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!
