Mother's Day Gift Guide from An Appealing Plan

Happy weekend! I had to share a beautiful gift guide created by Krayl Funch of An Appealing Plan.  I am so privileged that out of an abundance of submissions, she has chosen a piece from my Solitaire Collection to feature in the guide. I have my eyes on the Marie Todd "Rest" candle, the Sea Salt Goat’s Milk Soap (I have a thing for sea salt) and the Lavender Body Lotion by Wholistic Inc. I don't have children of my own, but do stepmothers count? :) Which items do you love? Have a beautiful, enjoyable weekend! xoxo, Amy Rest Candle...


London Blue Topaz Necklace - The Finished Piece

I changed my mind so many times while constructing this piece.  At first, each London blue stone was going to be separated by clusters of small, yellow sapphires...didn't like it.  Very odd, since London blue topaz and yellow sapphires are two favorites of mine.  Then, as shown in my sneak peek post, I decided to show them off in their beautiful simplicity.

I love London blue topaz...absolutely love it.  When these arrived in my shipment, I couldn't wait to use them.

Pink!

I always think it's interesting to witness a person's design process, so thought I'd share a few photos of mine.  I'll bringing this necklace with me to Barton Creek tomorrow.  It's just gorgeous in person.  I'll be there from the usual 2:00-7:00 outside of Eliza's and Bella's boutiques.

I love this part of the process. It's so satisfying.  It takes me about three to four hours to link this entire piece,...
