Black and White

Our first entry this week is from our shiny new leader, Rose of Waterrose. Rose entered her Sheet Music Wrist Cuff. I don't know about you, but sheet music immediately makes me think of black and white and it brings back memories of playing the recorder in music when I was in grade school...
Next up, Suz from Simply Suzula entered her Vintage Luggage. Not only is this suitcase pretty cool, but "vintage" in itself also kind of connotes black and white to me...

Our third entry (which is already making more than we had last week!) is from Miss Mollie of Rough Magic Creations. Mollie entered her one-of-a-kind Moonbeam Sea Swirl Necklace with Shells. There's something so zen about this balanced beauty, isn't there?

Next we have Regina from VivatRegina and her Fly Away Angel earrings. These pretty metal wings are accented by a black glass bead. Incredibly versatile, it's hard to imagine an outfit they wouldn't work with!
Ames from Adorn by Amy Singley is next with her super cool Hypnotiste earrings. Fun and funky, these pretties are made of vintage black lucite that's engraved and painted white.

Our sixth lovely entry comes from Karon of Wild Woman Jewelry. She entered her oh-so chic Distressed Black and White Vintage Plastic, Sterling Silver and Gunmetal earrings. I love the pairing of the shabby chic teardrops and the shiny black rounds!

Next up if Elizabeth from Foret and her Tribal Feather earrings. These danglers are made from carved bone, black horn and sterling silver and feature "eyes" that are a symbol of protection from the "Evil Eye."

Stevie J from Designs by Stevie J is first this week with her lovely Canadian Jade Raspberry Quartz and Rose Quartz with Gold Necklace. Her description of why she chose to enter this necklace is great: "So, the reason why I am entering this because when I was living in So. Florida all the Snow Birds (nickname for mainly Canadians and anyone else from up north) all migrated there for the winter. lol." Way to think outside of the box, Stevie J!

Our second and final entry this week is from Joe of Feedback Theatrebooks. Joe entered The Irish Emigrant, a 19th century American play by John Brougham.

Anne from Wish Art Glass was our first entry this week with her stunning Spiral Sun Fused Glass Suncatcher. I love how dramatic this piece is when it catches the light!

Andrea from Sacred Suds is next with her Luna, Moon Goddess soap. Inspired by the Roman Goddess of the moon, this vegan, all-natural soap is made with olive oil, coconut oil, organic palm oil, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, lemon essential oil (lunar), ylang ylang essential oil (sensual), and eucalyptus essential oil (lunar).

Next up we have Joe from Feedback Theatrebooks, with Under the Gaslight, a 19th Century Melodrama by Augustin Daly. I love that Joe and Mollie worked together on this one, with Joe writing the introduction and Mollie designing the cover and layout.
Our fourth entry this week is from Ames of Adorn by Amy Singley. Amy entered her lovely Luminous necklace, which is made with clear glass with an aurora borealis finish and oxidized sterling silver.

Next up we have Elizabeth from Foret and her Shimmering Opalite Globe Earrings. These sparklers feature micro-faceted opalite globes accented with apple green chryoprase and sterling silver stars. I chose this picture so that you could really see their shine!

First up this week we have Jill from Moonlight Beadworks with her lovely layered Shades of Blue Multi-Strand Beaded Necklace. In her message to enter this necklace, Jill said that it's "balanced, yet unbalanced (just like me)." Love that! Doesn't it describe us all???

Our second and final entry this week (insert sad face here) is from Stevie J of Designs By Stevie J. Stevie J entered the fabulous Keep My Balance Necklace, which features rose quartz, a gemstone that is said to be heart healing and balancing.
