Is it the holiday season yet?

First of friends are GORGEOUS!!! Just look at these photos taken by the talented photographer Denise Bovee (Here's here site). Denise contacted me through Facebook almost a year ago. She had found my jewelry on etsy and asked if I'd be interested in a trade... jewelry for a photoshoot. After looking at her incredible photography style, it was obvious that I desperately needed to take advantage of her talents. It took a long time, but we finally found a day that worked for both of us (and luckily my friends too) to schedule the shoot! We met at Denise's sister-in-law's dreamy vintage cottage in La Verne. I wanted not only every piece of furniture she owned, but all of the wall decor as well. The backyard was to-die-for, right out of a summer evening in the south. My absolutely stunning friends Gen, Sarah, and Emily dressed up in a mix of vintage dresses and furs and Denise and I styled my jewelry around her impressive vintage clothing collection. Here are my 3 favorite photos from the shoot....

Genny Penny wearing my massive Ram neckplate and filigree knuckle ring

How hot is Sarah? She is my resident foxy lady (and muse).
I just listed this Foxy Fringe necklace in my etsy shop

Emily JUST got her hair trimmed before the shoot and this cut is so cute on her, it's ridiculous.
She likes so precious in this Fringy Cameo necklace.

And I guess this is as good a time as any to update on my holiday show schedule!!

Things have been busy at Loschy Studios! I had a great time vending at the LA Roller Derby on Saturday Night. My man and a bunch of his friends attended for the first time, and I think it's safe to say they are derby fans now. It's definitely my favorite sport to watch live. I was surprised to sell some of my larger, statement animal jewelry, overall it was a success!

On Sunday, my mom came along with me (and a very patient BF, THANKS KEVIN!) to the Aura Fashion Gallery's Grand Opening in Newport Beach. They had a dj set-up and free sofia champagne in a can. LOVE those! It was really exciting to see my jewelry as part of visual merchandising in the store. My mom took plenty of photos, of course. Typical mom thing, but I'd regret not having any photos later.

Perhaps the thing I'm MOST thrilled about is all of the vintage and broken jewelry lot's I purchased on Etsy. I never knew there were so many destash mixed piece lots in the supply section! I purchased 4 and had to stop myself from buying a bunch more. I'm aware that I won't be able to use nearly half of the pieces, but the lots are so inexpensive that it makes it worth while.
