{driftwood jewelry stands}

Hello!
Have I told you lately just how much I appreciate you stopping by to leave me happy little comments!
Well I sure do appreciate it:)
You are what is going to help me stay positive this winter.
Smile...yes Smile.
The weather has taken a turn for the worse.
I want to rip my hair out....but instead I decided to get busy and create some fresh new pretties for Simple Daisy! 

Yes...someday....I do hope to do something creative full time! It just makes me so darn happy! and I hope my creations make you happy too:)
I have been so intimidated by stamping. But i'm glad I gave it a whirl!
I think these pretty little necklaces are my new favorite things! I love them:)

Dreamin' of the sea yet!?!? I know I am....but guess what....
that's not even the sea! It's beautiful Lake Michigan! Looks pretty, huh!?!?!
Even though it's not exactly the sea it still makes me pretty happy! Especially in the summertime.
Guess what else I made that I thought you would like!?!?!
Driftwood Jewely Stands!!
I love them too:)
I think I just can't let summer go....that's why I am happily creating everything out of driftwood! Good thing I collected a ton this summer!
ps....don't be harsh with your photo judgements! It was so grey today....I took everything outside just to get even a bit of natural light and no....I didn't iron the fabric! Should have huh!?!?!
So easy to make!
Maybe I should sell them in my shop!!!!!!
I am sure some of you might not have access to driftwood.

What do you think!?!?! I think they would make super cute gifts!
Hey....i'm having a big Christmas party soon and I know I wouldn't be sad if you showed up at my home with one of these in hand!!!

A winter storm is on it's way for the weekend....but I wonder if I could beg my husband to head up to the beach so I could do a little more collecting!!!!!
ps....feel free to take a peek at my shop!!! I've been working hard on adding lots of fresh new pretties!! I think they would all make perfect gifts for all your beachy girlfriends!!
And guess what.....I am working on my first custom order for a bridal party!! Yep...she's getting married on the beach and I am so happy that she chose Simple Daisy for her bridal jewelry!!!
YEAH!

  1. I can't believe that is a lake! Looks like an ocean to me.

    Love the driftwood stands. They would even be cute to hang ornaments on for Christmas. :)

  2. Yes! You should sell the driftwood jewelry stands. They are wonderful! I love your new stamped necklaces too. Beautiful.

    I miss the ocean so much and certainly don't have access to driftwood here in the Southwestern desert. Your blog helps me feel closer to the sea. :)

  14. Heather,
    Glad you showed your stamped jewels first and I love them...we very have similar looks. I like the driftwood stands so let me know how to get one or do a reserve in your Etsy shop for me.

  15. How awesome! You are so creative!!

  16. I LOVE the new jewelry, I've been thinking of trying my hand at metal stamping after receiving some gorgeous spoons from another blogger. I have much less space to work in these days and thought this might let me be creative without requiring a whole studio.

    Yes, you should definitely sell the driftwood pieces in your Etsy store! But then, I'm looking forward to the day you're only crafting for a living, you are such a creative talent!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  18. Hi Heather! Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment! I just checked out your blog {and then promptly added it to my "must read" list!} your jewelry is GORGEOUS! I love all the ocean shades & sea life charms! I'll have to "accidentally" make your Etsy shop the home page on my husband's laptop. ;)

  19. Hi Heather!
    Absolutely!!! Add these stands to your store. They're so unique!!!(There may be a market for them around here, too.)Congratulations on your custom order. That's fabulous!

    Can you make the coin pearl earrings with the pearl hanging down from the top of the silver hoop (inside the hoop). That would be so beautiful...and something else I would love to buy. (My hair gets caught in really long dangles.) I get compliments on the Estelle earrings all the time!!!

  24. I love stamped jewelry and all your things are beautiful, really.

    Hey now - i LOVE Lake Michigan! How near to the Lake do you live? Before we came to Florida we lived in a Lake Michigan beach town in Michigan. I was very happy there. I go there every summer for a visit while we're in the state. Always have a little pang for that place I loved so much.

  27. Like you I find that doing art projects helps me deal with winter and all the darkness that comes with it. I don't do much art work in the summer and spring time because the weather is beautiful.
