… And we’re back

After a bit of an earring-making and blog-posting hiatus, I was finally able to take a long weekend and busted out my bead boxes and tools.

Check out my Esty page for full descriptions and to purchase any of the earrings you see here.

Shells, Shell, and more Shells

As it turns out, I am a 4th generation Californian! Pretty cool, right? That seems to explain why I love shells so much. Whenever I wear these little slices of the ocean I feel right at home :)

Part neutral, part conversation-starter, it’s not surprising that my shell collection seems to be my most popular.
Do you have a pair of go-to earrings? Mine are definitely those ones at the top!

April Jewelry Party in Orange County

Last month my mom hosted a Carly Renee jewelry party at her beautiful home in Southern California. She treated her friends and I to margaritas, cheese and crackers, fruit, veggies, and of course chocolate cookies. My mom is a firm believer that chocolate fuels the body and no one should be without it, ever. I’m realizing now I should have taken a few pictures of all the food… Oh well, I’m still learning. One day I’ll be a blogging champ!

I picked these flowers from my mom’s garden. Someday I’ll have to do a little feature on her garden, it’s pretty fantastic.

One of the biggest challenges I’ve faced as a jewelry designer is giving up my favorite pieces. In the beginning I used to hoard my favorites, but lately I’ve learned that my favorites seem to be my best sellers. I guess I should be grateful of that!

Each customer received one of these cute (hand dyed and screen printed) little bags with their purchase. More to come on those later…

Another successful party in the books! Now back to the “studio” to make some more!
