O Happy Day!
First of all, thank you so much for all the sweet comments and messages yesterday about my shop opening! Each one meant so much! I’ve been wanting to do this for a LONG time, and I decided to just set a date and go for it. I’m really looking forward to sharing some more of my work and running my own little shop. Exciting!
I’m also excited because, today, I’m starting a giveaway for not just one, but TWO (well, technically 3, if you count each earring) pieces of jewelry. These are little sneak peaks of similar pieces I’ll be selling in my Etsy shop that opens Tuesday, September 2nd.
First is my Fancy Red necklace. I found two vintage red necklaces that were almost identical within a week of each other in totally different places.
In addition to the vintage beads, I used 14K gold filled wire, clasp, and chain. I reused the vintage “gold” spacer beads from the original necklace for detail.
The necklace is approximately 18″ long and sits just below the collar bone.
I might like this one even better than my Rouge is Fancy necklace – but I won’t keep it, I promise.
The winner of this giveaway will also receive a pair of Gold Marquise earrings. These were inspired by my Go For the Gold Earrings that I made from a thrifted necklace. I wear the originals of these all the time, so I searched around until I found some new 14K gold filled marquise hoops to recreate them.
The hoops hang from 14K gold filled handmade ear wires.
These simple earrings pair well with a bold necklace – and pretty much anything else, really.
