Beads: Bright colored flowers and some crazy geometric shapes are

showing up in my flower canes these days. They have made their way into

some of my newest beads.

Pushpins: New product in a variety of fun shapes and designs.

Necklaces: Lots of new necklaces are making their way into my studio just

in time for Mother’s Day! Lots of color and splash!
