Miss Layla in MiShel Designs Pearls!
Why yes, Little Miss Layla is totally rockin' some gorgeous pearls!
Thank you for noticing.

But then,
she's been rockin' pearls
since she was just a baby!!
I've had some people ask questions regarding how to integrate pearls into their jewelry designs and what to do if you'd like to LOS your pearl and metal/wirework piece but don't want to harm your pearls and things of this nature.
Freya Pendant - Blackened Silver with Pearls and Turquoise
I'll be doing a blog post early next week that addresses some of these issues so that you'll have it for some guidance and I'm hoping it will help spark your interest in using pearls in many different ways.

Because remember, even though the pieces I will create will be jewelry related ('cause that's what I do!), you're not limited to just creating jewelry with your pearls - you can crochet mittens decked out in pearls or knit a lovely scarf with pearl dangles (gosh, I wish I could do either of these!!) or you can create some cool wine charms with pearl dangles, be-deck your wine glass or your sunglasses even - you name it! 
Nicholas Kirkwood's Pearl Laced Satin Pumps - via Pinterest - are totally awesome!
Just get your pearls out and have some fun!
In the meantime, hop on over to my
for bits and pieces of inspiration to get you in the
"Pearl Designing" Mood, okay?!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Pearls, Baby!!

Pearls! Pearls!! Pearls!!! Blog Hop

*Sign ups for the blog hop are now closed*

Are you ready to ROCK SOME PEARLS?!
I am! (Always!)
So, let's have some fun and do a PEARLS blog hop. 
(Like, y'all didn't know that was coming sooner or later, right?!)
Okay, here's the Scoop:
1) Gotta have a Blog to post the reveal on.
2) Make something (doesn't have to be jewelry *Gasp!*) with pearls in it. A lot of pearls, a few pearls - your choice. 
3) They can be real pearls (freshwater, saltwater, Tahitian, South Sea) or imitation (Swarovski, Czech glass, plastic, shell pearls, etc.)
4) What you create can be any style or pay homage to any era/age/region, etc. (i.e. Modern, Ancient, Rustic, Vintage, Boho, Cottage-Chic, Cowgirl, Southwestern, New-England Classic-Stuffy, Trendy, Art-Deco, Tribal, Beachy, Glam, Grunge, Goth, etc.) You name - you can make it!
5) Post the reveal of your creation(s) on Sunday, September 15th, 2013 on your blog and come here to see the list of participants and hop around and see what everyone has created. (I'll do the Inlinkz thingy so it's easy for people to link up and hop around, okay?)
6) Mention WHERE you got your pearls in your post and why you like to shop there - and provide a link if you have one - so that way, we can all shop for pearls after the hop!
*If you've had your pearls for years and/or can't remember where you scored them, or if they were gifted to you or something like this, that's fine - just mention that in your post.
That's it!
Sign up: Now through Sunday, August 25th.
