Black Friday through Cyber Monday - Super Fantasic Sale!

Oh yes, I've gone and done it. I'm taking 20% off my already probably too low prices for you - yeah you! Why? Because I love Christmas, I love making jewelry, and if you're reading this right now, I love you! And let's face it. The economy has been  none too kind to most of us lately, so I think we can all use a break!

So here's how it's going to work: Starting Black Friday (Nov. 27) and running through Cyber Monday (Nov. 30), all items in my Etsy shop will be 20% off. And I'm not stopping there! Free shipping for friends and family - woot! I'll refund you the shipping via Paypal after your purchase.

That's what happens when you're in tight with the designer. Bam. Good deals.

If for some reason you don't have Paypal or don't want to do the internet thing, just contact me and we'll work something out. Chances are, I know where you live so I'm not worried about non-payment ;) Hehe.

Happy Shopping!

Vintage Style Lovelies

Ok, yes I admit it. I love vintage. I love the word itself, all the images it conjures, the way it rolls off the tongue. If I could time travel back into the 30's or 40's I totally would just to wear all those gorgeous clothes! Well since I'm a lousy seamstress, I made a couple adorable necklaces instead. Ha.

Madalynn (sold out)- I named this necklace after my late Grandma Corrington. She was such a hoot. Theatrical, dramatic, even a little rebellious. I'll always remember her bright red lipstick, fake eyelashes and fantastic wigs. Hmmm, that must be where I get my own love of the aforementioned - it's genetic! It's all starting to make sense now...

Amaranthine Rose (sold out) - Yup, throwing in another definition here. I like words, get used to it.

1. of or like the amaranth
2. unfading; everlasting: a woman of amaranthine loveliness. 
3. of purplish-red color.

Pick any of those three meanings and I think this necklace could personify them. I adore everything about this piece. The color of the beads is such a gorgeous antique plum! I love the smoothness of the antique brass flower, the way it adds just enough vintage charm without seeming dated. Yeah it won't be easy to let go of this one...

Amaranthine Roses - I loved the necklace so much I made matching earrings. Kind of a new thing for me since I'm not a huge fan of too much matchy matchy. They really look phenomenal together though!

Even more unfading loveliness here!

Don't worry, many more vintage lovelies to come!

Filigree Fanatic!


1. delicate ornamental work of fine silver, gold, or other metal wires, esp. lacy jewelers' work of scrolls and arabesques.
2.  anything very delicate or fanciful: a filigree of frost.


Delicate, ornamental, fanciful and just plain gorgeous - I can't get enough of filigree!! I think my special love of filigree came from my Dad. Shocking, I know.

Back when he was in college, my Grandma gave him a box of four silver plastic filigree ornaments for his Christmas tree. He kept them forever. I don't remember a single Christmas from my childhood that my Dad didn't insist on hanging all four ornaments himself. What a tough guy... ;)

Juliette (sold out)- This necklace literally takes my breath away. I honestly don't know if I can bear to sell it. Juliette is  everything that is soft and feminine: Ballet, lace, pastel pink, roses, pearls.  Just unabashed girliness and romance all wrapped up in one delicate necklace. Yeah, I'm in love.

Cranberry Cocktail - (sold out) This necklace looks tasty enough to drink! I just love the gorgeous ruby red beads of this necklace, especially because I had to bargain for them. Yep. Half the strand was missing but I knew they were perfect for my vision of this necklace so I wheeled and dealed and got 'em on sale and half off. Oh yeah.

This is another necklace I love so much I don't even want to sell. Seriously - I need to get over that. But I mean just look at it! Bright red, sparkly, full of festive cheeriness, and just perfect for that holiday formal or cocktail party. What's not to love?

Queen Anne - I may have gone a little over the top on this one but I don't care, it was too pretty not to make. This necklace is an ornate Victorian style explosion of filigree fanciness. The ivory rose cabochon came to me all the way from South Korea. I was so impatient to get it, I stalked the mailman for 2 weeks! I realize this necklace isn't for the faint of heart, but do you think Queen Anne or Queen Elizabeth were faint of heart? I think not!

Pay homage to Queen Anne here

There is no way I have exhausted my fancy for filigree yet, so be assured you will see much, much more in the future!

Coming out of the Cocoon

The butterfly motif is popping up a lot in my designs these days. Believe it or not, I found these gorgeous butterflies in the necklaces below at Walmart...they used to be earrings...Ssshhh don't tell!

Moonlight Sonata - (sold out) This necklace literally came to me in the middle of the night. All of a sudden *poof* I could see it plain as day in my mind's eye. And it just wouldn't go away. So I had to make it.

One word to describe the way this necklace makes me feel when I wear it is: Elegant.

Midnight Mariposa - Besides butterflies, I'm also really into asymmetrical necklace designs lately. I just love the look. This necklace is near and dear to my heart because it's so delicate and I'm completely in love with the frosty green rondelles. It was also a royal pain in the arse to make - the chain refused to cooperate with me!

See more of this necklace here!

Be on the lookout for more butterflies in the future...I'm sure there are even more creative cocoons waiting to open!
