This is my first "customer gallery" post. It features the incredibly talented jewelry designer Marina from Fanciful Devices. I have been a fan of hers for quite some time. She has a sophisticated, time-worn, otherworldly aesthetic that's like nobody else's. Look what she's made:
Above she has used some little flatback rhinestone circles in a simple, yet elegant way.
And here, she has given this vintage French glass buckle a new home in one of her beautiful sewn cuffs.
Above is a pair of her "rag & bits" earrings that use some of my glass navette rhinestones in prong settings at the top.
Here is another cuff - this time using one of my clear glass crown shaped sew-ons. I think this one may be my favorite!
And lastly, we have another pair of "rag & bits" earrings, using some old worn faceted iridescent beads. I had actually given her these beads because I didn't think I could sell beads that were so worn. As you can see, she has managed to give them a whole new life.
All of these items and more are currently available in the Fanciful Devices Etsy shop. She also has an interesting blog here. Please stop by and pay her a visit!
Now, the bar has been set very high for all of you out there. I expect to see some great things from you!
