Holday Preview

You know those nights where you accidentally start drinking coffee at 9pm, and then you freeze your butt off in your studio until 2 am while watching Lara Croft Tomb Raider because you have this incredible burst of creative energy? No, you don't know what I'm talking about?
Well, I had one of those experiences last night. I'm paying for it today, I'm a little loopy. But I have to say, I'm pretty jazzed on my latest edition to my array of handmade treasures. I've tossed around the idea of using metal strips and wire for cuff bracelets before, but I finally made a series, and can I say, I LOVE it. What I've come up with are completely adjustable cuffs that are not for the "costume jewelry faint of heart." Each one is a bold statement piece. Here are just a couple that are almost finished, but expect to see a slew of them at my upcoming craft shows including Handmade Brigade (this sunday), Patchwork, and UniqueLA.

Skoulture at it's finest. ohmygoodnessilovethisonesomuch!
I'm going to have a hard time ever parting with this one.

Skoulture cuff: materials include a Sunburst brooch and layers of
vintage buttons and neon orange rhinestones with a diamond-esque cut.

Alice couture cuff with a Tim Burton Flair

Alice couture cuff materials include black lace and
checkered vintage buttons, layered with the collage patch.

and of course I didn't forget....

New Knuckle Rings
including several new "triple threat" 3 finger versions.

NOTE: None of these items are listed yet, so if there's something that strikes your fancy and you would like for me to place it on hold for you, I will be happy to! Otherwise, see them in person this Sunday from 11-5 at The Camp for the Handmade Brigade of OC Indie Craft show.

Happy Halloween, too.
