Being very aware that much of our country has been suffering under a heavy, severe winter weather season…I write this post with some trepidation. If you are still in the midst of horrible, frigid weather, please don’t hate me.
Southern California has been enjoying a very warm and dry winter, even by our standards. It’s not even noon and it’s 90 degrees outside. We do have our issues with this weather, namely the almost constant threat of wildfires.
That said, as I look out my dining room windows and see our fruitless pear trees in forced bloom, it’s definitely looking like Spring has arrived. I find my thoughts turning to creating some pretty bird themed necklaces in decidedly springtime color palettes.
I haven’t quite forgotten that I’m still in the month of January.
Work on some Valentine’s Day jewelry has also begun. I have 4 more of these handmade sterling silver hearts in varying sizes to bejewel.
