I just listed EIGHT new items in my Etsy shop, Serendipity Blu, to help you beautifully accessorize your summer! All jewelry is created with eco-friendly recycled glass beads. Here is the roundup:

Top Row

These are three new Beach Bum Choker. All feature woven distressed honey brown leather and are approximately 16 inches in length. From the top: new Moroccan Sunset in sultry shades of blush peach and plum: revamped Ko Samui in soft shades of seafoam and pale bottle green; and new Shabby Chic in fresh shades of frosty white and marbled blue.

Middle Row

I just ordered this beautiful new teal distressed leather and created these two brand new Betty Bracelets: Stone Harbor with pale bottle green beads and flirty daisy toggle; and Gizzy Pipe with rustic taupe and seafoam beads accented with a tribal turtle toggle. Both Betties are approximately 7 1/2 inches in length.

Bottom Row

I also revamped these three perennial favorites: Hanalei Bay with pale bottle green beads and white washed copper hibiscus; Bonzai Pipeline with aqua blue beads and silver plumeria; and Huntington Beach with true blue beads and artisan scallop shell. All three were crafted with honey brown distressed leather and are approximately 7 1/2 inches in length. Please feel free to view all of these new listings at the following sections of my Etsy shop:

This weekend literally started out with a roar…I attended a killer Soundgarden show at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City on Friday night. I started the evening off at the Irish Pub on St. James Place for dinner and a few beers. Then I spent the next two hours fondly listening to musical memories of my misspent youth. The band’s sound was tight for this reunion tour and Chris Cornell’s voice is still completely amazing. (And he is still completely hot!) They played perennial favorites such as Outshined, Rusty Cage, and Room a Thousand Years Wide from Badmotorfinger and Spoonman, Fell on Black Days, and Black Hole Sun from Superunknown. They also rocked on songs from their new album, King Animal, including By Crooked Steps, Taree, and Been Away Too Long. All in all, a solid set by a longtime favorite band!

The remainder if my weekend was pretty low key. I put together a wholesale order for a wonderful eco-friendly boutique in Larchmont, NY, REcologie. I crafted a collection of Betty Bracelets and Beach Bum Necklaces in soft summery shades: distressed honey leather and seafoam green, aqua blue, and petal pink recycled glass beads.

I also got in some amazing new buttons to use as toggles for my bracelets. I got some anchor buttons for a summery nautical look…some adorable cherry buttons for children’s bracelets I am making for a summer craft show…and a few Jimi Hendrix buttons that I will be debuting next week! Stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by!

I just listed some beautiful new necklaces for spring and summer. They are hand-woven leather in a fun choker length at 16 inches. They are also very eco-friendly as they are created with recycled glass beads. I call them “Beach Bums” because they can be worn all day at the beach (sand & salt water proof!) and take you into a breezy summer evening, whether you are wearing a flirty little dress or jeans & classic white shirt. Here is a sampling of the new collection:

Bali Bliss

This curvy bathing beauty is quite the stunner with super chunky (14-15 mm) marbled recycled glass beads from Ghana in gorgeous ocean hues of cobalt blue and seafoam green! The beads are accented with smaller (10-11 mm) Indonesian recycled glass beads in a matching shade of seafoam. They are wrapped in deep distressed brown leather, woven using a double overhand knot technique and finished with a simple toggle closure. Very boho beach chic! The full listing can be viewed here:

This delicate beach beauty begins with honey brown distressed leather, woven in a basic square knot pattern. It is complemented with soft, shimmering 8 mm petal pink Indonesian recycled glass beads and a Thai Hill Tribes silver flower pendant. It is feminine, fun and flirty, just like a perfect island bloom! More details can be viewed here:

I just listed some fresh new Betty Bracelets just in time for spring! These two toned bracelets were suggested by my friend Kim who owns Three1Seven Designs, an amazing cottage chic shop. The first one, Playa Bonita, features super chunky frosted white beads accented with smaller petal pink beads. The flamingo toggle adds a fun accent to this flirty bracelet!

This next bracelet, Washout, features icy pale green (think vintage Coke bottle) super chunky beads accented with smaller blush peach beads. The delicate color combination is reminiscent of sorbet. It is completed with a fanciful white-washed dragonfly toggle.
