Lucite in the Sky with Diamonds
Has the extreme heat got you feeling so hot and sticky that you are seriously considering not wearing jewelry? (The horror!) "I just want something light," you say, "Something nice and light that won't make me feel hot."
Well - this week we have, just for you, a fabulous selection of light and airy lucite flowers and leaves. You can stay inside in the air conditioning and build yourself a glorious garden to wear.
And when I say fabulous selection - I mean - this is our biggest update EVER - with 300 new sizes, shapes and colours!
So we have Lucite flowers - and we've roughly sorted them by size, like these large Fluted Trumpets or the elegant Wake Robin.
Then we have the itty bitty flowers - like tiny coloured stars scattered across a meadow of wild flowers.
And then we have the ones in between - medium. And yes - we have them in black, in case the multiple shades of pink are not your cup of tea!
All of which reminds me of the joke about the escaped dwarf psychic convict - police issued an alert for a "small medium, at large."
Anyway - if you "beleaf" you want some leaves - we have leaves!
Yep - we have large leaves, like these Curved Lanceolate Leaves, and these truly elegant, art deco Lalique Leaves.
Or these sizeable Hydrangea Leaves! Think of the lovely pair of earrings these would make - large, showy, and light enough to wear all evening!
Course, we have small leaves too, to bundle into masses with the tiny flowers.
And, anything that was neither obviously large or obviously small, must be "medium," right? ;-)
If you want to "leaf" the garden behind - perhaps you would be inspired by a walk on the beach?
We also have new resin beads from Natural Touch - in some wonderfully random pebble and rock shapes that look enticingly like little treasures of tumbled glass picked up while strolling on the beach. But without the sunburn, sandflies and rotting seaweed. I'm thinking a bunch of stretchy bracelets - so the question is, monochromatic or mix up the colours?
Actually - if you are thinking a mix of colours and shapes would be fun and inspiring - check out these random mixes in juicy colour combinations.
Still resin - but a different look - instead of the tumbled, soft matt look - these beads are glossy and have swirls of white marbled into the colour.
Other interesting resin beads include these big rings - which could be a big link in a necklace, with some beads strung inside, or these puff coins, bracelet anyone?
