Love Chicago! If you are in town check out the Arts & Artisans shops (there are four). Wonderful gardener's jewelry! Found this striking Gingko leaf in hand patinaed bronze. This style included red horn beads. They carry Michael Michaud's "Silver Seasons" collection. Lots of organic shapes like pea pods in bronze and pearls.
Background is a beautiful silk scarf given to me by our neighbors who left us in charge of their prized orchid while they vacationed in China. Loved the orchid--it even made it into a Post Dispatch photo shoot of our house.
