Beaded Wrap Bracelets

Beaded Wrap Bracelets have been such a popular item in my Jewelry Collection.  They are so versatile, they can be dressed up or down.  You can where them as a bracelet or a long necklace or even a belt.  These bracelets will wrap around most wrists either 4 or 5 times.  Here are a few that I have just added to the line. 

  To find out more information about each piece go to the Beaded Wrap Bracelets section of my etsy shop.

Bohemian Fashion

Don't you just lovefree-flowing fashion and design that shows self-expression?  It's called Bohemian Style!
It's a casual mix of hippie, ethnic, gypsy, vintage and eclectic elements. Many stars like Sienna Miller, Mischa Barton, Kate Moss and Nicole Richie have a new and fresh twist on the bohemian style with glam and glitter.  If you enjoy the bohemian style, that is GREAT!  The boho style is considered a "state of mind"  rather than a fashion trend so it will never go out of style.

Your Wardrobe Essentials for the Bohemain Style are:

1. Bohemian style is about layering, layering, layering
2. Smock dresses
3. Leggings
4. Long flowy skirts
5. Long vests, waistcoats, cardigans
6. Eclectic accessories
7. Vintage

Here are some amazing items I came
across on Etsy, the site for all things handmade & vintage.  Why
these?  Well, hippie, bohemian, free-spirit fashion can be different,
creative, colorful, inventive, unique, sophisticated, or
anything in between so I wanted to choose items that showcased diversity in the
hippie, bohemian, and free-spirit wardrobe.


I love this skirt from Bohemienne Ivy .  The fun flirty spirit makes this bohemian for sure!

Beautiful Scarf from madeformebyoaklie

Suede boots from 20TwentyVintage 

CoCo French Vintage Chocolate leather purse from Dandeliondaydreamer 

And finally, you have got to have a little PEACE in your bohemian wardrobe!

Happy First Day of Fall and Autumnal Equinox.

Happy first day of fall and Autumnal Equinox!  The evenings will now come sooner and the air will cool more quickly.  The leaves will begin to change their color, crops will start to be harvested, those fun fall festivals will begin, and animals will start their move to their new winter homes.  Welcome fall it is so good to see you!  After the driest and hottest summer on record I so welcome you.  The door is open, please come in and stay a while!

The Creative Color, Violet

Violet is a combination of blue and red. Red is a focusing, dynamic and active energy while blue is cooling, calming and expansive. Violet brings a new dynamic to the expansion of blue and the activity of red. Red brings practicality to the undirected expansiveness of the blue, and allows more creative energy to emerge. For this reason, violet is associated with imagination and inspiration.  Violet is uplifting and calms the mind and nerves.  I knew there was a reason why I like the color Violet!
