Jewelry: New items!

Victorian Romance Pearl Drop Earrings

I've always had a thing for pearls.  There's something about them that's just so classic.  I like sparkly things too, but something about the lustrous shimmer of a pearl is incredibly elegant.  I'm a big fan of period pieces and I made these because they remind me of the beautiful Gibson Girls of the late 19th century.

My Darling Cuckoo Necklace

I love love love this piece!  I'm probably going to wear it out today.  It's all in the details.  The cuckoo clock and the swallow are tiny, yet they're incredibly detailed pieces of art.  I have the pearl wearing a little leafy hat also.  Too adorable!  There's a whimsical vintage-bohemian charm to it that I find irresistible.

Vintage Rose Swarovski Drop Earrings

These crystal drop earrings are just plain pretty!  I used very high-quality Swarovski crystals in a sublime vintage-rose shade.  You can tell by the weight, the facets, and just the way they sparkle in the light that these aren't cheap plastic beads that you would find at Forever 21.  The scalloped bead caps are particularly elegant. They have fine, millegrain detailing that reminds me of the Art Deco period.  I can't wait to wear them to my next dressy event!
