When I first started this blog I talked about my Victorian Panorama Purse. Of course I was extremely excited about it because it took me so long to create! Truly a tour de force! At that time I decided to keep it around a while just so I could admire my handiwork a little longer. (Actually, you'd think that after spending 4 - 6 months on it I wouldn't ever want to see it again, but it had the opposite effect!)
Something with that much heart, soul, and so much hard work invested in it is hard to part with!!
So after much adieu I have finally decided to put it in my shop!!! I hope it will go to someone who loves it as much as I!!!
Recently some friends of mine lost a close family member in death. A beloved mother and grandmother. She was in her late 90's, contributed greatly to the community, and will be sorely missed by many. My heart goes out to them.
A few weeks ago I was given a necklace that her daughter received from her. She asked me to use the beads to make her some jewelry with it. I was excited but a little daunted by the fact that this was from her mother. I forged ahead.
I wish I would have taken some pictures of the necklace before I changed it. It was a short, simple two-strand necklace with all red beads. Very pretty. However, the length needed to be changed a bit for her daughter to wear more frequently, and she requested matching clip-on earrings as well. Here are the end results - a necklace, earrings, and bracelet. . . .
Recently I introduced you to treasuries wherein I shared some that I created. Now it's time to share some of the treasuries others have created that have included my items! They include all kinds of interesting things! Have fun!!
