I have been designing a lot more with mixed media lately; using leather, mixed metals and vintage and contemporary. I have quite a few new pieces to show off with this posting, I hope you are inspired. Looking through my design books and paging through the months on my Swarovski calender I have come across some really great inspirational pieces which motivated me to look back at some of my older work. I decided I would incorporate some of those ideas, with a few changes, into my new pieces. It's funny how easily I forget about my older work - always pushing forward.....
I have also been working on what I call catalog pages for my designs. I think I am going to make them into postcards to hand out or, I might also design another online catalog like the ones to the right of my home page......or, maybe I will just do both.... :-)
Of Note: In the pictures below, the bracelet to the right, with the upcycled vintage brooch, shows two colors of purple. The true color of the purple glass is in the top picture. I think a shadow makes the elongated bracelet look much darker than it is.
I hope you are inspired to create something beautiful.
Talk to you soon!
