BESTeam Shop Feature 05.11.10

You're an accountant by vocation and a flyfisherwoman by avocation - with a penchant for creating beautiful jewelry using semi-precious gemstones, fossils, crystals and freshwater pearls. So, what do you call your shop? Fishprincessdesigns of course... at least if you're Felicia, the owner of said shop! With her inspiration coming from the great outdoors - a mountain stream, a walk in the woods, our beautiful Great Lakes, a fabulous sunset, a stormy sky - this jewelry artisan has created a lovely collection of pieces that she hopes will inspire you as well!

Felicia hails from Michigan, making the shores of several of the Great Lakes available to her for beachcombing, flyfishing, and family outings. Water, especially more turbulent water like the Great Lakes is known for, has an amazing way of transforming rocks (as anyone who's seen the Grand Canyon will attest to!) - often tumbling them into silky smooth stones that on first glance you would think had been machine polished. These stones can be turned into stunning focal points for jewelry, creating an earthy feel like Felicia has achieved in her Lake Michigan Beach Stone, Larkavite, Quartz and Freshwater Pearl Pendant Necklace. Gorgeous, isn't it?

To those of you who don't fish, you might not make the connection between Felicia's love of flyfishing and these earrings; but I'm going to bet that anyone who's spent some time out with a rod and reel will recognize the connection right away! That's right, those are spinner blades! In fishing, spinner blades are used to create flashes of light and color to lure fish to the bait. In jewelry, they provide a classic, yet interesting and bold foundation for earrings like her Hammered Copper Teardrop Earrings.

Fishprincessdesigns also offers some stunning bridal and bridal party pieces. These designs feature shimmery Swarovski glass pearls along with Swarovski crystal components and the gleam of sterling silver for a look that is timelessly elegant. These items can be created in your choice of colors which makes them perfect for any wedding ensemble and a gift for your bridesmaids that will be cherished for years to come! This Swarovski Pearl and Sterling Silver Tube Bracelet- in Powdered Pink is just one lovely example of the bracelets, necklaces, and earrings that Felicia offers in her bridal collection. Simply dreamy!
