It's Nearly Summer!

I can't believe this year has been going by so fast and now it is summer! The kids are just about out of school and I have been thinking about activities for them to do so that they can keep busy and enjoy the short time they have away from next year's schoolwork! I love June especially because it still has some cool days and bits of spring still linger, but the promise of  relaxing summer days is just around the corner.
June's birthstone is Pearl and lately I have been making lots of lovelies with this gift from the sea. It is amazing that such an unattractive outer creature, the oyster, can create such beauty from within. And on top of that, the pearls can be dyed to create all sorts of beautiful colors. Here are some pieces to start off your summer season - Enjoy! Just click on the photos to access my shop.
