Autumn Inspiration


 Just the other day, I was playing outside with my three year old daughter when we came across these leaves...or what is left of them.  I fell instantly in love.  It was a cooler day (which for Texas means it was near 80), and to me, these little guys seemed to be a sign that Autumn was near.  I'm hoping to somehow incorporate them into my work, but for now, I just wanted to share.

I hope you have a lovely day!

Customized Bridesmaid Clutches

This custom order was so much fun to work on!  The precious bride had me create earrings when she first became engaged to ask each girl to be her bridesmaid.  Closer to the big day, she contacted me with a clutch order and wanted to use a different fabric for each bridesmaid, something that would fit each personality.  I absolutely loved this idea, it made the clutches so personal!  She sent me a list of the girls and a brief description of each one, then I sent her the fabrics that fit each style and we went from there. 

Here is what we decided on for the "Vintage Glam" bridesmaid, I absolutely love the pop of red!

This high quality textured fabric was for the "Simple Elegance" bridesmaid, and features a fuzzy flower and branch pattern (that you just have to touch) on a pale gray linen blend fabric with a slight sheen.

I really enjoyed this order and hope to have many more like this one!

Custom Grace Kelly Bracelet

I recently had the pleasure of creating this piece for a fabulous customer!  She contacted me to ask if I could recreate the Grace Kelly bracelet from the movie "Rear Window" and use all hand-picked lockets.  After many Etsy and Ebay searching, (and only one "locket" purchased that wasn't actually a locket)...this is what we came up with!

She did a fabulous job designing this piece, and I really enjoyed making it.  If you're eyeing that irresistible bee locket, you can find it here as a gorgeous and very unique necklace.

Thank you Jan for all of your patience and hard work putting this together!  You were a joy to work with!
