Jewelry of the Day (or week, rather)

It's time to share more "Jewelry of the Day" shots.

Last week was pretty much all about pearls.
No surprise for you there. 
I mean, when is it not about pearls for me, right?

Even though my day-job is based out of my home, I still dress for work. I'm always pretty casual (jeans or long skirts can be seen most days) but I come to work 'put together' and of course that means jewelry.

I used to wear the same jewelry day in and day out, but for the past several months I've been wearing more of the jewelry that's in my collection (mine and other designers) and trying different styles and colors to see what works and what doesn't for me. 
It's been fun and a bit of an eye-opener, too.
I am still very much a 'Plain Jane' though.
Not straying too far from my 'jewelry comfort zone'.
If you care to follow along, you can catch me on Instagram
(thank you Samantha!!).
I've also got a Jewelry of the Day board over on Pinterest.
And then there's always Facebook.
You'll catch shots there every once in a while, too.
I really gotta quit messing around w/overlays, etc. on Pixlr! LOL!!
Please, join in the fun and post pics back.
I'd love to see what Jewelry you're wearing for the day!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Pearls, Baby!!

Hidden in the Hills - Studio Tour

I just wanted to give a shout out to all those here in Arizona and let you know that the 17th Annual Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour and Sale is happening again this weekend, November 29th, 30th and December 1st.
Presented by the  Sonoran Arts League, this Favorite Fall Event spotlights artists of all mediums in and around the Carefree, Cave Creek and North Scottsdale areas. 
The self-guided tour of 46 studios and 168 working artists is a staple each fall in this area the weekends before and after Thanksgiving.
This exciting event provides a unique art experience allowing you the opportunity to interact with the artists and see first hand their creative process. 
This is the perfect outing for the family, art enthusiasts and serious collectors and gives you the chance to view and purchase many of these phenomenal items.
And, best of all, it's free! 
I have three very talented friends who are studio #18 this year on the tour and I wanted to show you a glimpse into their studio show and creative world!

I can't even begin to tell you how talented these three women are. Their work as jewelry artists is incredible, but they do so much more than jewelry, and man is their art superb!!
From glass to metal, casting to sculptures,...these innovative women have more talent in their little pinky fingers than I could ever hope to possess. Yes,...I am in awe of them. Rightly so. Take a look:

Their studio this year is located at Pat's Desert Jewel Studio in Cave Creek. 
I'm just happy to get to see their creations first hand.
And touch things,....yes I fondled their wares!
And drooled!
So, after you've stuffed your belly with some good turkey and fought the rush of crowds in the big box stores, do yourself and your family a favor,....go check out all the artist participating in Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour this year.
Shop Local. Shop Small Business.
Shop Handmade (True Handmade!) 
Keep The Creative Arts Alive!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Enjoying the Arts!
