Featured Etsy Seller: Persephone’s Place

Southwestern and Native American inspired patterns have always had a cool, close to nature feel.  This spring and summer season we are seeing these patterns pop out in all types of apparel and done in lots of different styles and colors (from neutral to neons).  However, sometimes we just like the look and feel of the real deal . . .

So remember these oh-so-cool earrings from Persephone’s Place that Ash wore last Friday on her Native American inspired shoot?

Native Nights Western Beaded Earrings

Well, we are so in love with Monique’s beaded earrings that we thought we’d share some more of her stuff here on tumblewee!

These "Kimberly Earrings" have a fringe like feel.

Monique’s love for bead work is inspired by her partial Native American Heritage (Lenape Indian) and by what she sees and observes in nature. Being native Arizonians these Native American undertones in her work are what drew us to her shop.

I love the angle of these!

If you ask Monique she’ll tell you that her bead work is incorporated into her philosophy of life and love of nature.

These have a crow feathers look with the iridescent sheen!

Monique told us, “stone magic and earth magic, and a knowledge of mythology and esoteric sciences play a large part in the creation of my pieces. I spend a lot time outdoors hiking with my husband  and looking for stones, studying colors and combinations of colors as they appear in the natural environment.  Many of my pieces are spiritually dedicated to and inspired by mythological ideas and elemental energies.  Because I wish to convey the connection of my jewelry to earth and it’s elementals, I photograph my jewelry in natural environments whenever possible.”

Monique runs a blog: Plutons Gems which is actually devoted to her bead work and similar topics including ethics in the gemstone industry, and ecological mining and environmental issues.  If you’re interested in her work go read up!

So feel a little closer to nature, and a little closer to your style and stop by Persphone’s Place and take a look around!

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Roosevelt Murals

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

PART II Of Roosevelt Murals

&

SPONSOR LOVE

We headed back down to Roosevelt to take some more shots with the murals down in that area.  Since it’s one of the art districts in Phoenix, the murals come and go before you know it sometimes.  So you really have to catch them quick.  I absolutely love this southwestern inspired one, which I felt would be perfect for some southwestern inspired accessories.

I just go these earrings from one of our sponsors!  Persophone’s Place!  I absolutely love them.  They are supper long and beaded.  They go with just about everything I own . . . I have fairly simple outfits and when you have such a cool pair of statement piece earrings, sometimes it’s great to tone down the other parts of your outfit (in my opinion).  She’s has shorter versions if you prefer!

Unfortunately, I rarely get to wear them right now . . . Jax LOVES it when I wear dangly earrings.  And my ears LOVE it when he pulls them too (insert dripping sarcasm here)!  I get to wear them at least once a week when I’m working and he’s hanging out with his dad on his day off.

This dinosaur mural is across the way from the southwestern one.  Its so cute!  Feels really funky and I believe it’s spray painted on.

By this time, jax was starting to loose it and get super squirmy.  He wants to be off running around (although he hasn’t quite figured out the walking/running part, but he can sure book it in a crawl).

I’m wearing forever21 top and tank (man – forever21 is SO affordable, $5 tank tops), H&M pants, Target ballet flats in a cool bright colored southwestern pattern, thrifted jewelry, and you can get my fantastic earring here – at Persephone’s Place.

on jax: thrifted Jack & Jill gray linen shorts, and thrifted vintage yellow polo shirt.

hope you enjoyed Fashion Friday!  check out the cool murals around Phoenix when your in town.

have a great weekend! ash
