Celebration Time - Here's to the Red, White & Blue
There is something about summer! There is something about barbeques and picnics and fireworks on the 4th of July that just makes me feel good. I think everyone loves to get into that “happy” place where we are reminded of being young – of rolling down a summer hill in the soft grass or, weaving chains of dandelions into a crown. I used to do that by the hour (the jewelry maker in me coming out at an early age, I guess) and come home with my hands sticky and green and my crown, wilting.
Today, I spend hours “weaving” stones into celebration pieces for this joyful and meaningful time of year. Red, white and blue dominate my July collection. Lapis and pearls and garnet come together with all the exuberance of the stars and stripes in the flag and, turquoise – in its many shades of blue to green, will be added to the collection over the next couple of weeks. But right now – we’re into those patriotic colors – we’re into those designs that show off our very good taste and our deep sense of pride.
May your holidays be filled with joy – may we all remember those who made our celebration possible and, may I take this moment to thank you for your friendship and support of EarthWhorls. Wishing you all a very Happy 4th of July – and, happy shopping!!!
