Last week I worked on some new necklaces and several Valentine charm bracelets. My inspiration came from an article I read about Victorian miniatures and secret admirers.

I love mixing colors in unexpected ways. The colors in this picture are two colors I wouldn't necessarily think to put together, but I absolutely love this combination. I am always drawn to the red palette, so I already have some beads in those tones. I'm going to see if I can find a similar shade of blue to work with. When I'm done, I'll post the finished design,

Three New Button Bracelets

Inspired by my love of classic movies and favorite movie actresses, I have started a series of button bracelets. They remind me of all those scenes when an actress such as Grace Kelly or Myra Loy walks into a club, "dressed" for dinner, a wonderful dash of sparkle on each wrist. The Grace Kelly is my favorite so far. I held onto this button for so long, waiting for the perfect beads to set it off.

More photos to be posted soon.
