Everyday Diamonds Inspires Design by Cassandra!

I'd like you all to meet Jessica and her sister, Robin.  They have a little Etsy shop they like to call Everyday Diamonds, and revel in all their creative bliss on their blog, A Handmade Revolution.  I've had the pleasure and honour to get to know Jessica and be able to bounce ideas around with her about our respective shops and creative processes.  I'd have to say that if it wasn't for Twitter, I wouldn't be able to have met Jessica and many other talented Etsians whom I've been able to receive such valuable criticism, praise and inspiration from such a great community.

I've fallen in love with Jessica's fabric flowers, with their delicate layers, bold colours and beautiful patterns.  I had asked if she could make a small set of flower hair clips for a particular necklace, but found myself newly inspired when I had first received them.  I really wanted to take my time with this inspiration, to make sure I find the components that were 'just right'.  After a few Etsy bead purchases and a recycled necklace, I've come up with three pieces, and I can't decide which piece is most deserving to be listed with!

Maybe you folks can help me out?  Leave a comment below, let me know what you think would pair the best!

Necklace no. 1

Interchangeable piece - necklace/pin with removable charms

Bracelet, no. 1

I haven't got names for them yet, but I'm sure something will come soon.  All three pieces will be listed in my Etsy shop soon, but first - we gotta figure out where these flower clips belong!  What's even cooler - all three of these pieces were made with 'Etsy ingredients' from and!

I am so glad we have connected via twitter! I love the Etsy community!

All of these pieces are great, but if I HAD to pick one to pair with the clips it would be the cute black and pink bracelet! This would make a great set for spring!

Thanks for mentioning our little shop on your fancy blog!!!

All the best,
Jessica (Everyday Diamonds)
