I couldn't resist this Edwardian applique and these little silver buttons. Right now I am beginning to explore a new look which incorporates simple black dresses, boleros, applique and tribal jewelry. It will give me a chance to be a bit creative and enjoy the process of watching a piece develop.
I just had to get this it's such a fabulous antique belt in great condition. Luckily for me it is a large Victorian size. I would like to embellish it a bit, I'm thinking some vintage metal trim and applique with a leather backing for support.
I really like chunky bracelets so I wrapped some vintage material around these two and embellished them a little. They look beautiful with the right outfit.
I am so excited about my newest purchase. This antique vest was possibly part of a fortune tellers outfit! It is so beautiful that it doesn't matter if it wasn't. I love it anyway.

Each of my works carries with it a piece of my life, reflecting the time and environment in which it was created. They are all incredibly personal and special to me and I am deeply honored when the work becomes a part of the narrative of other lives as well. It is with the greatest thanks to my dear friends Grant and Tasha that I am able to post this precious image of their collection. Their home is a monument to wonderful art, eclectic and soulful and completely reflects the warm and enthusiastic natures of their new owners. What a privilege it is to see these pieces happily situated and I'm sure very much loved.
