Raine has one of my new leaves in it. The vintage green, distressed ones are my favorite! My mother-in-law was over for Memorial Day and together we designed a necklace just for her. I used the 24k Gold chain, and interlocked links with dark green beads, vintage gold corrugated beads, and pearl beads. I hung the leaf to dangle at the bottom and then added a sheer, gold ribbon as the clasp. I think it turned out very elegant and perfect! Let me know what you think!
This past weekend I got the opportunity to go out the a jewelry show in Chicago. When I was there, I found some really neat new stuff to incorporate into my line of jewelry. This is where Phoebe comes in. Apparently out in L.A., leaves are all the rage. They are real leaves that have been preserved, and then hand painted with 24k Gold, sterling silver, an antique gold color, or a vintage green color. So, I have attached this 24k Gold leaf to a 24k Gold chain. Then I hand-made another strand of chain, with pearls linked in the middle. I think that it is dainty and sweet, and totally cool!

I got my inspiration for Valerie from a necklace that I had seen in a store. I wanted to grab some different looking beads that you would never think to put together and put them together. I used glass antique yellow beads, a navy colored stone, assorted red beads, an antique button, then black vintage beads on the sides. I topped it off with a black ribbon to add a little elegance. Valerie is $35.

Memoir is stunning! A friend bought all the different kinds of pearls at an antique store, along with the broach and earrings, and asked me to create something for her. This is what came out of it all! I think is very eye catching! It is four strands of different size pearls, a bow pin, and some sparkly diamond earrings. The ribbon clasp helps finish it with a chique look. I sold Memoir for $50. If you are interested in a necklace like memoir then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
