Wild Things!

Purple Butterfly, Oh My!


Again using the Color Purple Swarovski assortment of pearls, I surrounded a silver butterfly pin with the pearls & purple and silver crystals.  The silver collar can be adjusted to fit one’s neck.  The earrings and necklace set is $40.  It will be available at the Carlyle Wine and Art Festival this weekend, August 18 & 19, in Carlyle Illinois.

Under the Tuscan Sun Crystal Clusters

One of the Crystal Cluster necklace, earrings, and bracelet sets I made this weekend –

I placed Swarovski crystal element pearls around an antique marquisite pin (bought at the Elsah, Illinois, historical society sale) with a crystal dragonfly and butterfly – the color assortment was named “Under the Tuscan Sun” and includes beautiful autumn shades of warm golds, greens, coppers, and ivory.  Necklace, bracelet, & earrings $50 for the set.

This will be one of my crystal clusters available this weekend at the Wine and Art Festival at the Bretz Winery near Carlyle Lake, Illinois:
