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.

I did it to myself...I started listening to my Malt Shop Memories Album. But It will do me some good this time around. I am feeling super inspired and will be doing some cool stuff. I just have to organized my thoughts and will try (crosses fingers) to narrow some things down. A tough task for me to handle, being that I love to try and do everything!!!! Oh boy, here we go. In the meantime come take a trip down memory lane with down in the Jersey Shore....I just love the Wildwoods and Cape May. Its like vintage and retro heaven, for me. I plan to get a house there someday, maybe if I sell enough jewelry, you guys could help me out and we can have pool parties and stuff, lol. ;o) Alot of my inspiration comes from the special times there with my family soo here we are having fun....

I am the candy girl and I am just loving the fun I have been having with my latest obsession...resin!!! I just love working with the stuff and seeing the possibilities. I have done a few pieces before, but lately I have been making more time to play and have fun with all the sprinkles, glitter and candy. Its just soooo sweet and looks so good I want to lick it, and eat it. I am making lots of rings and things, new styles and designs, lots of learning and playing with the resin concoctions. Practice makes perfect, and I am loving this process so far. I will be posting my pieces on a daily basis @ etsy, so keep an eye out, and love the eye candy. Great stocking stuffers and gifts. They are soooo yummy.
