Memorial Day weekend is here, and that means its the unofficial kickoff of summer. The weather is getting warmer, the landscape is greener and summer is right around the corner. (It just can't seem to get here soon enough).
With summer coming that means a new designs for the occasion. I've been working on a few new things especially for summer. My favorite so far is a peace sign design "slip necklace" which I absolutely love. The first one I made I loved so much I ended up wearing it myself before taking photographs of it. I was going out and wanted something just right to wear and it fit perfectly. I've been wearing it every day since, along with a similar bracelet that I've been wearing for about two weeks now. So needless to say some peace sign designs will definitely be popping up soon.
My next favorite thing is "Heavy Metal". I end up with lots of scrap chain and I've began creating "Heavy Metal" designs out of those scraps. They are basically a mix of random chains in various styles and colors.
I will also be doing a bunch of beach related pieces as the beach is probably my favorite thing about summer. One day I will live by the ocean on the beach. These man made lake beaches around me just don't cut it and I don't live by any of the nice Great Lake beaches like the west side of the state has.
Plus of course keys will remain a strong focal point of many designs.
