Changing diapers, filling sippy cups, tackling piles of laundry, helping with homework, deleting 200+ emails that are informing me of multi millions I've won and/or inherited, meeting deadlines, biting my tongue trying NOT to drop the F bomb in front of the kiddos when I step on a wooden block, barefoot and just perfectly on the pointy corner and scarfing down my lunch over the sink so I can hurry up and make good use of extra time in the studio during nap time. Romance is something I have to create myself and it doesn't happen in the wine n dine sort of way
sadly but rather in my sketch pad and by pulling various chains, beads, fibers, stones, metals etc. lol!
Every girl needs a little romance even if it's by wearing a piece of pretty-ness around her neck while she's moping floors or dodging cheerios being launched by a 1 yr old.
I like to dress up even if I have no where to go...which is pretty much every day (having no where to go I mean or rather no where exciting.) Full makeup, a cute outfit, spunky shoes and some fun or pretty accessories just makes me feel better. And when I get to sit down at my work table and create something that I hope will make the person who wears it feel feminine, fun or romantic and pretty, well that just makes my day. Yes, I realize I'm babbling but I'm just in one of those moods today...but I really love this piece.
This necklace oh how I love it so! Chunky chain, a few wire wrapped faceted sparklies for charms and a pendant that I created by layering a few different bits and baubles. I used a strip of rhinestones in an antiqued finish and created a fancy bezel around the pretty purple faceted Lucite cab. It was already set in a bezel but it was just a plain no frills bezel and it called for some extra bling.
oh! and you can find this necklace HERE.
