Beauty - I came across this wonderful site from a Lisa Leonard in California. She makes hand-made, sterling silver and also some vintage brass jewelry. There is bling mixed in with a little freshwater pearl action. It's really unique and appealing in a fresh, clean sort of way.
For Ashes - This piece shown in the pic, is being done as a fundraiser for a blogging friend of hers (during this month only), who lost her home in the fires in California. The cost is $52, $15 going to her friend. I am placing an order, and I thought enough of it to share with you all. I have met the sweetest people on here, and I knew you would want to know about it.
