The rain has been falling softly this morning in perenially sunny Southern California. Cool and breezy, with the promise of sunshine peeking through at any moment. I love these periods of "in-between", anticipation of warmer days and the abundant flowers of May.
But for today, the droplets on the studio windows seem to be echoing the shine and sparkle that lies within, waiting to be carefully wrapped in tissue and sent away to become the lovliest of projects and heirloom treasures.
Shine and sparkle, soulful metallics and precious keepsakes. We love April!!!
This month's crown is truly a handmade wonder. Freshwater pearls, Austrian crystals and molded leaves, all wire-wrapped to floral perfection!
This is an astonishingly beautiful sequin fabric. Creamy organza and glorious silver sequins. Soft and drapey, yet with a great weight and "hand". Just gorgeous! 54" wide.
$25.00 per yard.
The absolute sweetest organza with tiny flowers appliqued on, finished with a light sprinkling of pale gold sequins. This fabric is white, and we cannot wait to tea dye a piece to see what magic that creates! 54" wide.
$22.00 per yard.
Oh, my. This was yet another case of a dusty box yielding the truest of treasures! We scooped up all that were available in these two luscious colors, and we are so excited to offer them to you. Heavy satin bows completely covered on the fronts with seed beads, sequins and in the case of the "Sunset Pink" one, pearls. Fairly large at 5" across, these could be used in so many ways!
This lace is just beautiful. Matte silver metallic, 2" wide. Gorgeous. Very limited quantity available.
$8.00 per yard.
As we have said so many times before, you can never have too many of these beauties in your "stash"! :)
Lovely beading on the lightest of organza bases, you will find yourself using these for so many different kinds of projects. For size reference, the round ones are approximately the size of a quarter.
Very special price for the set!
$26.00 for the set of 5.
So pretty. A silver dupioni silk heart, stuffed lightly, embroidered and beaded both front and back! Finished with a chandelier drop and a hanging cord. Love!
Anyone who knows us can tell you that we are always on the lookout for a pretty chandelier, and this amazing ornament really caught our fancy! A lovely shape, with pale, smoky beads suspended from gold wires. Very tempted to hide these all away!! :)
Our ever-popular rosary chain. 8mm. Clear or Pink.
$10.00 per yard.
