Feather Love Affair


Here's an "ensemble" Denise made one day while I wasn't looking using the silver feather chain.  I loved it, tried it on, did a photo shoot with it, loved it some more, showed it to one customer and was gone.  The whole set, sold.  I am sad.  Dear Denise, will you make another kinda-like this please?  Thanks.  Your feather lovin sista.

Hot 60's Hats

When I was stocking some more beachy jewelry at Detour the other day, I noticed these hats that I LOVE!

They are called Hill Tribe 60's Hats and come in a variety of patterns... I kept imagining pool parties in the new hat, with white rimmed sunglasses and a classy two piece bikini, you know, sort of 60's. Remember the pool parties in the Catch Me If You Can and Austin Powers kind of films?  Didn't it seem like they just had so much more fun?  Can bright colors put you in a better mood?

Anyway, I felt compelled to get one since this June into July gloom is bound to burn off eventually.

How To Layer It Up

Our new Bohemian Collection has many long necklaces that are great for layering.  Here are a few tips on how to layer.  

  1. Start with a basic short piece that sits on your chest.  Length should be 16", 18" or 20".  
  2. Then add one or two longer pieces with different textures and styles.
  3. The middle layer can be  24" or 36".  
  4. A good length for the longest is 42". Much longer and it gets caught on things!  
These are standard necklace lengths, you may already own a basic necklace to get this look started!  

This is one of our favorite summer looks and the Bohemian Collection has many options.  Go online and explore the possibilities!

Mercato Moment

Pink, Purple, Teal

I just couldn't resist taking a shot of these cute toes!  I love the new summer colors...mine are painted aqua blue right now and really complemented this trio!  These girls stopped and wondered where the sun was!  They walked away with a new summer wrist wrap that will always remind them of their Little Italy Mercato visit.  Thanks for the moment!

Artful Wedding

Denise and I attended a wedding on Saturday...our beloved Tracy, who helps us manage our online marketing, blogging, face booking and more, married her sweet Luke.  It was held on a beautiful grassy greenbelt, looking out onto a lake.  

So many handmade touches.  Her mom Marie, made her redesigning her own and incorporating some of her mom's!  She blogs about this and her experience attempting to tackle Luke's vest too.

The girls wore custom LilyGirl wire initial and flower pendants, of course!
AND...Tracy wore cute lime green sandals and hot pink toes!

The head table.  Hand painted rocks!

Tracy and Luke, we wish you a long happy life together, and may you always love and cherish special moments with family and friends.  Thank you for sharing the beginning of your journey with us! XOXO

Beach Town Style

Detour Salon is in one of our favorite beach towns, Encinitas, CA. Yesterday we just installed our newest collection of beach inspired jewelry.  To exhibit our coastal creations, we handcrafted aqua blue displays for the shop.

What do you see when you look at these pieces? We used natural materials like wood, abalone, mother of pearl, turquoise and shell to bring about our visions of waves and sea horses.

This special collection was made just for our dear friends at Detour, so if you want to see it just stop by while you're strolling around.

But we know not everyone can just hit the beach, especially when you live far away.  Sooooooo, we'll just have to have a SURPRISE GIVEAWAY!  Tell us what you love about the beach by commenting on the Beach Town Wrist Wrap picture on our facebook page and we'll pick a randomn winner on Monday to receive it!
