I always get distracted by other Etsy designers when I should be posting my own pieces. I can't help it! I love to see what other artists are doing. Today, I stumbled upon Raquel Castillo, a jewelry desginer based in Los Angeles. Her designs are absolutely incredible. She uses vintage enamel jewelry to construct beautiful necklaces, earrings and cuffs. They are colorful, bold and so unique. When have you ever seen something so different? I admire her use of color and the way she's not afraid to put several bold pieces all together. This is at the top of my wish list! View more of her incredibel work at her Esty shop at www.raquelcastillo.etsy.com.

I have always loved rainbows. Since the time I was a kid, I have always been drawn to things that showcase all the shades of the rainbow. No matter how many times I create a rainbow in a piece of jewelry, I continue to go back to the idea and do it all over again in a slightly different way. These are a few of my favorite rainbows lately.
