Mountie Wife and Red came over to Saucy's tonight. It seems that Red is invited to a swanky party on the weekend and needed a little something to push her new LBD (little black dress) over the top. It was decided that pieces of jewelry from the dollar store would be clipped, snipped and reworked into something suitable for an occasion. It actually took three pairs of hands, yes it did.
Hmmm... Saucy is thinking that she should have photographed "the guts," or the actual purchased pieces that were reworked into this funky pearl-and-ribbon piece. Well, you can imagine, Dear Reader. If Red were to saunter into an event with all that Dollarama bling around her neck as it came out of the plastic wrap, she'd be a laughing stock.
It's funny, isn't it, how a mashup of junk from the dollar store that you'd never dream of putting around your neck can turn into something just the opposite?
The guts were reworked by twisting and turning and interlocking and weaving the existing pieces, some of them being snipped to size and some of them needed to be made longer to ensure some maximum contact between strands... Saucy didn't want it to shake apart when Red shakes it on the dance floor.
The inspiration for this piece can be seen here. Saucy also has a pretty big piece in the works - two of them, in fact. They might be ready to show you later this week.
Oh, and today there was another Cheerio photo shoot and Saucy has promised herself: this time, she will not stay up late into the night looking at all of the lovely pictures. Okay, well just a few. But she's not showing any of them to you until tomorrow, so there!
