The wind won this time, but we are still here

We are here
For twelve years our post sign stood strong against the elements, but today the Wind won and blew our Sirius chakra wheel down on one knee, er, one bracket.
Of course, it was far smarter to take the sign down rather than risk on final gust crashing the sign into our business neighbor's window, or landing on a passerby's head, so that's what we did.

And oh my stars, the phone hasn't stopped ringing!  "The chakra star isn't on the post - Are you guys closing up shop?"
We are still here!  Well, we're here when we're here.  And when we're here, we'll put the door sign out in front - our version of a candle in the window.

Our sign has definitely held its own in the weather, but it needs new brackets and a paint tune-up at the least.  Maybe this is a sign that it's time for a change...

I finished several custom order pieces this week - intentionally energetic earrings and necklaces, so gemstone choices were as important as the designs themselves.  All of the recipients pleased with their jewelry, so I am pleased.
So now I'm going to go through my design journals and dance with some of the ideas I drew out but never put into form.  I'm also going to dig into my bead stash (I mean inventory) and use some of the treasures I've collected over the years.

Fall 2011 fashion trend colors - Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2011

I always look forward to the Pantone Fashion Color reports.  They give me one more excuse, er, I mean reason to shop for gemstones.  Phlox is speaking to me.  So is Bamboo.  I'm still wrestling on Honeysuckle (the color of the year) but I'm sure we'll make the connection eventually.  Do you have any favorites here?
