|All handcrafted by me except safari necklace|
I did get dressed today, in a pretty cute outfit. Unfortunately not a single picture turned out to be usable. So, no outfit pic today. Sorry about that. The above is the results of my remarkably productive evening. Every once in a while I get creatively inspired and find it necessary to create. This usually leads to a jewelry binge. A trip to Hobby Lobby yielded some great finds - the giant clear teardrops and the animal print drops. The clear necklace was inspired by an aqua one Kendi and Petite Early Morning Style have worn. I loved it and have been trying to recreate it for a while. I finally found the teardrops in a decent size. I can't wait to wear it. The Beloved's reaction: "Isn't a little over the top?" Absolutely! He just shrugged. (Just so you know, the matching earings are not be worn with the necklace. That would be a little much.)
The only piece above that I didn't make is the animal necklace. It was given to me by some dear friends years ago after a mission trip to Africa. The string broke years ago and it has been sitting in a bag awaiting repair ever since. I finally got to it tonight. I've never worn it because that style of necklace wasn't 'in' back in the nineties when I received it. Each animal is handcarved and the beads are all obviously handmade. Isn't it awesome. I love having truly one of a kind pieces.
Not to toot my own horn here, but if you see something you like, let me know and I can make one for you. Usually for under $20. I'm considering the idea of an Etsy shop, but I'll have to do some research first.
Night ya'll! (By ya'll, I mean Erin) ;)
