art and heirlooms...

Thanks to Amy's Storque article, I got myself in gear last week and made a few new pieces for my Etsy shop. Which was hard to do as we are currently homeless but blessed to be staying with my in-laws for the time being. I was able to visit home recently and my mom and I spent some time sorting through boxes of old family treasures- many of which I used in these pieces- my Aunt Helen's costume jewelry, and our great- grandmother's amazing millinery bridal headpiece. (Don't worry, I was careful and we kept many special pieces for the future- but most is better preserved in art, right? Anyway, I hope they would be pleased.) xo

Those are wonderful pieces of art. My daughter and I do repurposed jewelry and I have come to believe that people now have them out of boxes and can appreciate them. Except for the very special things!

I love your sense of color...just magnificent. I am so glad you are back because I love watching what you do!

Keep making those old treasures into new treasures!
