Today is the first day of Spring and it's gorgeous outside! To celebrate, I thought I would share a peek into the forthcoming nova lily spring + summer collection, on which I have been hard at work. This particular part of the collection features a (very) limited run of the loveliest vintage hand-painted floral wood beads in seafoam, spring green, and ivory white strung on incredibly soft deerskin leather lace or suede. I wish I had more of these rustic and vibrant spring floral beads, but being restricted by small quantities is part of the joy of working primarily with vintage, deadstock, and repurposed materials. It keeps things fresh and interesting and means that my designs are either one-of-a-kind or limited edition. I think this is part of the magic of handmade, and not something that I am willing to let go of just yet.
I will be starting to update the shop by the end of the month, so please check back, or subscribe to the nova lily mailing list.
Happy Spring (or Vernal Equinox)!
