The Pearly Story Behind "Dusting in Pearls"

I always feel like a walking paradox. I can get out in the garden with my shovel and sledgehammer and love every dusty dirty minute I'm out there. I spend the majority of my life dressed in my "grubbies". Yet there's a part of me deep down inside that still likes "the frillies", "the pearlies", and "the sparklies"--all the pretty things. Maybe it's all the great classic Hollywood movies I watched as a kid. I don't know. All I know is that I can be dirty and sweaty and still want to put on heels when it isn't practical; buy the prettiest apron even if it will get dirty; and don pearls when all I'm going to be doing is dusting and vacuuming the house. It doesn't make sense. It doesn't have to. I've decided to claim it, celebrate it, and have fun with it... and create some "pearly" goodness along the way.

Sparkly Soft

Sparkly Soft is a jewel of an Etsy shop just waiting to be truly discovered. And you, my fellow Pearly friends, will love the jewelery you will find there. All jewelry is handmade by the shop's proprietor, Kristen, and is lovely as well as practical.

My favorite piece is the pair of Constance Earrings...

Look at those precious hearts on the bottoms of the pearls! I just love it!

I am also taken with the soft pink of the Ophelia Necklace...

This dainty necklace is made from pink opals
and sterling silver wire and beads
It comes with the sterling silver chain.
Pendant is just over 1" in height
and the chain measures 18 inches.
So so pretty!

Then there is this lovely Pearl and Rose Bracelet...

Aren't the shimmery freshwater pearls beautiful?

And just in time for the holidays, Sparkly Soft has some wonderful pieces on clearance. Click here to see the Clearance Bracelets. Click here to see the Clearance Earrings. And have fun shopping!
