Beat The Heat & Some Summer Bling

Canton Countdown is ON!

It all begins in 36 hours!!

Here's a quick sample of a few of my new designs. It will all be in the shoppe this weekend at First Monday in Canton, Texas. We are located inside Canton Marketplace, on hwy 19 just before you get to the Original Grounds, where the air is nice and coooool!!....Booth 212 Row E.

Stop by and say Hi!

Also, I'd like to give a great big THANK YOU shout out to the super talented, super sweet Riki Schumacher of Romantic Relics for saving my hiney when I accidently deleted the link to her awesome tutorial on soldering rhinestones!! She was such a sweetheart and sent me the link again so I was actually able to finish the bracelets and brass cuffs I'd been working on!! Thanks so much Riki, you Rock!!

Ok...enough talk....onto the pics :)

My Vintage Bling Rings
I LOVE repurposing long forgotten clip-on earrings and turning them into one of a kind cocktail rings...ok, sometimes two of a kind :)

Antique belt and shoe buckles are one of my favorite finds and I love creating stunning wrist wear with them. This old belt buckle is particularly gorgeous. I actually squeeled when I found it!
 It's loaded up with various sizes and styles of chain, vintage rosary beads and my wire wrapped czech glass beads.
I'm so in love with this one.....

Another sweet bracelet. Vintage ladies watch faces, another clip-on earring, brass filligree, a few rhinestones for sparkle and lots of chain and wire wrapped beads. It's adorable.

Mmmmmm........big vintage rhinestones, an old button, vintage rosary beads and more chain in varying sizes and style. Yummy!!

I'm really proud of this little collection.....can you tell....sorry for the shameful boasting :) They're possibly my favorite pieces pieces ever.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Can't wait to see everybody this weekend!!
