Lovin' Statement Necklaces! (and repurposed vintage jewelry)

My latest creative endeavor (jewelry-wise) is using old blingy jewelry pieces, vintage earrings, brooches and the like, and recycling them into gorgeous NEW pieces, esp. statement necklaces, and statement cocktail rings. And I am especially fond of pieces with rhinestones!

I used one of a pair of old earrings to make this piece.

THEN, I came across this piece in a magazine, which was apparently in an episode of the TV show Lipstick Jungle!

I swear I never saw it before I made my piece. Not bad I think! Go to my shop and check it out, and more like this.

Fiona Paxton, LOVE her designs. Drew Barrymore, Isla Fisher do too!

Really I do. I cannot remember how I stumbled upon her pieces, but I covet them!
Drew Barrymore loves them too.
If I could figure out how to duplicate one, I would!
Check out her website for more gorgeousness.

Knitting for a Great Cause

I am still designing jewelry for shows and my website, but I also knit and crochet. My favorite charity for knitted and crochet items is Afghans for Afghans. Here's some info for you to check out. I personally am working on a blanket, in a lovely blue denim colored wool. Hopefully I'll get a picture up soon! In the meantime, check out their site!
