Valentine's Day is here so I wanted to show these hearts that I made alongside this new silver bracelet. As much as I try, I can't stick with just one "thing". I have made jewelry for a long time and I love it. When the lockdown came (almost a year ago now) and the simultaneous canceling of every art show I was planning to attend, I found myself with more time on my hands.
First I turned to knitting (wonderfully addictive, calming and just plain fun) then to an old love of mine, sewing. When I came across an idea for these little patchwork hearts, I just could not resist. I think I made about 10 of them. Aren't they the cutest??
Happy Valentine's Day, y'all!
What's new? Zippered Jewelry Bags!
I don't know about you, but I absolutely love zippered bags! I love 'em big, I love 'em small, any size at all, that are always useful for something! It's been so much fun making these bags in all sorts of fun Christmas fabric. The fabric is kind of "recycled" or, more accurately, saved from the trash bin. These is a small fabric store that has little ends of bolts and other small scraps from their own projects that would otherwise be thrown away. I love to search through and pick up some of these pieces and give them new life. So, that's recycled but new fabric, right?
Oh, and that tassel! Do you love tassels as much as I do? The tassels on the new bags can be used to decorate any bag or purse or on your keychain for a little extra something!
Anyway, go here if you want to check out the bags. I'll be adding more bags each day so come back & see what's new!
I love the look of these black chains - classic designs with a modern black edge, turning the classic into a contemporary design. Perfect with everything, even in the summertime because why not? You can wear black in the summer or accessorize with black!
