Throwing a Beading Party

Beading Daily had some great tips on how to throw your very own beading party, so I thought I'd share it with you. Beading Daily Bead Party Advice.  This is a great time of the year to begin planning one so that everyone can make a From: Me ,To: Me gift!

Frolic and Vamp Recap

We had a great time at Frolic and Vamp last Saturday night!  We got to dress up and hobnob with other dames and their gents for the evening. There was so much going on that I didn't get a chance to take as many pictures as I would have liked, but here are some of the highlights:

A view of our table complete with our Womannequin featuring three of the necklaces that we made especially for the evening (one is already up on our Etsy site ;)

A stylized view of our display (yep, that's me and Tara in the background!), taken by Anne James of Anne James Photography who was super cute and had a fabulous vintage Swarovski Crystal brooch that belonged to her grandmother on.  Sorry, I didn't get a pic of that :(

 The incomparable Vivienne Vavoom, Denver's Premier Burlesque Dancer who was the hostess of this wonderful evening.  You can take classes in everything from the art of the striptease to tassel twirling at her school Vivienne Vavoom's School of Burlesque
 My assistant Tara Walton whose work you're probably familiar with by now went as a lady gangster and rocked it!

 Julianna Aberle-McClellan of Julianna's Wardrobe donated these fabulous Gentleman's Spats to the Best Dressed Contest.  The Gentleman who won them was ecstatic to have them.  She makes custom spats too, so you should contact her!

This couple was just too adorable to miss!  These are their wedding clothes.  They got married on Friday the 13th so that they would remember the date!

First Annual Denver County Fair

I am pleased to announce that my Butterfly Garden Necklace won the First Place Blue Ribbon for Jewelry Design in the Fashion Pavilion at the Denver County Fair!
While I'm both humbled and ecstatic about the win, I didn't win nearly as many ribbons as my friend Julianna of Julianna's Wardrobe who won the Third Place Ribbon in the Jewelry Design Category, as well as both First and Third Place Ribbons in the Costume Design section!  Go team!
