Scenes from the UpNorth Beach Studio

So this is what it has looked like outside the UpNorth Beach Studio's for the last several months....snowy, icy, beautiful but honestly
this Southern girl is ready for some major sunshine!!!!
I get very inspired when I am at the cottage UpNorth. Peaceful, quiet, nature all around, everything is back to basics and the simple things in can you not be inspired by that.

I love how the snow & ice form on the beautiful blue/green waters on Lake Michigan's West Bay........Looks almost like frosting on a cake, don't you think?

Back to the prsent though..........We had a great weekend UpNorth and just loved being by the water, watching the swans in front of the cottage, seeing the last bit of snow melt away which means that summer is finally getting near. Ben is so excited that he will be back on his beloved sailboat very soon!!!
Soon we will have beach fires, sailing the day away, drives through the Michigan wine country, cherry blossoms ( Traverse City is the Cherry Capital of the World), eating cherries by the pound, looking for the Northern Lights as well as enjoying the sparkling stars that light up the sky at night.......
can't tell that I am dreaming of summer can you?

Well, at least in the meantime I got on the beach with the sand in my toes to take some new shots of some of my current favorite jewelry! This is one of my fav's! Black & White with twisted sterling silver........You can wear this with anything!!! Fabulous yet classic.

Love this one of a kind faceted moonstone & Swarovski crystal necklace. The moonstone has such variations and is just stunning in person!

This necklace is such fun! Multi-colored pearls, sterling silver, handblown glass & a Fabulous Swarovksi Crystal Starfish!!! Adorable and perfect for all of our Beach Lovers out there!!!

This necklace is from our June Beach Collection. It is called Sanibel! Love the Simplicity of the necklace with the freshwater pearls & Swarovski crystal.........

The sun is setting on our weekend UpNorth.......we always wish we could stay here forever and not go back to our normal lives.....but what a blessing & treat to be able to get away from it all and get energized again......

I will live you with this parting necklace for the reminds me of the beautiful waters at the cottage. So soft and serene.......yet strong and powerful.

Have a sparkling day!
