New Swarovski Designs

I just ordered Swarovski pearls in almost every color they have, plus got some of the new Swarovski heart designs.  I plan on expanding on the bridal and formal jewelry in the BZ Originals Etsy site (see Favorite Sites) even more.  This was a design I recently did with Swarovski new Devoted 2 U hearts in Golden Shadow and Sterling Silver with freshwater pearls.  Tell me what you think. 

My Other Blogs

I am having trouble getting into and editing my BZ Originals Blog, so I am just going to do everything out of the Odyssey Creations Blog. After all, it is all me.

I love summer, love gardening and watching things grow, love the longer days. We live in Fort Collins, Colorado, a town voted several times to be the #1 place in America to live, and I have to say I do love it here, especially in the summer. Our downtown, we call Old Town, and part of Disneyland was actually fashioned after the architecture and flavor of it. There is free music and theater going on nightly in several locations, partially, because we are fortunate to have a local billionaire that loves music and supports the arts, keeping the town alive with the constant music in the summer. The biggest event is New West Fest which features over 50 bands, mostly local, sometimes more famous (Earth Wind & Fire last year - yeah!).

We were downtown last night, ate at the Beach House, a restaurant with Caribean style food and awesome 7 layer jumbo shrimp enchiladas (a great Hawaiian Torta too). They hand out buckets of things to do for the kids and we had my 8 year old granddaughter with us. From there, went to Oak Street Plaza with a live blues band playing and the kids playing in the water fountains there - so much fun to watch! Truly what small town America is all about - just love it!
