Inspired by snowflakes and winter woods

White Opal 

Vintage Japanese Cherry Brand art glass, wrapped in filigree; a vintage brass snowflake~ this jewelry set is inspired by the beauty of winter.

 Not just any snowy day~ I'm talking about the kind of day where you wake up in a mountain lodge and squeal with delight to find it's been snowing all night.

So you take your sled and a thermos of hot cocoa, put the chains on the car, and drive deserted lanes of white, through the snowy woods. 

                           Everything looks so clean and fresh, blanketed in pure white. 

Even the creeks are dressed up, the stones with big fluffy white hats. 

It's a kind of magic.

So keep your sunny days, your hot days at the beach. I'll be a snowbird, flying high in the lonely mountain forests.
