Filigree and Fiddle-dee-dee to Fashion

There are lots of blogs telling you what to wear.  I won't do that.  I am going to tell you to have fun with your jewelry.

Why not?  I have fun making it.  I'm always on the look-out for interesting materials and juicy gems.  I love the hunt.

For instance, I recently found these antique brass filigrees that remind me of flowers, and combined them with gorgeous golden freshwater pearls and sundrops of citrine.  And Voila!

They'd be lots of fun, especially on someone with light-colored blonde to red hair, or short hair of any color.  Very feminine and Victorian feeling ~ like one of my favorite flowers, the fuchsia.

I have more citrine, if anyone wants a nice little necklace to go with these earrings.

GEM LORE: Pearls are very fashionable this year, but do you know they have healing properties as well?  Pearls are cooling and soothing, can help balance emotions, and symbolize purity.  They are very absorbent of whatever the wearer feels, but when pared with citrine, which deflects negativity, the energy is very balanced.


  1. Hi Claire, thanks for stopping by my blog! These earrings are beautiful! Such delicate little things, almost like a flower itself, lovely! :) I'm off to check out your writing blog now!

  2. Beautiful photos! I love pearls so its nice to know that they are loving me back!

  3. Lovely dear Claire! Remind me of tea in the garden...

  4. I'm so glad you like them, friends! I am designing a necklace to match with more citrine droplets.
