I managed to pull myself away from my desk for the holidays, and have been a little slow in my lil' factory over here.  I am a workaholic when it comes to what I love, and creating my latest pieces is my absolute most favorite.  I am really loving what I do, and feel really, really, inspired and wish sometimes I had like eight of me handy, lol.

New Years is approaching and looking back at 09', I have to say this is a year I will never forget.  I finally put myself out there, and found something I could put all of me in, my jewelry.  I have always loved creating and can be a "jill of all trades", but I would always try new things, never finish or lose interest, but now I feel like I am really living my passion, my dream, and that is to create jewelry.  I  would like to thank my husband for the push, and that little voice inside of me that said to just, "let it go and go for it!".  I am glad I did, and I will never look back.  What warms my heart even more, is to see the love and appreciation that others share with me and my work.  What I do is very personal, and I put all of myself and my heart into my work.  I was always afraid to put myself out there, for fear of getting my feelings hurt,  but I am glad that I finally opened up for the world to see. It feels great and I truly appreciate the love and have complete gratitude.  I am looking forward to sharing more of me, living my passion, and dream.  I love what I do, and its the best feeling in the world.  Thanks to know who you are.  Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!!

Home is where the heart is, truly....

One of the benefits of working from home besides freedom, is the special moments that are experienced.  The moments you get to share with those most important in your life.  For me these moments are the ones where my daughter and  I get to act silly, sing and dance together.  Its the laughter, the happiness, and the joy of just being in the moment that are most inspiring to me.

Cake it up sweeties....

It all just came together over the last few weeks with out planning and I am soo psyched about it.
Here is my first collection The Eat Cake Mary Antoinette Collection.  The necklace from my one of my recent blogs already sold and was my absolute favorite ( I had to make myself one).  I sold a few of the rings and earrings and I am so inspired and can't wait to make some more designs and share them with you.  

She showed up on my door step yesterday...and I <3 her!!!

**Note after just a few weeks of my pieces being on etsy,  my Eat Cake Line is currently being imitated by another Etsy Seller, so beware of unoriginal "copycakers".  The cake may look similiar, but it sure doesn't taste the same.**  Thanks and enjoy!

I was watching the film Marie Antoinette by Sophia Coppola a few weeks ago, and was reminded of why I loved the movie soooo much.  The eye candy in this movie is so lovely, beautiful and inspiring to me.  The color palette, the sweets, the clothes, the shoes, its just soooo gorgeous and captures an opulance and decadance that I just adore.   In my pieces I incorporate an essence of Marie Antoinette, but with a modern funky twist as I did in my most recent pieces.  I really admired her sense of style and its over the top luxurious fabulousness (I know that can't be right, but oh well, lol.) Love her or hate her she will continue to be muse for all forms of art, including my own.  You should definately check the film out, a definate visual feast for those who can appreciate that aspect of the film.

*Note:   Images are off of google images and will get them linked as soon as hubby teaches me, lol.  Thanks.

New Stuff....

Some new goodies for all you craving the cute stuff and wanting more eye candy.  I did a few pieces last week and was extremly pleased with them and here they are...

The first of the two is Sweet Marie Antoinette Loves Emeralds and Pearls, a cute and fun necklace that you can dress up or wear with simple tee and still look sweet and sophisticated with a cute twist of course.  Load of big pearls and crystal beads, sure to please the gal who like to do things big, and with style.  And then there is the cutest little kawaii kitty in town, Ming Bling.  A cute kitty filling your heart with joy and wishing you lots of luck.  This necklace is adorned with tons of asian inspired trinkets and treasures and blinged out with glass iridescent crystals.  Perfect for a lover of all things kawaii and kitties.

Oh! and by the way, I am giving a free gift with a purchase of $40.00 or more over at my Esty shop  Take a look around, and give a unique gift to someone special, or even yourself, lol. ;op Hugs and kisses.

Holiday Hiatus...

Its been awhile since my last post...I have been busy decorating and shopping for the holidays, working on my pieces little by little.  I have a few new pieces coming in time for the holiday shopping frenzy next week...I am hoping (crossing fingers) for big things this holiday season.  It will be my first holiday season in my shop, and don't know what to expect, so lets hope for the best.

In the meantime here is my new necklace Gimme That Good Stuff....Feast your eyes on this piece of eye candy...Its one of my most favorites so far, besides the Lick It Up Necklace which I just reposted since it went so fast.  I also have lots of new cool bubble rings in various different color combos.  Happy shopping this week and most importantly Happy Thanksgiving! Love & Kisses.

Sleigh bells ring...Are you listening???

Its that time of year can hear the holiday music playing in the store, and all the holiday displays are up.  Thinking of what gifts you can get this year and on what budget.  Well I started thinking about the holidays a few weeks back and have made a couple holiday inspired pieces that are inspired by a pastel retro color palette, and lots of glitter and sprinkles.  This year in my home I will be going very retro too.  I just love the tinsel trees, but don't know if I can spare the bucks for one this year.  So for now I have my little pink cashmere tree in my office, up since mischeif night, for inspiration and just cause I think it rocks, I love it!!! I think I will leave it up all year round this time around, its pink and soo adorable.  So how is everyone going to decorate their homes?  What are your ideas and feelings?  I would love to hear?

These candy looking sweeties will be rings and things....

My pink tree...I love her.

Sweet Joy...

Sweet Joy! My inner child is doing cart wheels lately...I have been having soo much fun with my latest sweet resin obsession.  I have always loved working with lots of color and have found the perfect thing to express myself with.  I hope people love them as much as I do, I will keep making more of these cuties and if they don't sell, I am going to have alot of fun stuff to give away and wear, for me and my daughter.  Time will tell.

A celebration...

I have always been a fan of Madonna since day one, I was four years old and remember how much I wanted to dress like her.  She looked different from anything I had seen at the time and I like everyone fell in love with her style, her look, and her pop music.  And I was not alone it was Madonna Mania.

Two of my new resin pieces are inspired by my childhood fave.  The trendsetter of the 80's with a look that inspired all girls to look like boytoys, and and dress up with bows and lacey gloves and layer on the accessories.  A look that has very much come back with this 80's revival going on in fashion and jewelry.  Layers of chains, big and bold, pearls, lace, bows, leggings, all of it.  Its back in full force, and I love it, since I was too little to indulge in it as much as I wanted to.  I have name too of my pieces after the earlier Madonna, necklaces Boytoy and Like a Virgin.  They are fun, cute, sassy, sexy, and edgy.  It a retro revival and I am loving it.  The sequins, the lace, the high gloss materials, the corsets, and the big bold jewelry so chic.
