But tomorrow we flip the page on the calendar and summer becomes "late summer" and August conjures thoughts of school and those last warm weather vacations before fall. This is when I find myself inspired to make pieces that transition nicely into the next season, and the metal I love for this is gold....with a cool stone. Gold looks magical against summer skin but the cool stone carries us into cooler weather. This is what I'm talking about:
Then again, there is so much fun left to wring out of summer...Something playful and bright might be just the thing. I typically make color block bracelets, but I decided to color block a necklace with all sorts of fabulous faceted stones, I love the look of this boho style piece tucked in the neckline of a crisp white blouse.....I think I'll be making one of these for myself and my Market helper (tomorrow it is Marlee). I envision it with the slim white boyfriend shirt from Madewell...My new source for fashion inspiration. Here is the necklace (two are pictured)
It is longer (22inches) and allows for a simple metal necklace to be layered above....Stop by and see what we mean!
I'll be at the Ligonier Country Market tomorrow, August 1st. This really is the peak of the produce season for the farmers and I can't wait to see what they have to offer tomorrow!
