I'm beginning this post with the deffinition of Eclectic because I can think of no truer eclecticist then Holly of Tuscan Road Designs. I am awestruck by the combinations of media that she creates her unique pieces with. Lampwork, Swarovski crystal, natural gemstones, charms & a variety of chains give her a multitude of possibilities; each one is varied as the colors of the rainbow. Above are but a fraction of her pieces. To fully get a feel for Holly's work please visit her shop, fanpage and blog.

Well, that is certainly a different way of telling the story, but a good one! And I have never heard the term "eclecticist" before. But if I had to use that term, I guess there would be no better person to use it on than Holly! Thanks for the great post!
