Sweet, sweet summertime....

What is it about the first real weeks of summer? The days are long, the sun is bright, and the breeze is warm and fragrant.  The perfumed scent of clover, blooming berry bushes, and freshly mowed grass are absolutely intoxicating! It keeps floral and botanical motifs at the forefront of my design sketch book. Leaves, branches, twigs, but configured in light, airy, and layerable designs.  Because it is summer I tend toward lighter pieces. If it is a warm, humid day I want the option of choosing a delicate piece or two that won't lay heavy and sticky. Something simple and delicate.  Something that will make me think of icy lemonade, a cold glass of iced tea, or maybe some of the Fever Tree Elderflower tonic I have chilling....With a splash of gin, of course. Better yet, watch the tutorial for Fever Tree's "Endless Summer" Cocktail. Oh my.....One of these and a screened in porch are all you need for a lazy summer evening. You are very welcome!!  But back to the jewelry....

I am also thinking of the classic pairing of turquoise and coral. A go-to summer color combination that is so magical against sunkissed skin.

I've been busy designing pieces that fit my current design criteria and I will have them at the Ligonier Country Market on Saturday, June 13th...Here is a little preview:

Have you been to the Ligonier Country Market this summer? The layout has been revamped and it is organized more cohesively.  The market is at capacity every weekend and the vendors are so accomplished! What a selection of gorgeous flowers, organic small farm vegetables, fabulous baked goods, talented jewelry artists and artisans....So many friendly faces!  It is always fun to return to that welcoming and supportive community. The weather is supposed to be gorgeous on Saturday, so please drop by and pick up some fresh and delicious weekend dinner ingredients and maybe something sparkly to accent an earlobe, drip from a wrist, or glisten around your neck in the sunshine....

Wishing you safe travels and warm breezes!

Salute! Cin cin!
