Winner Announced and Lilies are Blooming!!!

The winner of the silver needle agate necklace is Kristi Bowman! Congratulations!!! I hope you love your beautiful new necklace!!!

My lilies are in bloom! So many colors!!! These orange lilies are from my parent’s garden which they gave me a few years ago.

My neighbor gave me tons of bulbs last summer when he was cleaning his garden.

So I planted them and waited patiently until this summer to enjoy them.

I love the variety of colors!

I also love their hardiness since I have been so busy this summer and have not spent time gardening. Hence a lot of weeds out there!!!

I made these sweet dangle earrings for my hairstylist. I gave her a fabulous pink cats eye necklace with a super large butterfly pendant for Christmas and she just requested matching earrings. I would love to make these for my shop but since the cost of silver is still out of control they would be too expensive. I like to keep my prices affordable to everyone!

New this week is this adorable set. The focal piece is of carved bone with a beautiful nature scene. Available here!

Thank you for reading! Until next week!!! ~Val
