ephemera necklace


I made this one for myself... using some of my favourite bits and pieces after I made necklaces for the show on the weekend.


Someone very special sent me the dragonfly and I saved him just for this!

The old typewriter keys stand for Saucy, Veto, Buddy and Loopy. I'm resisting the temptation to snip that tiny thread from the ribbon... it adds to the appeal, don't you think?

That looks fabulous!! If it were me I'd have to snip the thread or I'd end up pulling on it and ruin the whole thing!
(Fire me an email about how many charms I'm supposed to have for Sunday, please. I'm having a few senior moments.)

Okay, this is the perfect example of how I don't know you (b/c we haven't met) but feel like I know you. If I saw this piece in a store, I would shy away from it. It is too much for me too wear, too Chic or just too Saucy for me. However, the one person that I would IMMEDIATELY envision pulling this off is you - and quite gracefully, I might add. It is perfect for you and it screams your personality.

It looks gorgeous!! I'm glad to see you got the Secret Weapon to zap the typewriter keys. Man, do I wish he lived closer. Does he want to come to Florida for a weekend with his zapper?? ;-)

That really is a "you" necklace!! I have to say that I am not much of a jewellery person but as Angela said, I can see it on you very clearly!! It is lovely, I really like it, just not on me!!! I enjoyed looking at all the pieces you had at the crop too, I am constantly amazed at your many talents. You go girl!!

That is just beautiful! So creative & personal. Is the ribbon velvet or chiffon? Either way, it's completely elegant.

BTW... I'd snip the thread.

No! Don't snip that little bit, I love it! Also, this is nicer than anything at I've seen at Anthro, they should be buying from you.

Gorgeous as always Saucy! Will you wear it on Sunday? I can't wait to see it up close.

It looks fabulous!! How's your Etsy shop going? I've been travelling a bit to Mind Body Spirit fairs around England to sell my jewellery and it's been going well. This month I've got two bracelets featured in Spirit & Destiny Magazine in the UK which I'm soo excited about. Why don't you contact some magazines in Canada ans ask if they want to feature some of your stuff? You never know, you might be lucky!

WOWZA! A very beautiful and eclectic piece. I like the old english 5p (I wish they were still that size as our 5 pence piece now is tiny) I think you should snip the thread as someone like me may come along and give it a tug LOL!!! X

LOVELY. It's really the perfect word for you. Inside and out and everything you do. I know your Thanksgiving Day has long since passed, but just wanted to let you know, I am grateful that I can know you, miles away, from your blog. Random Acts to Cupcakes to swaps to movie bits to cheerios to brilliant uses of everyday things to secrets shared and bits of love...Lovely Soul R U.
XOXOXOXOX
