This week is that final slide into the new year. I hope you enter this week satisfied and spent in a good way. I'm feeling pretty good. Reflective without remorse. I wanted to post something pretty for the last or nearly last post of the year. Actually I think I post something pretty most of the time and so it is quite fitting to close the year with handmade beauty and the friendships such work inspires.
Aren't layers just delicious?
Seriously, sexy right?
This pewter cameo was found at the Canton, Texas flea market.
The entire ensemble...I met Lisa after I designed the necklace and packaging. She is gorgeous and laid back, with a hippie feminine chic quality. Once I took in her delicious style, I even more excited that my creation would be a great fit.
Here is Lisa opening it at Swap night in Omaha in November of 2010.
Look at cute dear sweet Franc Franke sitting next to Lisa.
This necklace is a generous melange of rhinestones, pearl birds, robin's egg blue, tarnished brass, silver and gold.
Rita managed to make this piece full of intrigue and yet somehow delicate.
That would describe Rita herself. I adore this woman.
I adore her.
Thank you Suz for this year of friendship, laughter and tears.
Thank you Rita for you whom I enjoy just knowing out there in the world.
