Yes, diamonds are forever, they'll always be a girls best friend and every girl wants a rock as big as a diamond (or is it a diamond as big as a rock...). It's a harsh economy baby and only the heartless are flashing their family jewels right now.
For Spring and Summer 2009, "bigger is better", and the more wood, plastic, metal and rhinestones, the more current you are! This month take a look at some of my newest jewelry, pieces that scream "color!", "fun!", "lightweight" and affordable :)
Lots of information, Enjoy!

Back row: Desert Stones bangles; Left: silk "purse" purse mirror ($5.00); Center: strawberry cake! Just kidding, a cotton terry washcloth, ($7.50 ea.) isn't it the cutest? And Right: a crystallized purse-sized retractable tape measure which is available in a myriad of colors ($12.50). So many more gifts for $30.00 and under, stop in and say hello to Brenda.

Dear Readers: I want you to know how much I value the time you take from your busy day to read my blog. I'm always interested in your comments and insights, on my jewelry and/or my blog in general. Your opinions are valuable to me and all feedback is welcome.
I'm very happy to answer any questions you may have about my pieces, or your own pieces, and also any questions you may have about current trends in ladies ready-to-wear.
I would like to add more "go to" websites on my side bar. If you know of a self-representing artist and they have a website, please feel free to let me know and I'll take a look. I'm particularly interested in local artists, Palm Springs to Coachella.
P.S.- Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine, Page 76, it's me! Yaay!
