As I've said ... water inspires me. So lately I've been working with blue. I felt like making a really long necklace and after a particularly nice hike this is what I came up with:

My neighbor has this lake on her property... she doesn't mind if I come over to get inspired :D

Polymer Clay

I've been experimenting with polymer clay lately, and just fired some things today. I think they turned out alright and I actually ended up making earrings out of some of the pieces. Here are the results:

They can be found in my Etsy shop. Just listed them. Please check them out as well as all of my other goodies :D

In Need of a Vacation

Lately I've been wanting to go somewhere tropical.

I think it's reflected in a lot of my work lately. I love working with shells and making clusters of them on earrings. Natural beauty is the best kind.

These earrings can be found in my etsy shop:


My main inspiration for my creations is nature. I love water and beaches.

I can't sit in front of a tv for more than about an hour a day (hopefully not even that). I'd much rather be outside.

First Post!

Hello and greetings to all!

My name is Natalie. I go to college in Chicago for English and Psychology. I have been making jewelry for a few years now and have just recently started up an Etsy shop! So please do check it out.

Here is an example of my work:

I plan on updating this bloggy with my inspirations, frustrations and the like about my jewelry/the jewelry making process.

I'm looking to meet people/make friends and connections so please stop by and say hello!
