Did you notice that I also started a jewelry blog? That's because I couldn't get the website that I created (using a template) to do what I want it to do -- which is show multiple angles/photos of each piece of jewelry and include more text. So, with each new piece of jewelry I make, I then need to photograph it, do a blog post about it and add it to my website.
And then there is Monkey Grass Hill and that chair that I want to redo in the kitchen. That project will require a chunk of time and who even knows if I'll like it this time around.
Wouldn't it be great if I could combine all my creative efforts into just one site?
The great think about blogging is that I write my own rules--and combing my sites is what I'm doing this week. So, here is What's New in the Julie LoRusso Jewelry line.
Fist up is a beautiful and playful triple strand of pink cultured freshwater pearls.
The strands are adorned with three individual flower pins. These pins were given to me by a friend, and while I don't think they qualify as vintage, I think they give this necklace the vintage feel. You can remove the pins and rearrange them any way your heart desires.
It's finished with a nice size sterling silver toggle clasp.
Next up is a fun yellow extra long necklace. I've laced it with some very light smokey quartz coins and silver colored beads.
I was going for fun and affordable with this one by not using sterling silver.
You can wear it long or wrap it twice around.
I think it looks high-end with a fun little edge!
Want a little more Luxe in your life?
You can never go wrong with layers of pearls! This necklace has three strands of stunning silvery pearls and is turned into a one-of-a-kind design with the fantastic vintage rhinestone brooch.
I found the brooch in an antique shop in Vermont about a month ago. You can just take it off it you're not in the mood for a a little sparkle. It's stunning either way!
Here we have another one of my "new vintage" designs.
This one is two strands of rich brown pearls with a vintage goldtone faux pearl earring. The earring findings have been removed it is permanently affixed to this necklace.
It's finished with a gold vermeil "s" hook clasp.
Another versatile pearl necklace is this double green beauty.
The brooch is still a brooch, so you can remove it when you want to.
This classic beauty is finished with a 14K gold-filled toggle clasp.
Need a little pick-me-up as the days start getting shorter?
I'm into the big chunky styles, but for you ladies who like something a little more subtle I've made this one-of-a-kind "new vintage" star.
Perfect for the holidays!
Finished with a small gold vermeil clasp.
Another blue Monday?.....
I flash of blue apatite can get you through it. How about two strands of little chips?
Finished with a sterling silver hook clasp.
Finally, when you just don't know what color to accessorize with. The watery colorless sparkle of genuine crystal quartz will complete your look.
These stones are "top-drilled" so they flip and flop and do a little dance around your neck. I finished this one with a rhinestone magnetic clasp. (not shown because by camera battery died).
I'll be back to posting about house and home things very soon.
