So one my good friends, Stephanie F., was looking around on Pinterest and she found some styles that called out to her and she asked me to create some styles similar to the ones she liked. I looked up the unique style and it is called "Coachella" or a kind of bohemian style where fashionistas have displayed their newest looks at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California. Stephanie has always been on the forefront of fashion and I have never seen her wearing anything that is not deemed to be chic, cute, or fashion-forward. I hope you like them!
I don't know why I was drawn to use this mixture of caramels, golds, swirly creamy polished Citrine beads,
iridescent crystals, and gold accents. I thought about adding some browns, but I just wanted to keep it
light. I fashioned the design from a necklace that I bought 10 years ago when I was stationed in Kuwait
and was able to go downtown to Kuwait City and browse some market stores, thus developing my love
for jewelry. Interesting that this memory is in the same tones as the desert...hmm. I almost don't want to
part with it because it truly is a sparkling piece that will attract much attention and keep the classic look
(for decades, apparently!). But for $34 (incl. matching earrings), this unique and one of a kind piece will
be a beautiful match for a neutral wardrobe.
Old Becomes New (Vintage Styles)
One of my dear friends (and one of my best sales consultants) gathered a whole bunch of vintage jewelry
she had collected over the years and asked me to re-make the jewelry into new pieces, but to keep the
vintage flair. I love projects like these because I can truly be creative, but sometimes I do hope that I am
creating pieces that my clients truly love because they have a vision for the sets and I hope to match their
vision. I have already made more than 20 necklace sets, rings, and bracelets for her. I didn't realize that I
had made that many until I counted them later and I'm still not finished!
Just a note: I love re-making jewelry for my clients, so if you're interested in a new look for your old jewelry,
please feel free ton contact me by e-mail: email@example.com
Engagement Party Request
One of my dearest clients got engaged this year and
wanted to celebrate the news at a party with close
friends and family. She requested an orange and
brown long necklace to match her cute orange dress.
I knew how much she loves matching sets, so I
included a matching memory wire bracelet and some
adorable hoop earrings. This set has murano glass
beads, pearls, ceramic beads, crystal rondelles,
hammered metal spacers and glass beads.
Antique gold Inspirations
One of the my best sales representatives that I have been blessed to know
is TaLisa W. who is a down-to-earth, intelligent, independent Delta soro,
"fashion-divanista" and a good friend. She doesn't know it yet, but she will
be rocking this antique gold twisted chain necklace. I added three linked
iridescent studded chains and linked creamy white pearls together along with
crystal rondelle glass beads on a chain and wove them in between the
braided chain. This was a time-consuming piece, but she is worth it for all of
her help with selling wares for me. Thank you, TaLisa, for all of your hard
work and effort. I appreciate your kindness and your time.
So one of my fashion-forward clients ordered a long "casual-cowgirl" sheik
necklace set for a wedding with these colors: cognac and pearls. So I gave her
amber-colored glass murano beads with foil inlay, cognac colored pearls and
faceted glass beads, beige dyed shell beads with an iridescent finish, white,
amber and champagne colored pearls, on a antique gold
chain. I made dangling matching earrings and a added pearls and crystal
rondelles to a bracelet set. Hope she has a great time!
I know, I know. This is definitely different and not my usual style, but I
do make custom jewelry! A fashionista hair stylist immediately
requested a lipstick styled necklace. I thought it would be easy to find
some lipstick pendants, but turns out, no so. I found some cute
pendants and painted the tips with acrylic paint that was hand-
mixed. Then I coated the tips with high-gloss finish.
But, can you tell what they used to be?
My very fashion-forward friend girl requested a twisted lemon yellow
misty gray necklace. At first, I wondered what the two different colors
would look like together, but afterward, I can see why she has such
fashionable taste. I adore this necklace so much that I might have to
keep it myself! So what do you think about the color combination?
