Swarovski Grapes on the Silver Vine

When I see amethyst Swarovski briolettes, I think of the vibrant colors of some of my favorite wine grape varietals... maybe that's why this pendant makes me want to drink wine?

I love the way these Swarovski crystals catch the light; it’s almost as though they have some inner flame desperate to burst forth and share beauty with world. Just the tiniest movement can make it seem as though they come alive and the colors remind me of the beauty of some of my favorite wine grape varietals on the vine.

 

Between the holidays, the wedding of a dear friend, New Years’ Eve party invitations and Valentine’s Day plans, my mind has been preoccupied with the idea of celebratory jewelry.  And, as the marking of milestones seems to be culturally celebrated with a toast (wedding toast, toast in the new year, wine and chocolate Valentine’s Day events), this new design, part of my Tendrils of the Vine Collection, is the manifestation of my personal celebration for endings, beginnings, milestones & holidays.

 
And, for Butterfly Sundries, it also marks a new milestone: this is my first Swarovski design, now available on Etsy here! I’ll toast to that!
