Bear and the Adelaide - My New Ring!

I have a bit of a ring obsession, and my favorite stone is Turquoise, which I am sure many of you love too. I like how silver compliments gemstones such as Turquoise and Labordite, and I spend quite a bit of time on Etsy checking out many of my favorite Metalsmith's shops to see what's new. I first found Jessie Corgy on Instagram and was happy to see that she sold her work on Etsy as well. I love Jessie Corgys shop Bear and the Adelaide, because the pieces in her shop are so drool worthy. She doesn't shy away from using the natural oxidation that occurs in metals, highlighting each stunning piece and giving each of her rings a raw beautiful look.

She kindly worked with me on the ring I am wearing, letting me pick the stone that I liked, and I chose a simple braid to go around the turquoise stone and a double split band. I am a huge fan of a brown matrix in Turquoise stones, and this large Pilot Mountain Turquoise stone made me say wow the minute I saw it.

If you are looking for a great statement piece, or wanting to add a little more Turquoise into your jewelry collection, check out Bear and the Adelaide. Not only does she have a variety of stunning Turquoise, she has Moonstone, Mother of Pearl, Citrine, Black Obsidian, Druzy Quartz, Tourmaline and more. Jessie does take custom orders and is excellent to work with, so check her shop out.

















Have a safe and fun Halloween and check back this weekend because I will be posting the info about my GIVEAWAY.

Colors that Inspire

When I originally moved out of my family home to get married 7 years ago the internet was not very inspiring, and so I decorated my new apartment without too much thought. I brought items with me from my single days at home, and so did my husband and we meshed them together.

Seven years later, and I now think it is time for an update.  Now you can find great inspiration online from websites such as Pinterest, Etsy and Chairish when it comes to how to decorate your home. I  do still love the colors that I picked for my apartment, because the peach is inviting, so that I always feel happy and warm in my main living room. As for our bedroom, I am not sure if I would paint it a deep rich red again. It is a bit too dark and gives too much of a cool feeling, but it does have that sexy mood I was going for, so  I will stick with it.

 If you are looking to decorate a new home or revamp a few new rooms, posted here is an Infographic from Chairish which is really helpful when choosing colors that mix well with one another.

Below are some looks for the home which inspired me and got me excited about revamping my apartment. Check out Chairish for a variety of really stunning accent chairs, and if your looking for some really unique Art work to hang on your wall, Etsy is the place to go. I picked a lot of items with in the Light Bright and Modern feel, since its usually what I am drawn to and it would look good with what is currently in my home.
