My So Charmed Life

So Charmed



My neighbor Katy and I don’t generally ask one another to borrow a cup of sugar or an egg. We have, however, been known to knock on the door inquiring after spare dressmaker’s dummies, scraps of fabric, books about fashion & sewing, or an opinion about a new creation.

Recently, Katy stopped by in a newly thrifted crisp white dress and asked if I had any accessories lying about that might take the look from prim to primitive.

With just about my entire jewelry stock currently on view at the Curiouser & Curiouser exhibition, I offered to whip something up, you know, custom.

Katy went off to China and I headed into my studio to create a special gypsy bangle stack, just for her.

Ingredients include a glittery Bollywood bangle, rust, vintage tattered sari ribbon from India, handmade clay beads, a quartz crystal point, MOP shell heart charm, vintage ruby charm, Indonesian glass, beach shell, wire, chain, and lots of prim-no-more goodness. It’s been a busy month so if you’re in need of a bangle stack and tired of waiting for them to appear over at So Charmed, just holla and I’ll get to making you you’re very own.

    Jodi, these are just perfect. I kept trying to download the pics in China and it would give me 20% of the first pic and stop. Exquisite torture. See you soon.

    They look fantastic Jodi! What a talent you have! I can never work out where to start with something like these. Think I might have to have a squizz at your etsy store. :)
    Have just popped over from Jody’s place, I’m one of the other Op Swappers.

      Hi Pam, thanks so much… and I know what you mean. Starting is the hardest part. Or maybe stopping is hard too?! No, I think knowing where to start is definitely harder (for me) than knowing where to stop. Of course the truth is, you can start… anywhere!
