Spotlight - On Our Side

Spotlight on the On Our Side earrings!

I feel like I create a lot of things, but never really get a chance to explain why I make them and why I name them certain ways.... So I'm going to do a Spotlight on certain pieces so you can get a peek into my brain.  :D

This earring design came to me after I had been doing inventory and I realized that I had a bunch of really funky jewelry, but lacked simpler pieces with just a little less sass.  In case there are people out there who aren't as sassy as me....  Or less flashy.  (Note: I can be a bit of a diva. I admit my faults.)

They are still a little long at 2 inches from the earhook, so they have substance, but are sleek since they only have the one strand of the two beads.  I picked four colors that I thought looked amazing next to the antique brass beads and findings.  They translucent beads look amazing, I think.

The name came from a song.  You may have heard it- Time is on my Side by The Rolling Stones! I had this song stuck in my head for a week. It was driving me bonkers, but it fit the earrings.  The vintage feel, but they really won't go out of style.... Time is on your side with these guys.  :D

Ok, back to being a slug on this lazy Sunday! 
Have a great weekend!

Knittin' Pretty

I've been knitting like a crazy woman lately!  I'm definitely trying to get a line of baby girl sweaters out and it's coming along nicely. I can't wait to show them off, but for now, here are a bunch of fun knit and crochet things I've made.  They are soon to be on my site!

This cowl is sold, but I have more colors coming soon!

This is a fun green and silver crocheted cowl.

My new favorite yarn!  So much texture!

A nice slouchy hat!

Crazy soft cowl with two buttons!

Just a little something...

Lately I feel like I've just been knitting and knitting.... Like I'm obsessed.  I'm ok with that, but my hands hate me some days. :P

Just wanted to share this cowl I've been working on.  It's knit with one strand of acrylic and one strand of a metallic, variegated blend.  I love the solid beige with the color mixed in... and add some sparkle, so it's perfect!

Also, I have been working on a line of baby girl sweaters.  I'm just working on designs now and you have to start from scratch, so one down, three in process (mostly in my head).  This 3/4 sleeve, cropped cardi just needs buttons and it'll be done!

New jewelry is on my Etsy site too..  I just have had no time to blog to share it all! I do seem to be able to facebook more, so if you want more updated info, check me out there- !

I think that's it for now...  Time to go knit!
