A welcome gift...
time to play and create, even paint, in my sun filled studio!
But before wrapping and storing away Holiday decorations I'd like to share a few of my favorite creations...
The first is a before and after snapshot of my latest bejeweled design.
The cone shaped, mirrored with glitter decoration was purchased at Marshall's for $9.00 on sale as it was missing it's top piece.
I couldn't resist the merry and bright possibilities it held, though at the time I wasn't clear on how I would be embellishing it.
It was probably the beauties of Margaret Larkin showcased at Rodgers Gardens that gave me the inspiration a few days later.
Not owning much costume jewelry I chose to pull out my button box and pilfer thru looking for all the silver toned buttons I could find, and anything else that wanted to be included in the same genre. Using straight pins with pearl heads I was able to attach a plethora of pretties, and amazingly I just happened to have a vintage footed silver tray that fit perfectly as a pedestal.
I love that it can evolve and other colors can be added as one wishes
and favorites can be removed easily and still worn.
