We received a terrific response and plans are now in the works to make it a regular feature. Here's a few of our faves for our first in the series.

I just adore these Light Turquoise blue Murano Venetian Glass Earrings by South Paw Studios. Speckles of silver leaf, 14k gold leaf and copper colored goldstone add a one-of-a-kind uniqueness to the ultra-chic earrings. The colors blend well and the speckles shimmer softly in the light. They remind me of the ocean waves crashing against the sand ~ simply beautiful. Handcrafted in Ohio, they retail for $48 at
