Winter Twilight

It was overcast this morning, the winter sky a gunmetal gray framed with silvery clouds. Later, going through my bead stash, I was immediately drawn to some gunmetal gray hematite and silvery swarovski pearls. It just seemed like the perfect day to use them.

As I went outside to take pictures, twilight began to fall and cast shadows through the trees that reflected in the stones. It just seemed fitting you know? That the winter morning sky would inspire them, and the winter evening sky would be absorbed by them.

So that closes out another week of living more creatively! I hope you'll come back and join me next week, and maybe even feel inspired to do a little creating of your own.


  1. Very pretty! The beads seem to draw light to themselves. I like the way you've alternated light with dark and shiny elements.

    I've been working on a journal of my writing and poetry. I've borrowed elements of scrapbooking, but haven't included any photos. It's fun to be creative.

  2. Thank you!

    That journal sounds so interesting! If you post pictures, please paste the link. I'd love to get an idea of what it looks like.

  3. Very pretty, Christy. They do reflect PA winters for sure. You have such a way with words. Very inspiring.

  4. Very pretty! I think your lighting totally worked!

  5. Thanks, Courtney! I'm no camera expert, but after lots of trial and error, I've found that taking my subject outdoors at the onset of evening when the light is soft works best. I turn off my flash and use the macro setting to get up close.

  6. These are stunning earrings Christiana, you're very talented!!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving some love!


Thank you so much for taking a few moments to brighten my day!
