Feather Earring by FawnSpots

This is a beautiful, long feather earring with real turquoise stones and sterling silver earwire. I love this combination of colours, and the little details like the filigree links on the chain. Check out FawnSpots' store here.

I'm back!

I'll post another item feature shortly, but in the meantime I wanted to tell everyone about my recent trip to Red Rock Canyon in Nevada. I was there for 2 weeks with a bunch of friends from Newfoundland. It was a great trip and I learned so much about climbing. Red Rocks has something for every climber, at every level. There is sport climbing, bouldering, trad, and multi-pitch. I am mainly a sport climber, but I tried out some trad climbing on the trip and it was a great experience. It was a whole new challenge. I have never experienced a desert environment before either. It is so hot and dry, you wonder how anything can survive there, but there is amazing wildlife: birds, lizards, snakes, rabbits, even deer. I didn't see any of the more exotic animals like tortoises or wild burros, though! It was a great time and I definitely recommend Red Rocks to anyone interested in taking a trip there.
