Published again!!! This time in Jewelry Affaire magazine. I was so thrilled when they chose this necklace for a full page feature in the spring issue, which hit the newsstands on April 1st. I have posted about this piece before – it honors my birth and adopted mothers.
My sweet daughter decided to join a group of friends and go to prom. Not a problem except that it was very much a last minute decision (we are talking 5 days before the event here) which left little time to put together a fabulous outfit. Using what we had on hand, we were able to transform my girl into a very classy and elegant diva – think 1940′s film star. Here’s what we came up with: Long black halter dress (mom’s), cute heels (daughter’s from thrift store), Jewelry (combo of daughter’s necklace, mom’s vintage rhinestone bracelet, and earrings daughter made from vintage rhinestone bits I had in my studio, vintage cut rayon velvet wrap (grandma’s) and finally a vintage clutch bag (mom’s again!). The look – priceless!!!
We also took some time to head up to the annual Pennsylvania Faerie Festival at Spoutwood Farm. Upon arrival, my daughter stated that “these are my people”, and I can’t say I disagree. I have to tell you that this particular festival is very family oriented and overflowing with positive energy. Attendees are obviously very comfortable with themselves. Wonderful music and inspiring crafts – plus mom and girl child time!
Last weekend I was at A Journey From Junk in Ellicott City, MD to help my friend Kelli with her trunk show. We put together necklaces on the spot for customers, using her incredible selection of chains and charms (new as well as vintage bits and bobs). The weather was lovely and we had a fabulous day making jewelry ( including some fun steam-punk bracelets!!).
I am counting down the days until my annual adventure at the Lucketts General Store Spring Faire – which is the this weekend!!!! I’ll be filling up my granny cart with all sorts of wonderful goodies.Hope to see you there!!
