The weather has been beautiful in Colorado as spring comes tip-toeing in. Chilly at night, but sunny during the day with forget-me-nots, daffodils and forsythia just beginning to emerge.
Tomorrow is the first official day of my Trunk Show with Artful Home- both online, and in their paper catalog which will be sent to homes throughout the US. I have been working for the past two months on the one-of-a-kind pieces that are featured, and it’s all very exciting. We have done very well with Artful Home’s rewards preview on Thursday, which bodes well for the rest of the show.
Yesterday the weather in Boulder was strangely warm and beautiful. Heavenly, in fact. My husband and I ventured forth on a two hour bike ride along trails and then went east towards the reservoir. The cerulean blue of the water against the copen blue of the sky was almost too much to take.
Stopping in to get coffee on a busy Saturday, I was struck by the beauty of this arrangement. In its polka dot planter, a little label credited its artistry to “Fiori”, my most favorite floral designers in Boulder.
These little Teepee earrings are made with hammered Sterling silver and wrapped wire, accented with a little glass beaded bead that I wove. They are fun and very light. I realize that the kinds of earrings that I like to wear involve a kind of simplicity. I’m not about ornate earrings. It’s actually harder to design simple, clean, funky earrings in beadwork than it is ornate, elaborate work. I’m not about fussy.
