Romance is in the air..

Love is in there air. TV shows, movies, and even TV commercials all have us thinking about showing our special Valentine that we love or think they are special. And just in time for Valentine's Day, I wanted to feature a few new kumihimo designs I've made with tender, loving care. I love the idea of taking two separate totally different pieces - both wonderful as stand-alone parts themselves - and matching them together in perfect harmony that somehow manages to elevate and accentuate their differences, and make them really pop. You've heard it before, opposites attract, and the opposite colors, textures and shapes brought together really attracted my attention in these lovely pieces.

Romantic pink Rhodonite rounds, spotted pink jasper, mixed with gun metal blocks and rose blush chinese crystal rondelles are the perfect contrasts of hard and soft. Enjoy the edgier straight lines and dark rich colors of the gun metal glass blocks brought together with the roundness and soft colors of the blush pink rhodonite and natural semi-precious stones joined together in the ancient Japanese Kumihimo weave really accentuate and bring out the differences of the two opposites.
Necklace measures 19"-21"


Romantic Rhodonite and Gun Metal Kumihimo Necklace - $35

Next up, we have the lovely Pink Stone, Rose Quartz and Gun Metal Blocks Kumihimo Bracelet. Soft pink and gun metal colors come together as opposites in this feminine yet edgy kumihimo bracelet. Eight strands of light pink stone, rose quartz, and gun metal blocks are hand woven in a gradual spiral pattern in the japanese kumihimo style, with a few hints of bright pink and shiny silver for added bling and variety. Either for youself or as a gift, this bracelet will totally rock any pink, grey, black, and even white outfit.

Happy New Year all from Cara's Creations!

I sure hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year! Can't hardly believe it's a new year already. Where did the last year go?

For this new year, I wanted to showcase a couple new items that will be up in the Bayard Cafe, as well as on this blog. The staff are so friendly there, will be glad to show you the jewelry items on display, and did I mention the food...?  Delish! My favorites are their breakfast dishes-yummo! And love love their home fries! You gotta try them if you're in the area or want to try a new breakfast/brunch/lunch place.

First up, I want to show you the deep red and polished copper on this Red and Copper T-Style Necklace. Large sumptuous red glass beads and crystal rondelles. And really cool looking copper wrapped around red glass spheres. Going down the middle, there is a unique looking hollow sphere made up of clear, white and rusty red rondelles, a metal copper embellished bead and crystal rondelles to finish it up. Lobster clasp makes it adjustable from 18" up to 20" around the neck-line, the bottom of the 'T' hangs down the chest from 22"-24".

Red and Copper T-Style Necklace - $28














Next, I wanted to show you the deep purples and sparkly crystals of this upcoming necklace. It is a slightly different version of the Purple Pearls with Chinese Teardrop Crystals Necklace, as this one makes an elegant bold and dramatic look with the Chinese Teardrop Crystals all in the front.

Purple Pearls with Front Chinese Teardrop Crystals Necklace - $35   **UPDATE - This necklace has been SOLD**
