Blast From the Past!!!!

Ankle corsages!!!!
For those of you that didn't know me in 2002 you are saying,"WHAT??"

This just makes me GIDDY!!!!
I was doing some cleaning and reorganizing when I found some of my early designs from 2002 Spring and Fall collections!

I was moving...working...and I remember for a moment I stopped making these...I bet that's what happened and when I got back to my jewelry and accessories I had already started making something else! I think I just forgot I even had these...LOL.
How much FUN are these?!
I REMEMBER how I JUST LOVED wearing all these colorful flower combinations!
Many of you that shopped from me back in the day probably remember these!
I found an old photo of my ankle corsages...REMEMBER THOSE??!!!

Oh My goodness...these were what put me on the map!
I got written up in W Magazine for these!

I just think these are TOO CUTE to let sit in a box so I think I'm going to doctor them up and see what happens! I already cut off the ribbon and attached clips to a few for the hair.
What do you think?

Remember how in another post I referred to how designers grow and change?
Well, I think this is a GREAT example of how you can see the development from my early work to my current pieces.
Everything still has the Mikiye Creations flair and sparkle but I think you would agree that my new designs definitely have a sophistication that my originals had yet to find.
Although, the early work clearly displays a sheer playfulness and cheer that cannot be denied and is truly timeless!!!

I like those. I know what you mean about growing and changing as a designer. I haven't been making jewelry that long, but my early stuff is so different from my new pieces.
