Gemstone Bangle Bliss

Well it is time to start working on the fall collection.  I just love these bangles that I have been working on!  They are stunning by themselves or create a bold look by stacking several together!  Gemstones are painstakingly wrapped onto a hand forged heavy sterling silver cuff bracelet.

Lovely Iolite!

 Flashy Labradorite!

Garnet,  perfect for the fall!

Multi Gemstone.  Perfect with jeans or that special evening gown.

Black Garnet!

Outdoor Living Spaces

It's that time of year again.  To grab a great book and step outside and enjoy the great spring weather.  I just met with a client yesterday and she was wanting to upgrade her patio table.  When people think of the outdoors they always seem to think of patio tables and chairs.  There are so many great options out on the market now to create a cozy seating area that you will be comfortable and you will want to use.

Let's Get Organized!

So it was rainy outside today so I spent the day cleaning and organizing my office.  I seem to always be able to think better when everything has a place. However, organizing all those crafts supplies can be such a daunting task.  Here are some clever ways to organize those items around your house.  When things are organized and easy to find you will use them more often and avoid those trips to the store to buy something you already have!

2013 Jewelry Trends

It is the new year and time to look ahead to see what the jewelry trends will be for 2013.

Emerald will be the color for spring 2013 according to Pantone's color fashion report

Simple drop earrings will be very popular for 2013.   This simple style of earring will be easy to coordinate with any style for spring.

Druzy pendants will remain very popular for 2013.  I love their organic form and those framed in gold are very chic.  Druzy's come in wide range of colors.

Easy Peasy Fudge

 

Yesterday I shared my easy chocolate peanut butter nut cups recipe. Today I will share an easy fudge recipe with you! Believe me, if I can make this you can too.  Let's get started.

Here is what you will need:


Easy Peasy Fudge
3 cups sugar
1 and 1/2 sticks of butter
16 oz of semi sweet chocolate
1 7oz jar of marshmallow cream 
1 can (5oz) evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
nuts if you like

The first thing you need to do is line your dish with foil

In a medium sauce pan bring your sugar, butter and milk to a rolling boil and stir it constantly.  Once it starts to boil set your timer for 4 min and continue boiling and stirring.

Now that you have boiled everything and stirred it constantly for 4min (and I know your arm is about to fall off!)  remove it from the heat and add your chocolate and marshmallow cream.  Stir until everything is all melted.  Now add your vanilla.  You would also add your nuts at this time if you like.  I personally do not like nuts in my fudge.

 Now pour it into your pan and let it set up.  Just a tip, I usually cut mine before they are completely set.  It makes for easier cutting. 
 
YUM YUM!!! Enjoy!

Remember to save some for yourself because this is what the plate will look like once your family and friends get a hold of these babies!
