New pieces in the works - Tree buds...really cool ones.

There is an amazing tree that grows in my neighbors yard. It was the last tree in my neighborhood to bloom this year. I almost thought that it wasn't going to. But when it did, it was worth the wait. It is called a Silk tree. Its beautiful blooms look like delicate feathers changing in color from white to pink.

When I took a closer look I was so intrigued with what I saw. The buds to this tree look like star bursts or teeny tiny fireworks. I had to cast one...or ten.

The results, perfect castings. Great for earrings and rings. I cast many sizes and I just don't know which I like best. Here are some pictures of these beautiful buds. Stay tuned for the new pieces to show up on our Look whats new page on our website.

Twigs and Heather featured in Daily Candy-Boston

We were just featured in one of our favorite blogs, The Daily Candy. Being Boston girls we were honored to be mentioned in their fashion edition. Kerry Alice and I both loved what they wrote about our jewelry. They described our jewelry as "a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll". Perfect!
