I couldn't tell you why I haven't posted here in almost a year...I guess I got out of the habit of photographing my jewelry. I'm not much of a photographer, so it's like a chore for me. But still, I know it's a great way to record what I'm making, and I love looking back through my archives, to see how my designs have morphed and changed over the years. Sometimes I get a fresh inspiration from an old design.
So, with that said, I'm going to try to get this blog going again.
I won't look backwards.
Looking forward then.....I am going to my nephew's wedding in June!! It seems like only yesterday he loved to play with his Tonka Bulldozer! Now he's a young man, first-time home buyer, and soon-to-be newlywed!
My sister is the mother of the groom, so she has a special dress for the occasion, and I have offered (really, I've taken over) to outfit her in jewelry.
She's in California and I'm in Pennsylvania, so she will pick a necklace when I get out there. But I have photos of the dress. It is a medium to light grey, with crystal colored bead work all over. It has somewhat of a plunging neckline (V-shaped).
There are so many directions to go!!
So let's just let the pictures do the talking.
|Vintage rhinestone pins, rhinestone circle links from Michael's|
|Vintage rhinestone circle pin, crystals and chain.|
|Vintage rhinestone dress clip, rock crystal, blue Chinese crystal with rhinestone rondelle spacers|
|Rock crystal pendant and assorted crystal MOP, glass beads from my stash.|
The forth necklace is probably best for the dress. Simple, but not too simple . It will hang into the plunging neckline, but not as low as necklace 2.
Of course there are earrings....
|These would go with any of the necklaces, depending on how big she wants to go!|
|These match the third necklace exactly - very matchy-matchy!|
|Mother of Pearl leaves, gray glass pearls and chandelier crystal parts.|
So those will be her choices. Now I need to make something for myself and the Grandmother of the groom (my Mom!). That will be my next post! Let's hope I can keep this going.
Thanks for stopping by!
