You’ll see what I mean. This is just a simple combination of elements – a colorful vintage glass jewel in a faceted octagon shape, and a sparkling round rhinestone. When you combine them, you get more than the sum of the parts:
Add an earwire, these will make fabulous earrings. Slip on a sturdy jump ring or hand-wire to a looped bead or bail and you’ve got a fabulous pendant. Use two-ring settings and they’re bracelet or necklace connectors. You see what I mean? One simple design idea – combine colors and shapes. And you’ve got endless possibilities.
And the stones are available in my Etsy shop of course 🙂
Now this is a party dress. Vivid red. Chiffon. Meant to be twirly.
Of course this dress would be perfect for your Christmas party – and it’s that rare garment that’s modest enough for your office party – but still totally babelicious and sexy. You will WEAR this dress!
And it’s even affordable! It’s from JDBok, a special vintage shop on Etsy and it tells you without words why I love vintage so much. Special, unusual, wonderful garments. Fair pricing. Small business. And it’s so much better than buying a new (expensive)(cookie-cutter) dress.
Now this is a party dress!
Such a pretty color! I used to think peach was a spring color – but boy was I wrong. It’s one of my best-selling colors, year-round… and I think the fresh and feminine shade is especially appealing in winter. I just wanted to show off a few new rhinestone jewels I’ve gotten in recently:
I think my personal favorites are the petite 14x10mm teardrops (just a little over 5/8″ x 3/8″). What can I say, they feel girly and pretty. And the large oval? Fabulous pendant. You don’t need a lot of fuss when you’ve got good basics.
And these jewels are good basics!
