Water never looked so good

Instead of grabbing a bottled water every time you need a sip of H2O, why not take advantage of a reusable water bottle? I'm totally guilty of tossing empty bottles of water all the time, but I'm pretty sure that I could break the habit. Especially after I discovered this super cool water bottle from SIGG. Nothing beats fashionable and functional, right?

Sneak Peek - Blue Bell Necklace

I figured I'd go with a sneak peek today since I haven't done one in a while. A few weeks ago, I took a day trip out to the Quartzsite Gem Show, and I found these super cool carved turquoise magnesite flower beads and thought that they would be a fabulous focal piece for an opera length necklace on fine rope chain. Along with some other lovely items, this week I will be adding this carved blue bell flower necklace to the site. And for those of you who aren't huge fans of gold, you are most certainly in luck. I will also be adding a sterling silver version as well.

On the Edge

I found this gorgeous, curvy satchel from Isabelle Fiore a while and was in pure lust. The stylized tattoo, the gold studs, and shape are a really cool combination. I just love it!

Crystal Comforts

Hello everyone, and a belated Happy New Year! I hope your festivities were more eventful than mine. I was up in Portland, Oregon with the full intent of attending a Prince vs. Michael Jackson DJ battle to ring in the new year, but unfortunately my plans were foiled. My husband and I ended up with the flu. At the very least, though, we camped out in style in our fabulous room at The RiverPlace Hotel and watched bad TV and had room service. What more can you ask for? Besides tissues, that is ;)
So let's get down to it, then, shall we? I began gathering a nice collection of interesting crystal beads a while ago, and ended up with several gorgeous pieces. After getting back from vacation, I finally added them to the site. A particular favorite is this lush and long sterling silver necklace that features a purely voluptuous faceted crystal drop pendant. The necklace itself it 30" long, and the pendant is about 1" x 3/4". I just love it! It goes with anything, and will always have a place in my personal collection. Simply put, this piece rocks!
