Bead & Button Show purchase from Elemental Adormnents.

I love lilacs.

They bring back fond memories of childhood. My mom had a large lilac bush and it was always exciting to cut some of the flowers and bring them indoors.

Christi Anderson of Elemental Adornments cast these silver lilacs from the flowers themselves.

If only they smelled as good as the real thing.

OMG! This bracelet is stunning! I also love lilacs... growing up we had a French lilac in our yard...with dark purple flowers. It was stunning- and smelled so awesome.
This was a lucky find!!

I thought it was a lucky find, too. It was sort of hanging on a branch all crumpled up. I picked it up to see what it was and was very pleasantly surprised! Last year I bought a PMC birdhouse pendant from her. She makes amazing things.

hi again!

Oh I just got done drooling at their website! I imagine the pendants and jewelry is quite expensive?
I would love one of the birdhouse pendants.
