Surprise Inspiration

5 years ago I began a jewelry making business called "L Designs". I was somewhat short lived but sucessful while I had it. The reason I stopped was because I was making things that would sell but unable to make what I would wear.   I flocked to my favorite accessories location, Anthropologie and purchased what I wanted but couldn't make. Please would say "Ohh! That is beautiful...Did you make it?" I would have to answer "no". 

But now I have been inspired to try again. I came across Cheryl's blog while enjoying one of my favorite linking parties and I gasped at how cool it was. This is what I saw.

As it happens in life, I was in the middle of packing up my beading stuff in preparation for our upcoming move. I immediately grabbed my stuff and feverishly tried to recreate what she made. Mine is less of a nest-like structure and more of an abstract piece because my wire was bigger than what she suggested. However...I am in LOVE with my new pendant. Take a look!
I have now made 3 more. I can't stop! 

I am now dreaming of the jewelry pieces I can bring to Carter's Cottage. Yay!

Visit my etsy store or my weekly favorites.


  1. Oh! How pretty! Let me know when you have jewelry at Carter's and I'll stop in to see/buy it!

  2. Ooh, I like it. I really like the abstractness of it.

  3. I like it very much! you are so very creative...just my style too
