My love for all things vintage once again managed to find it's way into my Spring 2011 designs. My apologies for all of you that have been checking back here and in my shop for the new collection. My health has been up and down so I haven't listed everything new as planned! But, I should have everything up this month!
Here are two of my favorite pieces.
This first piece I used some fantastic vintage brass pieces I found years ago. I really enjoyed using delicate lace filigree and wire basically sewing all the flowers, rhinestones and Swarovski crystals onto the base. It never occurred to me before to use wire and metal like needlework on fabric. I am really happy how well this piece turned out. A LOT of detail that is not easily captured in my unprofessional photos.
I used various sizes of clear Swarovski crystals all over so it REALLY sparkles without feeling overly bling bling in my opinion.
