ivory bloom

I have been wanting to experiment with using ribbons in my jewelry for quite a long time. I found this lovely satin edged ivory organza ribbon and combined it with a bold vintage ivory carved lucite rose and a "disco" ball faceted Swarovski crystal bead. available here I bought tons of black ribbon as well, I have some asymmetrical designs in mind coming up with those...

adorned- long asymmetrical style necklace

Created with purely vintage components, it is a pretty yet funky statement piece of jewelry. several strands of antiqued silver chains in different textures and sized combine with awesome turquoise glass and silver connectors, flanked by a cut crystal pendant, white floral carved cabochon on silver filigree, a side closing rhinestone clasp from the 40's and a sparkling strand of faceted Swarovski crystal to complete the look. it is available here
let me know you found it in my blog and I will include a free pair of earrings!

a modern romance- new necklace

I've had this gorgeous really rare vintage art nouveau carved glass pendant for a while... I finally created something romantic with it...
I attached it to a beautiful silver cherub stamping, and added strands of Swarovski crystal, vintage rhinestone rondelles, vintage glass pearls and gunmetal chain in an asymmetrical style. available here

ms.dietrich-my new fave

Inspired by the one and only Marlene Dietrich... this necklace incorporates a gorgeous vintage filigree tie clip which I've turned into a pendant, and attached a pearl and rhinestone encrusted drop. The chain is also vintage, and measures 25 1/2 inches. I love the long style, it would work nicely with a white button up man's top or even an elegant black dress....
