Happy July! The middle of the year brings the warm haze of summer, especially here in Arizona. The sun takes its time setting, we feel the urge to stop working and go out to play. Summertime brings a little more playing, lounging, and of course delicious cookouts and barbecues!
Some extra excitement comes on July 4th, when we observe Independence Day with a bang. The fireworks, sparklers, and American colors are everywhere, and we’re reminded of our rebellious country’s founding.
The American flag is meaningful and iconic, and being patriotic is easy when you’re rocking its colors. Celebrate the Fourth of July with my red, white, and blue-accented jewelry, all handmade in northern Arizona, USA.
My Square Cross Amulet Necklace on a Garnet Chain is a sophisticated way to incorporate red into your look. The small accents of the ruby-colored garnet are understated but still enchanting. This necklace is perfect to pair with a dress or with denim, and is short enough to layer with other necklaces.
One of my favorite statement pieces is the Hoop Necklace on Triple Strand Pearls. Stunning, one-of-a-kind freshwater pearls, and a pop of color from the turquoise paired with a sterling silver circle. This necklace is from my Circles and Spines collection, its inspiration drawn from my journeys around the country and returning home to my native AZ.
These sterling silver Tempest Earrings on Blue Onyx are perfect to take you from day to night. I love the mix of the beautiful deep blue with the textured silver. It’s said that blue onyx lends strength to the wearer and heightens intuition during times of stress.
I’m going to celebrate July 4th by keeping cool, cracking a beer, and comforting Sugarfoot if there are fireworks!
I’m thankful to live in this beautiful state and be a part of this incredible country. However you celebrate, be safe and have fun. Happy Independence Day!
