I miss being a fashion designer. It was everything I ever wanted since I was 13 years old, and my time in NYC making clothes was magical. One of the best parts of putting together my runway shows was creating the jewelry pieces. For my shows, it was the bigger the better! This piece is an homage to that time in my life. It's big, bold and perfect for a party! Can you believe that hot glue was used to make the roese? It's such a great way to make jewelry components and it's much quicker than you think. I may just wear this piece around the house with my bathrobe. Wear what you want, my fabulous friends, and always Make Your Mark!
Big, bold and beautiful!
It reminds me of Victorian mourning jewelry
I learned how to hammer aluminum wire for this piece. So much fun!

DecoArt's Metallic Lustre is amazing stuff! A great way to bring out the details of a molded piece.
Happy New Year!
