A piece of work! These earrings were a gift from a good friend who knows that I like mixing something old with something new and a preference for pieces that can be worn with everything from jeans to a cocktail dress.

This pair is perfect because they go with everything and they don’t bother my overly sensitive ears one bit.  Even my diamond studs which have a tiny amount of nickel in the backings bother my ears.jewelry2

The designers make each piece by hand by incorporating new ideas and they use simple tools with old recyclable materials from scrap metals like aluminum, sterling, brass or copper sourced from their various travels.  Some feature landscapes of the West and the like.

What a coincidence that just last year I bought two pairs at the outdoor VillageFest which takes place every Thursday evening in downtown Palm Springs.

Re-Fresh Friday

Ready for the Weekend?  Happy 4th of July to my American friends and relatives.

Changes are good.  I decided to change Friday to a fuss free day (kind of like dress down Fridays) for something fresh & different.  It will still be personal but it might be a photo (or photos), a story or a suggestion from a reader or fellow blogger.  I won’t know until it’s Friday.

something all us women/girls of all ages love…..BLING!

These photos I took from a little gem of a shop called “House of Jewels” where my last four pairs of earrings, a gold-fill bracelet and a really cute striped t-shirt came from.
